Mrs A Johnston - Primary 5

Welcome to P5!

We have all had a great Christmas and are full of New Year’s Resolutions to work hard and have healthy habits! Our new topic this term is ‘Footprints to the Past’ and that will keep us busy finding out all about the Ancient Egyptians – how they lived, their work, gods, Pharoahs, tombs… and how they built those pyramids!

We’ll be making our own pyramids as part of our 3D Numeracy topic, painting Tutankhamun’s death mask and making Canopic Jars (part of the mummification process) out of modelling plaster. Our writing genre this term is instruction writing, and we will write instructions on how to mummify a pharoah and make an instructional video using our ipads. We’re looking forward to going to the Ulster Museum in Belfast on Tuesday 16th June 2020 on the train to see Takabuti’s mummy!

Our class will also be involved in the P4-7 stage production of the musical ‘Matilda’, which we hope you will come to see on Wednesday 12th or Thursday 13th February.

Keep up to date with us on Seesaw to see how we’re getting on! And if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me either at the gate, on the phone, on Seesaw or by email (

Mrs Johnston
