Our Music Teacher comes one morning each week to work with the boys and girls. As well as singing lovely new songs, she teaches them about how instruments work and the sounds they make. Joining music and movement helps the children to control their bodies - moving quickly to fast music and slowly to calmer music. Music and dance are great activities which help physical development, attention and listening skills and help make learning fun!
Soccer Skills Sessions:
Each Wednesday one class goes up to St Colmcille's Primary School for a Soccer Skills session with Burns Soccer School. The children work on developing their soccer skills and teamwork, while participating in physical exercise and above all having fun! One child gets a certificate and a football each week. This will continue for the rest of the school year. We are very fortunate as these sessions are at no cost to us as it is paid by St Colmcille's Primary School. A big thank you to them especially as the boys and girls are really enjoying learning how to play football, as well as making exercise fun.
We work closely with Marian Milligan from the Dental Health team with SEHSCT. She gives us free toothbrushes and toothpaste. We brush our teeth in school and even get to take a new toothbrush and toothpaste home each term! We have a healthy snack each day and are learning all about taking care of our teeth. Our school has achieved lots of awards from SEHSCT for this - even a Platinum award!
