Lest We Forget

Miss Jack's Year 5 class led our Remembrance Assembly on Friday 10th November. We were also joined by Mr Burke from the Royal British Legion.

The West End comes to Castlederg

Meet some of the cast from Year 5 in our show


Survey of Castlederg ...  We went for a walk around 'Our Wee Town' and completed a survey of all the services.

Culture Quarter...  We had a visitor from the Culture Quarter, she talked to us about our identity and that we are all different but very important!  We had fun making the muddled up faces.

3D Models...  We loved making 3D models using the shapes.

Bird Watch - We took part in the RSPB Bird Watch 2018.  In the school grounds the most birds we saw were crows!  We also saw a few sparrows, black birds and a great tit.  We enjoyed going to the Pet Store to see the birds and other pets and we enjoyed looking at all the birds nests.

We read Year 3 their favourite story....

Miss Jack's class read stories to Year 2...

We carried out three Science investigations about our class novel - Charlotte's Web.


We had to find out why spiders don't stick to their web, how they can eat flies and how do spiders know if it is a fly or a predator disturbing their web!


We had great fun Image result for smiley face

Take a look at our fabulous farm projects...


Year 5 enjoyed taking part in a STEM lesson, where Joanne from 'Sentinus' taught us how to program robots and make them move in different directions.
