In N.Ireland we eat many different foods. There are five different food groups for example, protein, fats, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates. We eat crisps which you would call chips. We eat chocolate or as you would call it candy. We also drink lemonade which you would call it soda. My favourite dinner is a turkey dinner. If you want to stay healthy you should eat a balanced diet. What you eat now it affects your health in later life, so be wise in what you eat. In school we get different foods everyday. The dinner ladies cook meals everyday, but I prefer my big brother's food. I tease him by calling him Ainsley Harriot (Ainsley is a person who cooks on television show), because he is a good cook.

Changes in the New Year

This year is a time for changes.
P7's go to new secondary schools.
Meet new teachers.
Oh I wish things didn't have to change.

People waiting for results.
I am waiting for mine.
Will it be horrible or will it be fine. 
Oh I wish things didn't have to change.

If I pass I am going to Grosvenor.
If I don t I am going to Ashfield.
February is getting closer.
Oh I wish things didn't have to change.

I can t wait to meet my new teacher.
It's kind of scary starting high school.
Especially if you are getting bullied.
Oh I wish things didn't have to change.

I wonder what my results will be.
If I don't pass my dad will kill me.
Only joking he won't.
But things do have to change.

The Adventure Of Rocky Rambo

One wintry cold; cold morning Rambo was in the shower. Suddenly he heard someone cry his name, Rambo, Rambo it quietly chanted Rocky Rambo quietly leapt out of the shower and spun around really fast, soon he was in his super hero suit. He leapt out of the window. He flew around London. He put on his super shades and super boots. His shades saw nothing so decided to fly around the world. Finally he heard where the crying was coming from, It was coming from a women called Gitona she was crying because Shangsun was trying to take her soul. Rocky flew down but Shangsun disappeared and left Gitona lying on the ground. When Shangsun got back to his master the Emperor, the Emperor was furious Why didn't you take Gitona soul? the Emperor screamed You fool, he screamed again. Rocky asked who was hat, that was Shangsun Gitona replied Who is Shangsun, you see said Gitona A thousand years ago Shangsun and his army tried to take over the world but they couldn't so they made a deal, if Shangsun wins 10 straight victories in a tournament called Mortal Combat, Shangsun has already won 9 in a row. If he wins another one this will be handed over to the Emperor. Then Lui Kang and the rest of the team came, this is Lui Kang Gitona said and this is Raiden, Jack, Michael, Sonya Blade and Curtis Striker. They are all Raidens fighters. Next week the tournament begins; so they trained all week. Eventually the day of the tournament began. This island will be your battle ground, said Shangsun. Rocky was first, he was against Sheena the four monster. It was very close because Rocky was winning then Sheena was winning, but Rocky Rambo just used his laser beam eyes to win. Lui Kang was next he was against Sub zero . Lui Kang used his Dragon kick and knocked Subzero through the wall. It was Rocky and Lui Kang in the next round but neither would except the fight then Shangsun asked Rocky, would you challenge me in a fight, Rocky said yes, so they fought and fought , Rocky nearly got threw into the spikes, then Rocky saw his dead brother so Rocky choke slammed Shangsun into the spikes. They were all celebrating when the Emperor came and said You week minded fools I have come for your souls.

I wish that I could stay here
And be a macho man.

I,m going to a new school
The teachers aren't so pretty
The children are alright
The truth is the teachers are really witty.

I,m going to a new school
I haven't seen the playground
I've been in detention all the time
YEP I definitely seem to be on my way down.

