Welcome to P5
Mrs Kernaghan/ Mrs Quigley
P5 are enjoying the new opportunities that this year school has brought. So far everyone has worked incredibly hard! I'm so proud of you all! Everyone is keeping very busy, we have many children taking part in after school activities, learning a musical instrument and representatives on the Eco-Committee, School Council and Library. P5 will be a fun, enjoyable year for everyone!
We are going to learn about ‘Where We Live’ this term. The pupils will learn lots about places in Northern Ireland – their location, main features of Northern Ireland and key tourist attractions.
They will be given the opportunity to use simple maps to identify countries in the British Isles and counties in Northern Ireland. They will also try to develop an understanding of how settlers first came to Ireland. How did they travel? What are the inventions by early man? How different was early lifestyle to now? You will find out the answers to these questions over the next term and maybe we can answer a few questions of your own in the process.
All children in the class will be encouraged to take charge of their learning at home with any topics they are interested in and read as wisely as possible. They will also be given the opportunity to use iPads to enhance many areas of the curriculum.
Look out for web links, pictures and work produced by our class as we make our way through P.5.
