Thursday, 11th April. Our last Shared Ed lesson with Tullygally. We have really enjoyed getting to know Miss Johnston's P6 class and hopefully have made some new friends. Our last session was Tae Kwon-Do. It was so interesting to learn the skills and about the origins of the sport.

Heather, from Mental Health Awareness came to our class this morning. We talked about how important our physical and mental health was and about how we can look after ourselves.

Thursday, 4th April. Cathy came in from ABC and gave us a session of 'Chi Me'. We found it very relaxing and something that we will practise again, especially if stressed.

28/03/19 Today was our rugby training as part of our Shared Ed Programme with Tullygally. A huge thank you to all the coaches! We all really enjoyed learning new skills.

Hope all the mums and carers have a great day on Sunday. The children have enjoyed making their cards.

January 2019. Problem Solving in Numeracy. Getting ourselves in to height order so we can work out the Mean, Median and Range.

Healthy Kidz has started again. Can you please make sure that all children have their correct PE uniform on Thursdays.

Happy 2019 to everyone! We are looking forward to our new term. Our topic this term is 'Space' and we are excited to explore this together.

 

Our PE day is Thursday and can I remind all children to bring in full PE kit.

 

Also a reminder to all parents to please give children correct dinner money on Monday as this really helps us start our day earlier.

 

I hope that this term is very happy and successful for all.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Mrs Thornton and myself are really excited about working with P6/7 McC. The class have been beautifully turned out in their new school uniform. They are all keen to start their work and we are looking forward to progressing together.

We are now in to our second week working with Megan from the YMCA. Last week we played 'People Bingo' and we ended up finding out so much new information about each other.

 

This week we had to instruct our partner on how to draw different pictures. It was difficult but great fun.
