P5 Mrs Taggart

Welcome back Boys and Girls, Primary 5 are delighted to be back in school for a new school year! We have lots of exciting activities planned, linked to our topics.  Alongside our literacy and numeracy, the children will be following the well established “Jolly Phonics” scheme to facilitate our spelling. 

Our first topic is “The Human Body,” where we will be learning all about our skeleton, body parts and how our body works.  We will be incorporating lots of Art and Craft activities into this topic so keep your eye on our Facebook page and our Website where we will sharing lots of our work.

We will be continuing to use Seesaw this year.  It is a fantastic tool to support our learning, complete our homework and communicate with you as parents. We will also be continuing to use Mathletics and Spelling Shed to enhance our literacy and numeracy skills. 

This year, we are looking forward to lots of learning in our new Outdoor Classroom and discovering more about The World Around Us. We will also be incorporating P.E, ICT, and The Arts into our curriculum each week. 

We hope you are looking forward to the year ahead.

Miss Gault and Mrs Taggart
