We have lots of things to look forward to and we'll be learning lots of new skills. Keep an eye on our class page to see all the exciting things we get up to this year!

Welcome to Primary 6 2019 - 2020

World Book Day!!

For World Book Day the children created their own characters. They then created a comic strip using their characters before animating their comics on the Ipad.

Pancake Tuesday!! Yummy!

On Tuesday 17th December our pupils enjoyed their first Shared Education lesson. They worked with pupils from St Joseph's, Crumlin Integrated College and Gaelscoil Ghleann Darach. The morning involved a Christmas quiz and an art and craft task.

Primary 6 and 7 today had their first session in learning to code using Microbit. This programme is being delivered by the University of Ulster. We are one of only a few schools that have been selected and the first school to work with Microbit.

Over a number of lessons we will learn how to create messages, images and possibly games using Microbit. The children may even get a visit to the University later in the year.

As part of Anti-Bullying week, Primary 6 have been looking at what you can do to help stop bullying. They made videos showing bullying and what people can do to help beat the bullies and 'Show Kindness'. Well done to all of them!!!

The children from Primary 6 enjoyed a fun session with Alex from the Burns Skills School today. They learned about listening skills and sportsmanship.

On Thursday 17th October we had  a visit from the Water Bus. We learned about the importance of conserving water and how look after our water.

We are exploring Viking worlds using Minecraft. Over the coming weeks we will build our own Viking world in Minecraft. Lots of excitement!!

Welcome to Primary 6 2018 - 2019

 This is a taste of all the things we have been up to in the last few weeks.  We enjoyed working out the area of a compound shape on the floor.  Mr Fisher was very understanding. We kept ourselves busy in the P.E. hall with lots of new taster sports. We even found time to build a snowman one lunchtime. text...

Primary 6 got to meet the Deputy Mayor of Antrim at Mossley Mill this week. He was delighted to pose for a picture with the children. They were taking part in a Young Enterprise Masterclass. They had to design their own orange juice carton for marketing purposes.

At the end of our topic we made some Viking boats, Mrs Woodin would like to thank all the children and their parents for making such fabulous boats.

The children voted for their own class winner. They really understand how hard it is to choose a winner.

Primary 6 have had great fun finding out about parallel and perpendicular lines .

This term we have been building 3d shapes and finding out about the Vikings.  We made a human timeline with all our information.

 

Last years P6 (2017 - 2018)

 

Working together in a group to solve our numeracy puzzle.  We are focusing on our thinking skills this term.

 

During the summer term we labelled our class library books with accelerated reader stickers. We can now go and choose a book from the class library and read it for pleasure.  We are really enjoying our S.Q.I.R.T time which is shh quiet it is reading time.

 

We are the Harry Potter class and Mrs Youngman designed a special door for our class. Mrs Woodin made a class contract to read the Harry Potter books by the end of the year.

 

Our worry monster has arrived in our class. If we have a worry we place it in his tummy. Each week we discuss how we could help the  person with the worry.  The worry monster lives in the calm zone.

 

The Vikings have landed in our class. We are going to be studying the Vikings over the next six weeks. We are hoping to have a Viking Day at the end of the October.

 

Another busy term two in primary five and six.  We began the term by looking at the rainforest. We researched animals that lived in the rainforest by completing a project. We made some fantastic camouflage pictures.

 

 

In science we investigated how to load the trees onto the boat to go down the river. We observed how the marbles moved around in the contained. We concluded that the logs needed to be packed in tightly in order to stop the boat from tipping over.

 

It was World Book Day in March, we had a book swap as part of our celebrations. We got the chance to go back into class to read our new books.
