Year 5

Welcome to our P5 page, where we will keep you up to date with the exciting things happening in our class smiley

Class Trip

 

We took a Lagan Boat Tour and learned lots about Belfast. It was great getting the opportunity to see our city from a new perspective. Next we spent some time aboard the Belfast Barge where we learned even more about Belfast’s history and then had a disco!

Fire Safety 

 

P5 had a visit from the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue service. We learned lots of important things about fire safety, then we got a turn to spray the hose! Why not ask your child about some of the things they learned?

Shared Education Belfast Bus Tour

 

P5 are very lucky to be taking part in a Shared Education project with a P5 class from Holy Rosary Primary School. We had great fun with them on our first meeting. We played icebreaker games to get to know each other before going on a bus tour of Belfast, where we learned a lot about our city. Even the teachers learned things they didn’t know before! We’re looking forward to spending more time with the children from Holy Rosary next term.

P5 Cocktail Making 

 

We used what we have learned about capacity to make cocktails. We decided on our own recipes and measured the quantity of each juice for our cocktails. They were yummy!

Ancient Egyptian Artefacts at the Ulster Museum 

 

We went to the Ulster Museum to learn more about Ancient Egypt. We got to see real life objects from Ancient Egypt, some of which were 3000 years old! We weren't allowed to touch these because the oils in our hands could damage them, but we got to look at them up close. Have a look at the photos from our visit smiley
