We had fun learning about making choices for Communication and language 1.14 – clearly indicate preferred objects. Personal care and wellbeing – 3.12 – Show preferences for foods and 3.18 – Participate in making healthy snacks.
We decided to use apples and top them with our choice of chocolate and toppings – nuts/sprinkles or coconut!…some students even selected 2 options.
Great sensory learning in Pink class.

White class students have been working on the Level 1 Numeracy Learning Outcome 2.24 Participate in a shopping experience where real money is used functionally.
We made a class shop where each student got to purchase an item needed for our cookery lesson. Students were shown a photo of the item they had to purchase. Students then had to find the item in the class shop, bring then item up to shopkeeper Anne to see how much it cost. Students then handed over the correct coin from €1 or €2 in their wallet.
Students loved the activity and we had lots of fun using the class shop. What made it even more exciting was that we immediately used all the ingredients we purchased to make some yummy foods in cookery.
We are so conscious that this is not an easy time for you as our students love their routine which includes school. All of our teachers are available through Seesaw to communicate with you and offer help and suggestions. You can contact me directly at email@example.com if there is something you need. Keep well.
Following the DES advice that all schools, colleges and childcare facilities will close until 19 April because of Covid-19, St. Cecilia’s will remain closed until that date. More detailed information and updates will be available via national broadcaster and official HSE website.
The Department of Education and Skills has received an updated letter for all schools from the Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health, Dr Tony Holohan, addressing the recent school closure as a result of the confirmed Covid-19 case.
The letter is attached here and is also available on our website below under
the heading, ‘Chief Medical Officer advice for parents and schools.’
