P5 Update

We celebrated poetry day with poet Sally Crabtree. We created some songs, edible poems and magic rings that help us to write amazing poems. Most importantly we used our creativity learning power.

As part of our Make £5 grow Virgin Money Project, we pitched our business idea to visitors from Citibank. They gave us constructive feedback to further support our business venture. 

As part of outdoor learning, we investigated shape, angles and measurement at the Scottish parliament. We were able to find a variety of shapes and angles on the parliament building. We used this information to create a fact file. 

We worked collaboratively to produce a piece of art work that represents our city. We liked the style of Rob Hain and investigated how he uses colour and how he represents buildings. We used a bit of this and a bit of our own creativity. Everyone contributed. 


We participated in a health and wellbeing craft morning. We enjoyed making some seasonal crafts. 


We have started learning about the Georgians. We have been designing Georgian style wigs with ICT. 


Thank you for looking!

Welcome P5 2019/2020

Welcome back! We are looking forward to the year ahead in Primary 5.

Every day in P5 each child will need to bring a water bottle, a full PE kit with indoor shoes, a school bag and a coat (not a hoody). On Mondays beginning 2nd September pupils will also need their swimming kit.

Maths and literacy homework will resume school week beginning Tuesday 17th September. This is after the information session with CYP on Wednesday 11th September (invites to follow). In the meantime continue to practise times tables, number bonds and encourage reading of a wide range of texts for enjoyment. Before this we will be sending home an ‘All about me’ task. Look out for this in our new homework folders. 

We look forward to sharing our learning with you.
