Primary Five

My Environment and Me

In our first topic we explore early Bangor.  We learn about the monks who used to live at the Abbey. We take a trip to the North Down Museum to find out more. Next we study Bangor from the 1950’s to present day. We learn how to Waltz just as our relatives would have in Caproni’s Dance Hall!
In this topic we also study native and non-native trees.  We identify their leaves, seeds and fruits. We embark on an exciting tree trail when we visit Mount Stewart.

Amazing Earth

We will learn how to identify feelings from body language and how to express our feelings in a positive way. We will be discovering different climates and the local weather. In science we will look at electricity, its uses, dangers and how to build simple electrical circuits. We will also experiment with magnetism, investigating how a magnet works and the practical uses for them. We will focus on how to become a greener class by considering the difference recycling can make locally and globally. We will learn about the importance of the Water Cycle and just how precious water is. Our topic will give us the opportunity to compare our lives to those living in an extreme climate through a class project on Baffin Island.

Lifestyle Choices

In this topic we will learn how to make choices that will impact our health in a positive way. We will learn the benefits of eating a rainbow of foods and exercising daily. We will investigate the healthy food wheel and how exercise changes our breathing and heart rates.

Ancient Egypt

In this topic we will learn about Ancient Egyptian Civilization. We will study mummies, pyramids, pharaohs, the River Nile, food, farming and homes. Each year the highlight of this topic is our fun, interactive Egyptian Day!
