The boys and girls in 3rd and 4th class made lots of fun things using lego sets sent to us from the Wexford Education Centre. We worked in groups and made various different things from race cars and bees to helicopters and much more. Using our ipads, we downloaded the app WeDo2 and made our creations move and make sounds using our coding skills. It was great fun!
Field Trip to Bowe’s Shop!
We learned all about our local area this month. We talked about the facilities and services that we have here in Kiltealy. We went to Bowes Shop and carried out a survey. We asked lots of questions and examined all the products that were available in the shop. We had great fun and even got to buy a treat!
Thank you to the Bowe family and all the staff for making our field trip happen!
From Ms. O’Neill and 3rd & 4th Class.
Two staff members from Kiltealy have trained in the INPP (Institute For Neuro-Physiological Psychology) programme for schools. This programme has been designed to allow teachers to more effectively assess neuromotor readiness for learning. It requires teachers to facilitate a short exercise programme each day for certain classes.
The programme was delivered by Aoife Caulfield and Judy Breen and is of particular benefit to students who exhibit neurodevelopmental delay (NDD). Nevertheless the exercises are beneficial for all. Listed below are some of the indicators that are commonly known to be indicative of NDD.
- Reading and writing difficulties
- Numeracy and organisational difficulties
- Co-ordination problems and clumsiness
- Poor concentration/distractibility
- Visual and auditory processing difficulties.
- Poor bladder control
- Delayed speech and language disorders
- Hypersensitivity (physical and emotional)
- Hearing and sequencing difficulties
- Balance problems
- Stressed, withdrawn and over tired
This programme will be rolled out in our school from September 2018.
The Readathon in Kiltealy NS commenced prior to Easter. Ms. Kehoe was thrilled to announce that the number of books read exceeded last years total. Final numbers will be added to this post shortly.
The sunshine last Friday was an excellent opportunity to announce the winners of the competition outdoors. The pupils showed an amazing interest in this years reading initiative. Congratulations to all who were involved.
