(Drop Everything and Read) session down in Selskar with Ms. Jones even laying on a bus for our transportation to Selskar by coach. The class then spent an enjoyable hour browsing and enjoying the many genres of literature in Selskar's Library. We marked 'Maths Week' with by measuring and recording dim ...

  • 'Count the Egg' Winners & Calculators

      Every child left the school today with a Malteser 'Bunny' compliments of our hard working 'Parents' Council' who also provided bags of 'Free Froms' for our pupils with food intolerances. They will take to the streets again this evening with Easter's 'Split the Pot.' Their ever popular 'Guess the number of Eggs' competition was held again this year and after intense scrutiny of the 'Guess Sheets' compiled over the past few days by pupils from Ms. Gahan's and Mr. Murphy's 5th and 6th Classes there proved to be '2 Nearly ...

  • Country and Transport Project

    Country Project First we got into groups, next we got the tablets and then we researched our country.Ava’s godfather Surken came in to tell us more information about his country. When we got enough information we got posters. We printed out some information and wrote the rest ourselves. Then we stuck it onto our posters. We stuck down pictures as well. We also stuck down our country flag. When we were finished we presented them to the class. Transport Project The transport project was similar to the country projects. Our options were cars, p ...

    the crest

    Our logo is a cross and an open pomegranate. The cross is the universal symbol of Christianity. The pomegranate has a strong association with the city of Granada in Spain where our patron, St. John of God, lived. The abundance of seeds in the pomegranate is a reminder of God's endless love for us.