WOW what a dream
I dreamt I went to a new school
I think I'll give that one a miss
The fact is it's still only January 5th

It was a cold and rainy night and Mammal Man was walking back to his mums house when he herd someone call for help. He immediately switched his rocket boots that helped him to fly faster and flew off. While he was flying he typed in a special code that told him where he had been called from. Mammal Man looked carefully saw that it was from the bank. When Mammal Man got there the thief had already got away. Mammal Man switched off his rocket boots and glided softly to the ground.''What why did the thief go,''said Mammal Man. The trembling bank man pointed North and said,''he went that way Mammal Man,''and then ran into the bank. Mammal Man spread his bat wings and said,''don't worry,''and took off. At first Mammal Man thought that it would be easy to find the thief because the safe had sprayed red ink on the money and it had dripped all over the road. but then suddenly the red ink just lead into a river. Mammal Man flew down and with his X-ray eyes he found out where the thief was. Then Mammal Man closed his eye's and changed them into laser eye's and the thieves bum got burnt.

Soccer In Our School

My name is Gary. I am eleven years old. My favourite hobby is football or as you would call it soccer. The teams which I support are Liverpool, Linfield and Rangers. I play soccer in school during lunch and break recess and we always get beaten by one of my friends team. I play for the Elmgrove school team and I play up front with my friend Paul and I score goals if I get a good pass.

We train every Tuesday afternoon from 3.00 pm - 4.30pm. In the summer we have a soccer tournament and the teams are made up of three boys and three girls. Our team last year were beaten in the final 2-0 by Paraguay, because they were P.7 pupils. We were England. This year I hope we will win the soccer tournament .


The Millennium

My last day at primary school until I go to my new school . I hope my new teacher is nice and a nice new school. It is a nice time in the year when you have to choose your school. And then you need to go and see what the school is like. Last day at school you are sad because you are leaving your friends but when you get into your new school you will meet new friends. Leaving primary school will be very sad. Elmgrove is a nice school with nice teachers. No one would like to leave Elmgrove because I would not like to leave. No one is frightened now but when I get to know people I will not be scared of my new school. It will be sad to leave your teacher. Until you leave to go to your new school we like to make some changes, we would like to have a happy ending at Elmgrove. My new school is going to be Ashfield boys...I hope.

The Adventure Of Dark Man

Once a upon a time there was a man called Dark Man and he lived in a straw house. I know lots about him like he has very good fighting moves and he is very scary.

He is a very good fighter and he can fly but he runs like a normal person sometimes fast and sometimes slow. At the minute he is chasing bad dies who the police are trying to catch. He always saves the day.

11+ Transfer Test

The eleven plus is a test that pupils aged ten or eleven take. Each year there are two eleven plus tests, both in November. The grades you can receive are A , B1 , B2 , C1 , C2 or a D. The grade you get decides your future in a new school. Coming up to the eleven plus tests you take a series of practice tests, to help you know what the eleven plus paper is going to be like. The eleven plus papers are out of seventy five marks and in order to find out your grade they add both scores together and divide the total by two. Next they place every child in Northern Ireland that did the eleven plus transfer in descending order on a list. The top twenty- five percent of these children get the grade A. The next five percent get the grade B1 and so on. There is a lot of work goes into getting ready for the test and the pupils and the teachers have to work very hard to achieve the best results possible.

We are nervously waiting for our transfer results to arrive in our mail boxes on 5th February. Hopefully the news will be good !

Its time for a big change
My new years resolution is to stop beating up my sister
This Millennium feels great,oh how time flies

Its was Saturday 5th Feburary
I ran down stairs I saw the letter
I opened it and I saw an 'A' on the letter.

I started to look for schools
Choosing schools is very hard
I like Grovenor and Ashfield boys
I wonder which one I will choose.

I will miss Elmgrove Primary School
And all my old teachers
I hope I go to the same school as all my friends
But I will probably make new friend which ever school I go to.

I have fears about my new school There will be new faces and different teachers I will start my new school in September And I will finish my first year in secondary school in June.

Our homework is probably different from yours, but we still both do lots of the same things like multiplying and dividing and so on. Some homeworks are good but some are not. When we did our eleven plus exam it was hard and the homeworks were big. During September, October and November we did lots of learning for homework but on the day I think did OK in the tests. (Our results are out on 5th February so I'll know for sure then.) After the eleven plus we weren't getting such big homeworks and it has become easier. Now we are starting new things like using protractors in our angles work My favourite subject is Science. We don't get it for homework as much. The thing I like most about Science is carrying out different experiments and investigations, that is excellent and lots of fun too.

