Welcome to Primary 5

Primary 5 is an exciting and fun year – our first in Key Stage Two. It is full of lots of fantastic opportunities to learn and grow together.

Our teacher is Miss Cunningham and our lovely classroom assistant is Miss Hynds.


In Primary 5 we encourage a love of reading and writing!  Our daily Literacy lessons cover a wide range of skills and topics through comprehension, phonics, punctuation and grammar, editing skills and writing activities. We continually develop our talking and listening skills through drama games, hotseating, presenting and debates.


In Primary 5, we will also be expanding our knowledge and understanding within the five main areas of Numeracy - Processes in Mathematics, Number, Data Handling, Measures and Shape and Space. We love learning through practical experiences, both indoors and outdoors and developing our problem-solving skills.

Primary 5 are Mathletics whizz kids and we are also enjoying our new app, Times Table Rock Stars.  

World Around Us

In P5 this year we look forward to learning through our cross-curricular topics of; Mighty Me, The Rainforest, St Patrick in Ireland, The Egyptians and Out Of This World. We develop our Thinking Skills and Capabilities, all whilst having fun together.


Each term we focus on a different ‘Using ICT’ desirable feature. Developing our skills throughout the term, we then put these into action and complete our final project. Some of the foci includes; Computational Thinking and Coding, Music & Sound, Film & Animation and many, many more.


Primary 5 are members of our school choir and lots of us receive small group tuition. This year we will be developing our skills in listening, composition and performance.


Primary 5 enjoy participating in PE lessons each week. We thoroughly enjoy our Acti-Sport sessions and have begun our swimming lessons at the leisure centre. We love playing together, staying active and keeping fit!

Stay tuned to our class page to see what we get up to throughout the year.
