Hi there & welcome to the P6 class page.

In the P6 classroom you will find us working hard but having fun as we learn new and exciting things each day. Our first topic - Eco Warriors, takes us on a journey of discovery through the tropical rainforests of the equatorial zone. We will embrace life in the rainforest as we learn about the animals, plants and people who live there. Whilst at the same time, we can appreciate our individual responsibility to contribute to the conservation of the environment as we consider bigger global issues.  Later in the year we make an exploration into the wonders of space and our solar system. In the Spring, the class will be getting into role as Viking Warriors as part of their Invaders topic. They will be given the opportunities to study the Vikings at Home, Vikings as Warriors, Vikings as Explorers & Settlers and searching for evidence of their visits and settlements along the Ards Peninsula. 

Alongside the art, dance and music there will be themed days, trips and outings, and of course - always lots of numeracy! This year P6 are 'Going for Gold' and striving to do themselves proud across the curriculum - and everyone in our classroom is aiming to do just that! Let the learning commence.

Keep an eye on this page as I will be updating it with photographs to share our achievements and experiences.

Enjoy learning about P6 Portavogie. It really is as good as it sounds!
