From 24th Feb - 6th March, we are taking part in the Ards & North Down Council ‘Engine Off, Prevent the Cough’ initiative. We will be trying to encourage car users around our school grounds to turn their engines off when waiting so that the air is cleaner!

Thank you to the Lyric Theatre Eco Project team who put on an outstanding performance for us. It taught us the importance of recycling and ways that we can help our environment!

We really enjoyed Bird Watching 🦅 🔭

Lauren from the One Project returned on Monday 11th November with some special guests.


The lovely ladies from Kilcooley Women's Centre told stories of outdoor toilets, black and white television programmes and giant mobile phones!


Matthew from the Ulster Scots Agency taught us about the Plantation of Ulster. We were scunnered to learn that lots of our wee words come from Scotland! We even sang some songs for the crack!


After a break of soda bread and potato farl, we met Fionnuala from Nic Thorn An Droichead who taught us about the Irish language. We looked at Irish books and learnt how to say the colours in Irish before having another singsong!


What an amazing end to our first topic in Y5 - OUR WORLD!
