What an amazing VE Day Tea Party!
Thank you to all who came on Friday. It was a super afternoon where the P4 children showcased just how much they have enjoyed our World War 2 topic this term. Through drama, art, craft, music and dance, the children brought to life some of the issues which were part of life for children during World War 2- including a guest performance by Dame Vera Lynn.
Here are a few photos for you to enjoy. Also, check out the local papers for more coverage of the tea party.
Oh no! The war has started and we have to be evacuated!
Good news! The war is over!
...and what about a dab?
What a way to end our WW2 topic!
On Friday 2nd June, the P4 children were literally Up, Up and Away!
Thanks to The Ulster Aviation Society, we were able to see a Spitfireand even sit in the pilot's seat.
Have a look at the photos below and you will recognise some amazing pilots!
The P4 teachers are amazed and delighted to have so many wonderful Anderson Shelter models brought into school by the P4 children.
Well done to everyone (and especially the Mums and Dads!)
Everyone has now settled in well to Year 4.
Our first topic was Autumn.
We learned all about what happens during this season of the year. We have done lots of lovely autumn art work. We learned all about the different types of trees and their leaves and fruit. We went for an autumn walk and looked for signs of autumn - you can see some of our photographs below.
Our next topic was School in the Past. We were learning all about what school was like when our grandparents were young. We had a special visitor in school to talk to us about what it was like at Abercorn Primary School when he was a boy. We asked lots of questions to find out information and made projects to present to the class. We enjoyed celebrating a very special time of the year!
Our next topic was Chinese New Year. We were learning all about the country of China and how the Chinese people celebrate at this time of the year. We even dressed up and tried eating some Chinese food. We were reading traditional Chinese stories and making some lovely Chinese dragons.
Our last topic was Weather. We were learning all about weather maps, symbols and instruments. We even had a go at pretending to be weather forecasters.
Our new topic will be World War Two. We will be learning about what happened in Northern Ireland during the blitz. We will also be finding out about what happened to the boys and girls when they were evacuated. We hope to have a trip out of school to visit a war museum in Ballyclare. We will also be creating some lovely war art work.
