We had a great day today. We thought about why it’s important to read and tested our book knowledge in a picture reveal quiz. We then read with our friends, showing them our favourite book. After break we had the opportunity to make books, create cartoons, create book creators and design book covers and book marks. What a great day. Happy reading.
We started to hear our Greek presentations this afternoon. They were fantastic. The children worked so hard and taught us so much about their chosen Gods and Goddesses. Well done. We will hear more tomorrow and Thursday.
Good morning, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Homework for this week and news as follows:
Spelling – This week our spelling sound is ar as in particular and solar. Please complete all of the activities detailed in the jotter.

Letters regarding our Stirling Castle Trip went out last week. This trip will take place on Tuesday 24th September. We leave at 9:00 and return to school for hometime at 3:15. This trip is connected to our Scottish Wars of Independence Topic in class. The cost of the trip is £2. There is a shop at Stirling Castle, and as such the children are allowed a maximum of £5 to spend on the day. This trip to the shop will be time permitting, and as we have a busy day we may not be able to visit. Thank you for all of the offers for parent helpers. It is very much appreciated. A note will be put in the diary tomorrow for those who will be coming with us on the day.
Welcome back everyone and welcome to Primary 5! It was lovely to catch up with the children over the last couple of days. A homework letter will be issued towards the end of next week but I thought a few wee notes before then might be helpful.
Our PE days this year will be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please ensure children bring PE kit on all of these days and that everything is clearly labelled. Earrings should be taken out or covered with tape which children should bring from home. There are scissors in the class to cut the tape. Tape should not be shared due to potential allergies.
Children can bring a bottle filled with water to drink during the day- no juice or flavoured water please as this is very sticky if spilled!
Reading books will be issued in due course. All of the children have chosen a book from the class library to read in school.
Homework diaries have been issued and I would ask that you check this daily and sign please.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to working with you and your children in the coming year.
This will be my final post of Primary 5. Can you believe it is over? It has just flown by. What a fun filled year we have had! Thank you for being such a great bunch to teach. I would like to thank everyone for the lovely gifts received and all the kind words: they are greatly appreciated.
I hope you all have a wonderful summer. Stay safe and I will see you all in August.
During our H&WB lessons you had to create your own fitness activities. After setting up, you had to clearly explain, or demonstrate, the rules, to the other groups so they were able to participate in the activity. Today we were finally able to take part in the activities and by the looks of it, they were pretty successful.
Good afternoon! Well, can you believe we have reached the final week of Primary 5? It has been such a quick year. There is no official homework this week, however please feel free to complete personal reading to ensure you have achieved your target for this term.
