In the event of an emergency school closure, pupils will be encouraged to continue to learn at home.
In the event of a closure, class teachers will direct parents to the learning overview for the time that school may be closed. We will encourage all pupils to read everyday and use online activities to improve mental recall.
My School is the interface that all children and young people use in Northern Ireland to access online tools and applications. Your child will have a username and password to access the website.

Wellness Week 22 - 26th June!
Monday: Well-being week has begun with a 'My Year' activity. Every year we think about all we have enjoyed and achieved throughout the year. Then, when we get to P7, we have 7 years to look back on to see how we have grown and bloomed! It is wonderful to look back and see how you have changed since P1!
This year has been different but it is important to remember these unusual times. Your activity is on Seesaw and there are lots of fun ways to record your thoughts about your school year! 😀
Tuesday: Have fun on your virtual trip to Dublin Zoo! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpVXQZgIJFQ&feature=youtu.be
Wednesday and Thursday: We have been busy planning and preparing to welcome our amazing pupils back to school after the summer holidays.
We know school will look a little different. We also know how brilliant our pupils will be at helping to keep us all safe.
We would love you to design some posters to remind us of the key safety messages we will be following like hand washing, keep safe distances, not touching our nose and mouth. We want to display your great work in school!
We would love you to make some brightly coloured rainbow strips to mark the floor areas! Rainbows were a sign of hope during lockdown and they will be a sign of happiness when we are all back together! Details on your Seesaw 🌈
Friday:Wishes and Worries
Sometimes worry feels like little bubbles inside our mind. We can feel worry in our tummies, in our brains, or pretty much anywhere inside our bodies. This activity is designed to help us release worry bubbles so that we feel more calm and relaxed.
1. Think about what might worry you as we look towards the new school year. Write or draw your worries in the bubble on the template attached.
2. Get your bottle of bubbles (from school pack) 3. Think about the worry that is bothering you and picture that you are blowing the worry into the bubble as you blow a bubble.
3. Picture the worry inside the bubble.
4. Watch it float away and pop, carrying the worry far, far from you.
5. Know that the worry has popped and is outside of you now, unable to bother you any more.
6. Keep blowing bubbles until you feel more calm and relaxed.
Wishes 1. Now think of a 'wish' that you have for the coming school year. This could be something that you want to work on in school, a skill you want to learn or improve or a hobby/activity outside school.
2. Draw or write your wish on the wand template attached.
