Armagh Planetarium Visit

P6 had a busy, fun and educational visit to Armagh Planetarium today. They travelled by bus and didn't waste the opportunity to rehearse their songs for the Christmas Musical during the entire journey to Armagh!! 

 

The first experience of the day was the dome, where they learnt more about the Solar System and took a tour around space, looking at galaxies, constellations and each of the planets. The children then designed and made rockets which they launched from the rocket launcher.  Leonardo and Thibault designed the most 'aerodynamic rocket' which was propelled a great distance in the grounds of the Planetarium.

 

Another exciting part of the trip was a visit to the 'Mars Room' where the children had the opportunity to try on Spacesuits and pretend to be an astronaut.

 

After eating lunch they stood inside an astronauts suit and bought some souvenirs from the shop.

 

They are now even more knowledgeable about the Solar System!!!

Armagh Planetarium

P6 are visiting Armagh Planetarium on Thursday 21st November.

 

Cost is £10 and a packed lunch is required. Those in receipt of Free School Meals will receive a packed lunch from the canteen. 

 

Brownlow Library 
Today we completed our three visits to Brownlow Library.  So far we have learnt about fiction and non-fiction books and today we learnt how to use the computers.  We researched several authors and discovered some interesting facts.  Some of us borrowed books to keep up busy and improve our Accelerated Reader scores!!

Class Assembly

 

All parents are welcome to join us on Friday 8th November for our P6 assembly.

Halloween Fun

 

We have enjoyed the last day of this half term by carving pumpkins.  The planning stage was a struggle with so many designs to choose from but each group finalised their plans and produced fantastic carved pumpkins.  Mr Calvert was our judge and decided on our winning team; Jonas, Benas J, Daniel, Filip, and William.

 

Well Done to everyone - enjoy your half term holiday.  We will see you on Monday 4th November when we will be preparing for our class assembly on Friday 8th November.

Data Collection

 

We used our data from counting Smarties to transfer the information into a pictogram.

Golden Time Fun

 

We worked very hard this week to complete numeracy and literacy assessments so Golden Time was very much appreciated. 

Data Collection.

 

We counted the number of smarties in our tubes and separated them into colour groups. We collated the data in a frequency table before we calculated the average and range of the number of smarties across the class groups.
