Can I remind parents to please ensure their child or children has a bottle of water with them.
Thank you for your continued support,
Reminder for tomorrow Wednesday 18th April
As this month our topic is ‘Healthy Living’, we are looking forward to welcoming Shaundelle Marks from Top Marks Fitness to lead us through an exercise session tomorrow morning commencing at 11.
All Nursery Parents Welcome!
The Nursery team would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Easter!
We have had a busy few days at Nursery! Yesterday we had the pleasure of P.7 helping us. The children did a clean up outside in the Nursery playground and enjoyed listening to stories being read to them by the P.7’s.
After that we had a special guest the Easter Bunny, and the children received lots of yummy eggs.
Today we had another surprise whereby Fred the magician came and did a spectacular show for the Nursery children. The children where mesmerised.
We hope you have an enjoyable and relaxing Easter Break!
Love The Nursery Team!
We had 2 P7 teams away to St Paul’s HS today taking part in the STEM Challenge. They were presented with a scenario where an airplane had crashed, passengers were injured and they had to construct a bridge to span a gorge to allow access to the crash site. Their constructions were made using paper, art straws, paper clips and light weight card, it had to span at least 30 cm and hold a weight of 250gms for 30 seconds. Teams were scored in 3 areas, team work, planning and furfilling the brief. Whilst neither team were placed on this occasion, their constructions were well made and easily withheld the force created by the weight. Well done to all 6, boys and girls!
The children from the Irish Dancing club had great fun last week celebrating World Book Day and St Patrick’s day by wearing green and dressing up as their favourite character. Below are some pictures of the children looking great and full of smiles.
Just a reminder about tomorrows dancing class, Friday 23rd of March that parents are more than welcome to come to the last 15 minutes of the session, as I would like to display to you how hard the children have worked since the club began. This will end the Irish Dancing club for this term as next Friday 30th March, the school will be off on Easter break. Dancing will recommence after Mid Term on Friday 13th April. Times are as follows for tomorrow:
P.1 – P.3 – 2:45PM
P.4 – P.7 – 3:45PM
Also can I remind parents to pack a drink for their child or children as it is thirsty work!
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
