We have been incredibly busy in P7 so far. It is hard to believe that we have reached the end of the first term. The P7 children have all worked extremely hard and should be very proud of what they have achieved already this year.

We have really enjoyed out World War Two topic and in particular loved making air raid shelters and investigating electric circuits. Our class novel Friend or Foe is closely linked with our topic and the children showed great enthusiasm and a love for the story. We recently completed interviews with the main character David, where the children showed great understanding of the story by stepping into the shoes of this character. Through this we were working on how to up level our work by answering with more than one sentence and using the technique of ‘show’ rather than ‘tell’.

Our Numeracy work this term has been mainly focused on developing problem solving skills through the transfer of knowledge and understanding in many different topics. We have enjoyed developing our skills through our iZak9 cubes.

In the last few weeks of this term we have enjoyed many trips and days out including a visit to Ballymoney High School to get a feel for what secondary school is like. We loved learning all about World War One at Kildollagh Parish Church’s Centenary Exhibition and really enjoyed a trip to the Grand Opera House to see Jack and the Beanstalk. We have also been working really hard to prepare for our school Carol Service which was a great success.

In the last week of term, we are looking forward to our first Shared Education session with Macosquin and St. Eoghan’s Primary Schools and of course creating lots of art pieces and activities to celebrate the festive season.

Merry Christmas from everyone in P7.
