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! Check out our video of the day in Our Classroom News

Mindfulness with Ann Reilly

19/09/2017 19:13

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

With this in mind, we have invited Ann Reilly to our school to practice mindfulness/yoga with our students. Ann will take all classes for mindfulness/yoga sessions in the school hall every Tuesday for the next 6 weeks (until October 24th). This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce the children to the concept of mindfulness and many of the children will no doubt benefit from the experience.
