April News

Pupils were surprised to see the growing progress of their plant when they came back from the Easter holidays.  Not all of their growing efforts did as well, but they have learned about the best growing conditions for seeds through the failures and successes!
 

Also pictured are some of the boys who were happy to get the chance to do some measuring in their Maths and Numeracy work recently as part of handling data.

The season for growing things has arrived at BICS.  Both Sunbeams and Primary Pupils have been doing some planting, uncovering their gardening skills!  Primary scientists have been investigating the best conditions for cress to grow in the classroom, while GCSE Biology student Mark has been completing his Controlled Assessment on the subject of Water Loss in Plants.


Pupils have also been preparing singing and recitations for the Gospel Musical Evening on 1st April at Hamilton Road Community Hub, when they will be taking part along with some well known Gospel Singers.

Traffic Survey

Some Key Stage One and Two pupils took part in a traffic survey recently as part of an ICT task.  Pupils made use of our new School entrance and ICT room to count the many vehicles that passed by on the Clandeboye and Rathgael Roads.  They then went on to graph their results and create a worksheet for someone else to fill in.

The Tabernacle

Pupils and Staff at BICS have been getting back into the routines of life in the classroom!  Everyone has been enjoying getting to know the new P1s: Ruby, Julia, Amber and Hannah.  The girls have been settling in well and are making good progress in learning letters and sounds.
Hannah is pictured helping some of the older pupils to measure the dimensions of the brazen altar as part of their Scripture project, while Ruby, Ethan and Faith examine a model of the Tabernacle.  Throughout the next few months we will be learning about the uses and spiritual significance of the various items both inside and outside the Tabernacle.
