Good morning parents and pupils, we find ourselves in very unfamiliar circumstances today and it will take us all time to adjust. We are here to support you as best we can. We understand that everyone's circumstances and approaches are different. We will be making suggestions on a daily basis of what learning your child could do but please note these are only suggestions. We will encourage your child to share some of what they are doing so we can celebrate their efforts and be there to answer any questions they may have. We know that many parents will be working from home or have more than one child to support so we are attempting to make learning for older children as independent as possible. Most importantly, take care of yourselves and each other.’

Houses and Homes

As part of our topic on Houses and Homes, we went on a survey to look at the different houses along Finaghy Road North. We used tally marks to record our work and then discussed the information we gathered when we got back to school. Most of the houses on Finaghy Road North are semi-detached or terraced. We also can describe where we live using lots of new vocabulary.
