P6 is a very busy, but enjoyable year. Our teacher is Mrs Malcolmson and our classroom assistant is Mrs Welshman. Our topics this year are:
- The Human Body
Have a look at what we have been up to...
One of our topics in P6 is 'The Human Body'. It is a very interesting topic and is made even more special by the fact that we have a medical student from Queen's University who comes in each week of our topic and teaches us. This is a partnership between ourselves, Sentius and Queen's University. It provides accurate, in depth teaching and learning of the human body, and gives the medical student an opportunity to engage with children and develop their communication skills. It has inspired some of us to want to become doctors when we are older (and hopefully inspired our medical student to want to work in paediatrics).
We invited Fitness Freddy to school to help us raise some funds for the Hospice by being sponsored on our Fitness Freddy day. It was very tiring, but lots of fun, and we enjoyed all the cool music he played.
During the first term of the P6 year we go swimming. Here we learn very important life-saving skills. We get 10 sessions and at the end we get certificates to show our progress and improvement.
Every week we have been having ICT lessons with Mr Shephard. Over the past few weeks we have been looking at coding. Our most recent task was to write the correct code for a character to escape from a maze. We had to type in all the code for ourselves, remembering to check each stage of the code to 'de-bug' our programme if it didn't work properly.
We were invited to attend Bethany Church recently to visit the Life Exhibition. We had great time learning about the life of Jesus.
