Welcome to P5M. Our teacher is Miss Magrath and our three teaching assistants are Mrs Rainey, Mrs Johnston and Mrs McDowell.

Mother’s Day Plant Pot Crafts

Lyric Theatre Visit

P5 had a visit from the Lyric Theatre on Friday. This informed P5 of the dangers of plastic to the environment, the effect of littering and how these can harm the animals both on land and in the sea. P5 had a great time with the ‘Recycling Superheroes’ and the ‘Bin Monster’.

St Patricks’s Day Leprechaun Craft

Pancake Tuesday

A Visit from Tim Bailie

Tim Bailie read his story ‘Mouse and The Moon Rocket’ to P5. He made it very enjoyable with lots of funny voices and props. (including mouse ears for Mrs Rainey!)

Odd Sock Day

P5M took part in Odd Socks Day. This is a day where children have the opportunity to express themselves and celebrate their uniqueness.

Remembrance Day Blackout Poems

P5 read the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’. After they had read this poem P5 choose individual words/phrases to create their own version of the poem.

They then took a black marker and ‘blacked out’ the words they were not using. This created wonderful, unique Remembrance Poems.

P5 finished off this blackout poem by designing beautiful backgrouonds.


This term P5 have been given the opportunity to go swimming until Christmas. Our instructors are Gareth and William. P5 love the bus journey to and from the pool. This is the first time some children have ever been in a pool and we at Buick are so proud of each and every one of them. P5 are loving being in the water, learning to swim and enjoying some play time in the pool at the end of each week.

Term 1

We have settled really well into the new routines at school and are enjoying being part of Key Stage 2.

We’ve been working hard in all areas of the curriculum and have enjoyed getting back to learning with our peers. We’ve been reading and writing different fables in Literacy and have developed our understanding of place value and operations in Numeracy. We’ve also enjoyed investigating lines in our environment.
