In P6 we have begun studying the Vikings and we went on a trip to North Down Museum in Bangor to learn more about them. We got to make some Viking jewellry and we met a real-life Viking who showed us round his long-house. We got to experience wearing Viking clothes and holding Viking weapons. We finished off the day by playing outside in Castle Park.
We had a super time - thanks to Mrs McNeilly and Mrs Ritchie for coming with us!
Our Viking Photo Stories
P6 Rainforest Expedition Investigation Work
In our first half-term our P6 students created some fantastic biographies on their heroes!
P6 had a wonderful time in Ganaway Outdoor Centre in October. We spent the two days doing a variety of exciting and fun activities, including; caving, climbing, archery, kayaking, zip lining and rope walking! Teachers also had to take part!!
Boys and girls from Primary 6 have been enjoying learning the basic skills from a variety of sports under the expert coaching of Karen McVeigh. She is a superb netball player herself and is an excellent coach, inspiring the children to 'aim high'!!
Thank you Karen!!
Well, we did have our visit to Exploris yesterday - 23rd September - and everyone had a great time. We had fun searching for marine life on the shores of Strangford Lough and then, after lunch, had a tour of the Centre and specially loved seeing the seal hospital and sanctuary. Andy and Alistair were our guides and any questions we asked...they had the answer. We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures!!!
It is sad that Exploris may be closing. We signed a petition today because we feel very strongly that many will lose out on a unique experience if the Centre is closed. We want next year's Primary 6 to be able to go on the trip next year!!
Welcome to our P6 page!
On Monday 23rd September we are going to 'Exploris' in Portaferry. Come back soon and check out our photos.
A big thanks to all the parents who attended our information evenings. We hope you found them helpful and enjoyable.
