Class 6 Update - June 2018

Class 6 have been making the most of the glorious sunny weather this month with lots of learning outdoors.

We went on a trip to the Funhouse as our reward for completing the Big Work Challenge and had a ball.

This month we have been learning about life in the past looking at old and new things in our home. We especially loved watching Magic Grandad.

Two of our little butterflies hatched at the beginning of the month and we were so excited to go outside and release them - one took off before we got a chance to take a photo!

We loved making pizzas and milkshakes in cookery (and tasting them!)

The teddy bears picnic was lots of fun and we had a ball at Summer Sensory Sensations.

We have also enjoyed an occasional little visit to the park after our shopping trip to Tesco’s and we are really looking forward to our school trip! Another busy month for Class 6!

We made a big fry for breakfast one morning. We have been busy with rehearsals for festival and we performed in Portadown Festival and Newry Feis. We won a cup at Portadown Festival and we all got certificates and treats at Newry Feis, for our amazing performances of ‘Today is Monday’ and ‘The Animal Boogie’.
