The children have made a great start to the year and have all settled well into life in P7.They were so excited, in the first week of term, to be paired up with their P1 buddies. The P7 children are taking their roles very seriously and have already done a great job of looking out for their buddies in the playground during morning play and at break time. They really look forward to a Tuesday and Friday when they get to spend more time with their buddies. It has been lovely to hear great reports from the P1 parents about how the buddy system has helped their children settle into school.

P7 have been working extremely hard already this term with a large focus being on problem solving. We have been looking at various ways to solve problems throughout the different areas of the Numeracy curriculum. We are learning about coding in ICT and have enjoyed using QR codes to link this to our Numeracy.

Our World Around Us topic this term is ‘We are at War’. Through this we are learning all about World War Two focusing particularly on The Blitz and researching what life was like as an evacuee. We are looking forward to linking art projects to our topic and in particular designing and making our own air raid shelters. Our novel is also linked to our topic work. We are really enjoying reading Friend of Foe by Michael Morpurgo and through this we are learning about what life was like for children during WW2.Our STEM topic is electricity where we will be learning about how electricity is made and experimenting with various circuits.

We are looking forward to a trip to the RADAR centre in Belfast later this term where the children will learn all about fire safety, anti-social behaviour and the consequences of it, personal safety and the NSPCC Pants Rule, drug and alcohol abuse, road safety and e-Safety. All workshops are interactive and an enjoyable day out for all.

Well done P7, you have made a great start to what looks like an exciting year ahead.
