'Kreative Kids' - Young Enterprise

 
 
 
 

Our class have been working with the charity Young Enterprise. Young Enterprise is a charity which gives children experience in setting up and running a business. We have created a company named ‘Kreative Kids’ and have been working on our very own project for months. We have designed and made our own coasters which we will be selling for £1.50 at our Summer Fair on Friday 21st of June. The fair will be from 1- 2:30pm. 10% of the profit will be given back to Young Enterprise. Please come along, we would love to see you there!

Many thanks,

Tameece McKelvey (P7 pupil)– Sales Team

 

Using ICT in topic work

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

P6/7 were working in pairs using iPads to help them to plan a PowerPoint presentation on their Rainforests topic. They worked together to plan each slide and research facts that they could add to their presentation. The pupils then worked in their pairs to create their own presentation on the Rainforests which they then were able to present to the class.

 

Rainforests

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

P6/7 are learning about the rainforests this term. As a class they painted their own rainforest to help them to learn about the different layers in the rainforest. The pupils have started to research different animals in the rainforest using the iPads.

 

Young Enterprise

P6/7 have the exciting opportunity of being involved in "Young Enterprise" this year. As part of this programme the pupils have to plan and run their own business. The pupils have been working so hard on their business and they have learnt so much about running a business. To raise money for starting their business the pupils have made bracelets which they have sold in school. The pupils have made £67.50 which they are going to be able to use to start their own business. You will hear lots more about their business in the next few weeks.

 

Cultural Diversity

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

P5/6/7 had the fantastic opportunity to take part in a cultural diversity workshop. At this workshop they explored the diversity around Ballymena. The pupils learnt a lot about different cultures and reasons why people might choose to live in different countries. The pupils then got involved in a Chinese dance lesson where they learnt a number of different Chinese dances. They got to use great props including Chinese fans. Take a look at the pictures and the video below to see the pupils in action!

Drama in P6/7

 
 
 
 

P6/7 have been reading the novel 'Under the Hawthorne Tree' as part of their Irish Famine topic. They were able to act out different scenes typical during the Irish Famine. The pupils then created a freeze frame for the class and they asked them questions which they had to reply in character. The pupils really enjoyed this task and got really into their characters.

 

Problem Solving in P6/7

 
 
 
 
 

P6/7 have been working in class on solving word problems. They have been able to use a number of different strategies to help them to solve these problems. The pupils are using strategies and techniques that are recorded in their maths fact books which will be sent home to help them to learn mathematical strategies and maths facts to help them with their Numeracy.
