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!!
Here are some lovely photos of our class members for the year 2019/20.
Do you recognise anyone?
PDMU IN ROOM 12
Getting to know you!
We discussed various topics, including favourite foods, hobbies and pets. The results were very interesting, as you can see from the photos!
EUROPEAN LANGUAGES STUDENTS IN SCHOOL TODAY (2nd October 2019)
Today, we were joined by some students from Antrim Grammar School, who taught the class to speak Spanish.
Our class members were taught how to count to twenty in Spanish. They also learned the names of pets and some colours. Isla especially enjoyed the lesson, because she lived in Spain and is fluent in Spanish!
Look at the photos to view what happened in Room 12.
Accelerated Reading in Room 12
We have been participating in Accelerated Reading since Primary Six. It is a fabulous activity, which encourages children to read for pleasure, whilst increasing their vocabulary and improving reading skills.
Hot Seating in Room 12
Our class novel this term is, "When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit." It was written by Judith Kerr, who also penned "The Tiger who
came to Tea."
During the lesson, pupils sat in the "hotseat" and answered questions asked by their peers, in the persona of either Anna or Max.
What an enjoyable activity!
PRACTICAL MATHS IN ROOM 12
We are using protractors to measure and draw angles.
Look at the concentration on some of the pupils' faces!
THE FAMINE IN IRELAND
We are studying the Great Famine, which occurred in Ireland , from 1845 until 1850. Today, we walked across the road, to view the building which used to be the workhouse in Antrim and to discuss the conditions in which people lived, during this time.
Upon our return to school, we shared some excerpts from our Famine Diaries.
BIG SCHOOL BIRDWATCH
We have been birdwatching this week.
Look at the photos of our budding ornithologists!
We love STEM Week!

Study our photos and see if you can guess the winner!
We are meeting with our friends from St. Comgall's to participate in Tag Rugby.

SHARED EDUCATION TAG RUGBY TOURNAMENT
We participated in a Tag Rugby tournament at Antrim Forum, as part of our Shared Education. It was a super day, despite the weather!
Our Class Assembly 13/3/20
Today, we performed our assembly, in front of Key Stage 2 classes. The theme was "Victorian Children" and we looked at the jobs carried out by poor children during Queen Victoria's reign. Employment in which Victorian children were involved, included chimney sweeping, flower selling and working in the local mills. Also in the spotlight, were children from well to do homes, who were educated by a governess.
The assembly was excellent and Miss McClenaghan and I are extremely proud of our class!
