Castledawson Primary School

Primary 6-7

We are very excited to be beginning a new school term on Monday 2nd September and to be welcoming back last year's P6 class as our new P7s as well as getting to know a whole new bunch of P6 children.

While there will be lots of hard work this term as P7 children prepare for the transfer test in November there is also lots of fun to be had.  Our first World Around Us topic is Ancient Egyptians.  This is a fascinating topic as we explore their lifestyles, beliefs and traditions as well as finding out about the country of Egypt and how it has changed over time.  Our visit to The Ulster Museum in Belfast to see Takabuti (the mummy) will no doubt be a highlight and definitely something to look forward to.

In numeracy we will be focusing on place value and on extending our understanding and use of numbers and in literacy we will be studying the life and works of Michael Morpurgo who wrote a range of our AR books (Kensuke's Kingdom, War Horse etc.)

As P6/7s are the oldest pupils in school they will be working on setting a great example to the younger pupils and we can't wait to see how our new pupil leaders develop and steer decision making in our school this year.  No doubt the boys and girls will be coming back with lots of great ideas about things that they would like to do in the year ahead.
