STEM cosy winter homes activity. Children worked in groups to build a warm den for animals to hibernate. They had to use natural materials, ensure the den will last all winter and be warm enough for the animals.

We study some fantastic World Around Us topics that are used to inspire our learning in different curriculum areas; these include Houses and Homes, Celebrations, Water, Pirates, Robots and Space.
We learn about our school values and celebrate a different value each month. This can be through RE, PDMU, The Arts, UICT, PE and Literacy and Numeracy.
We also learn how to work with others and are learning to become confident, independent and responsible citizens, making informed and responsible choices.
Primary 4 and 5 is an action packed classroom!
There was great excitement when P4/5 children received replies from the residents at St James' Lodge. The children loved reading these.
P4 and P5 were bursting with excitement as they wrote letters to the residents of St. James' Lodge. They asked them questions about life when they were at school and told them some information about themselves and our school. The children even gave them some Brain Riddles to think about! The residents were delighted to receive our letters and some are even replying!
Children took part in the Mathletics November Numeracy challenge and loved to count how many Gold bars they achieved.
During Friendship week P4 and P5 created posters, made a list of things to do if you are being bullied and completed a Kindness activity. They all had to write a compliment about each person in their class. Everyone loved reading these kind comments.
Primary 5 children were busy working together weighing items and reading scales.
