Mrs O'Boyle P5
Welcome back to school for another fun yet productive year in P5! This year, they will experience many other new things in our class, including the topics Titanic, Earth and Beyond and Space. Already this half term, the class have begun learning about the Titanic.
In Literacy, we have also begun a new class novel, ‘The Twits’, which is the hilarious story of a nasty couple who finally get their comeuppance at the end! We also continue to encourage lots of reading through our Accelerated Reading programme and the children can monitor their own progress through our class display of individual targets-this will keep each child motivated and will also promote celebrating success when our targets are reached!
Currently in Numeracy, the pupils are exploring place value of 4 digit numbers and have been writing these both in numerals and words, sequencing numbers and identifying odd and even numbers. They will progress to rounding of numbers to the nearest 10 and 100 and also addition and subtraction.
Shared Education will also continue this year with our partner school, Millburn Primary and the children with no doubt enjoy many interesting and valuable sessions and activities together. We hope all our P5s settle well back into school and have a very enjoyable first term!
