Year 7 Tollymore – Group 2 – Day 1 & 2

Year 7 Tollymore – Group 1 – Day 2

Year 7 Tollymore – Group 1 – Day 1

 The children of Group 1 have had a fantastic day 1 of their Tollymore trip. They arrived in Tollymore at before lunch and spent the afternoon, in groups:  hillwalking, paddleboarding, wet bouldering and rock climbing. They have had a super start to their trip! Have a look at some of the photos below.

World Maths Day

World Maths Day was a great opportunity for us to practise our mental maths skills on Mathletics. We enjoyed competing against each other and with children around the world!

Science week

As part of our ‘Flight’ topic, we created parachutes. We investigated how the size of the parachute impacts on the time taken to land. Conducting the science experiment and working as part of a team was great fun!

Natural Disasters

Our new topic in Year 7 is Natural Disasters. We have been learning about volcanoes, bush fires and hurricanes.

Through Drama and PDMU, we have imagined how we would feel and what we would think if we experienced a hurricane. It was interesting to put ourselves in the shoes of others and empathise with how they would feel.

As part of our Literacy, we are writing reports about natural disasters. We particularly enjoyed working in small groups to write report about the Australian bush fires where we focused on the impact of the bush fires on the local people and the environment, but also how the emergency services responded.

Natural Disasters is a fascinating topic!

Halloween Dress up Day

Irish Cottages

Marita Conlon-McKenna describes the cottages during the time of the Irish Potato Famine in her novel ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’. She reveals to us what the cottages were like and how people lived in the 1800s.

We have painted pictures of cottages in the beautiful countryside of Ireland and also have created our own 3D cottages.

It has been very interesting learning about life during this sad time in Ireland’s history.

IFA Coaching

The pupils in Year 7 really enjoyed having the opportunity in PE to experience a variety of different team sports as part of the IFA programme delivered by Judith in this term.
