Thank you also for all the awesome country projects, postcards, book reviews, boats etc. that you have been sending through. Please continue to e mail us any work you’ve been doing; this can include photos of anything you’ve been up to, whether school-related or not! We miss you and really enjoy seeing your activities!

Memories of Comber Primary School
Hello P7, we have now entered your final month of being a pupil at CPS. We'd like you think about what your favourite memories of school have been. Here are a few suggestions:
You may be able to think of other ideas too. We'd like you to send us a video of yourself talking about your favourite members of CPS. You don't need to go into too much detail, it can be as long or as short as you wish. You might like to talk over your memories with your folks at home, they might be able to help jog your memory.
If you make a video, please email it to us by Monday 15th June. It would be great to hear from you all :-)
Miss Seaton and Mr Bradley will be thinking about you as you receive your letters telling you what school you will attending next year. We are both very proud of you all and everything that you have achieved, both in P7 and during your time at CPS. Whatever school you are placed in, we know that you will go there with a positive attitude, give 100% at everything that you do and you will be a success there. Take care :-)
We'd also like to give you some advance warning that for your WW2 task next week yo are going to need an egg and a plastic bag. Hopefully you can get yourselves organised over the weekend.
A BIG thank you to anyone who submitted ideas to Uberheroes about the next 4 pages in their new comic. Please see the file below to read a draft version of the ideas they received.
Uberheroes are now asking P7 pupils to submit ideas for the next 4 pages. You can do this by using the link below. Don't forget that Kayran from P7B designed the new Uberheroes superhero - 'Sanso Robodog' and it would be super if our pupils could have an influence on the story.
Uberheroes are also asking P7 pupils to complete a survey about the impact the Corona Virus has had on them. The survey can be found using the file below.
Submitted surveys can be sent to Uberheroes using the email: firstname.lastname@example.org
They can also be sent to your class teacher and we will forward them on.
Uberheroes are also keen to hear from parents of P7 pupils and their thoughts on the Uberheroes programme.
If you'd like to comment, please do so using the email: email@example.com

Hello lovely P7s! We hope you are all keeping well and are still working away at home. Thank you for all the super planes, poems and art that you have sent through this week. we love to see what you are up to, so keep it coming!
Your work over the next couple of weeks is going to be a little bit different. You will have some revision sheets to complete as usual, but also, at this time of year in P7, we traditionally put together a project on a country. You have free choice in the country that you select for your project and full details of what you have to do can be found by clicking on the links below. These links will hopefully also give you some suggestions and inspiration for making your choice.
Make sure you take your time with this project - it should take you two weeks to complete and you need to put a lot of research into it. Think carefully about the country you choose - can it be easily researched? Are there are lot of interesting features for you to write about?
As always, we are here for you; so if you need any help, support or guidance, please just let us know!
Premier League Learning
Check out this website that contains numerous learning materials for key stage two pupils that are linked to the Premier League. It includes both literacy and numeracy resources, as well as other subject areas and will especially appeal to pupils with an interest in football.

Well done Kayran!
Well done to Kayran - his 'Robodog' entry has been selected to be the new Uberheroes' superhero. We are delighted for you Kayran, well done. Thanks to everybody who voted for Kayran - we know lots of you did. Stay tuned to see the how 'Robodog' will look in the new comic.
Uberheroes are seeking the input of P7s about the story of their new comic. The first 4 pages can be seen below. Have a read...then you can decide what happens next by visiting the Uberheroes website:https://uberheroes.co.uk/over-to-you/have-your-say/

P7 Holland Update
Following correspondence with our travel agent, we will soon be able to begin the process of issuing refunds for the P7 Holland trip. Cheques should be posted by Friday 22nd May and should be with you shortly after.
We apologise for the delay in issuing refunds. Due to the corona virus pandemic it has taken us longer than anticipated to be able to do this.
For those of you who have ordered hoodies, they should be with you shortly. Given the current situation, our supplier has had issues sourcing certain sizes and we aim to deliver these to our pupils at the earliest possible date. The hoodies that have been sourced have been printed and can be seen below.

There are two pictures below that will help you out. Your work could be a pencil sketch, you could use colouring pencils/felt tips or you could paint - it's entirely up to you.
Take a photo of your work and email it to us by Sunday evening. We'll then put them up on the website. It was great that so many took part last time - it would be great to have as many pictures as possible.
Kermit on Holiday
You may be glad to know that Kermit (who sometimes goes home with student of the week winners) is surviving lockdown and has been enjoying the sunshine at Katie's house. Alarmingly, he has developed a taste for cheese and onion crisps!!!! I'm sure you'll agree that Katie has been a bad influence on poor Kermit :-)

Hello again P7s,
Just a couple of reminders:

Don't worry if you haven't completed these yet; you can get them finished over Easter; just don't forget to keep in touch and let us see what you are doing!
Here are a couple more challenges of the more artistic variety you can keep yourselves busy with over the next couple of weeks:
2. Draw a portrait (head and shoulders) of someone who was on board the
Titanic. This can be done in pencil, pen, paint or whatever you wish.
Use the guidance below to help you.
3. Take some time out with a bit of mindfulness colouring. See the
document below for some Easter eggs to colour in.
We hope you enjoy these activities. Don't forget to send us a picture of any completed work you'd like us to see. Check back here at the end of the holidays to see what you'll be doing for 'Week 3's Home Learning.'
Wishing you all a HAPPY EASTER!!
Don't overdo it on the eggs!

