Home Learning Support for Pupils and Parents

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.

Our topic this half term is:

Second World War

We will be learning all about The Second World War and its impact on children. We will look at:

  • The Outbreak of War
  • Rationing
  • The Blitz
  • Evacuation
  • Propaganda Posters and their message
  • The role of N. Ireland.
  • The Role of Women in the War Effort.

Planting Our Orchard

We are extremely privileged to have been part of an NIE Tree Planting Project along with the Conservation Volunteers. As part of this project, pupils from Primary 6 and Primary 7 worked with Mrs Rea, Neville and Olga from Conservation Volunteers and a representative from NIE to plant apple, pear, damson, plum and cooking apple trees in the school grounds to make our own orchard. The project was fully funded by NIE and we are looking forward to the fruits of our labour.

Cranmore News Edition 1

Cranmore News Edition 2

Writer in Residence

This term we have been working with Shelley Tracey, a local poet. We began by working on poetry. We learned about lots of different poetic techniques and explored poems by lots of different children's poets. We have written many of our own poems. We read 'Ark' by Simon Armitage, poet Laureate for 2019 and wrote our own class poem response. We called it 'Refresh the World.' We have created our own display to illustrate the poem and we have made it into a performance poem.

 

 

 

Uberheroes

In P7 we are always extremely busy but we know it is important to look after our own health and well-being. We have had the pleasure to work together with Uberheroes to raise awareness on mental health and spread the word. It is as important to look after your mental health as it is to do after your physical health.

Cinemagic Special Effects

Who hasn't ever dreamed of becoming a Hollywood star? But would it be the same without those amazing special effects and make up artists? No. That's why we brought a bit of that magic to our class and look at the results. Can you even guess who is behind the "masks"?

                   Life Exhibition (Bethany Church)

 

One of the many perks of being in P7 is the outside learning visits. In this one we went to Bethany Church to visit our friends and their Life Exhibition.

                                     Pupil Council

We have finally chosen our student council for this year and it will be amazing. After a tough election we chose these two amazing representatives.
