This week Primary 5 have been learning about “The Celts,” with help from Una Walsh. They completed art work that they hung this morning on the May Tree outside the Community Centre. This is to highlight the Celtic “Bealtaine” season that starts tomorrow, 1st May.
We would like to thank Una for her time this morning and the online collab on Wednesday where she spoke to the children about Celtic history, particularly in South Armagh. The children learnt so much about the history of this unique area from her and they can’t wait to visit Mullaghbawn’s very own Celtic Roundhouse at Bluebell Glamping when it opens back up.
Our Primary 5 children were so lucky to get an opportunity to take part in a virtual art lesson with Sinead Campbell from, “The Art and Design Factory Online Art Classes for Kids.”
It was such an enjoyable hour for both pupils and teachers alike and a fantastic opportunity to showcase the children’s artistic skills. They were so proud of their work and upon looking at these finished pieces, I am sure you will agree that we have future artists here at St Mary’s PS!
The boys and girls in Primary 5 have been very busy during the month of December working on their Christmas poem. Unfortunately, this year we did not get to perform our Nativity in the chapel like we normally do. Everyone looks forward to it each year but hopefully this little production can make up for it in some way. I am so proud of their efforts and I am sure you will be too!
Merry Christmas and a happy new year from all 29 boys and girls and myself. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays.
Congratulations to all the boys and girls in P5 who have been producing excellent work, not just in May, but every month. This is just a small fraction of the wonderful work I have had the privilege of seeing and I thought it was too good not to share. Such dedication and talent within this class. Keep up all your hard efforts, P5!
The P5s attended a trip on Monday to learn more about our World Around Us topic, the Ancient Egyptians. They got to speak to Egyptians, make jewellery and they even mummified one of their classmates. A great day all round!
All of Primary 5 went to Belfast last Wednesday to visit W5. The children got to take part in a forensic workshop, the “climbit” frame and we visited all the different floors. Everyone had a brilliant day!
