Mrs Johnston

Its hard to believe that we are moving into the final few weeks of Term 1.  We have been very busy in Primary 5 & 6. 

We are really enjoying our 'Shared Education' Project with St Joseph's Primary.  The Linen industry was very important in County Armagh and especially in and around Keady.  We have been learning about the story of Linen from field to factory.  Over the last few weeks of term before Christmas we are going to be learning all about William Kirk and the mills he set up along the Callen River.


We are all working really hard at our Christmas play 'Bah Hum Bug'.  We cant wait for everyone to see it on Wednesday 5th December.



Keep an eye on our page for all the photographs!






This half term we have had the pleasure of Mrs Jeanie Graham coming into our class every Friday.  These PDMU lessons have been great fun and very informative.  We have learnt a lot about the dangers of Alcohol, Drugs and Smoking. We have also learnt about peer pressure and the importance of keeping our bodies safe.

Shared Education Session 2


Today we had our second Shared Education session with St Joseph's.  It was all about 'Conditions for Growth'.  We carried out a science experiment. We planted flax seeds in 3 different pots, one which will get soil, water and sunlight, another that will only get soil and water and another that will get sunlight, soil but no water.  We want to see what conditions are needed for growth.  We will watch eagerly over the next few weeks to see what appears.

Sweetie Place Value


We have been learning about Place Value in Numbers.  We know all about Tens of Thousands, Thousands, Hundreds, Tens, Units and Tenths.

To make our learning fun and memorable we used midget gems.  We each lifted a handful of sweets and each colour represented a different value. 

We loved working out the value and the number we created with our sweets. 


Afterwards we loved eating the sweets!
