Straidbilly Primary School, Liscolman, Ballymoney


Welcome to Primary Seven. Our teachers are Mrs Vandevyver and Mr George 


During Term One our learning focuses on: 


Place Value (Numbers to 1 million, including decimal numbers up to two decimal places), 

Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division and using our understanding of these operations in problem solving scenarios,

Area and Perimeter



In term one we unpack the non-fiction literary genre of explanation writing.

We explore the structure that persuasive writing takes and learn more sophisticated grammar and punctuation which we can use to uplevel and improve our writing.

We are thoroughly enjoying reading "The Good Thieves" by Catherine Rundell together as a class.  Vita, the main character, is engaged in a desperate battle with Victor Sorrotorre (the baddie) to get back what rightfully belongs to her Grandpa.

The World Around Us:

Through science, technology, geography, history, music, art and drama we are exploring the topic of "Northern Ireland" this term.


During Term Two our learning focuses on: 


Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.



During term two, we unpack the literary genre of narrative writing by looking at the wide variety of writing styles that fall under the category of ‘narrative’. 

We look at narrative poetry (poetry that tells a story), folk tales, fairy tales, fables and playscripts. 

We write our own stories and enjoy sharing them with younger pupils in school. 

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s “Revolting Rhymes”, we have great fun changing the endings of traditional tales to make our own version of some of the classics. 

Throughout our activities we are exploring the writing techniques which make stories interesting and appealing and have looked at personification, similes and metaphors, onomatopoeia and a variety of different ways to hook the reader's interest.  It is our aim to use all these techniques in our own writing.
