First place in Ireland for Mathletics.

A massive congratulations to Ross in 5th and Maxwell in 4th class for coming 1st in Ireland yesterday and today in Mathletics, what a fantastic achievement boys. Ross and Maxwell have shown that hard work pays off. What a nice way to finish a successful year, we are all very proud of you.

Blue Star Programme

We are pleased to announce we have been awarded a Blue Star European Flag under the Blue Star Programme.

Our senior class participated in The Blue Star Programme this year, where they learned about European cultures and the EU through creative activities and projects which compliment the primary school curriculum.

We would like to thank Mrs Tansey for all her work with this programme.

We hope to have a flag raising ceremony in due course, early in the new academic year, whilst adhering to all social distancing and health guidelines in place at that time.

 

Mindfulness

Parents,

Please find below a series of videos on Mindfulness. The first two videos focus on mindfulness for children during worrying and challenging times. The next two focus on the loss that many pupils are struggling with, following the abrupt cessation of school,  in particular 6th class pupil and the effect that online peer communication can have on pupils’ self-esteem. They link to the SPHE curriculum and are mediated by Suzanne Mulqueen, a primary school teacher and mindfulness facilitator and Dominic Cogan, a retired primary school teacherand mindfulness and wellness facilitator. The videos are released each week – we will post them below for your convenience.

Online Learning

All classes are continuing to learn using online platforms. Children from Junior Infants – 3rd class and the Haven classes are using Seesaw and children from 4th – 6th class are using Google Classroom. All children using Seesaw should have received an access code before Easter in order to join the online classroom.

If you encounter any issue with either forum, or you need assistance getting started, please do not hesitate to contact me. The school email is admin@knockns.ie. Teachers have also provided parents with their email addresses – as you may wish to contact them directly to discuss your child’s learning.
