Welcome to Primary 6/7

Class Teacher: Miss. L. Bartlett

Welcome to Primary 6/7

We are all very excited to be back at school and we are having lots of fun learning back in our classroom. Have a look at some of the things that we have been up to!



In Literacy we have been learning all about Newspaper Report Writing and have some new budding journalists in our class. 
Our new class novel is “Under the Hawthorn Tree” by Marita Conlon-McKenna. In this novel we have been learning all about how life was during the Famine in Ireland.



Throughout September we have been revising lots of key skills in Numeracy and are currently exploring Place Value and 2D shape.


World Around Us

Our current topic is “Farm and Famine”. We have been exploring what life was like in Ireland at this time and even had an attempt at making our own gruel from the workhouses. Opinions were mixed on Miss Bartlett’s cooking skills!


In PE we have been working to develop our Fundamental Movement Skills and Co-ordination Skills. We had great fun having a go at golf to try and develop these skills!

Place Value Hunt

Primary 6/7 had lots of fun with outdoor learning when they went on a Place Hunt around the playground, working together to solve word problems with numbers up to 1 million! Great work boys and girls!
