How do I know what is happening in P5?

With the move from P4 to P5 the emphasis is on the pupils taking more responsibility for recording their own homework independently and 

making sure it is done well and handed in on time.  The diary should be in their schoolbag every day so that you can refer to it for information on homework and key events. Feel free to send messages through the jotter/diary yourself. 


Mary Queen of Scots Topic​



Did you know that she was married 3 times?

·         Did you know that she was accused of murder?

·         Did you know that she was the Queen of Scotland at 6 days old?


Here’s what we have thought about the topic so far:

‘Her life was very interesting.’ Ben Q

'It’s been really fun learning about her life.’ Finn 

‘It has been fascinating learning about Scottish history and all of the things that she did.’ Lucas

‘It’s amazing how all of the events really happened, a long, long time ago.’ Jorgi

‘It’s a very fun topic and I am enjoying it.’ Kyan

‘I know that Mary was born at Linlithgow Palace in 1542.’ Natasha

‘This topic has been amazing. I didn’t know she had a baby’. Shaneah

Next term we will be finding out how Mary Queen of Scots’ story ends and how her story links to Bonfire Night celebrations.
