Year 7 Classes

Welcome To P7!

Mrs D Graham - Primary 7

Welcome to P7!

As the oldest in the school we have lots to look forward to in our final year at Damhead.

In Primary 7 we study topics World War Two, Natural Disasters and Titanic.

We also work hard on Literacy and Numeracy and integrate ICT and outdoor learning when we can.

We also go swimming in P7 in term two, enjoy a residential trip later in the year and work hard to put on a show in the Spring term to entertain you all.

A highlight of our year is pairing up with our P1 buddies and helping them throughout their first year of school.

Watch out for us here, on Seesaw and on the school’s Facebook page for update on what we are getting up to.

Term 3 in P7!

We have had a wonderful year in P7 so far. It is hard to believe that we are in our final term already and of course the final term of primary school for the P7 children. This term has started on a high with a very successful residential trip to Ballyhome.

Although not far from school and home we had a fantastic time exploring our local community and taking part in many new and adventurous activities. Through the trip we aim to make the children as independent as possible. They were responsible for making breakfast, lunch, tidying up after themselves, washing dishes, keeping their dorms tidy and making their own beds. We awarded points throughout our trip for good behaviour and showing kindness and independence.

The first day of our trip was spent orienteering around Downhill Forest and exploring Mussenden Temple and the surrounding area. That evening was spent crab fishing in Portballintrae. The next day we canoed up the River Bann followed by team games and smores on the beach. The third day was spent at Balllintoy Harbour and coasteering at Dunseverick Castle. Our trip ended with a visit to Lislagan Farm in Ballymoney. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and finished with a BBQ before heading home for a well earned rest.

It was amazing to watch the children achieve and develop skills in areas outside of our school setting and curriculum. The range of activities gave all children a chance to shine and I thoroughly enjoyed watching each child’s confidence grow as they challenged themselves further than they ever thought possible.


P7 will continue to work hard this term with a continued focus on problem solving. Our World Around Us topic is ‘Titanic’ and through this we will be learning about the great ship as well as the science behind its creation and destruction.

We will end the term with our Leavers’ Day celebration where we say goodbye to our wonderful P7 class.

We have a busy but very exciting term ahead.
