Class 11 Update - June 2019

Class 11 have enjoyed their last month of term by visiting the Armagh Planetarium. Pupils enjoyed making rockets and shooting them off as well as a lovely space show in the dome. Pupils also participated in the ‘Toilet Twinning’ sponsored walk. It was such a lovely day and thank you for all the sponsor money, we will inform you of the total soon. Big congratulations to all pupils for receiving a certificate during prize-giving and to those pupils who received a special award. It has been an enjoyable year in class 11 and we hope you all have a fun filled summer!

Class 11 Update - May 2019

May was such a busy month for class 11. We enjoyed litter picking for the Eco Clubs and lifted over 5 bags in our bid to ‘Love Here, Love Here’. We also attempted to start a weekly mile where we walked around Solitude Park and used the healthy equipment. Unfortunately, the weather hasn’t been too good for us to do each week! We have been exploring ’Space’ and making lots of art activities and continuing shape in Maths and Literacy.

Class 11 Update - February 2019

Class 11 have been busy learning about different ‘Celebrations’ in topic work. We had the opportunity to learn about Chinese New Year, completing a variety of interactive and written tasks. Our favourite part was tasting some Chinese food! Class 11 have been creating invitations during literacy and we recently posted our invites home to see how long it would take to be delivered. Everyone enjoyed purchasing a stamp to place on the envelope to post home but most importantly everyone had £1 to spend on a treat in store. Class 11 have been investigating imported foods, we also purchased Fairtrade bananas to make banana splits, they went done a treat!

We had a bit of fun and had a competition to see whose vehicle would travel the fastest and furthest. In Art, we have been trying to recreate an autumn scene for display in the senior concourse area. The class particularly enjoyed throwing up the leaves to make their autumn scene.
