Yoga/Mindfulness

25/11/2018 16:19

A growing body of scientific research shows that mindfulness has positive effects on mental health and well-being. Practising mindfulness has been proven to help children learn to focus, manage stress, regulate emotions, feel compassion and empathy and develop a positive outlook. 

Mindfulness is part of the SPHE programme in St. Mogues NS and this is the second year that we have run this course for all children in the school. We would like to thank our instructor Ann Reilly for her encouragement and enthusiasm.  The children benefited greatly from the sessions and learned useful techniques to carry forward with them.

The Sky's the limit!

Learning Outside The Classroom

11/06/2018 14:13

Learning outside the classroom (L.O.T.C.) is the use of places other than the classroom for teaching and learning.  It is about getting children out and about, providing them with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn.  By giving the children the opportunity to get outside and experience nature, they bring learning to life.  With this in mind, 2nd and 3rd class took the classroom to the wooded area beside the school in early June. Subjects covered during the busy day included maths, history, P.E., art, S.P.H.E. and English. The weather was favourable and everyone enjoyed the day. Thanks to Tony Bannon for giving us access to the wooded area, and to Martin Dolan for supplying us with slates and chalk to help us recreate life in a hedge school!

More photos and video to to be uploaded shortly….
