This could be one of the most exciting years of your primary school experience as you join the fun and learning with Mr Quinlan and Mr Patterson. The Adventure of Life is to Learn!
The Big Man himself took some time out of his busy schedule to pop in and say hello to Year 6. He was very kind gave each of us a gift before Christmas Day. He certainly felt welcome as everybody was wearing their Christmas Jumpers in aid of the Simon Community.
P6 had a wonderful hands on experience of exploring animal classification thanks to Mrs Kingham who visited from Bangor Academy and Sixth Form Centre. We met cockroaches, snails, stick insects, millipedes, hamsters and a guinea pig named Carly.
Animals are divided into two main groups. Animals that have a backbone are called vertebrates. Animals that don't have a backbone are called invertebrates. Vertebrates and invertebrates are divided into smaller groups. Vertebrates, for example, are divided into fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Mrs Kingham told us some of the scientific words used to divide invertebrates.
Year 6 really enjoy Reciprocal Reading sessions as it allows them further opportunities to be in charge of their learning. The boys and girls demonstrate excellent skills as they take on the 5 Roles (Boss, Predicting Police, Summarising Superhero, Clarifying Clown and Questioning Queen) associated with Reciprocal Reading. Ask your child which is their favourite role and why.
