P7 Research Projects!! 
Over this past term, primary 7 have been focusing in on ourselves and the world around us. Part of this topic gave the class a chance to research an aspect for themselves, compile the information in a manner of their choice and then present it to the class. The class got to choose between two options: 'Rescue by land, air or sea' or 'Space'. The standard of these research projects, along with numerous hours contributed, made for some very creative and informative results. One of the highlights; being the creation of a 7ft tall replica of the Apollo rocket that took the lunar module to the moon. Really well done everyone! 
Start Your Engines!! 
Recently in Primary 7 we have been exploring various angles, with their properties and their application to real life, using time and points of the compass. Today we decided to put this knowledge of angles to the test by using our class 'Pro-Bot' to navigate our very own race track. Split into 3 teams we had to study the course and recognise the angles needed to successfully complete a complete lap. We used our ICT programming skills and our ability to communicate effectively. The spectators at times had their lives in their hands, but great fun was had by all.  
Pancake Tuesday 
What better way to get through the beginning of March, than to celebrate one of the best traditions around...Pancake Tuesday. Together we consulted our recipe and discussed the best means to measure eveything we needed. Pancakes were thoroughly enjoyed by all and unfortunately Mr Martin was to busy being chief safety officer, while the kids made their own pancakes, to take more pictures. 
Our Trip to the Ulster American Folk Park! 
Sometimes in Primary 7 we do actually get to lift our heads from our books and get out and about. Recently in World Around Us we have been learning about life in Ireland before, during and after the Famine. So what better place to visit than the Ulster American Folk park to experience first hand what life was like back then. We had a great day learning more and hearing some of the stories of some of the families from rural Ireland. Check out some of the photos below... 
So it's been a crazy few weeks as we all get used to the busyness of Primary 7 life. However, it's not all work, work, work in the classroom, we've had our fair share of fun to keep us sane. Recently Primary seven have been taking part in an Agility and Balance course, which has really been great at helping us to think about spacial awareness, movement and our hand-eye coordination skills. Check out some of the class in action below... 
At this rate you'll most likely see some of us on a TV near you......either on the sports report .....or on You've been framed!!
