The Pushkin Trust

Year 5/6 have been selected to take part in this year's Pushkin Trust programme.

At the core of the Pushkin Trust’s work is the Schools’ Programme which is a cross-curricular, cross-community and cross-border project involving primary, secondary, Irish medium and special needs schools.

This year's theme is 'Opening Ground'.  We will explore the physical concept of the ground, of earth and soil. Year 5/6 have been taking part in drumming and dance workshops which is leading to a performance in the Alley Theatre at the end of February.  We will also have a brief visit to a garden centre and then take part in a creative writing workshop.  An environmentalist will also pay a visit to school to develop the theme further. 

We will hold a Celebration Day in April with an exhibition of the project work created by pupils and teachers during the programme. Participating schools receive Pushkin plaques and award certificates.
