Roots of Empathy - Home Learning
Take a look at what we got up to! You'll see an escape room, authentic food, dancing, games, craft, quiz and some incredible outfits. Brilliant job everyone.
Trip To The Ulster Museum
What a day we had at the museum! We saw the Takabuti exhibition before getting to hold some artefacts which were thousands of years old. It was a terrific day and we couldn't believe we were allowed to hold the real objects from ancient tombs. Thanks to Fiona Baird and the Ulster Museum.
We celebrated the start of the run up to Easter by making our own pancakes! Here we are measuring, weighing, cracking, flipping and eating our way to success.
We have been discovering how the ancient Egyptians had to think creatively living with the problem of little water. We tried to recreate the shaduf mechanism which was popular with farmers along the Nile. Our winning design nearly held 1kg!
It's a tough one! If you're having trouble understanding please watch the following tutorial.
UEFA U19 Portugal v Germany
What a day we had at the Ballymena Showgrounds. We were so thrilled to be a part of the international friendly and to get to lead the teams out. The children did wonderful jobs at being mascots and ball boys/girls. Well done.
Roots of Empathy Week 2
Baby Freya visited us! Here are some snaps of her first visit to P5. We loved meeting baby and mum and can't wait to journey this year with them.
Visit from the Dentist
Both P5 classes had a really interesting visit from our very own Susan McKeown as part of our Superhuman topic. We learnt so much from you Susan and are much more aware of how to better look after our teeth. Thank you so much for taking the time to come and see us.
Key To Life
P5 were invited to the Key to Life event held within the grounds of Buick Memorial PS. It was an impressive interactive presentation and discussion which we thoroughly enjoyed!
Digestive System Investigation
We did a bit of a gross investigation on Wednesday! You can see some smiles and some horrified faces as we followed the steps of how food is broken down, processed and absorbed by the body.
Measuring Our Heart Rate
In our Superhuman topic, we've been looking at the heart. Here we are investigating the impact of exercise on our heart rates.
Working with Money
Thanks to all who sent in some money. Here we are getting to grips with coins and giving change from £1.
