Review of 2016- Terms 1 & 2 P5 had an excellent 2016- all of the pupils have been working really hard in all areas. Throughout the year some of the pupils said the following about their learning: I’ve learned how to classify animals and find out what I group they belong to.
I I enjoyed doing science. CHLOE
I’m better at writing stories Ibecause I’m putting the full stops in the right places. LEAH. S

For the past two years I have organised a Burns Suppers with the P7 classes but this year P5 and P5/4 will be jointly responsible for hosting our annual Burns Supper. This is a fantastic enterprise opportunity for the pupils to organise. More information will follow. Information leaflets made by the children were sent home on Thursday. Information about buying tickets coming soon. It will be on Wednesday 25th January at 6pm.
Preview of 2017- Term 3 This term P5’s IDL (interdisciplinary learning- topic work) will be called Poles Apart. We will be learning mostly about Antarctica but will also be looking at the Arctic and comparing both places. We will be learning most of our maths through our IDL. In Science we will be learning about Reactions Matter, with lots of practical experiments which the pupils have shown lots of interest in doing. In P5 we are continuing to use Class Dojo, an online points system. Pupils will be working towards individual, group and whole class targets. Pupils will also use our whole school ELF Ladder as an incentive to work hard.
