Fun at the farm
We had a fantastic morning at the Ark Open Farm. Children were given a guided tour of the farm, having the opportunity to handle and feed some of the animals. Our visit was funded through the Peace IV Programme, courtesy of the wonderful staff at Todds Leap and Wheelworks. The children had a fantastic time.
digital numeracy and music skills
P2 and P3 have been using ICT to help with their Numeracy and Music skills.
We were doing Yoga for Mental Health Week.
Information communicated to families at our recent Curriculum Meeting is now available below. If you have any queries, please contact the class teacher.
We are delighted to have restarted our Forest School sessions at the outset of the year with children making great use of the plentiful outdoor space in the idyllic surroundings of Cloughey Bay to assist and enhance their learning. Primary 2 & Primary 3 children have been using non-standard units of measure including straws, stones, shells, shoes and string. They have been thinking about how non-standard units of measure and useful but also their limitations and why, for example, a builder might not want to measure in this way.

using carroll diagrams to sort
P2 & P3 were using Caroll Diagrams to sort coins, fruit and all sorts of animals. Some even collated their findings in a table. There were numerous examples of brilliant team work and great counting skills. Well done to all the boys and girls.
As we are unable to host our traditional curriculum meetings for parents, we have prepared an information pack instead. The pack can be downloaded below and should help parents feel informed about how / what their children will be learning this year. Should any questions remain, please telephone the school office (028 42771455) to make an appointment with the class teacher. Please note that appointments must be made and all visitors will be expected to wear a face covering / mask.
Primary 2 and Primary 3 children will return to school on Wednesday 26 August 2020 (9am - 11am).
P3 and P4 have been involved in the wonderful 'Forest Schools' project. See more photos on our dedicated page.
Art from trash community project
Children in P3 and P4 are taking part in a great recycling project, using materials that might ordinarily be discarded to create a wonderful piece of art to display in school. Funded by the County Down Rural Community Network (CDRCN) and organized with the help of the ever helpful and supportive Cloughey and District Community Association, the project has been led by Heather and Sally from the Community Art Project Arts Centre. The project will finish with a final session on Wednesday 11 March 2020 where children will design and create their own t-shirts!!!
