Welcome to P.5. We have two P.5 classes and our teachers are Mrs Turley and Mr O'Neill. The environment in our classrooms is embracing the ethos of the revised curriculum and encourages the children to take responsibility for their own learning.
Roots of Empathy
Both P5 classes are involved in the Roots of Empathy programme. They look forward to visits from their baby teachers and their mums. Children love to see how their baby has grown with each visit and to learn about new things they are able to do. Learning about how babies express their feelings and grow and develop is fascinating!
P5O had their 7th visit from Baby Ella and Laura today. Communication was our theme this week and we had great fun chatting with Ella and singing nursery rhymes to her. She also made her very first attempt at crawling! What a memorable visit!
P5T enjoyed another Roots of Empathy visit from Baby Erin and her Mum Cliodhna. We noticed a lot of changes since the last time we saw Erin. She clapped her hands while we sang to her. She was saying "Mama" & "Gaga". She also has 2 new teeth!! We gave Erin a book of wonderful nursery rhyme drawings that the class had made for her.
P5 have been learning about angles in Maths. We did a hunt around the classroom to find right angles and found loads. We also found out that angles which are less than 90 degrees are called acute and ones bigger than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees are called obtuse.
As part of our Early Man topic in World Around Us, P5 had great fun working small groups to build Mesolithic homes. We were so impressed by how well the groups worked together and it was lovely to see proud happy faces with their finished houses.
