The P7 Apprentice
We have thoroughly enjoyed buying (and bargaining 😃) from the wide selection of treats on offer at this year’s Apprentice stalls. We may have a few sore tummies later 🤪.
Day 1 - active morning, dance, mile a day, drop everything and dance, classroom orienteering.
Back-to-school after a busy week away. The P6s were very excited to use the new school iPads to create an e-book about their week, whether in a Manchester or in school.
P6/7 tested out their construction skills by making boats out of kitchen foil, then testing them to see how seaworthy they were. Once in the water we placed pennies in the to see how many each boat would hold before it started to sink. Needless to say some needed quite a bit of improvement!
Numeracy in Art
P6 were looking at some examples of numeracy that is found in famous artwork and everyday life. We learned about tessellation, and how MC Escher’s used tessellation in his paintings, before we tried our own patterns using shapes as a stamp.
Easter Art! 🐣
We looked closely at a Creme Egg. We drew and painted the egg. Then we took off the wrapper and took a bite. We drew and painted what it now looked like. Most were gobbled up before we went home! Happy Easter!
We finished off our topic on materials by making Rubbish Monsters from the rubbish we normally throw away. Lots of creative ideas on how to use rubbish we’re shown. A great way to reduce, reuse and recycle waste. ♻️
Class trip to Frankie and Benny’s in Lisburn
To finish our topic on food we went on a trip to learn about how pizza is made and the types of foods that are used. We loved getting our own chef’s hat and apron. We each made a pizza with our choice of toppings and shaped a breadstick. Once they came out of the oven, we enjoyed our efforts. The manager, Elaine, complemented us all on our behaviour, helpfulness and manners! A lovely end to a fabulous morning 👍😁🍕
Today P6, along with all of Moyallon, said a sad farewell to Lewis and his brother Adam, who are both moving to England. We found some time to take one last class photo, and we wish Lewis all the best in his new school!
