World Book Day

We are really looking forward to Monday 7th March when we will be celebrating World Book Day. Come to school dressed as a character from a story you like and enjoy a day in school doing lots of wonderful things to do with books. You never know what other surprises there might be as well!

Meet Bobby Bear

We would like you to meet our very own Longstone Bear. Huge thanks Ciara who kindly presented us with it last week. Our last bear was borrowed kindly off Mrs Kirkpatrick so we are so pleased to now have our very own!

We held a whole school competition to choose a name for our own bear and the winner was chosen by Mrs Kirkpatrick. Well done Evie who chose the name ‘Bobby”.

Look out for the sequel to Longstone Bear and see the adventures of Bobby in the not to distant future 🙂

Music Rooms smaller


On Thursday 18th February we had a demo day with Music Rooms in Ballymena.  Craig, Sam, Dean and Matthew brought a range of different musical instruments with them and they gave us some great demonstrations on each one. They have offered our school the opportunity to have music tuition for these instruments in school. Please get in contact with Mrs Logan if you would like anymore information!

Longstone pupils ‘bearing’ up well!

LONGSTONE Primary School in Ahoghill has its own version of the famous Ballymena Bear!
OVER the last few weeks everyone all over the world has been talking about the new Christmas TV promotional film featuring the Ballymena Bear.
Longstone pupils found watching it enchanting, magical and heartwarming.
Now the children themselves are currently involved in creating their own ‘movie’, to promote their school and they invited Stephen Reid of Grafter’s Design, makers of the Ballymena Bear film, to show them a few tricks of the trade! The children participated in a film-making workshop, were shown the cameras and props and even got some movie-making tips from Stephen!
