Primary 5 Blog

Welcome to the Summer term from Primary 5!

Primary 5 enjoyed an exciting first week back after the Easter break. We completed our A3 floor books on Egypt and Madagascar-our chosen countries within Africa for our focus study. We finished our Africa project with some beautiful artwork using paint and pastels to emanate the vibrant colours of the sunset. With help from Mrs B, we then cut out silhouettes of trees and animals to contrast against the background of dynamic shades.

Primary 5 really enjoyed the Eid party organised by some Royal Mile parents last Friday. The class had a delicious snack, a gift, face painting and henna. They had a brilliant time and thank you so much to the mums who hosted it!

Our beautiful henna hands!

Last Tuesday, Primary 5 enjoyed a wonderful trip to Holyrood Palace where we were welcomed in the fantastic new Education Centre by Annie, who told us more about Queen Elisabeth the Second and her history. We then had a fascinating private tour of Holyrood house, followed by a workshop where we designed bunting for the Jubilee celebrations.

Please be aware that homework will restart on Monday in the usual format. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
