P7H had a visit from Mr Hutchinson, a technology teacher from City of Armagh High school. When he visited, he showed the class various circuits and how to solder. We look forward to having him back soon.
On the 7th June 2016 the P4-P7s had their annual sports day. P7H competed in a range of events that included the swag bag, standing long jump, obstacle race, class race, 200m race for the girls and 400m race for the boys. Everyone tried their very best in each event. Well done to everyone who placed and received a medal.
Linking in with the science we learnt on circuits, P7H recently spent time in class planning, designing and building robots. Working in groups, everyone worked very hard to create their robots using a range of materials. Take a look at some of the unique robots that sparked to life from our imaginations!
Gardens at the back of the school have been refurbished with new flower beds and fresh new soil from Markethill Primary School football pitch. With the help of Jonathon, an avid gardener, P7H were able to spend a day attending to the gardens. Primary 7 helped to de-weed the beds, turn and filter the soil before planting a variation of new plants that included carrots, red onions and horse radishes. Have a look at some of the fun the day entailed!
As part of 'World Around Us', P7H have been looking at the topic of electricity. As part of the topic, they made circuits testing different materials and learning about being safe with electrical equipment. Take a look at some of the fantastic circuits!
To celebrate the Queens 90th birthday, the school organised a 'Crazy Crown Day'. At home each pupil spent time creating and decorating crowns which have been brought into school today. Take a look at some of the P7H crowns. Amongst many fun activities planned for the day, the class have designed a cake fit for a Queen and will complete a fun fact-finding quiz.
An actor called Ben from the Kanflux Theatre Group worked with P7H to produce a 'Play in a Day'. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their time spent working on 'Romeo and Juliet'. At the end of the day the pupils from P4-P7 were invited to watch their performance.
On Tuesday 8th March the P7 pupils attended a 'Bee Safe' day in Armagh. They spent time learning about Fire Safety, how to stay safe when travelling on a bus and about wearing the correct safety equipment for sporting activities. They thoroughly enjoyed the day where the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, Translink and the ABC Council were present.
Ciara and Elaine came to visit us from Young Enterprise to teach us about trading across the world. It was interesting to find out about the different produce that is traded with everyday. We investigated where different parts of our school uniform is produced. It was amazing to see just how far some pieces have travelled, before they come to our local shops to buy. Even our pencils can have travelled from many parts of Europe! We all enjoyed our day of group work where we played lots of games too.
