During the first week of term, P4S enjoyed a visit from Young Enterprise’s representative Nicola. The theme of the session was Our Community and the children really enjoyed learning about what constitutes a community and how communities are funded. They were most surprised when they discovered that they had to give lots of their hard earned wages to the government to pay for certain services such as health, education and policing.  They decided what they’d like in an ideal community and designed these. This was a very interesting and educational session for all.

P7T did a great job in their technology project creating their inflatable lungs. The bin bag acts as the diaphragm muscle pulling air into our lungs. In this project, the balloon acts as our lungs, where air is literally pulled in an airtight container (plastic bottle). The children did a great job creating them. Pupils explained the process very well in the video. Well done P7T.

P7 Teggarty travelled to Armagh on Thursday 9th December to avail of an opportunity to work with local artist, Orlaith Cullinane. Pupils had the chance to look around the local Museum exhibition - all about the creation of Northern Ireland. They were fascinated about the history of the creation of the state, particularly the different symbols and traditions mentioned. The Art workshop's focus was on the coinage used at the time - it took its inspiration from local farm animals. Pupils were tasked to make their own and created some unique specimens. It's safe to say that pupils enjoyed themselves. Have a look at their wonderful creations!

Our topic this half term has been Happy Humans. We’ve spent this week learning about the heart and how it pumps blood all around our bodies. Today, we tested how four different exercises affected our heart rate. As well as having a really fun morning, we learned why our pulse increases when we exercise - because the heart is pumping blood around the body quicker than when we are resting! The hardest part for some of us was actually finding our pulse in the first place!!

 
 
 
 
15th Dec 2021

Since we had no Healthy Kidz this week, P7MM got working on their hockey skills. The children learnt the basics of holding the hockey stick, dribbling and ball control. There was some great team work with pupils encouraging and cheering on their team mates, and even after just two sessions this week, we could really see an improvement in some of the skills. Well done all!

P7T’s Science experiment for this term was to check their rate of pulse before and after five different exercises. Pupils have been learning about the Human Body and the importance of exercise - and how our bodies use oxygen. They had a lot of fun checking their pulse rates and were amazed to see just how much their heart beats when they work their bodies. Amazing job, P7

 
 
 
 
 
15th Dec 2021

P7T’s WAU topic has been The Human Body. We have been learning about the many different functions of amazing bodies including the importance of the heart, lungs and muscles. In our Art project, we have been showing these functions in action by drawing different people playing different sports - showcasing the type of movements we can do with our muscles, bones and joints. P7 really enjoyed trying to draw the different movements and are looking forward to the finished product. Great job, P7.

The results were fantastic! A lot of time, effort and thought were evident in the completed pieces.
