Shared Education Year 6 

At Castledawson Primary School we are beginning year six of our Shared Education partnership. We may not be able to meet face to face yet with our partner year groups at New Row PS but we are excited about the prospects and opportunities that await us for learning together through online forums.

Last year the focus of our teacher collaboration was to plan and conduct fun, progressive and creative outdoor literacy lessons.  All of which were very successful when delivered to our own classes.  Teachers will once again have the opportunity to meet and plan together this year for an area being developed in both schools.

Although our year was a little different, all teachers were able to meet with their partner teachers and P2/3 enjoyed Play Based Learning with an autumn and winter theme.

Lots of exciting opportunities await. 

Keep an eye on this page for updates of all our learning and experiences throughout the year.
