Welcome to P5's page.

World Down syndrome day

P5 feel very strongly about promoting awareness for Down syndrome day. 

We are happy to have Tadhg in our class at NPS! We feel that it’s important for more people to understand what it’s like to live with Down syndrome. We are all special and unique... we ALL deserve the opportunity to be respected and to achieve our full potential! 

Wear lots of socks on Thursday 21st March to promote this worthy cause!

We are poets and we didn't know it!!

P5 have been enjoying lots of poetry this term. We have been exploring different styles of poetry. As part of our study we wrote similes to describe ourselves and then rearranged the similes in the shape of ourselves. Can you spot who’s who?


P5 have been learning about 2D shapes.

We have been learning about 2D shapes. We can name and describe 2D shapes. We then created 2D shape characters that are wanted by the authorities! We created some sharp characters... or should we say vertices? 🤔😉
