What a brilliant first half term in Year 5!   As a close to our Hola Mexico! topic we have had a Mexican themed day where we have made 3D alebrije models and tried a selection of Mexican food. (See the gallery for the full selection of photos) .

Paired Reading - Scoil an Linbh Íosa

It has been lovely to see our Year 5 and Year 2 children enjoying paired reading.  We have been helping the Year 2's with their sounding out, blending and comprehension and the Year 2's have been making sure we read with expression.   

(Take a look at the gallery at the bottom of the page to see all of the photos of us reading together).




Bling Your Bike' Competition

I will be teaching you on a Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and Mrs Lax will teach you all day on a Tuesday.  We will have Mrs Elian supporting us in a morning and Mrs Marsh in an afternoon.  

We have some fantastic topics planned for you and I can't wait to teach you all about them - starting with MEXICO this first half term.

Our start and finish times have returned to normal now so our day starts at 8:45am and hometime is 3:15pm.
