Primary 5 from both classes have recently been visiting Primary 1 to experience being Reading Buddies. The Primary 5 children enjoyed taking on this responsible role while the Primary 1 children enjoyed this lovely experience of the older children reading to them. This scheme continues to develop as we approach the end of Term 2.
Primary 5 worked in groups to create an argument on the "Advantages" and 'Disadvantages" of watching Television. Some very interesting points were raised! The children enjoyed researching the issues around this subject. Well done to the groups who presented their arguments very well.
Recently pupils from Primary 5 enjoyed a visit from Habitat for Humanity NI. They experienced the Our Waste Our World Programme. The pupils enjoyed the creative and interactive workshop and are much more aware of the impact that waste in NI has on families living in poverty and in the developing world.
A message we continue to instil in our children is Internet Safety when using technology at home and at school. The pupils from Primary 1 to Primary 7 recently designed their own Internet Safety message on the template of an iPad ... take a look through our gallery to view these messages:
Primary 5 recently enjoyed their series of French lessons taught by Madame Cassells. They enjoyed learning many French phrases and have gained a good knowledge of the country of France and its culture. The children even managed to experience some French cuisine!! A huge thank you to Madame Cassells for teaching the children. Take a look through our gallery to see how we got on:
Primary 5 had great fun completing an investigation on their topic of Penguins. The investigation was to find out if a Penguin needs Blubber to survive in Antarctica temperatures.
Together they carried out an investigation to identify whether Penguin Blubber actually insulates a Penguin in cold climates. Each child got to place their hand into an ice cold bowl of water and then again into a glove insulated with Blubber (lard). The children compared the results of each and concluded that the Penguin's Blubber is definitely a much needed insulation in the cold climate of the Antarctica! Take a look through our photo gallery to see how we got on:
Primary 6/7 football continues at pace every Tuesday from 3-4. Most weeks there are over 40 boys who attend for enjoyment, fitness and a chance to excel at the beautiful game. With only one week to go before the Easter break we took a few snapshots of the boys playing small sided games on our own MUGA pitch.
Both Primary 6 classes enjoyed a visit from a Translink representative to talk about travelling to and from school using their services and travelling in a healthy manner. The children were allowed to ask questions regarding the services on offer and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
On Friday 29th March Primary 7 spent a very interesting day visiting the Titanic exhibition and SS Nomadic in conclusion to their WAU topic on the Titanic.
We had the pleasure of being taken through the Titanic experience by two excellent tour guides who provided the children with many fascinating facts.
The tour took us through nine galleries, telling the story of RMS Titanic, from her design in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her famous maiden voyage and tragic end. The galleries are innovative and interactive with many features including diving to the depth of the ocean to explore where RMS Titanic now rests. The Titanic story is told at Titanic Belfast in a fresh and insightful way.
We were able to visit three new galleries which capture the excitement of launch day, as well as The Maiden Voyage gallery, which transports visitors from four embarkation ports, Belfast, Southampton, Cherbourg and Queenstown (now known as Cobh) to Titanic’s deck promenade. The children were not only able to see and hear the ocean and feel the ships engines rumbling on board at the Palm Court Café but could also meet Fredrick Dent Ray, a dining room steward and survivor. The Maiden Voyage gallery also includes an original first class luncheon menu dated April 14, 1912, as well as the last letter ever to be written on board the Titanic.
The visit concluded with a chance to board and see round the SS Nomadic. This was the tender that used to transfer passengers to and from the Titanic. It is the only White Star Line vessel in existence today.
Earlier in the week we were very fortunate to have Frances Waddington’s father in to talk to both classes about the construction of the magnificent visitors centre. Mr Waddington had been one of the architects who worked on the design. He shared many interesting facts, myths and secrets about the building!!
