The children had a fun 20 minute session with Activity NI today in order to promote their summer scheme. The children played dodge ball and GAGA ball; a game we had never heard of! More information regarding the summer scheme can be found on www.activityni.co.uk




Design & Technology

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Thu, June 06, 2019 03:22PM

The children were given the challenge to design and create an aircraft using the materials provided. Each child had 2 wooden clothes pegs, 10 lollipop sticks, a pair of scissors and pva glue. Some very creative and interesting designs, well done P6!




Grammar

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Wed, May 29, 2019 12:07PM

In our grammar lesson today, the children were learning about collective nouns. They worked in their Literacy groups to match the groups of animals with the relevant collective noun. Some groups used excellent strategies such as process of elimination to find out all of the answers. They then completed individual written activities and puzzles to reinforce their learning.





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.



Flight

ActivitiesPosted by Ms Elliott Fri, May 10, 2019 02:47PM

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!
