Victorians Day in P7 and Anti-Bullying Week
On Friday the P7s were transported back in time to the Victorian period. This provided the children with the opportunity to put their learning into a real time situation. They experienced activities such as Victorian maths and handwriting, drill and traditional playground games. Our P7s thoroughly enjoyed dressing up for the day and this certainly added to the event. A victorious Victorian day!
Last week was also Anti-bullying Week across Northern Ireland and we held two special assemblies explaining to the children how to recognise bullying and all the different ways they can get help. Each class also ran an anti-bullying workshop and we have a whole school anti-bullying display board to help deliver important anti-bullying messages.

Shared Education in Action
For the last few years we have been running a Shared Education project with our partner school St. Mary's (also in Newcastle). This week the P3s came together to continue their work exploring our local environment with the support of the Forestry Service. After a workshop at Castlewellan Forest the classes came together again in the afternoon to explore what they had found out. We are so fortunate to have fabulous forests, beaches and mountains to help our pupils develop key science and geography skills as well as a deeper appreciation of the world around them.

Write Your Wishes on Stone Event
Last week the whole school took part in a ' Write Your Wishes on Stone Event.' This marked the end of our Global Learning Programme 'World’s Largest Lesson' and aimed to raise awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Each child represented their wish for a fairer future for all, on a stone which they then painted. Finally all the stones were brought together to make a large piece of ‘Nature Art' which is currently on display at the front of the school.

At All Children's IPS we love to reward good effort and good work and each fortnight we gather one piece of work from each class for our WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) display board. The photograph shows some of our WAGOLL award winners last week together with a beautiful piece of art one of our P5s made. We are also busy getting ready for Halloween and the P7s have enjoyed preparing what they will be carrying during this year's HallowTides parade in Newcastle.

Thank you as well to everyone who came along last night to our Linguistic Phonics Workshop with Paula Quinn to find out all about how we teach spellings and reading in the school.
