P5P have had an exciting start to Term 4. We completed our 10 weeks of swimming and received our certificates just before the Easter holidays. We learned about different swimming strokes, techniques and survival skills. We even got to wear our pyjamas!

We launched our final context which is Japan! We started off by exploring exactly where Japan is on a world map. We have also been learning some Japanese words and even had a go at writing our school values. This week we have created Spring Haiku poems, counted to five in Japanese and learned lots of interesting facts. Did you know Japan is made up of over 6000 islands?

We want to say a huge thank you to all our wonderful parents and carers who joined us at the end of last term to share in our Nature Detectives family learning. We loved seeing all those Mini-National Parks and listen to some creative stick stories.

P5 have been learning some impressive pieces of music inspired by Space ahead of this years Hand Bell Festival at Newton Primary. We have been practicing our hand bells with Mrs Moore to get ready for the festival in May.

We are excited about our last term in Primary 5 and cannot wait to learn more about Japan!
