Artist workshop with Johanna Leech 🎨 today P6 were visited by Johanna Leech, a Belfast based creative who is currently the resident artist in Millenium Court Arts Centre in Portadown (next door to Zio’s!). She has a fantastic exhibition running until Christmas and I would thoroughly recommend you all to visit. The creations made by P6S pupils will be hung on the huge Christmas tree in the Arts Centre. Pop along and see yours hanging! 🎄
Viking Day - what a fantastic way to finish our Viking topic! The boys and girls had a ball taking part in a range of different activities. Thank you to The Active Learning Company for putting on such a great day!
P6S used the iPad app ‘GeoBoard’ to create symmetrical patterns. We even had a competition to see who could create the coolest Halloween themed pattern! 🧙♀️🎃 👻
A huge thank you to Mervyn Steenson, head chef at Groucho’s, who visited school today to deliver a Healthy Smoothie demo. The boys and girls loved seeing what ingredients you could use and asked Mervyn lots of interesting questions about healthy food!
During Well Being Week, P6S looked at how compliments can do wonders for your mood. We discussed how easy it was to brighten someone’s day by paying them a lovely compliment. Each pupil wrote down two compliments about another pupil and designed a wing for our display. Compliments Give Us Wings to Fly! 😀

A massive thank you to Mrs Robinson from Action Mental Health who visited P6S today. She delivered a fantastic talk on ‘Healthy Me’, promoting awareness of both physical and mental health and encouraging pupils to talk about their feelings and seek help if they’re struggling. A wonderful message!

Following a WAU homework where P6S had to design a Viking brooch, this young man went a step further and actually made his. Very impressive!👏 👏
