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!
We had big celebrations in Silver class this week. One of our Silver class girls turned 12. Happy Birthday Lauren!!!! We are so proud of the young lady you are becoming.
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.

Today we had a special visitor in St. Cecilia’s. He even got a little bit delayed flying through a snowstorm on his way from the North Pole!! A special thanks to his helpers Mary and Breda who created a really special grotto in our school garden. We loved popping into say hello and receiving our gifts.
This term the Green schools held a socially distanced meeting in the school hall. We discussed our theme of Global Citizenship and Marine Environments. We also discussed our ongoing energy monitoring, re-visiting our policy on recycling in order to maximise it’s effectiveness and we discussed the possibility of a new bio-diversity garden to the rear of the senior playground.
If any of our school community would like to get involved in any of these projects, please give Paul a ring at school.
We gathered recyclable materials in Silver this week and used them to make different sounds. We enjoyed making quite a racket!!!!
Students in Red class have been working very hard in maths. We have been busy doing matching activities, sorting items based on colour, shape and size and counting activities using numicon. We have also been really enjoying our sound theme listening and dancing to lots of music and using musical instruments and we even made our own instruments! Very busy all round!!
Since returning to school Black class have been extremely busy looking at our new unit of sound. We have been out and about in Sligo identifying the natural sounds around us, in the class room making art through the use of sound, classifying sounds and relating them to our feelings and colours and listening to the different sound that can be made when cooking.
Apart from sound we have also made phone calls to book tables in restaurants, followed instructions in cookery to make some culinary delights, learnt how to identify the key features of a utility bill and the vocabulary around them and identified 2D shapes and their properties.
We also had an individual achievement in Black class recently, with a student eating for the first time in school. We are all so proud of you.
