Primary 6 - Mr mCcollum

Welcome to Mr McCollum's Primary 6 class!

Whenever you enter Classroom 8, you're entering a room where you become writers and journalists, mathematicians and data analysts, scientists and computer programmers, illustrators and musicians. You become a teammate, a friend, a teacher to others, a motivator and an achiever.

We can't wait to share our year in Primary 6 with you on this class page, we hope you learn a lot and enjoy seeing how we progress. Remember, 'learning is not a spectator sport', so let's get stuck in!

Santa Silhouette Artwork

The boys and girls of P.6 have been creating a silhouette skyline for Santa to fly across. We are delighted with the creative approach the class have used and the very effective twinkling lights in each building. Can you spot Santa and his Sleigh on our display board?

Christmas Jumper and Christmas Dinner Day
We’ve enjoyed a fabulous Christmas Jumper and Dinner day. It’s been a very festive day in school and the P.6s have enjoyed plenty of fun. 

Swimming Badge Presentation
Well done to the P.6 class who today completed their series of swimming lessons and each received a badge for their efforts.

The swimming teachers commended them on their efforts and work during the Term and also said their behaviour and attitude was first-class. Bravo Primary 6!

Studying the Time

‘What’s the time Primary 6?’ - a busy morning as our P.6 class started their work on the topic of Time.

It can be tricky to master the hour and minute hand on the clock face but they certainly have made great strides in their learning today.

Cricket with the NCU

P.6 have enjoyed very busy and active sessions of getting to grips with cricket. A really fun introduction to the sport!

We are thankful for Wayne who will be running this coaching programme for the next few weeks during school.

Lantern Making in Primary 6

A superb day for Primary 6, we really enjoyed the workshop provided by Lisburn Council and the lanterns we have made will be a great addition to the upcoming parade in Hillsborough. The boys and girls loved it, so nice to see them getting their hands sticky and enjoying some creative time.

STEM Workshop in Primary 6
It was a fantastic experience for our P.6s to welcome Sentinus into school and take part in a STEM workshop on the theme of ‘Floating and Sinking’. A great day of interaction, investigation and learning.

Creating Disguises for 'Who Am I?'
Primary 6 have been up in the I.C.T Suite today spending time creating our disguises for an upcoming ‘Who Am I?’ task. Be prepared to see your children in a completely different way!

Titanic Topic - Planning Session
Primary 6 have embarked on our new topic for this Term, the Titanic. Today we set sail as we considered two things, what we already knew about the famous ship and a few questions of what we would like to find out. We’re all set for an exciting learning journey together!

P.6 ‘Summer Selfies’

We had a blast showing off our photos and thinking back to some great memories from the summer. I’m sure you’ll agree the posters look amazing, well done Primary 6!

Physical Education in Primary 6
P.E involved our class beginning to think about games and ball skills. A big focus on coordination and movement today as we were using bean bags to throw, catch and travel with. A very active session!

'Friday Fun on our First Week Back'
On Friday 27th August we finished off the week by enjoying some ‘Friday Fun’ as the pupils enjoyed some time together working on some interactive games and challenges.

This was a great social opportunity for us and nice to see the children enjoying this time and building relationships ahead of the year.
