We have been very this term working hard and having fun. Here are some of the things we have gotten up to.

We had 6 weeks of drumming lessons with Cathy from Rhythm and Shakes, she was so lovely. Cathy picked a musician of the week, she watched out to see who was listening carefully and playing well. We loved the sound of the drums and really enjoyed our lessons.

This years swimming lessons in Splash World were really fantastic, the water was nice and the slides were amazing! We can’t wait until next year.

This term we had Well Being Week, we made mindfulness breathing buddies with Bernie Woods in a Mindfulness Workshop, we sang some of our Peace Proms songs for the School of Sanctuary Assembly and we made feathers with our buddies for an exciting Art project in school.

In February we took part in the annual Texaco Art Competition. We each chose out own theme to work on. We also drew fantastic self portraits-there is a surprise hidden underneath them! We created a picture about all the things we love about ourselves and what makes us different.

We took part in Peace Proms this year in the SETU Arena, it was so much fun. We worked so hard all year learning all the songs and dances. We sang our hearts out and barely had a voice left after it!!The audience sang and danced with us, it was great!

On World Book Day we dressed up as our favourite characters from our favourite book. We brought in our books and shared what we loved about them with our class.

We had a Ceolchoirm in the Halla on Green Day. We sang Ceolchoirm sa Chró and Tóg Amach Mé on the stage and had our fantastic Irish Dancers. Everybody made a huge effort to dress up in green. It was a great day!

We have done some great work learning about the stone age and creating our own cave drawings. We wore green for World mental health day and we have also really enjoyed working with 1st Class, our buddy class!
