The Easter Bunny made his annual appearance in Waringstown Primary School along with a selection of goodies and treats for our competition prizes.
The boys and girls and staff all loved spending some time with the Easter Bunny in a fun filled, egg-cellent assembly.
Have a lovely Easter break.
Friday 23 March 2018 is a non-uniform day for all classes with a suggested donation of £1.00. This non-uniform day is hoped to raise enough money for our school to donate towards the training of a new guide dog within the Guide Dogs NI organisation.
The Police Officer came to visit the boys and girls in Primary 1 today. She taught us two very important numbers to phone if we need the police. She said we must phone 999 if there is an Emergency and we must phone 101 if we need the Police but it is not an Emergency! The Police Officer showed us the different items she has on her belt and we loved when she handcuffed our friends. Thank you for coming to visit us Police Officer and for teaching us so much about your special job and thank you for keeping us safe!
In Scripture Union this week we learnt about St. Patrick and heard how he taught the people of Ireland about God using a Shamrock…God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We watched the CEF DVD called ‘Unravel’ which really brought the message to life. We had lots of fun making our own Shamrocks. It was a great afternoon!
This morning the sun shone for the Nursery's Sponsored Cycle where all the Nursery children cycled their bicycles or scooters around the MUGA pitch for twenty minutes. The children enjoyed themselves and their sponsorship money will go towards purchasing gardening equipment and a new outdoor shed for the Nursery. Many thanks to all the family members and friends who came to support us and who gave sponsorship money.
Primary 7 had a great time visiting the Titanic centre in Belfast to conclude their Literacy Topic on the Titanic.
Titanic Belfast extends over nine interactive galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition, drawing together special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive features. The children were able to explore the shipyard, travel to the depths of the ocean and uncover the true legend of Titanic, in the city where it all began.
Last Friday Primary 7 were privileged to welcome Mr Angus Waddington (parent) into school before they visited the Titanic Centre in Belfast. Mr Waddington was the lead architect of the Titanic Visitors Centre.
As part of the P7 Literacy topic ‘Titanic,’ Mr Waddington guided the children through the whole design process of the building and its links with Harland & Wolff. He spoke about the design of the Queen’s Island site and the development of the building from its inception to completion.
Facts and figures were discussed along with a few inside secrets related to the Titanic building. Several modern day myths were revealed too which follows through on the many myths already associated with the ill-fated ship.
Perhaps after this very informative talk we may be looking at some of the next generation of architects!
Many thanks to Mr Waddington for a most informative visit to P7.
The Nursery children recently enjoyed using their Fire Pit for the first time! It was a lovely Spring day and they all learnt how to keep safe around the fire and then toasted some marshmallows! The children enjoyed eating their treats. The helpers took some over to the office for Mr McCambley and Mrs Fitzpatrick to try!
P2 went on a ‘Spring Walk’ around the school grounds today. We were looking out for signs of Spring. We saw snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils, green shoots and buds on trees!
