Today instead of toast for break we made bagel pizzas. They were yummy!

Today Primary 6 and 7 had a very valuable visit from the Police. We learnt about farm safety as well as safety online. We had the opportunity to ask questions and even got to ride in the police car! Thank you to the Police for a very enjoyable morning!

Sports Day

What a fantastic day we had on Tuesday. Much fun was had by all. Thanks to our brilliant PTA.

As part of Extended Schools P6 travelled to Lurgaboy today. They got to participate in many fun filled activities; Orienteering, Archery, High ropes (leap of faith) and Paddle boarding. Some fears were faced and many new skills learned. A great time was had by all.

P6 and 7 thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. Slushy, buns, picnic lunch, cake and games. With our bottle game being the clear favourite.

Every Friday morning for the past 5 weeks P7 have been learning of the dangers of drugs, solvents, alcohol and smoking. They have thoroughly enjoyed Genie coming to speak to them. A highlight, was the opportunity to try on 'beer goggles' and attempt to complete an obstacle course, without knocking over any of the cones.

Today P7 enjoyed a trip to Lurgaboy Adventure Centre with Newtownhamilton PS! We had great fun!

Today we celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Daily Mile. Don’t we look great in our new celebratory t-shirts.

Within our topic, Weather, pupils are learning about the wind. P6 and 7 pupils enjoyed making their own anemometers. We will record the wind speed with these and compare our data to the data from our new weather station.

Primary 6 and 7 enjoyed a wonderful morning to Brian's Wood at An Tobar. As we followed the three trails we explored the woodland. We learned about the native trees in our area, the ecosystems and habitats around us and some interesting facts about the geology. We rested in the beautiful sunshine and enjoyed our break in the wonderful outdoor classroom. To finish, we got to meet some of the locals and gather some eggs for tea!

P6/7 enjoyed a Minecraft day with Jamie from the Amma Centre. We learned so many new skills.

Enjoy your half term break P6 and P7!

We all had a fantastic class party which was deserved by all!

PTA movie morning!

We have been busy learning a new skill this week and making our own tapestry designs. It takes a lot of patience!

Some of us have been using k’nex and our imaginations to create new structures.

It’s been a busy week for Primary 6 and 7…


The PSNI visited school to talk to us about keeping safe online especially when so many of us love to play online games. Their message was very relevant and was a great reminder about what to do to keep ourselves safe when using the internet.

We have been writing instructions this week and decided we would make clay animals and write our instructions based on the process of making and painting our animals. 

Then we made some tasty pancakes for break and wrote our instructions for the ingredients and method we used.

They were yummy!

We have been learning about 3D Shapes and their properties so we made some posters to help us.

We love practical maths and have been using art straws to make quadrilaterals. 

Our task was to measure the area of the football pitch without using a metre stick or trundl wheel. We have been busy working in groups creating metre squares from paper. Let’s see how accurate we can be! 

Christmas craft club

On a Wednesday afternoon we have been enjoying making some Christmas’s never too early. We also get to enjoy a tasty snack and a drink after our hard day at school!

Today the police visited school to talk to us about Road Safety and Stranger Danger.

Then we all had the chance to sit inside the police car!

A wee treat before our half term holidays...Chocolate Apples!

Autumn walk 2021

P6 and P7 really enjoyed getting out in the fresh air and appreciating the nature all around our school. We had a busy time collecting as many blackberries as we could find to make some blackberry crumble when we got back to the classroom. We all agreed that some custard and our crumble would have been perfect!

We "Walked a Mile" to help Rory raise funds for the Cancer Fund for Children.
