World Around Us

In World Around Us we study a range of topics. This year, from September to December we will focus on Legends, where we will be focussing on the difference between myths and legends, a range of legends from around the globe, comparing legends to facts, rewriting legends in our own words and creating a profile on a ‘Real Legend’.

During term 2 our topic of Light will allow us to look at how light works, including the science behind our eyes, shadows, sunrise/sets as well as electricity, link to the images of light we see in different faiths and, for P7, linking to Confirmation.

Finally, our third topic of Impact will focus on the damage that has been done to the environment, how the weather and climate have changed, how animals have become endangered and which animal species are in the most danger, how people can make a difference in terms of protests and the impact that each individual has had on the people around them, the school, environment and for P7’s what impact they may have on their new school in September.

We tie in lots of other subjects to our topic, including ICT, Art, Music, Drama and PDMU as well Numeracy and Literacy. We incorporate ICT into a lot of the curricular areas too.

 

Religion

In RE, we use the “Grow In Love” programme and are working closely with the parish priest all year round.

 

Music

Music will be every Monday with Mrs. Sweeney. Pupils should bring their tin whistles and music folder every Monday.

 

Physical Education

Our PE days are on Tuesday and Thursday. Children can come to school in their PE clothes on these days. 

 

If you have any questions or just want to have a conversation with me, please contact the school or email me at ahaughey536@c2ken.net and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Please keep checking in throughout the year to see what we are getting up to in P6/7.

I’m really looking forward to the coming year and hope you all are too!
