P6/7 Mrs Gill

Welcome to P6/7!

Year 6/7 have been planning their new topic “Ourselves” since starting back this term. They have enjoyed drawing their self-portraits, trying to include all the distinguishing features which make them all uniquely wonderful! What a gorgeous and creative bunch! 


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas🎄


Year 6/7 loved painting snowflakes ❄️ and snowmen ⛄️ for their Christmas trees this morning. Thanks to the PTA for providing this lovely Christmas treat for the children and to the staff from Colours Paint Your Own Pottery Studio, Ballynahinch, for helping the pupils create their decorations. 🎨


Year 6/7 loved doing their Daily Mile in their festive favourites today! They jingled…and chattered….all the way around the streets of Crossgar!

Year 6/7 learnt some new skills in a Art today as they got out the needles and thread to get creative!


Anti-Bullying Week 2021

The Year 6/7 pupils have been drawing on their creative skills this week to develop a new action hero to combat bullying in schools. They presented their ideas to the class this afternoon and they were super-impressive! Ideas for superpowers ranged from freezing the bully before they hurt someone, to zapping them to allow the bully to experience what the other person would feel and teleporting the bully straight to the principal‘s office!

Brilliant work Year 6/7!

Year 6/7 had a great day out at the Down County Museum. They enjoyed seeing lots of items from World War 2 and got to ask the experts some of their unanswered questions linked to our topic. Thanks to the museum staff for an enjoyable visit


Maths Week Ireland 2021

This week Year 6/7 ‘blethered’ about how useful Maths is in many jobs and professions, created some amazing symmetry art pictures, played some fun Maths games with their friends….as well as exploring 2D shapes in their daily Numeracy activities! It’s been a busy week!

Year 6/7 ended the term with a smile today! Thanks to the PTA for organising such a fun-filled day for us all! Happy half-term from Year 6/7! 


Pumpkins and scarecrows were on display today as the Year 6/7 brought their wonderful creations to add to the PTA’s display! #smallschoolbigheart #autumn

Year 6/7 are enjoying their topic, World War 2. They have been learning what life was like as an evacuee, considering how they’d have had to adapt their diet during rationing and creating super propaganda posters over the past few weeks!




After a busy morning working hard in the classroom, Year 6/7 were excited to dust off their hockey sticks for PE this afternoon. Great fun was had by new players and experienced players alike!


Year 6/7 have started the new school year with lots of smiles!

They’ve been ’blethering’ about their hopes and concerns about the school this year and having fun in the playground with their friends!


The Seed Stop, our Young Enterprise business, is now closed. We have sold a staggering 230 sunflower-growing kits and made a profit to buy some end-of-term treats after all our hard work. Thank you to everyone who supported our business and we hope you enjoy planting and watching your sunflower grow.
