Welcome to Mrs McCann's primary 7. We work extremely hard but also have a lot of fun in P7. Take a look at some of the activities and work we do throughout the year.
We all submitted our Halloween poster to the Newsdesk Competition and were delighted to hear that Keana was one of the winners. She was one of five winners in the KS2 entries. David Huntley called to visit and give Keana her prize of a Newsdesk goodie bag.
The PSNI came in to talk to us about road safety. They talked about how the speed limit within the school grounds is only 5mph. They also discussed how our parents need to park carefully. We walked through the areas around the school and pointed out cars that were parked incorrectly in different areas. We then went over to the main road and got a chance to use the speed camera.
As part of Maths week we had a CSI day. On arriving at school we discovered some of our trophies had been stolen. We had to solve lots of problems throughout the day to eliminate suspects. We successfully worked out that it was Mr McGuigan who 'stole' them. We had great fun and used our logic and computational skills to solve the mystery.
We have been working hard brightening up our classroom and displaying samples of our work.
We have been working on our problem solving, with the help of Mrs McLaughlin. We love using Izak9 and Mr Fusco was very impressed with our mental maths agility.
As part of our Titanic topic we looked at floating and sinking. We investigated what classroom items float and sink. We investigated how to make an orange sink and realised it would if the peel was removed. We also investigated how to make a ball of clay float and discovered that it could if it was reshaped into a boat design.