Titanic Art Challenge
Hello P7 - we thought we would set you a Titanic art challenge. We would like you to draw a picture of Titanic, take a picture of it and send it to us using email. We will then upload them to the website so that we can all admire each other's artwork.
Below are a couple of example tutorials to give you some inspiration.
You have one week to do this - please email your pictures by Monday 6th April. Good luck!!
Well done to the 26 pupils who took part in the Titanic Kahoot - that's over half the year group!! Results are in (we only counted your first attempt) and our top 3 scores were:
Well done ladies!! One thing to remember - Titanic was launched in 1911, but didn't sail until 1912. She was moored in Belfast Lough for nearly a year while she was fitted out.
We will have another Kahoot going live later in the week - keep an eye on the website and your Study Ladder for further updates.
P7 Hoodies have been ordered - many thanks for sending in the money by the correct date. We will be in touch via the website when they are ready with information about how to collect.
We will endeavour to make this as straightforward and as easy as possible for everyone.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

Greetings P7 – we hope you are ready to do some work at home. Use the links below to find out what you should be dong this week.
Keep checking the website for future updates. Don’t forget about Study Ladder either – it will be updated too during the week.
Joe Wicks will be showing PE videos aimed at children on his Youtube channel. These will at 9am Monday – Friday. Check them out!

Twinkl are offering parents free access to their resources for one month due to school closures. This is an excellent resource that we widely use in P7. Go to:
and input the code UKTWINKLHELPS when you register. The parenthub section of the website will be beneficial and using resources in the 7-11 section will get you to learning materials that will be of help.
This Is Just To Say...
P7 have been studying the work of William Carlos Williams. He is famous for writing 'This Is Just To Say' in which he apologies rather insincerely about eating his friend's plums.
We wrote our own poems based on his work and recorded ourselves using green screen. Take a look at our videos below.
P7 had a visit from Clayrazy to celebrate the end of our AQE. We had great fun making our Rudolphs! Thanks to Barbara from from Clayrazy. Enjoy our photos.
P7 went to the Folk Museum to enjoy a Victorian Christmas. The weather was kind to us and we all enjoyed learning about what Christmas was like in the Victorian era.
P7 enjoyed the November sunshine by measuring various places in school using trundle wheels. We had to measure in metres, then convert to centimetres. Once back in class, we then had to use our answers to calculate the area and perimeter.
P7 started their new school year with a trip to Big Bear Wood for a scavenger hunt. We had a great time as you can see from our photos.
Check out our poem/rap that celebrates all of the members of our class. We had great fun writing, rehearsing and performing our work.
P7 have started their rap poetry - check out our performances of 'Let's Write A Rap'. We will shortly be writing our own class rap - be sure to come back soon and check it out!
P7 visited the Folk Museum for our annual Victorian Christmas event. Despite the damp conditions, we had a great day and it was a fun and educational trip. Well done to all P7 pupils who behaved well and thanks to those who dressed up - you all looked the part!
Special thanks to Mrs Kerr and Mrs Davison for volunteering their time and helping us on our trip.
Big Bear Wood
P7 were thrilled when the sun shone in September - off to Big Bear Wood we headed for a scavenger hunt!
Ice Cream Van
The ice cream van recently came to Comber Primary School - P7 (and Mrs Galway!!) were unsurprisingly delighted! Cheers :-)
P7 Rap Performances
In P7 we have been looking at the art of rap poetry. Check out our performances below. Look out for special gust performances from international rap superstars Mrs Galway and Mr Andrews!
P7 attended Bee Safe at the RADAR centre in Belfast. We had a good day out - we learnt a lot about keeping ourselves safe on the roads, in the house and online. Check out some of our photos below.
P7 visited the Folk Museum for a Victorian Christmas. We travelled back in time to discover what life was like in 1899 for upper, middle and lower class families. We also got to design and make our own Christmas-themed crafts.
It was a cold and frosty day, but we had a super time and we were able to apply our knowledge of the Victorians which we have been studying as our WAU topic.
P7 headed to Big Bear Wood and too part in a scavenger hunt. We had to find a variety of different items, including an interesting leaf, something brown, a smile and something AMAZING! We had a lot of fun completing the task and we found lots of different objects.
Our groups had to be a mixture of pupils from both classes - a great way for us to get to know each other.
Welcome to P7!
Both P7 classes joined forces and headed to Big Bear Wood for a scavenger hunt to play some games. We had to try and find as much information as we could about each other. As you can see we had a very enjoyable afternoon.
We hope that all the pupils in P7 have an enjoyable term and make the most of their final year in Comber Primary School.
In class we have been studying angles and have focused our thinking on three figure bearings. We really enjoyed this game - can you rescue the swimmer and avoid the icebergs?
Don't forget to take your bearing from north and to use three figures in your answer!!
P7 visited Big Bear Wood during Waste Week to find out lots of facts about recycling. Clues had been hidden around the forest that helped us to find out lots of statistics about recycling. Did you know that 85% of a car is recycled before it is scrapped? Did you know that our pencil cases are made out of old car tyres? There are just two of the amazing facts that we discovered!
In P7 we have been writing poems from the perspective of passengers and crew who were on board Titanic. Our goal was to include emotion and empathy. We hope you enjoy reading them.
In P7 we have been focusing on maths investigations. Here we are completing a Logic and Reasoning challenge called 'Dahl Delights'. We had to complete a grid using 12 different clue cards and then construct a graph showing the results. We worked in pairs and although we found the investigation challenging, it proved to be good fun too.
In P7 we have been taking part in a variety of maths investigations that have been developing our problem solving skills. They have included work on venn diagrams, symmetry and measures.
