Our topic this half term is all about electricity. We thought of ways we use electricity and things we would like to find out.

 We completed some investigations to find out more about our brains!

Mighty Me

At the beginning of Primary Five we learn all about the human body.  We have been thinking about what we would like to learn.  We tried to put everything we would need to make a human body into a bag, it was tricky to spell the words!

P5 Rules!

We thought about rules we should follow to make our classroom a happy place.  We are looking forward to earning a night off homework or getting to eat our break on the teachers’ seat!
