World Around Us


Welcome to our World Around Us (WAU) page!

Here at Ballysillan PS, we give our pupils the opportunity to investigate the world in which we live in a number of ways. Through our themes and topics, pupils are able to make connections between Science, History and Geography to explore and ask questions about the wonderful world around them. 

From our 'Sunshine and Showers' area in Nursery to scientific investigations in P7, we encourage all of our pupils to develop a natural curiosity and give them the resources they need to research and discover the answers they are looking for. 

STEAM- Science Technology Engineering Art Maths

Throughout their time in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2, pupils are encouraged to take part in STEAM activities throughout the year. Our 'Global Learning' approach allows the children to participate in activities that link with their topics, creating meaningful experiences for us all. 

Keep an eye-out on our WAU news feed for the latest STEAM news and activities that you can try at home. 

If you take part in any STEAM activities at home, remember to email a photo to and you could feature on our website!
