Welcome to Primary Five






Welcome to the P5 home learning hub!

First of all a massive THANK YOU for being responsible learners and following the instructions to click onto this page!

Although we will miss being together in school, I will post weekly activities for you to complete from your home learning pack.


Try your best to get up at a reasonable time each morning and get dressed! It's a  lot more difficult to be productive in your PJ's! :)

Topic- Water. This week we are going to try another experiment. Hopefully you were able to pick up some sandwich bags and blue food colouring over the weekend (If not try using an old blue felt tip to colour the water). The experiment is all about the water cycle.

The experiment is outlined in the sheet attached. Hopefully the sun will be shining this afternoon!

Read through the instructions. Before you begin I want you to make a prediction. What do you think will happen? (The picture at the bottom of the experiment page might give you some clues if your not sure!).
