Class 6

Class 6 Update - October 2018

In Class 6, we are really enjoying our ‘Fairytale’ topic. We looked at our favourite fairy tales and then explored ‘Goldilocks and the 3 Bears’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.

Our fairy tale castle for our role play area is still under construction...watch this space!

In cookery, we made pizzas, porridge for the 3 bears and a jam and cream sponge cake...which we enjoyed at an impromptu afternoon tea party during ‘Golden Time’.

In art, we have made some lovely squirrel and hedgehog pictures as well as some spooky pumpkins.

I am amazed at everyone’s progress in swimming and how many pupils in Class 6 can swim without armbands – A big well done!

We also enjoyed a lovely visit to the Donard Diner earlier this month, all of the pupils really enjoyed their delicious break and we were really impressed by the super hospitality of the senior pupils.

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!

Class 6 Update - April 2018

This month we have finished off our topic of healthy eating.

We had lots of fun being detectives and searching around the school as the Evil Pea escaped from prison and hid around the school. Everyone found all 10 hidden peas!

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’. As a reward we went out to the café and the park with Class 5.
