Welcome to Year 6M
Our first topic in Year 6 is Amazing Africa. We have been learning all about the continent of Africa.
Lana brought in a beautiful cloth from Tanzania. It helped to inspire our artwork.
Mrs Barr from Charlene’s Project visited our harvest celebration and told us about life in Uganda.
We had an African afternoon in our classroom. We looked at maps and talked about the flight paths from Belfast and Dublin to different African countries. We then took a virtual flight to Africa, and when we ‘landed’ there we got to experience authentic African clothes, jewellery, money, crafts and musical instruments. Some children achieved full marks in their Progress Test and as a special treat they received a handmade African bookmark! Browse our photos to see what a fantastic afternoon we had.
Some of our class went on a 3 day residential to Ganaway. We had so much fun! Have a look at the photos to see the activities which we got to take part in.
We had a fun day before half term when we were allowed to wear fancy dress to school! We also enjoyed a disco arranged for us by the PTA.
We carved pumpkins and helped to raise money for Charlene’s Project. Daniel carved the winning pumpkin in P6M. Well done Daniel!
Zara, Chloe and Irene represented our class at our Whole School Harvest Celebration. Well done girls!
Our new topic is Space. We visited the Planetarium in Armagh. We got to watch a presentation in the theatre, see a real meteorite, make and launch rockets, dress as astronauts, and investigate the Astro park. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day out.
We completed some space art work - we think that our displays look out of this world!
We had the opportunity to take part in a bike skills session with Dave from Sustrans. Hopefully it will help us all to stay safe while out and about on our bicycles.
We have had lots of fun preparing for Christmas in Year 6M. Have a look at our photos.
On Pancake Tuesday we made pancakes in class. They were delicious! We followed our practical activities with some writing. We used what we had learnt to help us to write instructions for making perfect pancakes.
We celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as characters from our favourite Roald Dahl books. We investigated Dahl’s life and wrote Fact files about the author. We also designed our own characters from Oompaland. We had chocolate treats at break time, and we even got to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a special treat for winning the Year 6 spelling competition this term.
