Digital Learning framework – new purchases

We are delighted with our new purchases of laptops to be used in station teaching. Along with our new interactive whiteboards, we bought these with our most recent ICT grant. The laptops can be used differently from our ipads as they have keyboards and so our students will be enabled to learn some elementary typing skills and basic use of Word etc. We think this is a great addition to our Digital Framework plan. Here Ms. ní Shúilleabháin’s students are using a programme called Typing Club and they love it!

Irish Heritage in Schools – a visit from Sarah Myers

We were delighted to welcome Irish Heritage in Schools expert Sarah Myers to talk to the children about Mythology. She told magical tales and the children explored her wonderfully theatrical masks! The children then got to decorate their own masks. They were all so engaged! Thank you Sarah and well done everyone!

Staying warm!!

I am mindful that classrooms are very cold due to ventilation. With this in mind, I have allowed that children may wear their beanie hats during the day, they may wear undergarments such as long sleeved tshirts, they may wear hooded jackets (not snuggies/onesies as these will make them sleepy) and may bring a small blanket to put over their legs. I hope that this makes conditions more bearable.Uniform is still important – we want as much normality as possible!

Sustainable Christmas Decorations!

Each year we challenge our pupils to design a Christmas decoration from recycled materials. We are a no-glitter school so you won’t see that in our decorations. Each year I am amazed by the standard of creativity! I will post pictures over the next week – enjoy!