Sports Day

Sports day is a time for me and my friends to have a bit of fun and take our minds off school work. It is also a time for us to get some exercise and to stretch our legs. In our sports day we take part in such events as the potato and spoon race, sack race,skipping race,running, the long jump,the triple jump and relay race. If you win a race you receive a certificate. At the end of the day the class with he most points wins the sports day shield. The winning class would receive the shield in assembly the next day. The teachers would sometimes compete against each other in a running race. From Primary one-Primary seven, all pupils from the senior classes primary 4-7 (2-5th grade) participate in the sports day events. Primary one-primary three have their sports day. We also have a 10 step award this scheme comprises of different types of exercises such as trying to throw bean bags into hoops. The long jump was another of the exercises the aim of which was to gauge how far we could jump. Sports day gives us the chance for a bit of healthy competition with our school friends. Our sports day is held in June when the weather is not so cold. Sports day gives our brains a chance to rest while our bodies do all the work. The best part of sports day for me is not having to wear my uniform.

On November the 1st the king was crying so hard there was nearly a flood. The reason why the king was crying so hard was because he had found out that his best plate with jewels around the edge had been stolen! Immediately the king sent out all of his soldiers to try and find the plate with jewels around the edge of it. Even the king himself went out to try and find his most beloved plate. When he was out he came across a most awkward house. Who lives here? He went up and knocked on the door. The DISH DEVIL appeared. Then the king soon realised that the DISH DEVIL was his plate! The king made the DISH DEVIL his best friend. So that's the tale for today!

We've entered the new millennium
This year bring lots of change for me
What it will be like ......... I'll have to wait and see.

February 5th is a big day,
It will decide my future way. 
The school I'll attend,the friends I'll meet,
Will the news be sad or will it be a treat.

Now I'm going to a new school 
Now, I hope it will be cool.
Here comes the postman could it be a treat A or B.
I heard the cat shriek, "Oh let me see."




We start at 9.00 am when we go in to our seats. Our first lesson runs from 9.00 to 10.30, when we go outside for break time (recess to you). This is 10 minutes long. Then we come inside and eat our break . We get ten minutes to snack before we start work again. This set session runs from 10:40 to 12:15 pm, when lunch starts. Some people take dinners at the canteen, some people take pack lunches. We say grace before we eat in the canteen then Mr Gray calls us up to get the food by tables. There are two leaders at each table to help serve to younger pupils. Lunch break ends at 12:55 pm and we go back to the class room for the last session of the day. School ends at three o'clock and for me, that is simply the best part of the day....

The New Millennium

We are coming into a new year
A time when people change
They might change lots of things
Or maybe just a few

It's February the 5th
The day I get my results
I hope I get an A
Although if I don't I know I tried my hardest

I've been looking at the schools 
Now it's time choose 
Will it be Reagent or Grosvenor
Or neither of the two

I don't think I'll be able to leave Elmgrove
I'll miss my friends
And the teachers too
And I'll miss all the things we've done

I wonder what my new school will be like
Maybe I'll like it or maybe not
I wonder if my teacher will be cross or not
Will I have friends or not
I just don't know, I'll have to wait and see.

The Adventure Of Super Sport

It was a cold and rainy day and Super Sport was walking to his house when suddenly he heard someone scream he looked around and saw a tall shadow run off. He went to the house and asked if they where hurt and if they had seen what he looked like. They didn't reply,it was probably just shock. That night Super Sport kept watch in case the villain appeared again but he didn't the next day Super Sport met Super Dragon. He was patrolling the street after yesterdays incident. The police came with a picture of him and probably his sidekick. They where both tall, they had a balaclavas on, and leather jackets and black trousers, their shoes looked like they where Nike. That night they broke into Super Sports house when he heard the noise he hit them with his basket ball and sent then to prison for 10 years.

