Bee Safe 

P7 travelled to Brownstown Community Centre on Monday 12th March to attend the Bee Safe programme. Bee Safe is an imaginative way of teaching Primary 7 pupils how to prevent everyday accidents and dangerous situations and how to deal with them safely and effectively should they occur. 
Children moved around a number of accident themed scenarios in small groups during the morning sessions. 
The initiative was delivered by agencies including the PSNI, Northern Ireland Electricity, Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council, NI Fire and Rescue Service and NIE. 

P7 visited Tayto Castle on Monday 5th March 2018 as part of their WAU/Connected Learning topic. Our guide, Jill, wash great fun and very informative. The pupils saw the whole process of crisp making from the arrival of the potatoes into the warehouse to the dispatch of the pallets of crisps ready to go to the stores. The pupils were especially pleased with all of the free crisps they received. A special appearance was made by Mr. Tayto who kindly posed for photographs. 

Andy White Tesco Craigavon’s Community Champion visited the P7 classroom on Monday 19th February. Andy gave a very interesting talk on healthy eating and focused on the calories contained in many of the popular foods eaten by the class. Andy also looked at the salt and sugar content of foods consumed as part of the three main meals of the day.

Mr Clyde and Mrs Courtney accompanied the P7 class to the Navan Centre in Armagh last Thursday to learn more about their World Around Us topic of The Vikings. Pupils got the opportunity to find out about Viking weaponry and Viking homes, dress up as monks and write using quill and ink and investigate Viking jewellery. The pupils really enjoyed themselves and thought the actors were even scarier than Mr Clyde!
