Primary 6 & 7

A big shout out to all my wonderful P6&7s....

Just a wee check in to see how you all are??
I hope you have all made a start on some work in your Home Learning Packs and working well for your parents.
Please remember that as well as school work try and complete some other activities as suggested in your pack.

I miss hearing your stories and having some ‘craic’ as you all would call it.  
keep checking in on our page for more updates!!

To put a smile on all your faces -

Below are some pictures on our last day before school had to close.

Primary 7
‘You are the Best’

End of Day Treat for the P7s.

A big shout out to our parents who own Vic & Hil who very kindly gave all the Primary 7 children free hot chocolate with marshmallows.  They had also contacted Donnellys who very generously donated some cream eggs and sweets for the children as it may have been their last day at primary school.

 I think it just made their day extra special!!

Not forgetting my brilliant P6s.

Pancake Day Fun

Instructional Writing

Our focus over the last few weeks in writing was learning all about instructional writing.  Before Pancake Tuesday the children brought in different sets of instructions and we investigated why we need instructions and looked at different layouts. We then became ‘instructional detectives’ and made a checklist of what needs to be included in a set of instructions.  This checklist was going to be used when it came to writing our own instructions on how to make pancakes.

Robotics Afternoon at Dunclug College


Feel Good Friday!!

  Investigating Venn Diagrams

 P6 & 7 created a venn diagram using 3 circles and sorted the numbers 1-50 using their own criteria.  Some groups sorted for prime numbers, odd numbers, even numbers, square numbers to name a few.

They were then set a challenge to create a Venn Diagram using various statements.

Each group had to think what the title for each section was going to be and sort the statements accordingly.

Art & Design

In P6&7 we have many talented artists.   You can clearly see this in the beginning stages our wonderful watercolour landscapes inspired by the talented artist Jen Aranyi.

Part 1 - covered sketching out the landscape and using watercolours to paint the sky.

Part 2 - covered drawing the trees and mountains with pen.

Santa stops in Clough!!

Christmas Prop Fun

Transfer Club Party

What a way to finish our last day of Transfer Club!!

Everyone earned this treat after all the hard work they have put in over the past number of months.

I think the smiles say it all!!

Best of Luck for the final test on Saturday.

’Bucket Filling’

 We have recently introduced the concept of ‘bucket filling’ in our class as we endeavour to make our school and classroom a happy place to be.  We fill buckets everyday by doing kind deeds and using kind words.  Even Mrs Overend is joining in too!!

World Around Us

Our first World Around Us topic is the ‘Rugby World Cup with it being a current world wide topic throughout September and October. The children were given the opportunity to explore the history of the World Cup with all the related facts and figures as well as finding out about the country of Japan and the changes it made in preparation for the World Cup.  We even managed to find out all about Typhoon Hagabis! 

The class took part in a ‘country sweepstake’ were each child picked out one country from the twenty participating countries and this was the team they followed throughout the tournament.  (Well Done to Joel on picking out the winning team, South Africa!!)

The children are now in the process of producing a project on their allocated country and are incorporating ICT skills and many other skills to produce their final product.  

There are some very interesting facts being found out and I cannot wait to see the completed projects!!

Learning how to draw ‘Koi’ fish and using watery paint and salt for our finished design.
