    P6 Miss Mc Nicholl 

Hello and welcome to P6 Miss Mc Nicholl's class section of the Holy Rosary website. We have had a great first term in our class with so much happening each month. We have enjoyed learning about The Irish Famine and Water in our World Around Us lessons this term.

We have explored life as a Famine child by writing a diary from the viewpoint of a child in a Famine Workhouse and completed independent research to make our own presentations on the Famine using ICT. 

World Around Us/Literacy/ICT

Our class have really enjoyed doing 'Learning Logs' for homework and have produced some amazing work through a variety of ways to showcase our learning on The Famine.


In class we have been working really hard in Numeracy in all of our new topics. We have enjoyed taking part in practical learning opportunities using Sphero robots and weights and have developed our mental maths skills through fun games on iPads using Active Learn Primary, where pupils can earn points and rewards for their successes in learning.


Guided Reading takes place every mornings. Pupils can access a wider range of books from our class library and have acccess to thousands of books online through AR Epic, Oxford Owl and Collins from home for free- all pupils have been given logins and should contact Mr Sinclair if they have problems logging in.


In Religion we have been learning about the parables of Jesus, Advent and the Christmas story. We also use Religion time to give pupils the chance to share their different cultural and faith experiences with the class. 

Rights Respecting School & Awards

In our class we have been learning about children's rights and what we can do to make sure everyone gets the rights they deserve. In our class we have a ' Star of the Day', a 'Star of the Week' and a 'Star of the Month', to reward positive behaviour.  We have monthly Key Stage assembly awards which recognize consistent progress and effort in all areas. Congratulations to all our winners so far!
