March is the month in which we are celebrating Integrated Education. Members of Key Stage 2 have been working together to create a picture of the school by recreating a different section of it. We sketched it and then painted it.
Year 6 did a fantastic job creating model volcanoes as part of their Science Week homework. They also had great fun watching them erupt.
Thank you so much to parents/ carers for all of their support and effort.
Check out this video of some of our wonderful volcanoes.
Mrs Handforth's class enjoyed their session with Cancer Focus NI. We learned about smoking, how to break habits and control our cravings.
The pupils in Mrs Carson's class are just loving having the opportunity to talk about the items they bring to school in the show and tell box. The class wait with great excitement to see and hear about the items in the box. Not only are the pupils growing in confidence speaking in front of their peers, but they are also becoming great listeners!
Have a look at the attachment below to see some pupils who have had the opportunity to show and tell.
Mrs Boreland and Miss Doran's class have been learning about inverse operations and how to use subtraction to check that out addition equations are correct.
Year 2 are having a blast with our topic this term, ‘If you go down to the woods today.’ In Play Based Learning we have been retelling the story of the Gruffalo’s child, measuring our feet and hands in soil using cubes, rhyming words written on sensory balls and drawing our favourite woodland animals on the Interactive White Board. We love play!
Miss Hemphill's class took a walk outside to look for signs of Spring. We found buds, leaves and flowers. We talked about the different colours and sizes. We talked about the importance of allowing the flowers to grow.
Year 2 have really enjoyed their Play-Based Learning this week. They created some lovely artwork, constructed boats to take the Teddy Bears to safety, matched different numbers, ran their own Teddy Bear Shop and made great beds for for Teddies to sleep in. Great work everyone!
Year 2 had a fantastic Numeracy lesson creating function machines. We had to use different 2D shapes to build our robots. After we wrote the input, then we had to work out the correct output on our function machines.
Have a look at our fantastic work.
Eco Day was held on Thursday 16th March 2023, as the highlight of our school,celebrations of Science Week 2023.
Mrs Murphy's Class had a great outdoor learning experience, searching and observing all the "Signs of Spring" as part of their "Spring Scavenger Hunt" in our fabulous natural School Forest during our whole school Eco Day, 2023.
Thank you to everyone in our school for suppprting this whole school Eco - Schools Day in Spring 2023.

During our whole school Eco Day on Thursday 16th March 2023, the pupils in Mrs Murphy's class carried out an invertebrate survey in the school grounds. For this survey a soil pod was dug and then carefully examined in the polytunnel to find out how many invertebrates could be found and identified.
Afterwards, the pupils really enjoyed observing the earthworms under the magnifying glasses and measuring the differences in lengths.
This what's Inder Your Feet survey links in with the rspb Bird Surveys, as part of the food chain and the influences of our Global climate on our local wildlife.
Many thanks to all the teaching, non - teaching staff and pupils, for helping complete this Biodiversity Invertebrate Survey in our school grounds.

This term 7RR's topic is Unsinkable. The children are very proud of their 3D model Titanic ships. Thank you very much parents and carers for all your help in this project.
Last week, we enjoyed British Science Week. As a finale to the fun-packed week we held an ECO Day where classes focused on what they could find beneath their feet.
Here is some of the fun!

On Thursday 16th March we were delighted to have Tia, Zara and Skye perform for us. We thoroughly enjoyed their performance and by the end everyone was on their feet and eager to try a few steps.
Miss Hemphill's class have been doing the story of The Gingerbread Man. We used this as our focus for Play Based Learning. We made 3D cakes from sponges, counted out spoons to follow recipes, made the Gingerbread Man from dough and made cakes in the bakery. We created a sound story using percussion instruments and used our phonic skills to write about the Gingerbread Man. Great work Year One.
As part of the expansion of our topic 'Shine a Light', Year 4 have been exploring sources of light, reflectors and shadows.
With a particularly cloudy and rainy week last week, we used our creative and scientific investigational skills to explore the effects of light shining through translucent and reflective materials. After spinning up a tornado in their sensory bottles, pupils were able to hold them up to the bright windows of our classroom and enjoy the therapeutic effects of watching the light dancing off the glitter and sequins, while the oil and beads caused shadows in between.
Needless to say, the classroom display did not last very long, as pupils were so excited to take their personal design home and share their creation with others.

Mrs Mailey and Mrs Duggan's class went outside on Thursday afternoon to conduct the investigation to find out what is under our feet. Eco committee members had already dug up a sod. We split it into smaller pieces and we worked in groups to sift through it. It was extremely muddy but we enjoyed it. We found out that many bugs live under our feet including beetles, woodlice, slugs, centipedes, millipedes and loads of worms!
On Thursday 16th March, pupils across the school enjoyed a fun assembly celebrating the appreciation of Irish dance across our school in advance of the St. Patrick's Day holiday. There are a wealth of talented pupils who joined and presented their creative expression through Irish dancing.
All attending had an opportunity to learn about dancing the threes and had a chance to try it out for themselves. Our KS2 presenting pupils were happy to show their varied pieces and answer questions from other children.
