We are Primary 5 🤩
We look forward to showing you all what we get up to this year.
Hurling/Camogie tournament in Dunavil
P5,6 and 7 boys and girls travelled to Dunavil to play in the JB Sheehan schools cup. They all got to experience the games of hurling and camogie even if they had never played it before. They played teams from local Mourne schools. They really enjoyed the games and some children talked about joining the local teams on the way home on the bus.
We had a great day out on Monday when we travelled to the Sheepbridge entertainment centre in Newry. We played a few games of bowling and 2 games of lazer tag. It was great fun. We had lunch and then enjoyed a sing song on the way home in the bus.
Art and craft 🎨✂️✏️
We had great fun today in our art lesson trying ‘pop up cards’.
We followed a tutorial step by step and we’re delighted with our finishing pop up sharks 🦈
The Eco Team organised a paper free day in school to help cut back on the use of paper and it’s use. We were really looking forward to this as we are so used to using paper every day.
We found other alternatives to complete our work as we used whiteboards and markers, chromebooks to listen to audio books and enjoyed some dance workouts using the interactive whiteboard.
We had a visit from the PSNI Mourne Neighbourhood Team on Monday. They discussed ways to keep ourselves safe in the community and online. We talked about how important it is to not disclose information to others online and how to be very careful and sensible when typing anything online or in a message as it could affect our jobs in the future.
May is the month of Mary💙 🙏
We have set up a May altar in our classroom and we are beginning to learn the Hail Mary in the Irish language.
we are going to share our own intentions with the class and pray for them throughout the month on May.
St Brigid’s Day
We had great fun making St Brigid’s Crosses on the 1st of February. It was a tricky and difficult task for some but they turned out great!😀
Toy Friday 🧸
Today we got to bring in one toy that we got for Christmas. We loved talking about them and showing them to everyone in the class. We also got to play with them for a while.
KS2 Christmas show
Rock Around Christmas
Huge well done to all of KS2 and especially our Primary 5 children. You were absolutely brilliant! We’re very proud of you all.
Woolly Hat Day
On Friday we wore woolly hats to school as a fundraiser for Mourne Stimulus.
Thank you to all the parents for their contributions.
We had a lovely day on Tuesday when we travelled to the SSE arena in Belfast for the Peace Proms workshop. There were 3000 children from many schools. We had a great insight into what will happen at the concert in February. We can’t wait!
We designed and created maths games for the Primary 1 children this week. We spent time on Friday afternoon playing the games with the boys and girls. It was great fun!
