P5/6

Welcome to P5/6!

A little bit about our class:

There are 12 girls and 11 boys in our class. Miss McClean is our teacher and Mrs Mullan is our classroom-assistant. This year we are focusing on becoming more independent learners. Each month we change the classroom jobs to ensure everyone has a chance to demonstrate their responsibility. We work REALLY hard in our classroom, but we also know it is important to have fun along the way!

Below are some key days to remember when packing your school bag:

Monday - Spelling test book (Don't forget to get it signed)

Tuesday - Swimming gear

Thursday - Library book

Monday - Friday make sure you have your homework diary, learning journal, homework book, reading book and pencil case.

 

We have had a very busy September in our room and here is why. Below is an outline of what we will be covering this year across the curriculum.
