Primary 5 Visit Lough Neagh Discovery Centre

Primary 5 enjoyed a visit to Lough Neagh Discovery Centre at Oxford Island.  Their current topic is Living Things within the World Around Us and they have been busy preparing for this visit.  The children enjoyed the opportunity to walk around the extensive grounds, identifying flowers and minibeasts.  They also got to hunt for minibeasts and go pond dipping.

The children really enjoyed the educational visit and gained much from it. Follow the link to find out more about Lough Neagh Discovery Centre: www.discoverloughneagh.com.  Please click on Read More to view our photographs and enjoy!

Primary 5 Participate In Reading Buddy Scheme

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.
