P6 Mr Sinclair 

Hello and welcome to the our class section of the website. We have been very busy this year in P.6 with so much happening!

In Term 1 we enjoyed making our own Tsunami animations with the support of The Nerve Centre and had our class mass. So far in Term 2 we have been very busy as well with our class assembly, a trip to the Titanic museum and a visit from the NI Waterbus! Coming soon we will be taking part in fundraising activities for Trocaire and will be taking part in Fairtrade Fortnight.

We love learning with i-Pads and have been using 'Active Maths' to develop key number concepts on the iPad. Jungle Time and Jungle Coins have proved very popular apps this Term in our class!  In Literacy we have used the iPads to make our own versions of the Titanic to put into an iStory on our trip to the Titanic museum and on the story of the Titanic. 

For PE we enjoyed swimming for ten weeks in the Queens PEC and on Wednesday afternoon we have P6 multi sports  where pupils take part in a chosen sport of their choice every week. Our extra PE day in Term 2 and 3 continues to be a Monday morning.

In World Around Us we learnt about life and living conditions in Ireland during The Great Irish Famine and in Term 2 have enjoyed learning about the Titanic. Our class have really enjoyed doing 'Learning Logs' for homework and have produced some amazing work through a variety of ways to showcase our learning on The Famine, our water topic and The Titanic. We have enjoyed presenting these to the class using Airplay on the big screen in class and have enjoyed taking part in peer evaluative feedback of each other's work. We even built some replica versions of the SS Titanic at home, including versions of the three classes on board the ship.

In Religion we have been learning about families and are now learning about Lent through our Grow in Love program. Through class discussion we have had the chance to share our different cultural and faith experiences with the class.

In our class we believe in positive behaviour to uphold our responsibilities for children's rights. Each day we have a ' Star of the Day' to reward positive behaviour. We also have a 'Star of the Week', 'Star of the Month', 'Star of the Half Term' and 'Star of the Term'. Well done to all the winners so far and to all the winners of the monthly school awards!

These awards are in recognition of all round contribution to school life:

  • commendable pupil endeavour
  • focused work in class and at home
  • being a good friend to others 
  • working well in groups 
  • achieving personal targets
  • good listening
  • regular effort to participate in class discussion
  • consistent effort with reading at home and in school
  • excellent attendance 
  • perseverance 

In Literacy this term we have been learning about persuasive writing and have had the chance to create our own adverts for the Titanic and for our own products which we designed ourselves. Next up we are planning to create our own TV adverts for the products we made in one of our learning logs. 

Earlier in the year we linked our water topic with our Literacy by creating and designing our own Tsunami animations through the help of the Nerve Centre. This gave us a chance to show off our iPad skills by combining our film and animation with various iPad apps to incorporate sound and special effect editing into the finished product. We  enjoyed learning about Natural Disasters around the world and have learnt a lot about the importance of water and saving water.

In Numeracy we have been learning about written multiplication, place value and have been doing a lot of practical work on shape, measures and time. We had fun learning about capacity by using different liquid ingredients to make our own mixture to form one of George's Marvellous Medicine potions!

In December we braved the cold weather to compete in timed running speed races to develop our knowledge of rounding numbers to the nearest whole number and nearest tenth.

We have a wide range of activities to enjoy every week in P.6. Some of our class took part in a cross community basketball project called 'Peace Players' with Belvior Park Primary School which was really exciting. Mrs Cooke comes in on Thursday to team teach ICT lessons, we have Spanish on a Tuesday and Chinese lessons every Monday afternoon. We also have talented musicians who take part in weekly lessons and have a number of pupils representing the various sports teams in the school.

In March we have shown our support for FAIRTRADE by having a FAIRTRADE bun sale in P6 which raised over £380 for the Fairtrade Foundation!

We also took part in the green non uniform day and disco to celebrate St. Patrick's day, raising funds for the HSA in the process.

We have lots of events and exciting things to look forward to in the next few months so keep checking our page to see what fun events we are involved in!
