All primary 5 classes shared the books they have been making over the past few months with their parents in an open afternoon in which they heard from their children all about the process. It was a great success and there was a buzz in the air. What an achievement. Parents and pupils will hopefully share their views and experiences here,

In Reading today Primary 5 have been learning about Alliteration poems and how to write them. Here is one they wrote as a class, each pair shared a line
Crying crowds coming from California
Singers singing all about
Pushy parents dashing for their children
People pushing, people screaming
Famous friends sing for them
Rock and Rolling all around
People coming coolly then crying
Cheering and chewing happily
Scream and shout as he came out
Obama speaks his speech for the USA
People yelling, people yapping
for President Obama
Primary 5 have been learning about different styles of poetry. They have been trying their skills at kennings. Here are their best lines. Can you guess what they are describing? They will be sharing other poems here as well.
Five pupils in primary five formed a band at home and have been practising hard for their first gig in front of an audience which went ahead as planned at the end of last term.
