Welcome to Primary 5a. Our teacher is Mr Mc Crossan and our learning support assistants are Mrs Devine and Mrs Dixon . This is an exciting year, the beginning of Key Stage 2. It's the year when children really start to become independent learners; using and developing all the skills they've been taught in previous years.

They will be expected to become more responsible for getting themselves organised for school - to have all the books and things they need to bring packed and ready each morning.

Unfortunately, we have some changes this year because of Covid 19 as it is really important that we keep each other safe.
Some of our routines have changed so we have no breakfast club at the minute. We now must come to school and wait on the playground. If our surname begins with A-K we come to school for 8.40am and if our surname begins with L to Z we come to school for 8.50am. On Friday you will wear your PE kit to school as we cannot change in school.

In Primary 5 chldren will be expected to know all number bonds to 20 and will be learning the times tables up to 12X12. This needs a lot of practising at home, every night if possible.

Most Primary 5 pupils are already independent readers but all children benefit greatly from being encouraged to read and discussing books with an adult.
