Testing for all pupils takes place during the month of May. Please ensure that children are well rested for the testing which will be ongoing in the junior school from the 8th May and begins in the senior school from Tuesday 14th May onwards. As we have been selected by the Department of Education & Skills to take part in further field research to improve standards in testing, our 2nd and 6th class pupils will be undertaking a second set of tests this year, good luck to all!!
Junior Achievement Business volunteers will visit the school on Friday 17th May for a STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering and Maths) workshop and goal orientated lessons. This involves working with our two 5th classes using P.E. and Maths as a blended lesson to enable children to see that Maths is all around us in everyday life.
Junior Achievement volunteers will continue to visit 5th class pupils for a period of five more weeks as part of this initiative.
News from The Gardening Team
The New Gardening Team was formed in April 2019, to help Claire in the garden. As part of the project, compost bins have been put into 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes. Raw fruit and vegetables only will be put into the bins, and each day the Gardening Team will empty the classroom bins into the compost bin in the garden. A layer of paper will also be added, and we should see the compost forming over the coming weeks and months.
