Mrs A Johnston - Primary 5

Welcome to P5!

Welcome back to school at long last! I’m so pleased to have my new class all back in school after the lockdown and then our summer holidays. Things will be a little bit different this term – we will be in a P5 ‘Bubble’.  I’m looking forward to getting back into a happy routine with you all, enjoying the learning.

Our topic up until half-term is ‘Live & Kicking’! We will learn all about our bodies including our skeleton, major organs, muscles and heart. This will also involve finding out how to stay fit and healthy, and we’ll be testing our heart rates before and after exercise. We look forward to making animations on ipads about how to look after our teeth – we’ll share them with you on Seesaw! Through investigation work, we’ll also find out which drinks are best and worst for your teeth.

In Literacy we will be focusing on recount writing – writing about our own experiences. We will write emails to each other recounting our lockdown experiences. Our Numeracy work will focus this half term on revision, place value and addition up to ten thousand. Topic work will include measuring length (starting with our heights), time (analogue and digital to the nearest five minutes), studying 2D shape and reading from and drawing bar charts.

So we have a busy term ahead and hope you’ll keep up to date with us through our regular newsletters and Seesaws. Watch this space for updates and photos!

As always, if you have any concerns regarding your child, please give me a ring, or contact me on Seesaw or by email –
