The P6 children have made a fantastic start to the year and have settled well into new routines. We have been learning about Bridges in our World Around us topic and have been investigating how bridges are made as well as locating bridges in our area. We have discovered some super structures and have been learning about design and construction. The children have had fun acting as newspaper reporters who have been reporting from the Foyle Bridge.We have also been developing our ICT skills as we are creating a leaflet about the Peace Bridge, Londonderry using Publisher. We are looking forward to publishing our own brochures in the incoming weeks!

Our shared novel this term is ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes and we have welcomed into our classroom our very own life sized model of the main character which we had fun creating together! Our budding reporters created their own front page newspaper articles to celebrate his arrival in the story. Very impressive writing skills and ICT skills are evident in the children’s work!

Primary Six have also tackled some interesting problem solving activities in Numeracy. They have been investigating number towers to find the combination of numbers which provide the highest and lowest totals. We have also been investigating super structures such as skyscrapers and have been managing information to solve a range of questions.

Our PE sessions have been equally as fun filled.P6 have enjoyed hockey lessons and games. Wehave been visiting Coleraine Leisure Centre and have participated in the swimming programme led by instructor Aaron who is impressed by the progress made already! P6 have had the opportunity to sign as part of a choir or to learn recorder. These lessons have been tuneful and we are well on our way to performing some simple tunes!

It has been a busy September! Well done P6 pupils!
