 Week beginning 1st June 2020

Important Notice about Roots of Empathy!

Hi everyone, it's Mrs Nolan and Mrs Gardner here.  We hope you are all keeping well and we miss seeing you during our Root of Empathy visits. 

Usually at the end of the year, we create a 'Wishing Tree' for our babies and we still want to do that, but with a difference.  Instead of physically giving them a Wishing Tree, we will create one 'virtually'.  All you have to do is think of one wish for your Roots of Empathy baby.  What do you wish for Baby Emmie or Baby Eimile when they are your age?  It can be anything, for example, to ride a bike, have lots of friends, be happy, be safe, enjoy reading, know times tables.

Email your wish to either Mrs Gardner or Mrs Nolan by Friday 5th June

Start with..."When Baby ______ is my age, I wish she can/is_________"

Year 5AB email Mrs Nolan - nnolan570@c2kni.net

Year 5MS email Mrs Gardner - lgardner622@c2kni.net

Thank you for your help and we look forward to hearing from you very soon.

From Mrs Gardner and Mrs Nolan

Good Morning P5 and welcome to a new week of Home Learning!

For spelling this week you can continue on with the next 14 words and for tables you can concentrate on the 6 times tables.

If you go into BBC Bitesize Daily lessons Y5/P6 they have a whole set of great videos and activities on the Ancient Egyptians. Please keep any work you do and we will be delighted to see it when we are back at school. Alternatively you can take a photo of it and ask your parents to email it to me or Mrs McGirr.

Also on BBC bitesize this week they are doing lessons on prepositions on Y4/P5 page which would be really good revision. Your work can be completed in your English exercise book.

You can continue working from your Mastermaths and Mental Maths books this week-try to do some Maths every day if possible. For some extra activities BBC bitesize are doing lessons on addition of 3 and 4 digit numbers.

Also for Art this week you could do some research on the artist Matisse. Write down some interesting facts about him and try to copy one of his pieces.

Hope that this keeps everyone focussed on their work this week. We will be in touch very soon with some more ideas and in the meantime please email us with any pictures of work or queries you may have.

Mrs Sammon and Mrs McGirr.

A fraction sheet for you to try

Please find a KWL sheet for you to complete below. We do this at the beginning of each topic to find out what the children know and what they would like to find out. As we progress through the topic, pupils will write down things they’ve learned in the ‘L’ column. You can download this sheet or you can take a page in your topic book and divide it into 3. Have fun,

A decimal worksheet for you to try. Enjoy!



Hello P5

Hope everyone is doing well. You probably still have lots of work to do from your packs that we sent home but just in case you would like some extra activities, we are going to start putting up some new ideas here for you.

BBC Bitesize have started doing daily lessons on their website. You can follow the link to Northern Ireland KS2 and they have super lessons for you to take part in every day.

On the 24th April they are a doing a lesson on the poem Please Mrs Butler by Allan Ahlberg which sounds really good. They did a lesson today on place value in Maths  which would be good revision for everyone.

We are all huge fans of the Learning NI Newsdesk in P5. You can go into this through your my school login page. If your password has expired or is not working you can get your parents to send me an email and I will reset it for you.

My email is msammon369@c2kni.net and I can do this for both classes.

This week at home we would like you to go back over your 3, 4 and 5 times tables so that you know them really well. We are also going to post a  spelling list for you to start working on. This week you can concentrate on the first 14 words.

Also over the next couple of weeks we would love you to design a simple card for our Roots of Empathy babies. Mrs McGirr's class for baby Emmie and Mrs Sammon's class for baby Emilie. On that card we would like you to write a wish for the baby's future- for example I would like Baby ____ to have lots of good friends. Enjoy doing this lovely activity and we will collect them in when you are all back at school.

Finally for now we hope that you are all getting the chance to enjoy reading lots of fabulous books. We will be in touch soon again. 

Hello everyone, its Mrs Gardner here. I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I know its been quite a while since we all have seen each other and I miss you all. I have been talking to Mrs McCluskey and she has sent me a beautiful video of baby Emilie. She has changed a lot since the last time we all were gathered around the green blanket. Have a look and see what she can do now.

Baby Emilie can now

  • Sit up
  • Laugh
  • Clap her hands
  • Hold things in 1 hand
  • Hold her bottle in her hands and drink
  • Move around on her belly, she is almost crawling
  • Use the pincer grip to hold small objects

She has grown and developed so much and can do all of these new things. It is so lovely to see her and thank you to Mrs McCluskey for sending us this.

We hope you and your beautiful family are keeping safe and we look forward to seeing you both soon.
