Shimna Intergrated College P7 Day
What a fun packed day our P7 boys and girls had in Shimna Integrated College. We created our very own Pacman game in ICT, learnt to record reactions in Chemistry, completed an orientation activity in Geography, took part in a quiz in Media studies, completed an Irish computer game in Irish and even participated in some acting in Drama. It really opened our eyes to some lovely new subjects that we are looking forward to getting stuck into next year, wherever we may be. A big thank you to our guides and everyone at Shimna for having us.
We had great fun getting active to support the NSPCC... some great dance moves being showcased in the Primary 7 room this week!!
Have a look at our action shots :)
Putting our ability to follow and give instructions to the test... Lego fun with Mrs White!
NSPCC Keeping Safe Workshop
Visual and Diagram Problems
Our focus in problem solving this half term is visual and diagram problems. We looked at the 'counting squares' problem... which seemed very simple but we soon realised there was more to it. We used our skill of logic and finding patterns to help approach the problem systematically so we wouldn't miss out any squares. This turned out to be tricky but great fun!!
We worked in pairs to sort decimal addition calculations in order of difficulty from least to most difficult, and arrange in a ‘Diamond 9’. We discussed which questions we could do mentally andwhich we might need to use a written method for. Some groups had the calculations in different order depending on the strategy they used to work out the Calculation.
St. Mark’s Football Tournament
On Monday the 19th of November we, the primary 7s, went to the foot ball tournament. We were split up into two groups. We each played five matches in total and we won a few in total. It was a very fun experience to go on the the bus to St.Marks. We had a great day playing football . By Éabha and Eva
Anti-Bullying Week 12th-16th November 2018
This year the theme is RESPECT! We discussed and debated the difference between relational conflict and bullying and completed activities related to bullying in our groups. We decided to say and do one act of kindness each day where we said positive words and did something positive for someone in our school#choosekindness.
Measure, Scale and Ratio
Our task was to measure lengths of the people that we chose in our groups. When we measured the lengths of the person we rounded it to the nearest multiple of 5. We then divided the measurements of the person by 10. We had drawn a scale of the person. By Jennifer and Tara
William Morris Art work
Have a look at our amazing William Morris inspired wall paper designed. As part of our topic on the Victorians, we looked at the work of William Morris and how he used intricate patterns from nature to create amazing tapestries, wallpapers and furniture.
We created our own small design which was scanned and repeated to give the effect of wallpaper... we think you'll agree they are just fabulous!
Maths Week fun 2018!!
This week, as well as all our usual maths work we had a task to create a game for pupils in Primary 4 which would make learning maths (or an element of it) fun... We worked really hard designing and creating our games and then let the P4s have a go. It was a great way to revise all our basic maths skills too. We also took part in the 'Mile a day' challenge throughout the week. Have a look at the clips below which explain how we created a game and how they work.
World mental health day.....
Let’s talk about it!
We celebrated mental health day by dressing in purple and having a lesson where we reflected on our emotions, why we feel the way we do and how we can manage our feelings when they are not so good.
European Day of Languages 2018
What an amazing effort all the P7 children put into their European Language Day celebrations this year!! They worked hard within their groups to prepare some fabulous resources, lessons on the language and food displays to teach the others about their chosen country. Well Done!!
