Welcome to P6!
Our Topic this Term is: The Iron Man/Materials
We will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and linking this to our science focus of materials this term. We we will beginning to understand the sources of different materials and carrying out experiments to learn more about their properties.
Everybody is somebody...
...and we fit right together.
St Clare's Primary School, Manorhamilton Visit
This week, we were visited by our new friends from Manorhamilton. We spent the day getting to know each other, building Lego robots, learning how to play chess and building bridges. The children really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to their next meeting.
P6 enjoyed programming Lego robots to achieve a specific challenge today!
As part of Anti-Bullying Week, we watched an animated video called 'Wings', which showed the story of a small bird, which was being bullied by crows. The children were tasked with the challenge of creating their own mini role-play of how they would support the bird as if they were themselves. The children created great positive messages!
Have a look at us at the Halloween Disco!
P6 had a great at the Gaelic Blitz on Wednesday. They enjoyed all of the activities and were brilliant ambassadors for our school.

P6 had the exciting opportunity to see the Ulster Orchestra live in the Forum. Watch below to see them in action...
Today the class were continuing their materials topic by testing the elasticity of different types of objects. We tested a cricket ball, tennis ball, bouncy ball, marble and ping pong ball to see which one had the most elasticity. Next, we are going to decide why they may have bounced at different heights.
Applying Maths Skills
The class have been applying their four operation skills in a challenging game context to try and score the most points as possible. They all enjoyed trying to find the best way to score their points.
E-Safety - Messaging Safely
This week in our ICT lesson we have been learning about how to send messages safely and positively over the internet. We created our own fold out mobile phones and created several rules for messaging safely.
Have a look at some of the work we have been getting up to so far this term. We have created amazing Iron Man rubbing prints with Ms Cox. We have also carried out some survey work and created bar graphs to show our healthy snack choices.
Today the class were finding different adjectives to describe the Iron Man. First we used the book to find examples the author has used and then we developed our thesaurus skills by finding synonyms. Watch this space to see our finished work.
