P6M worked very hard to prepare a class debate. We researched all the people who played a part in the Titanic disaster and decided who we thought was to blame. We then prepared opening speeches, discussed balanced arguments and finally organised closing speeches.
After our debates we voted and Bruce Ismay was the person we decided was to blame with Thomas Andrews second.
On Wednesday morning P5, P6 and P7 children were offered the opportunity to take part in a Cardio to Music exercise class that I ran in school from 8.30 until 9.00. The feedback was very positive and I look forward to seeing how many children will join us this Wednesday. These 2 taster sessions will determine if I shall continue this style of class after the Easter Holidays. Why not try it out?
We have been learning the meaning and use of improvised Drama in class. The children are put on the spot in the role of a character in a variety of different scenarios whilst the audience watch the story unfold.
This week, we used our topic, the Titanjc as our stimulus and we watched very harrowing situations as characters boarded lifeboats.
P6M and Miss McCabe would like to thank everyone for their generosity donating books to make our World Book Day fundraiser so successful. An immense 1437 books were donated and an even more whopping £490 was raised over the 2 day event.
This event showed the true meaning of world book day as we shared reading and books around the world, all the way over to Ghana.
A massive well done to the boys and girls in P6 for their hard work in putting the entire event together.
Congratulations again to all who participated in the races on Tuesday 6th February.
