Over the next 10 weeks P7H will be taking part in a very exciting project called SCLINGOSHORTS. This project will help the pupils to develop their understanding of French language and culture in a very interesting and unique way. The pupils will work on creating their own French animation and also designing a pupils friendly website which will help other pupils with their language learning.
On Friday, the pupils were joined by Rory, Miriam and Naomi for their first session. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed this session where they worked on sound and recording with Rory, animation with Miriam and experienced story telling with Naomi. The pupils also worked to evaluate an existing language website to help them to generate ideas for their own webpage.
They are already very excited for the next session.
The pupils in P7H are thoroughly enjoying their new topic on WW2. We have already learned about The Road to War and Evacuation. We have been using the i-pads to carry out research and have worked in groups to use what we have learned to create informative displays around the school.
The class also experienced their first Air Raid this afternoon
As part of STEM week, the pupils in P7H worked in groups to create their very own lava lamps. We conducted the experiment using water, oil, food colouring and Berocca tablets. We worked through the experiment in stages and also learned about the density of different liquids. It was very interesting and also lots of fun.
The pupils in P7H are already hard at work and relishing the responsibilities that come with being senior pupils.
Here they are taking part in a music lesson with our music specialist, Miss White. The pupils were challenged to create music using simple objects they were able to find around the classroom. Some groups were very creative and made some fantastic sounds.
The P7 pupils at St Mary’s have worked closely with Dr Higgins to raise funds for the Let Us Shine school in Ghana. The funds were used to buy much needed resources for the school, such as mattresses, benches, mosquito nets, pin boards where the girls can display their work and food bowls for the dining room.
For the past few years, St Mary’s have sponsored a girl named Clara to enable her to go to school. This year, St Patrick’s, St Margaret’s and Our Lady’s schools have also sponsored children. You can see all of the girls the schools have sponsored below.