As we go into the Millennium time for a change 
As we celebrate the new year.
A time to make a new beginning, 
AND for people to make new resolutions.

ON Feburary 5th there will be our test results, 
AS people go choosing new schools. 
And hope for a good grade, 
As you pick your schools like, Lagan College, Knockbreda, Ashfield boys, or even Grosvenor.

People leave friends in June, 
And they leave their old school too.
And hope their school is as nice,
And their teachers are all cool.

When I start school in September I will have fears,
But when I make knew friends I will be alright.
When I am older I will still remember this school.
And the happy days I had in Elmgrove Primary School.

Here comes the Millennium
Another one has past 
I won't see another 
Because it's a thousand years.

My eleven plus will not be good
On February 5th 
I get my results 
Oh what will it be .

I hope my next school will be great
And my teachers there a treat 
I think I'll make some new friends
I wonder who they will be .

I'll miss my old friends at Elmgrove
And all my teachers too 
I like it here, it's like my home 
I'm not looking forward of leaving .

The holidays are around the corner
I don't wan't them to end 
I wan't the summer to last forever
But I know soon will end.

Details of Our School

The school I attend is called Elmgrove Primary school . It's on the Beersbridge Road in East Belfast . There are about 600 pupils in Elmgrove. These are split up into seven years groups, primary one to primary seven. In each year group there are three classes with about thirty in each. There are over thirty teaching staff in our school, so it is quite big. The headmaster is called Mr Thompson and my teacher is called Mr Gray. Our room is upstairs. There are only four classrooms on the second floor, the rest are all on the ground floor. We also have a large assembly hall or gymnasium which is used for different activities. As well as this we have an art room and a computer suite. My classroom is very big, in fact it is about twice the size of a normal classroom (it used to be the old cookery room.) This is my last year in Elmgrove and I will be sad when I have to leave.

Elmgrove Primary School Orchestra

Elmgrove Primary school has approximately 20 pupils in there orchestra. There are two teachers who take us for orchestra . One is called Mrs. Lynas, the other Mrs. Davidson. There are different types of instruments in our orchestra. Violins, trumpets, horns, cornets and clarinets. In our orchestra the violins usually sit at the front because it is harder to hear them at the back as the brass instruments are much louder and incase you hit somebody with your bow. On Wednesdays we meet after school to practice. The orchestra usually sounds awful, but when you put a bit of effort into it, it sounds very good. Everyone has their own lessons every week, for example the violins go on Monday, brass on Wednesday and woodwind on Friday. Every year we go to a centre in Carnlough (A village on the north coast of Ireland.) called Drumalla House. It is great fun! We go swimming , mountain climbing and fossil hunting. We stay there for a weekend and sleep in little rooms called dormatories. However the main reason we go to Drumalla is to practice a lot for our various concerns.

We are now in the year 2000
People try to change.
Some people change their atitude,
Other just stay the same.

February 5th is coming ( Oh No!).
Eleven plus results are out.
Will I get a A B C or D,
I don't really know at all.

Leaving friends at Elmgrove (Oh what a shame!)
Why could we not stay in the same school?
And still have the same friends forever, Who makes these stupid rules.

Holidays are coming up what will I do,
Will I go on a plane or a boat or even ride on a canoe,
Who cares at holiday time - cause then your never blue.

I wonder which school I am going to,
I wonder what my teachers are like .
Will they be nice and kind,
Or will they bite my head off when I am late.
The first of September is the time I go through the gate, 
And when I go to school that day, I definitely won't be late.

A New Millennium

We're into a new Millennium everyone is full of cheer.
No matter where you turn people wish you a Happy New Year.
But February 5th is coming up soon, it isn't long to wait.
When the letter pops in though the door ,
I won't hesitate.

