As part of our Space topic, we had a school outing to the Armagh Planetarium. We watched a space show, where a family of aliens visited each of the planets to choose which one would be best for a holiday. We also assembled a rocket and blasted them off into the sky and looked at the exhibitions on display.
Our first World Around Us topic in P6 is Africa. The children have learnt a greeting in Mandinka which is spoken in West African countries:
”Ab-in-ya-ma” = “Hello, how are you”
”Ab-an-ya-ma” = “I’m doing fine”.
