Room 12 - Miss Pankhurst
Welcome to Primary 7 Room 12!
I hope you have all enjoyed your summer holidays.
I am looking forward to meeting you all on Thursday morning, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready for the year ahead!!
We have been working hard since August.
During the morning of 26th September, to mark European Languages Day, we were visited by some pupils from Antrim Grammar School. They taught our children in Primary Seven to count to ten in French. They also taught the children the French names for colours and animals.

We have raised a fantastic amount of money!
Well done, everyone!
Our class are enjoying Accelerated Reading. It is a wonderful activity, which encourages pupils to read independently and to choose their own reading material, within their ZPD levels.
When they have finished reading a novel, pupils complete a test on the book. They score a number of points in the quiz and points accumulate to create prizes!
Accelerated Reading in Room 12
Today, we are creating books, using the "Book Creator" app. We are working in pairs, or groups of three, to write a book about a European country. This activity relates to this term's World Around Us topic.
Look at the photos! Everyone is focusing really hard on the task!

Well done, everyone!

Science in Room 12
Our student, Mr. McAteer, taught the class about density. He then, ably assisted by Blake, gave each group of pupils a bottle of water. Various liquids were poured into the bottles of water and it was very enlightening to see the results! Look at the photographs of this extremely interesting lesson!
