P5 – P7

P5, P6 and P7

P5,6 & 7 have been learning about angles. We have been measuring angles in our surroundings and calculating missing angles in various types of triangles. We have also been working on division of decimals.

We are really enjoying our new theme ‘Impact’. We have been looking at our impact on the world and discussing how we could reduce our carbon footprint. We had a great time at Shared Education. We took part in a variety of P.E activities, were we developed our skills in team games, fundamental skills and invasion games.

P7 took part in Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s schools’ engagement programme.

P5,6 &7 have started the new year off with some resolutions. The children had some very mature and responsible ideas (some even included keeping their bedroom tidy!) We have been continuing with multiplication and will be focusing on division in the coming weeks. We have set ourselves a target to improve our recall of times table facts, it is important children revise every night. We are looking forward to starting our new theme ‘Eco Warriors’.

P5,6 &7 have been working on instructional writing. We have been focusing on editing and improving our writing.

We are currently editing instructions for making a space rocket. In theme we designed and made a rocket that launches into the sky! We investigated chemical reactions to make this happen. In Mathematics we have been leaning about symmetry and rotational symmetry.

We will be making some symmetrical Christmas decorations.

P5,6 & 7 have had a super-galactic September. We are thoroughly enjoying our Space theme!

So far we have been exploring the planets and the stars. The children were very keen to find out what it would be like to do normal everyday activities in space without gravity. We are beginning to write a report on the planets.

We have taken steps to setting up a garden area, we have planted peas and rocket which we will transfer outside when the garden is ready.

We have been busy with Shared Education. We went to Seaview and took part in ICT activities. We researched an explorer from the Victorian era and an explorer from today. Then we compared and contrasted them and presented this in a PowerPoint presentation to the partner schools.

We attended the production of ‘Grease’ at Dunclug Collage.  We had a lovely morning out and even got some tips for our own upcoming Christmas concert!

Mrs O’Reilly would like to thank all the children and their parents for their kind and generous donations for Children in Need. All the children and staff had great fun while raising money for such a worthy cause.

P5,6 & 7 have had another busy month. We have been working on addition and subtraction up to the millions involving problem solving. We had great fun during maths week investigating measure. We made bar graphs, combined bar graphs and scatter graphs.

We have been continuing our theme ‘Thinking through the Past’. We have looked at Victorian artist William Morris and are in the middle of designing printed cards based on his style. We have finished our diary entries – all children produced a fantastic piece of writing!
