2014 Back to school.

Classroom news

Its back to school for all in Lios Cúram and we are all happy and excited to be back to see our friends after the holidays.

Our theme this month is ‘Weather’.

During this month we made a classroom display of rainclouds, umbrellas and kites. Our group work consisted of writing about weather conditions we experience during this season, i.e. snowy, stormy and rainy days. We played the bingo weather game and painted weather themed pictures. During cookery class we learned how to make sandwiches and toasted sandwiches. We also learned to make sausage rolls and cut homemade potato chips and cooked them in the oven.

This term two of our boys are starting computer classes  with 6th class boys and girls in the computer room four mornings a week. They have started BBC typing lessons and both have their own google account where they have started to type their own personal profile.

During OT all have made great success. All have progressed onto the ramp and other OT stations.

We have started Keyboard music class this term. Two of our older boys have made great progress and both love it.

On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons three of our older boys join in with some 6th class boys and girls in indoor soccer and this has proved a great success.

Our reflexology class continues this term.

All boys continue to make great progress in Speech therapy and Theraplay in class.

One of our boys  is to make his First Holy Communion in May and he has begun his preparation for this special occasion. We attend mass every Tuesday morning in St Josephs church.

Every Tuesday morning we have our breakfast club where the boys make toast,  cereal etc and sit together and have breakfast.



Our swimming slot this term will be every Friday morning. Also on this day we will  get to visit the toy shop and trips to the supermarket, Dunnes, and various shops are on the agenda.

Exciting News Flash!

Music Therapy will be starting in Lios Cúram in February.
