Welcome to our Primary Five Page!
Have a look at all the interesting work we have been creating this year.
Throughout the year in Primary 5 we get the chance to study some interesting topics.
Our topic is “My Environment and Me”.
We will learn about Early Bangor by studying how the monks used to live at the Abbey. We also study native and non-native trees identifying their leaves, seeds and fruits. We finish our topic with a study of Bangor from the 1950’s to present day. We will learn how to Waltz as our relatives would have done at Caproni’s Dance Hall. Our topic will give Year 5 the opportunity to Visit North Down Museum to learn more about the Monks of Bangor and a trip to Mount Stewart where we will embark on an exciting tree trail.
Our topic is “Amazing Earth”.
We will learn how to identify feelings from body language and how to express our feelings in a positive way. We will be investigating different climates and the local weather. In science we will look at electricity, its uses, dangers and how to build simple electrical circuits. We will also experiment with magnetism, investigating how a magnet works and the practical uses for them. We will focus on how to become a greener class by investigating the difference recycling can make locally and globally. We will learn about the importance of the Water Cycle and how precious water is. Our topic will give us the opportunity to compare our lives to those living in an extreme climate through a class project on Baffin Island.
Our topic is “Lifestyle Choices”.
We will learn how to make choices that will affect our health in a positive way. We will learn the benefits of eating a rainbow of foods and exercising daily. We will investigate the healthy food wheel and how exercise changes our breathing and heart rates.
Our topic is “Ancient Egypt”.
We will learn about Ancient Egyptian Civilization. We will study mummies, pyramids, pharaohs, the River Nile, food, farming and homes. Activities will include art and craft, drama and singing. We will take part in a fun, interactive Egyptian Day.
