Abercorn Primary School

Learning and Working Together “The quality of education provided by this school is outstanding” January 2014 ETI


Shared Education

This year Primary 3, Primary 4 and Primary 5 will be participating in the Shared Education project with St Mary's Primary School. By working in partnership with schools of a different type to ours, children will have the chance to meet and learn with young people from a wide range of different backgrounds. Our teachers also have this opportunity and through the partnership get to promote good relations and work together to improve educational outcomes.



Primary three will be focusing on STEAM and the topic 'The Seaside'. They will enjoy a visit from Scientific Sue who will lead a workshop on electricity. They will then use these skills to make a lighthouse with a working circuit. Primary three will get the opportunity to explore and use iPads, Photospeak and Sphero (a programmable device) .

Primary Four will be focusing on the areas of Music, Art and  P.E with their activities. They have already enjoyed an Ice-breaker day during which they played games to get to know each other.

Primary Five will be focusing on STEAM  and the topic 'Egyptians' during their activities. They will enjoy a visit from a team at W5 who will present a number of experiments. Pupils will then have the opportunity to take part in a workshop. Primary Five will be building pyramids, making Egyptian masks and then enjoy a visit to the Ulster Museum to see Takabuti.
