Class 10

Class 10 June 2016 Update

What a fab month we have had in Class 10. I hope that you are as proud of your children as I am, and enjoyed reading their successes in their end of year reports. They are all superstars!!!

We all had an amazing trip to White Park Bay. The behaviour and manners of all the children were exceptional; you really can take them anywhere and they always represent the school well.

With trips to the cinema, Visit from the ice cream van, Friar Tucks and Solitude Park we have been kept busy.

I have had a great Term 3 in Class 10, the children are amazing and are a credit to their parents. I am going to miss the pupils who are moving on to Class 11 but look forward to working with the new boys coming from Class 9.

Class 10 April 2016 Update

It is lovely to be back in class 10. All of the children and staff have made me feel very welcome.

The big news in class 10 this month is that we have a new pupil called Richard, he has settled well into Donard School life and is enjoying meeting new friends.

We have been studying the topic ‘Volcanoes’ this month. Class 10 enjoyed researching facts about volcanoes and had great fun completing messy experiments.

We have some great events arranged, bowling at Sheepbridge to celebrate completing ‘The Big Work Challenge’, a hip hop dance-a-thon to raise funds for Paula McCann going to work in a special needs school in Uganda and then fishing with Miss Campbell. We also celebrate Jenny’s birthday.

We went on a road safety walk around town and identified different road signage and what they mean.

Class 10 May 2016 Update

What a busy month!!! Class 10 had many successes at the inter-schools swimming gala, all being placed 1st- 4th in their races. Well done to all involved!!!!

Our highlight of the month was our trip to the Ulster Museum to see the Egyptian exhibition. Class 10 were able to relate what they had learnt previously to the information given during this visit. We loved seeing Takabuti the Egyptian mummy.

We also enjoyed our morning of culture watching the Ulster Orchestra in concert. Some of Class 10 are conductors in the making!!!!

Class 10 have had a busy October

Class 10 have had a busy October. The pupils have continued the topic ‘My Body’ and enjoyed Autumn art & crafts.

We have carried out lots of experiments linked to the body. Our favourite experiment was on the Digestive System.

The pupils enjoyed making many tasty treats during Home Economics this month. The favourites included apple crumble, sweet kebabs, top hats and a jelly brain.

The pupils are looking forward to The Speech and Drama Festival and are rehearsing their poems every day in class.
