P6 - Mr. J Lagan

Welcome to Primary 6

My name is Mr Lagan and I am new to the school family here in St. Oliver Plunkett Primary School. Our classroom assistants this year are Mrs Furey and Mrs Harding. We are blessed to have 22 incredibly talented and respectful children in our class.

In P6, children will have the opportunity to work together and independently on many activities linked to the NI Curriculum. Children will develop many thinking skills and personal capabilities which they will be able to use both inside and outside of school.    

This term in Literacy, P6 will be reading ‘The Titanic Detective Agency‘. Children will complete writing and comprehension linked to our class novel. They will also be exploring a variety of grammar, punctuation and spelling including synonyms/antonyms, using of commas to separate independent clauses, and exploring a selection of prefixes/suffixes.

In Numeracy this term, P6 will be looking at Place Value, Fractions, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division as well as 2D and 3D Shape.

The term 1 topic for P6 is called Unsinkable, which is all about the Titanic setting sail on its maiden voyage and the disaster that ensued.

Primary 6 will have two PE sessions this term with one of those being swimming lessons. Swimming lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and the other school based PE lesson will be on a Thursday afternoon.

Each evening children will have Literacy, Numeracy, Spellings, Times Tables, Mathletics and AR tasks to complete. Homework should be returned to school every day to be marked. Weekly homework outlines will be shared on Google Classroom. This platform will also be used as a link between the classroom and home. If you are unable to access this, then please contact the school as it will be important for information from school to be shared. 

We look forward to an exciting year ahead.
