Gordon Darcy Visit - Heritage in Schools

Gordon Darcy visited the school today. Gordon is a naturalist and an artist.

He visited the junior room in the morning where he spoke about hedgehogs and helped children to draw their own hedgehog.

In the afternoon he took the senior room out for a walk in the village and children noted the flora and fauna in our own environment.

Gordon has a wealth of information.

In the evening we drew what we saw which included , birds, various leaves and even a badger.

Thanks Gordon for coming to our school .

Parent - Teacher Meetings

A reminder to parents that parent - teacher meetings have been scheduled for next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please check the note that went home with your child early this week with your relevant day and time. Thank you.

Cycling Training

Cycling Trying took place last Friday for children from first to sixth class. We began with practicing safe cycling techniques and skills on he tennis court followed by learning and revising the rules of the road for cyclists in the classroom. Afterwards, third to sixth class got the opportunity to cycle on the road. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great but cyclists were rewarded with hot chocolate afterwards to warm back up. Thanks to Sean and Eddie who were our instructors for the day and to Ms. Hardiman for organising the day.
