Shared Education


Shared Education: Year 3

Castledawson PS and New Row PS are now entering our third year of joint learning and shared experiences.

We are very excited about what the year ahead holds, with more classes getting involved in activities specifically designed to improve the children’s educational experiences.

Term 1

Y4: Shared Numeracy & problem-solving project (8 joint lessons)

Y7: MUST project (Speedwell trust, beginning with a teambuilding day to Parkanaur)

Y6: Visit to Woodhall for outdoor activities

Term 2:

Y5: All Set programme including a shared music & drama performance

Y6 & 7: Preparation of shared choir to perform at Peace Proms, Odyssey Arena

Y7: Shared Literacy and topic work (Titanic) (8 joint lessons)

Term 3:

Y3: Shared Outdoor Play sessions (4 joint sessions)

Y6: Fun Sports Day

As an additional aspect to our joint work, the teachers of CPS & NRPS will be working together to extend the work begun last year around Online Safety. This is a great opportunity for staff to develop their skills and share good practice. Building positive professional relationships can only benefit our children – whilst having a positive impact on the community.

Watch out for more information in our newsletters, Facebook page and website.
