Primary 6

Trade Fair

P6 would like to thank Downshire Primary School for hosting  a Trade Fair in conjunction with 'Our World' Programme.  The children worked for a number of weeks with sixth year students participating in the Young Enterprise Scheme.  The children learned about importing and exporting and how countries need each other to trade with.  Children were able to learn

The Water Bus

A much overdue update of the visit of the Water Bus.  Children in key stage 2 were able to take part in lessons on The Water Bus.  Linking with our new Eco-schools topic the children were able to learn about water and how we use it, waste it and how we can use it most efficiently.  T

Litter Less

The whole school have been working hard to litter less.  We are participating in the 'Wrigley's Litter Less Campaign' until December and we have been able to see our hard work pay off.  Primary 4-7 have been taking it in turns to litter pick, providing the weather is good.  We have been collecting litter, counting the number of bags filled and weighing them. 

Stand by Me
