P5 Mrs Peacocke’s class enjoyed preparing for their class assembly last week. Their assembly was called ‘The Climb’ and every boy and girl in Primary 5P helped to tell the important message to the rest of the school. They explained to the school that we don’t always find everything easy in life, both inside and outside of school. These things that we can find difficult are like climbing mountains. We have to break the climb down into smaller targets and if we take one small step at a time then we can reach and achieve our final goal. As we travel on our journey it is important to remember that God is always with us and that we need to keep on trying with His help.
Mrs Peacocke is very proud of every pupil in her class for all of the hard work they have put in to learning their class assembly and performing it so brilliantly. Well done Primary 5!!
The Craigavon Area Food Bank were overwhelmed by the generosity of the Waringstown parents when they collected the food items.As usual, you went over and beyond our expectations. All of the food items have now been received by the Food Bank.
Thank to Mr & Mrs Taylor who collected the food items and transported them to the centre.
The P6 children enjoyed helping to pack the car full of food!
Today P4G got to make robots from 3D shapes. They really enjoyed planning and putting the robots together and helped each other when things got tricky and tough. Thinking skills and personal capabilities were certainly tested today (not to mention patience!!)

The Half Marathon Club recently celebrated High 5's when they achieved the 6 mile mark! The children have really enjoyed the HM Club activities so far and have already shown great progression. We are almost half way there! Mrs Williamson and Mrs Brown are very proud of all the boys and girls who turn up very enthusiastically every week.
Primary 5 Mrs Williamson's class have been busy with numbers recently. They have been busy investigating sequences and how numbers can be recorded in a variety of ways. The children have loved learning through the following interactive Sequencing activities. Why not click on the links below and give them a go:
Primary 1 had a special day investigating number 3. They used counters to show different ways to arrange 3. They then drew those arrangements. The grand finale was when they chose their favourite arrangement of 3 to put on their iced biscuit - yum!!
Primary Two had a great fun during Apple Day. Everyone arrived at school dressed in red and green. The children really enjoyed taking part in all the apple activities throughout the day. The first activity was apple printing. Each child had the opportunity at making their own apple prints. There was great excitement during dunking for apples (with forks) and special apple themed games on the MUGA. After a fun filled day each child got an apple to bring home.
To promote Maths Week in Primary 1 we are showcasing lots of photographs of the children participating in maths activities during play based learning. We even had a number hunt in the sand!
We have exciting news to share – our school has been chosen to be part of the Sustrans Active School Travel Programme, starting this term! We are teaming up with the country’s leading sustainable transport charity, Sustrans, to encourage more journeys to school by foot or wheels. Active travel, such as cycling, walking and scooting to and from school, has a range of benefits including:
improving safety awareness
benefiting the environment
reducing the number of cars around the school gates, making our school safer for everyone
We will be working closely with Dave Wiggins, our Sustrans Active Travel Officer, who will help us promote active travel throughout the year:
offering cycling training to help pupils ride safely and feel more confident on their bikes;
working to get better facilities, including bike and scooter parking;
working with parents and carers so that they can help support the programme.
We understand cycling or walking to school is not easy for every family, and there will be opportunities for all children to participate in some activities/the programme.
Safety is very important to our school; for more information and advice look at the Active Travel Policy which will be placed on the Sustrans section of our website (From the drop down menu of ‘Our Eco School). Parents can help by accompanying their children to and from school and ensuring children are wearing helmets and bright clothes to help them be seen by other road users. The decision as to whether a child is competent to cycle, scoot or walk to and from school rests with the parents/carers.
If you are interested in helping out or have any questions about the project, please get in touch. You can also support this initiative by watching out for cyclists and pedestrians on your journey to school.
We look forward to seeing more children and parents/carers cycling, walking and scooting to school this year!
