A goodbye message from Mrs Somerville.
Hi P6 and P7,
I hope you are all keeping well. As we would have been looking at the topic of ‘moving on’ in PDMU had we been at school, below are some worksheets which you should enjoy completing. They look at the topics of peer pressure, personal qualities, respect and bullying.
Also, on the BBC Bitesize website you will find a series of 5 lessons on the transition to secondary school. Go to the Primary section, then to the Northern Ireland section, choose KS2 and then select PDMU, or click here These are short and fun to watch. There are other topics within the PDMU section which you may also find interesting.

Our Trip to Greenhill
P6 and P7 went to Greenhill for a residential visit. We took part in some outdoor activities and enjoyed staying overnight with our friends. Most of us enjoyed the shallow-water bouldering the best. Click on the photo for more pictures.
P6 and P7 did an experiment to see how smoking one cigarette would affect the lungs. A cigarette was attached to the top of a plastic bottle. When the bottle was squeezed it acted like breathing. Cotton wool inside the bottle acted like the lungs. At the end of the experiment we could see that the tar from the cigarette had made the cotton wool turn yellow. Tar from a cigarette would collect in the lungs in the same way. We really didn’t like the smell! Click on the photo for more pictures.
Deaf Awareness Workshop
P5, 6 and 7 had a ‘Deaf Awareness’ workshop when they learned about some of the the causes of deafness and ways in which people deal with hearing loss.
World Book Day
We dressed up as a character from a favourite book. Can you tell who is who?
