At the end of January, Primary 1 went on an exciting trip to Quality Time in Banbridge. The theme was "Space" and the children enjoyed playing with all the many educational toys and learned a lot about this topic. The boys and girls got to dress up as astronauts and play in an amazing space den. They loved putting on scientists' coats and examining different rocks. The children experimented with magnets and forces and developed imaginative play skills with rockets and space shuttles. The highlight of the trip (apart from the wonderful snack time of fruit, pancakes, cheese and crackers) was painting and printing with magical space paint - which GLOWED IN THE DARK!
