P5 - Mrs Taggart/Miss Lewis

Welcome to your first term in P.5

We hope everyone had a great summer and are ready to take on the new challenges of P.5

Literacy, Numeracy and ICT are the priority focus in our classroom and the children will be completing a range of topics in all 3 areas to extend their learning.

Our WAU topic this half term is, “Healthy Body/Healthy Mind,” where we will be learning about how we can develop healthy habits, the importance of exercise and how to develop positive mindsets.  We will also be doing lots of research around this topic. We will be incorporating lots of Art/Craft and Science activities so keep your eye on our Facebook page and website where we will be sharing lots of our work.  

Our class novel is, “Gangsta Granny,” by David Walliams, a favourite of mine and the children.  

The children will also be given the opportunity to learn the Ukulele, a fabulous instrument for teaching rhythm and a great introduction to learning notation.  

Please continue to communicate with me via Seesaw.  This is a fantastic tool to support your child’s learning, upload homework and communicate with you as parents. We will also be using Mathletics and Accelerated Reader to enhance our literacy and numeracy skills.

Looking forward to a jam-packed, first term of learning in Primary 5. 

Mrs Taggart and Miss Lewis
