2018-19

We painted and varnished our mini beasts. They turned out really well!

We are making a Minibeast of our choice using clay. Keep watching this page to see our final creations!
We have started our new topic of 'Minibeasts'. We went on a Minibeast hunt around the school grounds. We found so many!

Accelerated Reader- Year 4 won the class party this term! We had an Easter Egg hunt and lots of treats! Well done boys and girls!

Today our friends from St. Oliver Plunkett's came over so we could see each others' gargoyles and paint them. They looked really authentic! We can't wait to show them off at our shared art exhibition in May.

We worked in groups to perform the poem we have been studying this week- 'The Bogeyman' by Jack Prelutsky. We added our own ideas to enhance the meaning and rhythm of the poem.

As part of our 'What a waste' topic, we wanted to find out how much waste we collected throughout school during a whole day. We then sorted the waste in different categories.

We have been designing and making clay gargoyles as part of our Shared Education programme. It takes a lot of concentration!

WORLD BOOK DAY 2019- The boys and girls made a 'book in a box' based on a book they had read. They were so imaginative and really enjoyed this creative challenge!

As part of our 'Rescue at Sea' topic, we made lighthouses then built circuits to light the bulbs. It was really good fun!

We followed instructions to make reindeer napkin holders for our Christmas dinner!

We have been learning Highland Dancing. Kathryn from Ulster Scots comes every Thursday to teach us new skills. We love dancing with swords and the music is fantastic!

We had to design and build towers with our friends from St. Oliver Plunkett's. They had to be a metre high- it was quite a challenge! We worked in teams and helped each other to make sure we had a firm foundation and base. It was great fun strengthening our towers and our friendships!

We have been using IPads to make our WW2 stories come to life. We loved using the Chatterpix app to develop our characters. It was so much fun!

We made model WW2 fighter planes out of paper and then tested them. We added a paper clip and some blue tac to the front to see if this would make them fly better. We had such fun seeing how far they could travel!

We followed a wartime recipe to make carrot cookies. We were surprised at how the carrot sweetened the cookies! They were very tasty!

These clever readers followed instructions in their reading book to make caterpillars. Didn't they do a good job?

We had a wonderful morning at Armagh County Museum, finding out about life in World War 2. We loved hearing the air raid siren and making our own gas masks!
