MFT fun run

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Fri, May 17, 2019 02:03PM

What a fantastic day the Primary 6 children had today at the MTF Fun Run. The pupils were split into 6 groups and ran, jogged or power walked for 1 mile around the Castle Grounds. The children were a credit to the school showing excellent behaviour and attitude! Well done P6!

Nets - 3D shapes

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Wed, May 15, 2019 01:25PM

Today in Numeracy, the children were exploring the different nets of a cube. First of all, they predicted if the drawn nets would correctly make a cube when constructed together. After that, they tested out their predictions using magnetic squares. The children had to create the net on the sheet and attempt to fold it into a cube.

We have the first wall display up for our new topic 'Flight'. Throughout this topic, we will be covering subjects such as, birds of prey, migration, early flight, powered flight and modern flight. In the World Around Us, we will be taking part in lots of design & technology lessons, science experiments and studying the history of flight.

Check out our 'birds on a wire' silhouette paintings and the 'birds of prey' fact files already created!

We had a special treat today for PE! Chris, from the Under 19s NI volleyball team, came to school to coach the children how to play the sport. The class really enjoyed their lesson and many are keen to take it up as a sport when they attend secondary school!

Should water charges be introduced in Northern Ireland?

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Fri, April 12, 2019 01:44PM

This week in Literacy, primary 6 have been reading about, discussing and debating whether water charges should be introduced in NI. The children formed their own opinions on the subject after reading about the Government and their former plan of water charges. They then planned and wrote their own balanced argument relating to this debate. Each child was encouraged to justify their opinions with reasons but to also outline what other people may think. We went to Mrs. McIlwraith's class to present some of our arguments and to take a vote on their opinions.

Check out our fabulous art work. We have been working on this art project for the last 3 weeks! Starting with the 'water-resist' technique, then lino-printing, then collaging with tissue paper and black card.

Science investigation

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Thu, March 21, 2019 01:19PM

Today we conducted a science experiment on how to make a bubble bounce. The children made predictions, created a findings table, listed the equipment, drew diagrams and evaluated during the investigation.

The independent variable of this experiment was a cotton glove. Once this was added, the children could bounce a bubble using their hands.

The Daily Mile

AnnouncementsPosted by Ms Elliott Fri, March 15, 2019 01:19PM

Today we completed 'The Daily Mile' with Johnny from SUSTRANS. We were timed 15 minutes to complete as many laps of the playground as possible. Several children preferred to power walk but that's okay, as long as they were being active! Some children even managed over 25 laps in the 15 minutes!
