The children in P6 McLeod worked in pairs to design and create their own wooden Viking photo frame. They make a wonderful display at the back of the classroom. Well done P6! 🙂
P6M were learning to write effective instructions. The children made a chocolate apple and wrote their own instructions on how to make it for others to follow.
P6M and their P6 partners from Presentation trialled the Numeracy Cube, Izak9, together. They completed lots of Problem Solving activities, using the Cubes to find answers to the problems. Most importantly, the children really enjoyed working together, providing them with valuable opportunities to work well together. Everyone is looking forward to exploring Izak9 in the near future.
Global Learning Programme
P6M explored the topic of poverty with their partner class from Presentation P.S. They focused on food waste in our school canteens. They weighed the food waste from the previous school day and calculated how much waste there would be over a week, month and over a year in just one school. Pupils discussed ways to reduce food wastage both in the home and at school.
The P6 children visited the Navan Fort Centre, Armagh, to participate in workshops about Viking life. This was part of their World Around Us topic in Term 1.
P6 children visited W5 to participate in Light workshops, as part of their World Around Us topic. They also had time to explore the different levels and climb on the Climbit frame. Everyone had a fantastic time.
The children enjoyed using tissue paper, white paper and paint to create their own unique winter wonderland.
Digital Storytelling Project
P6M took part in a Digital Storytelling Project on the theme of ‘Differences’ in class. They learnt how to be film makers and create their own storyboard in groups. They used these storyboards to help them take pictures using the correct camera angles on the iPads. In pairs, the children then used iMovie to create their own movie. All of the children enjoyed the project and made fantastic film makers.
P6M explored the topic of Fairtrade during Term 2a as part of World Around Us. The children enjoyed teaching the rest of the KS2 children and their families about fairtrade bananas in their recent assembly. The important message delivered by the children was that each and every one of us can make an important difference to people living in poor countries, simply by buying fairtrade goods in the supermarket.
As part of the Fairtrade topic, the children designed and created a three wheeled vehicle in small groups. The vehicle had to carry people and goods to market, therefore the wheels had to move on their model. Mrs McLeod thought that they all did a fantastic job!
Both P6 classes recently enjoyed an event at St. John the Baptist College which celebrated cultures from all over the world. Children sampled different foods, participated in an African drumming session, dancing and various craft activities. A wonderful day was had by all.
Bee Safe 2018
Both P6 classes recently attended the ‘Bee Safe’ programme run by the local PSNI branch. Here children participated in a variety of workshops exploring how best to keep safe in the home and community.
Shared Education- CRED
P6M enjoyed working with their friends from P6R in Presentation P.S. Together they explore identity and culture. In groups, they designed and created a joint logo to represent everyone in their group.
British Science Week
The children enjoyed creating their own volcanic eruption by adding water, vinegar, red food colouring and baking soda together. We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures to see what happened next.
The children enjoyed designing then making their own Easter pop out card as part of technology.
