Primary 5

Welcome to P.5

Welcome to P.5 where we are working hard on lots of things! 

This year already we have continued to add, subtract, multiply and even divide!  We have worked on different strategies to solve word problems! 

In literacy we have worked hard on our writing skills! Recently we have been looking at how to write explanations! One of our favourite books has been "An Alien in a Jam Factory"! We were even lucky enough to have a zoom call with the author Chrissie Sains and we got to show her our Jam inventions!! We have invented our own robots this term too! 

We love doing our exercises too and getting outdoors to our amazing forest too! In PE we love using the foam sticks to work out in the classroom when we can't get outside! 

Return to Cedar

Good afternoon,

Just wanted to reach out to you all and say hello.  We have been in school since Tuesday making preparations for the children’s return in the coming weeks. 


As you will be aware there will be changes to Cedar as we all knew it before Covid.  Let me assure you that I will make these changes as easy as possible for your children to adjust to,  as well as yourselves as parents. 


I have completed a video for the children, please show this to your child.

I have also added in a list that I am asking each child to bring to school to help us over the year with resources.


If possible could each child bring in; 1 box of tissues, 1 liquid soap (anti-bacterial preferably), 1 packet of disinfectant wipes, their own individual have sanitiser is optional.  Please be aware that any items brought into school will stay in school to reduce the spread of infection.


As far as stationary is concerned, I have a pack for each child in the classroom which contains; pencils, glue, a rubber, a sharpener, a ruler, scissors, white board, whiteboard pen and colouring pencils.  The children will not be allowed to share any of these.  I know some children may like to have their own pencil case, however if this is so, it must be a plastic one that can be wiped and of a regular size.  Believe me, I have two children at home who have been begging me for a trip to Smiggle………….if possible can we keep the lovely, scented, furry stationary at home? J


Please bear in mind – any stationary brought in the classroom is kept in the classroom and cannot go home.


Our P.E days are on Tuesday and Thursday.  Please send your child into school in nayv/black jogging bottoms and trainers on those days as P.E bags are not permitted in school.


No school bags are permitted in the school either.  We would also ask if children could bring in a pair of wellie boots to be kept in school for the foreseeable as we will try to be outside for lessons when possible.  The children will need a coat every day in school.


I know there is a lot of info to take on board and forgive me if I have missed out on anything – as you know regulations are changing daily so I am trying to keep you as up to date as possible.  If you need to contact me please e mail me to this address and I will try my best to get back to you.


I look forward to seeing you and your lovely children.
