Together we Learn


P5 had a great trip today around Randalstown as part of their topic of 'On Our Doorstep'. They stopped off at the Kandy Shop first to get sweets for later. Then they walked around the River Walk and up to the Viaduct where they had their snack. After that they went to the park and ate their picnic before finishing the day at The Coffee Co. They also participated in a scavenger hunt while they were walking and saw lots of local sights including the new sculpture at the Viewpoint.

The face of happiness when you get everything correct in your phonics lesson!

P5 had a great Take 5 day today. They 'Kept Learning' by doing a whiteboard Friday test, Daily 10 tables and Orienteering. They were 'Active' in P.E. learning how to do a forward roll. They 'Took Notice' by listening to music and noting how it made them feel. They also wrote and gave letters of gratitude to people who had made them feel like they matter. #take5
