Welcome to P7
Our current topic is The Irish Famine, we have been learning lots of interesting facts and have completed independent research. We are using this information to create presentations on Explain Everything. We are enjoying reading Under The Hawthorn Tree and learning what it was like to be a child during the famine.
P7 have been very fortunate to take part in a 6 week forest school programme at Mount Stewart. We have learnt new skills such as using loppers, whittling wood and making fires. We really enjoy getting to use a range of different tools and having hot drinks by the fire.
Well done to our competition winners, who came 3rd at Ards and North down area Road Safety quiz.
P7 have been having a great time on our first day away! We got up to a lot of team-building games and went to the maze at Castlewellan. Lots of smiles all round and everyone looking forward to another exciting day tomorrow! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s update.
Day 2 with P7! We had a brilliant time kayaking and mountain biking; even the heavy rain couldn’t dampen the spirits today! Dinner was followed by a movie and some hot chocolate to warm us up again. Everyone is excited for more fun tomorrow!
A very busy day on day 3 with archery, assault courses, air soft gun shooting, climbing, nerf wars, a beach walk AND a fashion show. Everyone having a great time with lots of laughter, but all ready for their own beds tomorrow night!
