Welcome to P5 

Fantastic Fractions!

Primary Five have had a LOT of fun learning about fractions this term - the work was rather tricky but the Starmix really helped!

Check out the amazing World Book Day wooden spoon characters P5 created!

The NIFRS visited Primary 5 today to talk to them all about keeping safe.  The boys and girls had lots of fun finding the various cards and thinking about making a fire escape plan for their own house.  We'll forgive you if you don't recognise the children in the helmet below !

Fancy dress fun!  Congratulations to Sophie our winner. Well done to Harry and Bella our runners up!

Primary Five marks the beginning of Key Stage Two and is a very busy year.  We cover lots of new topics in numeracy and work with numbers up to 10000.  In literacy we continue to develop our reading through work in class and Accelerated Reader and learn to apply grammar rules to our own writing.

We study a range of topics including:

  • Mighty Me
  • Bright Sparks
  • Amazing Australia
  • Natural Disasters
  • Ancient Egyptians


Primary Five have been learning all about the body.  They completed investigations to find out more about how the body digests food.  They found out:

teeth crush and grind food to make it easier to digest,

acid in the stomach helps the body break down the food we eat,

muscles in the body get bigger and smaller to move food through the digestive system and 

chemicals help us get what we need from our food.
