Shared Education


On our final session at Tullygally we looked at Japanese homes, schools and food.  We even had the chance to taste some Japanese food! 

Daruma Dolls


We made Daruma dolls out of clay and painted them. They are said to be a Buddha God who lost the use of his legs because he sat and meditated for nine years!!!! It is a doll to make a wish on. Only the eye is initially painted black and when your wish comes true you paint in the other eye.



The YMCA are in our class each Monday. We are looking at the issues of self-esteem, confidence, and bullying. We were reminded that bullying is wrong and can have a long term effect on us.

Bird Feeders

We made bird feeders out of scrap materials and hung them up on trees in the school grounds.

Using Style

We are using Style to help with our phonic work.

Shared Education


We are at Shared Education with Tullygally. Yesterday we met with their Primary 7 class. We are looking at diversity through the theme of similarities and differences.

Easons Visit

On Monday 6th November we went to Easons to meet the author and illustrator Alan Nolan.  

Sentinus Technology Day in Brownlow College



We had a brilliant time building our Titanic ships. They are now on display in the school.



Making Our Own Titanic Ships

We brought in lots of boxes and card to build our own Titanic ships. Some of us worked on our own and some of us chose to work with a partner. We had to plan how we were going to build the ship and how we would join it together. We used lots and lots of sellotape and masking tape. We have now constructed the ships and we will soon be painting them and adding on funnels, windows and life boats. So far they look brilliant!   












Almost finished!!


















Paired Reading


Every Friday afternoon we go down to the Primary 1 class of Mrs Hughes for Paired Reading. We buddy up with the pupils and read to them. It is really good fun. They listen well and we get a chance to practice being a teacher! A library book is chosen and we read through it discussing with the pupils the story, the words and the pictures.











In Literacy we have been studying genre. We worked in pairs to write a fairy tale. We had to include all the elements that are in a fairy tale. It was great fun and our stories are fabulous. We dipped them in coffee to make them look really old.









During a P.D.M.U lesson we worked in pairs trying to work out the best way to sort out different situations that we may find ourselves in. e.g. one situation was "Your best friend cannot come round to play," another was "You are new to school and don't know anybody."









Our Assembly


We had our Assembly on Friday 29th September. We talked about working hard this year and always trying our best.







Healthy Kidz


We have Healthy Kidz on a Thursday afternoon. It is super fun as we get to play lots of games that help to improve our balance, stamina, speed and strength.
