Welcome to Primary 6

 

Welcome back to Primary 6!

We trust you had a wonderful Easter and are looking forward to all of the exciting things we have planned for this term! This term we will be learning about Early Explorers as part of our World Around Us topic.

Please enjoy looking through the photos below, these will hopefully give you a taste of life in Primary 6 at Mossley Primary School.

 

Meet your Primary 6 teachers!

On Wednesday 21st June, Mossley Primary School hosted a 'Sports Activity Day' for all children from P1-P7. The day gave children the opportunity to take part in sports that they wouldn't usually get a chance to do and also it allowed them to practise their skills in the sports they loved. Here is a taster of some of the activities our children enjoyed.

On Thursday 11th May, P6 Room 21 had a 3D Shape Blitz Morning! During the morning we completed five different activities all to do with 3D shapes. We used a  Key Stage 2 Maths App on the school iPads to reinforce our knowledge of the properties of 3D shapes, we made posters on the nets and properties of 3D shapes, we made a Venn Diagram to compare and classify 3D shapes and we labelled the properties of 3D shapes.

We hope you enjoy looking at the photos of what was a truly exciting morning of maths!!

As part of our Area and Perimeter topic, Primary 6 carried out a maths investigation. Their task was to design enclosures for Farmer Ted's animals that had recently escaped. Farmer Ted was very particular about what he wanted for his farm and so the children had to experiment with perimeter to create the best enclosures for the animals.

We hope you enjoy looking at some of our fabulous creations!!

On Friday 24th March, Primary Six went on a Year Group to Nendrum, County Down as part of our Viking topic. While on the trip, we learned about the part the Vikings played in this historic village. Also, as part of our Numeracy work, we did an investigation to discover the area and the perimeter of the grounds, these we measured using trundle wheels.

STEM Viking Towers P6 R21

On Wednesday 1st March, P6 completed this term's STEM project entitled, 'Viking Towers.' The task required the children to use a range of materials to design and build a Viking Tower. The tower was to have a rotating turret upon which a monk could stand and look out for approaching Vikings. The turret was to operate remotely and should be able to make a 360 degree turn.

The children had to first discuss ideas for how to best make use of the materials available to them and then had to work together to build their Viking tower. The photos above show some of the fantastic efforts that were made by the children.

 

Inside Out Day

On Friday 3rd February, we hosted an 'Inside Out Day' in aid of Stand by Me, a charity that operates in Ethiopia and other countries across the world with a focus of ensuring that all children have access to safe, clean water.

We hope you enjoy looking at some of the outfits chosen by our children and we would like to thank all the children and parents for supporting such a worthy cause.

On Friday 27th January, Primary 6 had a Viking Day. Since the beginning of January, we have been learning about Vikings in World Around Us and so took this opportunity to have a Viking themed day.

In the morning, the children had a Viking fashion show in their classes, showing off their costumes and home made shields and weapons. The children also took part in a Rune Art lesson led by Mr. Moreland, a Viking clay lesson led by Mr. Uprichard and got the opportunity to delve deeper in the Vikings' history in Miss. Stewart's 'Viking Museum.'

We would like to thank all children and parents for the hard work they put into preparing for today and hope you enjoy looking at the photos of what was a truly wonderful day.

Berlin Trip 2016

Despite an inauspicious start our trip has been excellent so far.  The hostel is lovely and full of character.  The food has been good and we've all had enough to eat.  Once we had dinner we headed to Potsdamerplatz and enjoyed the Christmas market for an hour or two.  No spoilers about the gifts you will receive! This morning we headed to our partner school in Bad Saarow.  We were made extremely welcome and received a tour of the school before joining in some Christmas songs and playing games.  We used some of the German we have been learning and even watched a Christmas play. 

 

After lunch we did a treasure hunt around the beautiful spa town of Bad Saarow, spotting the local sites and walking out to one of the many lakes in the area.  This evening we are relaxing in the hostel, filling in our diaries and playing some pool.  We may even get some sleep!

