Homework is being set on a half termly basis. Each night we expect P6 to do:

  1. Reading,
  2. Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check target spellings
  3. Learning number facts

They will also have their choice board for that half term and they can choose which tasks to complete each week. These can be sent into school on Seesaw.                

PE is on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Everyone should have outdoor shoes kept in school for PE.



Term 1 Topic - Around the World

Through this topic we explore our world from here at home to far away. We look at famous places round the world as well as exploring culture, dance, art and music in other countries. We use the internet to research transport in other countries and we have a look at some food from other countries.

Term 2 Topic - Polar Explorer/Titanic

The topic of Titanic really captures the thoughts and feelings of P6 as they explore this extraordinary disaster with its roots so firmly sewn in Northern Ireland. We journey from construction in Belfast and design by Thomas Andrews of Comber to the maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

in parallel to this we learn about the RRS Attenborough and it’s role in research at the South Pole. We will compare and contrast the ships, their construction, roles and uses.


Term 3 Topic - Bridges

In this topic we learn about the role of bridges and some of the famous bridges in the United Kingdom and further afield.  We explore the construction of bridges through technology activities and have a go at building our own.
