Catholic Schools Week 2018
As part of Catholic Schools Week 2018, we did an activity about Our School Family. Miss Guiney talked us through various scenarios and asked us what would we do? Here we are acting out these scenes.
As part of our new topic "Space" we did an art activity, painting a picture of a rocket in the style of artist Peter Thorpe. As you can see it got a bit messy! At least the children had a ball!
A big well done to the team who took part in the Credit Union Quiz in St. Malachy's Primary School, Castlewellan on Monday 29th January. Our team, which consisted of James Glavin, Annie Clenaghan, Teagan Cleland and Aidan Mallet, came second, missing out on First Place by half a point! A big well done to St. Patrick's Primary School, Hilltown, who were victorious and go on to the next stage.
Welcome to Mrs Mc Kay's/ Miss McAlinden's P7's class page! Have a look around and see what we have been up to! We do lots of hard work but try to have fun too!
Our topic for this half term is "Thrills and Spillls". As a part of this topic, we are designing our own theme parks using a given budget. Here we are working on our designs.
As a Rights Respecting School, we work together to ensure all children have access to their rights and get what they deserve in life. Today, we looked at how refugees are treated and tried to put ourselves in their shoes to see how we would feel if we had to flee our own country to go to another one. We looked at the story of Paddington Bear, as he was also a refugee and completed a quiz about rights and an activity about what 4 items I would pack if I had to leave my family and country tomorrow!
