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.’
Please note that enrolment for the school year 2020-2021 closes on Friday March 20th @ 3:00pm. Thank you.
This term in Red class we have been exploring the world of food. we are working hard on grouping different types of foods, we have been using food as a basis for works of art, and also singing our own food related songs. We have been out and about in the community exploring supermarkets and the wide variety of foods that are available to buy. We have made purchases and used the ingredients to make tasty treats for ourselves!
We have been learning lots about food this term we have explored many different types of food using our sense of smell touch and taste. We have made stewed apple, some sweet treats and lots of different types of fruit. We have also used lots of food in our messy play activities. In art we have used the theme of food as inspiration for our activities.
We loved the theme ‘food’ in Navy class. We have taken part in a variety of numeracy activities, sorting and matching fruit and vegetables. We have also been busy developing our personal care and well-being through food and nutrition lessons. We have made lots of different healthy snacks during cookery. We really enjoyed going on a community outing to buy the ingredients to make healthy banana,blueberry and oat muffins!
We have really enjoyed our food unit so far in Pink class. We were the first in the school to produce “Fruity Friday” for the students. It was a real honour.
In cookery we have made several healthy dishes as well as a mixture of smoothies. As part of our Personal Care PLU we have been:
- Sorting food into the different food groups
- Identified safe practice for food preparation and storage
- Demonstrated appropriate food hygiene and safety
Finally we even went on a trip to identify which countries our fruits and vegetables come from and looked at how far they have travelled.
