The Primary Seven Gardening Club have started off the school year with a great team of members who have already planted tubs and flower beds in the school grounds.
This week for Christmas they have planted and designed Christmas pots to give as presents or to keep themselves.
The Art session yesterday was busy but good fun was had by all!
This club is open to anyone in Primary Seven and meets usually on a Thursday between 3.00 and 4.00pm.
This week in P6 Mr Brown and Mr Mitchell challenged their classes to see if they could learn ALL the Prime Numbers from 0-100. The classes were challenged, not only to learn them but to see who could recite them in the quickest time. The quickest time in each class were filmed and you can see the results below. Mr Brown and Mr Mitchell were very proud of all the children who had a go at this very tough voluntary challenge. Well done to the winners. Both the winners completed the challenge in under 12 seconds!
Recently Primary 4 have been learning about 3D Shape. Using the iPads, they selected the 3D Shape App to gather information on cubes, cuboids and various other 3D Shapes. They also used the Apple TV to show how their group was using the app.
We decided to take a different approach to Anti-Bullying Week this year and instead called it 'Pro-friendship Week' looking at all the qualities that make good friends. Every class from P2 - P7 took part in a poster design competition. The task was to create a 'Pro - friendship' Poster which can be displayed around the school.
There were some fantastic entries. The winners from each class won a prize which they received in assembly.
Primary 5 hosted a full school assembly this morning on the theme of 'Heroes'. Primary 5 displayed a lineout of superheroes and explained that we do not always have to think of a Hero as a 'Superhero'. Their second lineout was of heroes in our daily lives that help us in many different ways such as a Paramedic, Teacher, PSNI Officer, Patrol Man, Firefighter and Doctor to name a few! The children also watched a short video clip on Daniel in the Lions Den which displayed Daniel as a Biblical Hero for standing up for God. The message given to the assembly was that we do not need to wear a cape or a uniform to be God's HERO ... we only need to LOVE God and LOVE others. Primary 5 concluded their assembly with a performance of 'Everything I Am'. Many of the children sang a solo and/or a duet. Everyone performed superbly and were given a Friday off their Class Test! What a treat!! The powerpoint used for this assembly is attached to this article also.

Primary 5 pupils completed their Half Marathon of 13.1 miles this afternoon on what was a very inclement day! In true Half Marathon Club style for our Primary 5 runners this term ... it rained on race day! However the rain certainly did not hold the intrepid runners back! Today saw 40 Primary 5 children crossing the finishing line to achieve their Half Marathon Medal. All other Primary 5 children supported their peers by marshalling the route and encouraging the runners on their way round. Well done to all!
The celebration mile allowed parents, grandparents and other spectators to join in and support the runners. Mrs Wan, one of our Board of Governors (and parent) presented each runner with a medal and certificate. Each child also received a pack kindly sponsored by Mr Mark Gordon (Parent & Governor) and the House of Sport, Rushmere Shopping Centre. Mrs Williamson and Mrs Carville enjoyed leading the Half Marathon Club this term and were also assisted by Mrs Graham whom has been of great help to the HM Club. They are all delighted with the children's enthusiasm throughout the 7 week programme and would like to congratulate each child on their Half Marathon achievement. Take a look through the gallery below, thank you to Mrs Carville for being our photographer:
