Primary Five Working on Time Durations
Primary Five practising for sports day, they are working really hard!
Primary 5 have been very busy investigating the different melting points of different types of chocolate as well as researching how the different chocolate types affect our senses. It was a very tasty experiment.
Today was teams game activities day and all pupils enjoyed taking part in the session with Oisin. It was great fun and both teams did very well.
This week has involved a lot of practical work using iPads and getting ready for Sports Day. We have been working hard on understanding fractions, pre fixes and suffixes as well as enjoying our new class novel - Gangsta Granny. In PE and at home we have been very active taking part in different exercises to get ready for the big day.
There has been lots of hard work taking place in Primary 5. We have started our new topic which is the Journey of Chocolate as well as working hard on creating boats as part of a home project. On Friday we worked on our Numeracy Number operations as part of the NSPCC number day.
It's been a busy week indeed.Primary 5 have enjoyed learning Hurling/Camogie for PE as well as finishing off our Ancient Egypt topic. We have worked on multiplying and finding different angles in Numeracy and working on Disussion writing as well as prefixes and suffixes in Literacy. At the end of the week we enjoyed a treat for 50p Friday.
We have worked hard on our Easter Art this week in Primary 5. Pupils have designed and made Easter cards as well as Pom-Pom chicks.
We had a great afternoon outside with the new lambs. We had plenty of photos taken of the children holding the lambs as well.
Primary 5 were treated to a lovely selection of treats for 50p Friday. Thank you very much!!!!
We enjoyed taking part in World Water Day.
Primary 5 have been making Egyptian jewellery as part of our topic.
Well done to Emily for being awarded her next belt in Taekwondo. She has been working very hard on this every week. Super work.
Christmas Art in Primary 5.
Primary 5 enjoyed lots of Christmas activities as well as opening our Christmas in the box present. They enjoyed seeing Santa before eating all their treats and watching the movie.
Our topic in Primary 5 is Famous Landmarks so this week we have been looking at man-made and natural Lanmarks. We focussed on looking at the Giants Causeway and the Blarney Castle. Using the research carried out we decided to build a model of the Blarney Castle as our STEAM activity. From the pictures you can see their was a lot of planning, designing and constructing.
Getting ready for Christmas. The pupils created their own snow globe art for Christmas. As you can see we have lots of amazing artists in Primary 5.
Today we have looked how we can bring more STEAM activities into our topic about landmarks. We used spaghetti and marshmallows to design and build structures. The focus was on making sure the structure is secure and was able to stand freely. It was a very messy but enjoyable activity.
