In the Primary 7 we are the oldest children in the school. We are responsible for the running of the school's “Buddy Club” by helping to organise games for the younger children in the playground during break time. This ensures that all pupils have someone to play with.
We also take responsibility for the school library. We’ve learnt about the Dewey System and have a library rota- this means we are in charge of keeping the library tidy! In English we thoroughly enjoy Narrative Writing and are working on editing our pieces of writing on the computer. It’s great having so many computers and laptops in school. Our whole class can have an individual computer to complete our work on.
Our World Around Us topics are, “Thinking Through the Past”, “Bridges” and “In The News”. Included in each of these are elements of science, history and geography. We go to view the bridges in Belfast and complete a range of science experiments linked to the 'Unsinkable' Titanic.
We’re a very creative class and really enjoy art lessons. Zentangle is our latest craze. You might say, “What is Zentangle?” Well, it’s an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

In the third term we go on a residential to Killyleagh Outdoor Education Centre. We have great opportunities to complete activities such as bouldering and kayaking. After Easter we also complete first aid classes and are trained in life saving first aid essentials like how to treat a bleeding casualty and use CPR!
In our “Money Wise” topic we run a shop for a day. We buy in produce and sell it to pupils throughout the school hoping to make a small profit.
Throughout the year we visit as many local secondary level schools as we can. Our P7 children go on to schools far and wide. Recently they have moved on to Glastry College, Our Lady and St. Patrick's College, Regent House, Glenlola Collegiate, St. Columba's College, Bangor Grammar, Bloomfield Collegiate, Victoria College and Strathearn College.
