P7 Fun Day

P7 celebrated their time at Botanic PS with a trip to Belfast Activity Centre and a special lunch cooked by the kitchen staff (including delicious buns). They also got their Leavers' Hoodies. What a treat!

Mindfulness 

P7 created mindfulness patterns on the shape of their hand and filled their pages with affirmations for how amazing they are!

We have enjoyed our class novel, Hatchet. We created a 3D representation of the scenes from the book.

Saint Patrick’s Workshop

P7 took part in a fantastic celebration of St. Patrick through three workshops: one on weapons and Vikings; one which involved making St. Bridget’s crosses, and our final workshop was from a professional  storyteller. 

STEM

Thank you to Kristian for joining us for a STEM workshop on the environment and the impact we have on the environment in many different ways. P7 had lots of questions for him!

 

Eco Fun

Shared Education Animations 

We finished our animations on water pollution. They are very impressive!

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day, we dressed up as book characters, started making a book themed lantern and had our second video call with Orla who is writing a book using our ideas on diversity!

Pancake Tuesday 

P7 enjoyed some homemade pancakes. Some people even went back for thirds!

Valentine's Day Disco

Shared Education 

We have been writing postcards to our friends in Holy Rosary. Our postcards were about an environmental issue and we enjoyed receiving a postcard in return. We are working on creating a poetic animation for water pollution which we will share with Holy Rosary.

Book Talk

We loved our 'Book Talk' session on our new class novel.

Cats Protection
We had an online meet with Kirsten from Cats Protection who talked to us about keeping cats safe and well. We enjoyed all the goodies!

Thinking Skills & Personal Capabilities 

P7 have been developing and improving their thinking skills, talking and listening skills and team work. We took part in a debate over the future of Botanic Gardens and we performed a poem in groups, using music and ICT to make our performances even more engaging. 

Impact: How do Plants Survive?

We have been learning about how plants survive through science experiments. We discovered how plants use capillary action to transfer water from the ground to the leaves and placed plants in agreed locations to determine the optimum condition for growth. P7 chose to place one plant in a cold location (in the store), one in a warm location (under the radiator) and two plants beside the window for sun and air: one watered and one unwatered. We also enjoyed a live lesson from BBC.

Wheelworks After-Schools Club

P7 have been creative as they think about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Numeracy: Shape

Inspiring Artists

 

P7 have been studying some famous artists from around the world and have created work inspired by Picasso and Van Gough.
