KS2 Assembly and Pupil of the Week



Pictures from our KS2 Assembly last Friday. Well done to all those who were awarded Pupil of the Week. We had a lot of recipients for awards!  Some for engagement and going that extra mile in our Lockdown Virtual Classes and others for their attitude and application to work now that we are back in our real life classes.
We will post the Foundation and KS1 pictures tomorrow.

Well done everyone!

Film Crew

This is “Tidy Ring of Gullion Week”  and all around the village,  people are cleaning up litter. Today whilst out doing their bit, our P6/7 class were filmed as part of a wider promotional film for the area organised by the Ring of Gullion. It was a great experience to work with a professional film crew. Watch out for “our stars” when the film goes out later in the year!

Confirmation + Baptismal Certificates

Dear P7 Parent,

Before the Sacrament of Confirmation can take place we will need a copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate,  if they were baptised in any Parish other than the Parish of Forkhill. 

If you don’t have a copy of the certificate please telephone the Parochial House of the Parish in which your child was baptised and arrange to collect a copy or have it scanned and emailed to you.

Please email either of us at the addresses below to let us know if you are in this position.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation in this matter,

Miss Mulkerns + Mr Mc Coy.

Collaborating from Home!

Collaborating from Home!

Who said group and collaborative work wasn’t possible during Lock down?…. It was no problem to our IT savvy P6 and P7 pupils!

As part of their “live” online RE lessons, pupils were divided into Groups and given a link to a Google JamBoard. Each group were tasked to create their own visual display of “The Beatitudes” which they had been learning about.

Pupils could see each other’s online presence and through the use of “Sticky Notes”, they communicated and negotiated with their JamBoard partners. Suggestions were made, tasks assigned and the overall appearance of their combined work agreed upon.

We were delighted with their combined efforts, why not click on the link to see for yourself the amazing collaborative work completed whilst physically distanced, well done to everyone!

P7 Remote Learning Snapshot 2021

Included within the video below, is a small selection of the Remote Learning work completed by Primary 7 during the second term. The girls and boys continued to cover all areas of the curriculum from home. They can be proud of how well they reacted to this situation and the resilience that they showed.

While maintaining their dedication to their daily Literacy and Numeracy tasks through Google Classroom and Collaborate Ultra, P7 have also taken part in topic-based, Religion and PE lessons as well as other one-off live sessions with guest presenters. A big thank you to Mr Winters, our student teacher, for all of his hard work with the children throughout the second term and also to Mrs Quinn & Mrs McKinley for their assistance.

P7 will enjoy their Easter break at home before returning in April for their final term of primary school at St Mary’s.
