J6 have been learning lots about Winter and loved playing outside in the snow although it was very cold! We have made snowflakes, penguins and snowmen for our winter display board. Our new topic, pirates is very exciting! We have a big pirate ship in our classroom and have enjoyed dressing up and searching for treasure. We love playing with the pirate ship in our water tray and sometimes make the pirates walk the plank! We have been reading lots of pirate stories and singing lots of pirate songs. We are really looking forward to going on a real treasure hunt around our school!

J6 is class made up of primary two and primary three pupils. We have eight pupils in J6, five boys and three girls. We begin each morning with a play based approach to learning in all areas of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. We have lots of energy in J6 and like to be very active so throughout the day we make use of the different environments in school including outdoors, soft play, sensory and lights rooms. We are working hard on developing our social and communication skills such as listening, taking turns, sharing and making requests. We enjoy educational outings within the local area where we can use these skills in an environment outside of school. Most of all we have lots of fun!
