Reading is our big focus!

P7 are loving our new initiatives for reading this year. We have eleven dedicated librarians who have been doing a fantastic job in the library under the wonderful guidance of Mrs Gibson.

P7 are paired with P5 pupils for our Paired Reading programme. This has been a huge success and a tremendous boost to our Accelerated Reader programme which continues to motivate pupils to read in an enjoyable way.

P7 have constructed a Victorian Manor House

P7 Visit to Castle Ward  

P7 dressed up in their Victorian clothes and enjoyed a wonderful day at Castle Ward. They learned of past Christmas traditions and activities included a visit to some rooms in 'The Big House'; playing Victorian parlour games; writing with dipped pens and ink; a group recitation of a Christmas poem and some Christmas craft making a Christmas decoration. Advent has well and truly begun in P7!

Victorian School Day 1848

With the three Rs, chalk boards, dipped pens and ink wells, a cane, the Dunce's Hat and a strict teacher, P7 discovered that school life was very different in 1848!

High School Ballynahinch

P7 have enjoyed a variety of fantastic lessons at the High School Ballynahinch. They learned new knowledge and skills in Home Economics, Art, Drama, PE, Science and Technology & Design. This has given them a valuable insight into what the Secondary School curriculum holds in store for them. We really appreciate the generosity of the High School for sharing their time and resources with us. This was a super experience for everyone.
