Welcome to Primary 5 Miss Stevenson's web page.
We hope you enjoy looking at some of the things we have been learning about and creating through a range of subjects.
Creating Our Carnival Rides
As part of our new topic 'The Circus', P5 have been enjoying designing and creating their very own carnival rides using a range of junk materials. As an added bonus, the children even made some of their rides move! This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to use their STEM skills and enhance their creative abilities. I think we can all agree that they all did a fantastic job!
Fitness 8 Multisports Festival
Primary 5 were very lucky to take part in a 6 week programme with Fitness 8. During this programme the children learnt all about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including exercise, eating healthy and brushing your teeth. At the end of the 6 week, the pupils were invited to participate in a multi-sports event at Queens Physical Education Centre with a number of other schools, where they had the chance to show off their skills and all of the information they had learned during the programme. All of the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learned some very valuable life skills.
Creating electrical circuits
As the circus is filled with many different electrical items, we decided to study how electricity works. During this part of the topic we discussed the different types of energy, how one form of energy can transform into another, and looked at how to create a range of complete electrical circuits. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed using the different components to create a circuit, working together to ensure the circuit was complete and contained all of the correct components.
Fire Service Home Safety Talk
We were very lucky to have some of the crew from the Fire Service of Northern Ireland join the P5s today for a talk all about safety in the home. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about the 'goodies', such as Plan Man and Beep, and the 'baddies', such as Sizzle and Steam, in the home. They learnt how to prevent a fire in their homes and also what to do in the event of a fire in the house. They were invited to join the 'Safety Team' and were given different activities that they could do at home to ensure their houses are safe from fires. A massive thank you to the Fire Service for taking the time out of their busy day to talk to us.