Bloomfield is one school I would like to try.
Their uniform and sports catch my eye
And an other one is Newtownbreda
But which are I still don't know.

Leaving my friends it will be sad,
Leaving my school I will be glad, New book and bags and clothes I`ll get
But Elmgrove School I won't forget

I will not have fears because my sisters are there
Hope I`ll make friends and we`ll come a pair
But it`s still far away before I start
And my old friends we`ll have to part.

We ran back to the house to get Mouth mat because we needed some help but Mouth Mat wasn't there. We were in real trouble because there was no one to help us. My little cousin was crying and wanted to go home but he was not the only one because I want d to go home too. ,Mouth Mat wasn,t in and I though he might be out with Eagle eye so I phoned Lauralee and asked her if Eagle eye and Mouth Mat had told her that they were going out. She said that only Eagle Eye was allowed in her house so I was really worried . I told my little cousin that everything was alright because Mouth Mat was coming, but of course that was a lie. There was a knock at the door, I didn't know who it would be because I wasn't expecting anyone. I opened it and there stood mouth mat. I said "What do you think you were doing not telling me where you were." " I was getting some things fixed for Midge the Monkey" "Well I need you to come with me to fix these monsters " O K " Oh and don't run off again, because if you do you are not coming back to my house, is that clear. Right come on then because I don`t want to wait all day ''So on we went and the monsters weren`t there.

This is the year of 2000 . 
When we get our results .
When we go to a different school .
When we meet different friends. We get different form teachers.
When we get new subjects.

We leave behind the year 1999 and start a new 2000.
There are different countries in the world that celebrated earlier and people celebrated later as well.
In London there is the Millennium Dome and the Millennium Wheel . 
That represents the United Kingdom.

It's time to choose a school, secondary or grammar, what will it be?
Ashfield, Bloomfield, Grosvenor, or Strathern?
Visiting schools all this month.

Then 5th February is the big day
Some are excited some people are not . 
We may not end up in the same schools.
What will it be A , B , C or D?

The sad thing is that we have to leave behind our primary school . All our friends will be left behind. Our memories of school days. But time goes on and so must we.

The Millennium

The Millennium is a time for
Resolutions, change and happiness
It's a time for families to get together
And have a good time
It's a time for love.

February 5th
The dreaded day 
Where everyone sits waiting
Silently waiting for the letter
To drop through the letter box
Will we jump up with delight 
Or will we dread the sight......?

It's hard you know
Choosing schools because when you've
Been at the same school all your life You don't want to leave it
I'll miss my old school
But I know I have to go 
So goodbye Elmgrove Primary
I'm going to big school now.

It's scary starting big school
I really don't want to go 
I'm waiting for the bell to ring
Wondering what's going to happen
Here's all things I'm scared about
Maybe you should know

I'm scared about my teachers
"Sit down, Shut up, don't say a word!"
I'm scared about the people in the school
Bullies punching, hitting, spitting and teasing
Thats all things I'm scared about
Oh no! Don't make me go.

Oh well never mind,time I can not stop
I've still got six months left at 
Elmgrove with my friends
I'll take life as it comes each day
Making the best of whatever comes my way.

We`ve stepped into a new Millennium
Two minutes can change the year 
Brian Kennedy and counting us in
Boy the noise was so loud what terrible din.

Time won`t be long passing 
And results day will soon be here
The worry of what's on the letter
Is certainly a looming fear.

My mum made me tell her
Where I would like to go 
I didn`t really know but maybe
Bloomfield worth a try 
They`ve soccer,hockey, rugby,netball.. the list it goes high.

Leaving my friends and teacher 
That I know would be 
Hard but life goes on
And you can `t change that you see.

The fears of my new school
Is worrying because of this
I`ll once again be the youngest of all
Just like back in primary one.



