Welcome to the P4/5 news page. There are 20 energetic and enthusiastic children in our class under the direction of teacher Mrs Briege Baxter and classroom assistant Mrs Edel Mc Cusker.

This term our class topic is World War 2. We will be finding out all about how it started, evacuation, rationing, the Blitz and much more.This topic will permeate through the other curricular areas.

In Literacy we will continue to develop talking and listening skills through circle time and drama. Through reading we will investigate the features of non-fiction texts. We will be writing reports, letters and poems. Accelerated Reading is an important part of our school day. Please encourage your child to read their AR book nightly.

In Numeracy we will be working on 2D shape, area, perimeter, vertical addition and subtraction of 3/4 digit numbers with bridging.There will be a weekly mental maths quiz so make sure to practice nightly.

In ICT we will be using the ipads to research our topic and will use this information to compile a tri-fold leaflet using Microsoft word or publisher.

On Monday afternoons the class enjoy a dance lesson with the very talented Chris Cross. Every Tuesday the children have an Irish lesson with Mrs Mc Mahon. The children are currently learning parts of the body. The children will also benefit from the expertise of Gaelic coach Macartan Mc Kenna.
