Primary 6 Visit 'The National Stadium'

On Friday 20th April both Primary 6 classes enjoyed a tour of our National Stadium in Belfast. The children were introduced to the 'greats' in our past history. They then got a tour of the stadium, including the changing rooms. To end with we all enjoyed an IFA run workshop. The whole day proved a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience.

Primary 6 Sainsbury's Winners

Recently, both Primary 6 classes entered a Sainsbury's competition to design a Fairtrade Poster. Both classes produced some fantastic designs. Mandy and Dave from Sainsbury's Craigavon had the difficult task of choosing a winner from each class. The winners are pictured in the link below with their prizes, which were kindly donated by Mandy and Dave. Thank you!

P6M Fair Trade Assembly

WOW! What an Assembly treat we had today from P6M. The children's theme of Fair trade was taken to a new level with drama, music, YouTube clips and much more. The whole school from Nursery right up to P7 enjoyed learning about this P6 topic. Next time you buy always look out for the fair trade mark.

Primary 6 - Pocket Money Investigation

Are you giving your children enough pocket money? :)

Today in Primary 6 we conducted an investigation into pocket money. This focused on the pupils parents changing their pocket money for 12 weeks. They could choose between two options: 

Option 1 - You get 1p for the first week, but each following week the amount will double. E.g 1p this week, 2p next week, 4p the week after.

Option 2 - Take 50p the first week and add 50p each week so this week you will get 5op, next week 100p, the week after 150p etc.

Working in groups, the children had to make out a spreadsheet to see which option was best for them. We had great fun with this investigation and look forward to the next one.

Primary 6 - Prime Number Challenge

This week in P6 Mr Brown and Mr Mitchell challenged their classes to see if they could learn ALL the Prime Numbers from 0-100. The classes were challenged, not only to learn them but to see who could recite them in the quickest time. The quickest time in each class were filmed and you can see the results below. Mr Brown and Mr Mitchell were very proud of all the children who had a go at this very tough voluntary challenge. Well done to the winners. Both the winners completed the challenge in under 12 seconds!


Primary 6 Viking Boat Hull Investigation

In P6, we have been learning all about how the Vikings explored far from Scandinavia and that they raided, traded and settled in far off lands like Britain.

One of the main reasons they were such good explorers was because they were excellent boat builders. They were able to travel great distances and carry large amounts of people due to this incredible skill.

The P6 pupils were set the challenge of designing a boat hull which could carry the most weight. So today in class they designed and built their hulls using tinfoil.