Our Trip To Delamont

Last May we went to Delamont for three days. While we took part in a lot of activities , like canoeing, archery,abseiling, bouldering and an adventure walk There were lots of other activities too and when we had time to spare most of us would play football or rugby. One of my favourite activities was the night line, that`s when you go out at about 11 o`clock at night into the forest and you follow a rope .You have you wear goggles so that no branches would stick into your. when we went to archery we had to learn how to use a bow and arrow like Robin Hood. You had to wear a leather band round our arm so when the string hit your arm it would not be as sore. The day before we went home, we went swimming and then we went to the garage. Any money we had went towards sweets and Magazines. That night we watched a video and every one put their sweets together because we had to much and couldn`t eat them all. The time in Delamont disappeared like money from my pocket and before I knew it, were back at school. Delamont was brilliant and I would recommend it to everyone.

Netball is just like basketball except you are not allowed to dribble the ball or run when you get it and it is mainly for girls. We used to get netball after school in primary six and I went with my friends Claire , Rachel and Sarah .<> There are seven players on a team at a time you have to wear a short skirt with a top [like a T-shirt]. The object of the game is to pass the ball and put it in the basket or net. Depending on your position you are only allowed to be in certain parts of the court. It sounds complicated and it is a little. My friend Claire 's favourite position is the centre. Other positions are goal attack, which is up front and goal defence which is at the back. When we move to high school, we will hopefully play it more competitively. I expect you might have seen the game in the Olympics.

Millennium is a time to celebrate.
It is now approaching the 21 century.
Leaving old friends behind.
Leaving Elmgrove School, it will be very sad.
Even the work will be harder then p7 work.
Now I am leaving Mr Gray.
No more primary ones tows or threes.
I can't wait until my Holidays and I'm Free.
Up at dawn and out to still lay.
My new school is quite far away.

All About Choir

We have choir from 3.00pm until 4.00pm every Thursday in our assembly hall. Our choir teacher is Miss Hogg she can sometimes be kind and sometimes she shouts when we are noisy. We go out a lot with the choir to sing in churches or at festivals. The choir also sing in the school Christmas concert every year. For the year 2000 we were performing a range of music from the past century. The songs I like best was Boyzone and Abba. For the year 2000 concert we wore a yellow, red or blue T-shirt with black trousers. We all enjoy singing for the Christmas concerts. We are also presently learning new songs like Little Peace and Sally Garden. I really like going to choir every week.



Millennium Poem

Millennium is a time to celebrate with your family
Inside my house you could see all the fireworks
Leaving Elmgrove will be very sad
Leaving my friends too and finding new ones
Even the work will be harder than P7 work
No more primary school days 
Now I'm leaving Mr Gray and my class
I hope my new school is good
Unaware what it is going to be like
My new school is going to be Knockbreda ....maybe.

Elmgrove Tree Nursery

Hello , welcome to our Elmgrove Tree Nursery. We are a group of P7 who want to help the environment because trees are very important to us you know.
Our class went to CLANDEBOYE boy Tree Nursery near Bangor on Tuesday 11 and we found out many wonderful things about trees . So after that we decided to make a tree nursery .
Trees our very important to us for they give us oxygen which we breathe and gets rid of pollution from factories and some trees can also provide us fruit to.
We want to achieve a good tree nursery which lets people realise how important trees our to us, the way they give us oxygen in which we breathe.
In our tree nursery we have three beds, all the seeds start of in the first bed which is for the one years old then we change beds until it is three years old and then we will sell them to people.
If you would like to contact us in any way you could always

Hello and thanks for logging on to our Website. Our class went on a trip to Clandeboye Tree Nursery in Bangor. There we found out about some trees in Northern Ireland , we also got to sow some seeds. The man who was showing us around had supplied us with crisps , drinks and biscuts for are lunch.

We have to put a lot of work into taking care of our trees. There are 3 flower beds for the trees we done some reasearch on the tree sites. We named the sites A, B, and C , site C was out near the sandpit, Site B was outside the Libary and site C was outside the Artroom. The bed that was picked was site C because it had the same amount of rain and sunlight.
