Holy Rosary Primary School, Sunnyside Crescent Belfast

P5 Mr McVeigh

Welcome to our class page!

We are looking forward to term 2 in Primary 5. 

 

Connected Learning

We have had such a busy first term, learning about life in the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the life and times of The Celts in Ireland and Britain.

The Catholic Faith

We had First Holy Communion within the first few weeks of term and we have enjoyed the Season of Advent; preparing for Christmas. We worked hard to give a huge donation to the South Belfast Food Bank. We recorded our class Advent Service and sent it out to our families- it was beautiful.

Planning Ahead

This term we hope to learn more about materials and how things fly (those natural examples found in the Animal Kingdom and those brought about through human engineering and design).

Things To Keep In Mind:

P.E. is every Tuesday and Wednesday, weather permitting.

School Meals: meals need to be booked in advance by parents using the School Money App (by Eduspot), even if you are in receipt of free school meals. (Only recipients of free school meals can book a school meal until further notice)
