We would like to welcome you to this thrilling and dynamic year where the children are offered an abundance of challenges and experiences, enabling them to use and apply their knowledge and skills. Here in primary six we help mould assertive, creative and competitive young individuals ready for the world ahead.

Below is some of the fun learning your child will be engaged in:

Autumn Term Topics

· Literacy

‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo


· Numeracy

Number: Place Value, Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division


Measurement: Perimeter & Area


· World Around Us


People and Planet: Shaping our Future, The Climate Challenge


· P.E.

 On Tuesday the children have Gaelic Football coaching from the Ulster GAA.

Swimming lessons are on a Tuesday and cost £3.50 per session.

On Friday the children receive football coaching from the Ryan Mc Bride Foundation.


Each evening your child will have Literacy, Numeracy, Spellings, Tables and Accelerated Reading (AR) tasks to complete in their workbooks. These books must be returned to school every day to be marked. We will continue to use Google Classroom this year as a link between the classroom and home. I would encourage that the children aim to collect 1,000 points in Mathletics every week to achieve a bronze certificate. Below are the links to both

· AR and · Mathletics

The children’s passwords can be found in front of their homework book.

We look forward to an exciting year ahead.
