Virtual Circle Time …. this will do your heart good 😀

This week the Nursery were invited to participate in our virtual circle time.  Their responses were just the tonic we all need!  So lovely to hear their voices and see the faces, after all these weeks away from school.  Nursery, Foundation and KS1 are collaborating on new online early years teaching and we will be emailing out the information very soon.  Nothing can ever replace the happiness that meeting the children everyday brings, but in these uncertain times we are working hard to provide a new learning experience for our Mullaghbawn children.  We are looking forward to the new exciting opportunities that we will offer; keep a watch on your emails for updates.  Stay safe and enjoy our circle time.

Numbers’ Day

Numbers’ Day

.

There were numbers everywhere today, helping us to spread the important message, “Speak Out, Stay Safe”. Even Buddy the NSPCC mascot made a return visit to help out.

We hope you enjoy catching a glimpse of some of the activities we were involved in around the school. Watch out for more pictures in the local papers this week.

A big thank you to family and friends for sponsoring the children in their Dance- athon and to our student teachers Miss Hearty and Miss Murphy who led all the classes through their dance moves.

Finally a big thank you to Mrs O’ Hagan our Numeracy Co-ordinator for organising the day and promoting a love of Maths with all the boys and girls.
