Welcome to Primary 7 Room 12!
I hope you have all enjoyed your summer holidays.
I am looking forward to meeting you all on Wednesday morning, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready for the year ahead!!
We have been working hard since August.
During September, to mark European Languages Day, we were visited by some pupils from Antrim Grammar School. They taught the children in Primary Seven to count in French. They also taught the children the French names for colours and animals.
Enjoy browsing some photos taken that day!
Our class novel this term is called "When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit." It was written by the famous author, Judith Kerr, who penned "The tiger who came to tea" and the "Mog" books. We put some people in the "hotseat", whereby they had to answer questions in the persona of the central character, Anna.
Look at our photos, to see Owen and Rebeka replying to questions asked!
STEM WEEK 19th-23rd February
We have been undertaking various STEM activities this week. On Tuesday, we worked in groups to construct bridges. We discussed the various properties required to create a bridge and discovered that the strongest structures involve the use of triangular shapes. We split into four groups and constructed the following bridges, using K'Nex; suspension, arch, beam and truss. They're amazing!
Testing the bridges.
This was great fun! look at the photos to see which bridges were the strongest.
THE EGG CAR CRASH CHALLENGE
In our groups, we created an eggstra special car, made from recyclable materials. The car was designed to keep an egg safe when moving. The objective was to allow each car to move down a steep ramp, without breaking the egg. Look at the photos. It was great crack!!
