Away with the birds in Blue Class

In Blue Class, we made some bird feeders during our messy play and hung them in the School Garden and the trees in the car park.

Marine Week

We had fantastic time last week learning about Marine environments. The Green school’s website provided lovely art activities and fact-filled mini-videos from which we learnt a great deal. We are very proud of the work that our students completed, and this can be seen displayed on our Green school’s notice board. With the return of our school bus outings this week we are aiming to conduct a beach clean-up. We will keep you posted! Thanks to An taisce, and especially to all of our staff and students for making it a week to remember! Well done all!IMG_20210428_111155 (1)IMG_20210428_111223IMG_20210428_111401IMG_20210428_111441IMG_20210428_111352IMG_20210428_111212 (1)

Virtual Special Olympics

Image 26-04-2021 at 22.36 Image 26-04-2021 at 22.36

During the month of March we were delighted to take part in a fantastic initiative organised by Special Olympics Ireland – a Virtual Sport Competition.

Lots of our students took part in the motor activities and athletics.

At the start of the month we sent in our times/distances/ effort and then trained at least once a week, some even training three times a week for the month. The new data was then sent in and correlated.

In the Motor Activities we had students from three different classes participate in stepping, beanbag lift and small ball lift activities. They all worked so hard and as can be seen below

Orange class participants, well done girls.

There were lots of options for all students to participate. The students in White class decided on 25m walk or run and the tennis ball throw from the Athletics Programme. Below is a wonderful video compiled by Anna – one of the SNA’s in our school showing us some highlights from White Class training.

All students in White Class made progress over the month and as a result there were many first places secured well as lots of other medals.. We are so proud of them all and as you can see they were also really proud of themselves as they stepped onto our podium to cheers and  applause from their classmates.

Green Schools News

Rosses_Point_We are very excited about completing our work on the theme of Global Citizenship and Marine environments. Usually at this time of year we at St.Cecilia’s would be planning to conduct our annual beach clean-up, however, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we are planning to raise awareness of litter and pollution by conducting a clean-up of our wider school environment. We have conducted our survey relating to awareness of marine litter and we have compiled a video for our Green schools assembly. We are also working in conjunction with Coillte and the Action Team Partnership to provide a home for two beautiful Willow tree saplings!

Runner beans.

Since the start of our new theme “Growing” the students in Black Class have been set the challenge of running a half marathon before the Easter Break. They are completing this challenge by running 1km a day. Since the start the time have been tumbling and the enthusiasm is growing. Not only are we completing this challenge but we have been keeping up our fitness routine by using the indoor rowing machines and started using the battle rope.

Black class have also been measuring and comparing measurement using rulers, tape measures and even a trundle wheel.

In communication and language  the students of Black Class have been following visual sequences to make their own healthy snacks.

We have also enjoyed looking at the signs of spring and creating pieces of art  based on flowering plants.

We look forward to letting you know how we get on with the rest of our running progress.IMG-8935 IMG-8936 IMG-8939 IMG-8942

We have explored measurements such as capacity and length. We have made great progress with our hand writing without tears programme. Lots of the students worked very hard on this at home over lockdown and have progressed to the next stage of the programme!IMG_20210226_121148_resized_20210305_083848082 IMG_20210301_134004_resized_20210305_083847767 IMG_20210301_134554_resized_20210305_083847096 IMG_20210302_140254_resized_20210305_083846794 IMG_20210226_120730_resized_20210305_083846137

Blue class mixing it!

Before the mid term we made ourselves some lovely pancakes to celebrate Pancake Tuesday! We had fun mixing all the different ingredients and pouring them into different containers to create some yummy pancakes!

We really enjoyed this terms topic of colour and exploring everything colour! We mixed all types of colours together to make new colours and use these colours to make some art! We explored different colours when practicing our handwriting too!

Special School – Reopening

Dear Parents/guardians,

Our school will reopen fully to all students from Monday next March 1st. Thank you to everybody who worked so hard to ensure that the partial reopening went well and our students were successfully reintegrated into school.  Special thank you to the teachers who supported the children who were in school and at home for the past 3 weeks.  Please ensure that if your child is coming back to school for the first time that a return to school form is completed in advance of returning. If your child has any symptoms please adopt a precautionary approach and follow the public health guidance.

We look forward to seeing all the students back together again.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards

Éilis Dillon

Principal