Our final day at Woodhall arrived. wink    Once again the weather was very kind to us.  With harnesses and helmets on we set out to conquer any fear of heights on the climbing wall and get some adrenaline fuelled thrills on the zipline.  After a great lunch we all went to Maud's or Mullins for and ice-cream or some sweet treats before we headed back to the centre to do a review of our week.  Our efforts were rewarded when Phyllis awarded us a Golden Group Award!!  We pack our last few bits and pieces into our bags, had a last photo on the steps of the centre and headed back home.  It was a very enjoyable and tiring week. We'd like to say a massive thank you in particular to our group leader, Phyllis but also to the other instructors, Brian, Jimmy, Dermot, Janet, John and Billy and to the catering and household staff who made our trip so enjoyable.  A big debt of gratitude is also due to Mr Gray for coming with us and to Miss Robinson who was at Woodhall for the first time,

Day three was another action packed one! We started the day by tackling the low ropes and high ropes courses.  The latter including the 'Leap of Faith'.  We also channelled our inner Robin Hood during archery and brought the board games to life with 'Human Jenga'.  Not content with that we ventured out after lunch to Movanagher Canal and did some canoeing.  The teachers and staff showed us how to control the boats before we had a kids race back to the slipway.  Some of us (including Mr Uprichard) got a bit soggy having a water fight.  We felt we weren't quite wet enough so a few of us jumped in when we had finished.  The water was running out the doors of the minibus by the time we got back to the centre.  We had a relaxing evening after dinner and began packing up before chilling out with a movie and a few well earned treats. Phew!

Our second day at Woodhall was even busier than our first! We started the day by walking to one of Northern Ireland's most famous landmarks, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.  The weather was lovely and we met people from America, India and Germany as we walked.  On the walk back from Carrick-a-Rede, Brian (one of the Woodhall instructors) pointed out wild foods which you can eat and some of us tried Sorrell which tasted like apple and Vetch which tasted like peas!  After a picnic lunch in Ballintoy we did some individual challenges by clambering through a tunnel, learning how early humans started fires and then did some ecology work on the beach with our group leader, Phyllis.  After that we had a walk along Whitepark Bay beach and did some nature art before heading back to the centre.  Mr Mulligan joined us for dinner and accompanied us on our night walk.  Mr Uprichard taught us a silly campfire song before we returned to the centre for supper.  It was a very enjoyable but tiring day.
Our first day consisted of team building challenges as we tackled 'The Crystal Maze'.  We had to work together to solve physical or mental challenges, or sometimes both.  We were the 'best group ever' and every team ended the challenge with over twenty five crystals.  In the evening we did some night orienteering around the centre using head torches.  Everybody improved their map reading skills before we headed in for some supper.  After supper we tidied up and headed to our rooms.  Some of us even slept!

Day 3 Woodhall Room 19

The weather didn't dampen our spirits today, it just made our activities even more fun! This morning everyone challenged themselves with high ropes activities and perfected their technique during archery sessions. Canoeing in the wind and rain wasn't easy but through good teamwork, encouragement and hard work we managed to get to the end of the canal and back! Some crazy children even jumped into the River Bann (with permission). Tonight we are continuing to build friendships through games. All the children have been so well behaved, well mannered, given every activity their all and shown great enthusiasm - they are each a credit to you and have been a pleasure to have on this residential. See you all at 3pm tomorrow :)

WOODHALL 2016 Primary 6 Room 19

 

We all had another exciting day on our residential! We explored White Park Bay and found many interesting items! We were all brave and had a go at caving, learned how to make a fire and learned about rock formation at Ballintoy Harbour! Tonight we're enjoying a 'movie and munch' night'. Everyone is very sleepy and are looking forward to an early night, ready for canoeing on the River Bann tomorrow followed by High Rope activities. All are well, safe and having a ball!
