A walk through the corridors January 2022

Lots of colour to ring in the New Year 2022 from Mr Butler's Class.

Ms Byrne's class did a lovely maths display for our entrance hall.They were learning all about time and created a school calendar along with lots of interesting number facts and sentences about this year.

Classes have been learning all about the Chinese New year and Ms Coyle's class made laterns, Ms Gaughan's class painted cherry blossoms.

6th class have been doing projects all about the the USA. Ms Bates' infants studied colour and were inspired by Kandinsky. Prodedural writing in Mr Manning's and Ms Byrne's class. How do you eat your Oreo?

Mr Teeling's class were studing painting and creating seascapes. Ms Bates' class studied the Artic. Ms Cosgrove's infants inspired by the winter months created colourful penguins.

Ms Kavanagh's class had Spraoi le Gaeilge. Ms Gaughan's class explored the underwater world.

Ms Dunne has the corridors of St. Catherine's lined with books. Teachers and children inspiring growth mindset and character development with displays along the stairwells aswell. Ms Horgan's infants explored 'Three little Pigs' during Aistear.

And finally, how do you feel today?

Our morning meetings headed up by Ms Koelstra and Ms O Neil are helping us improve the St. Catherine's Ns community through; self-regulation strategies, building relationships, supporting wellbeing, growth and academic achievement. Throughout the school we are working on the zones of regulation checking at our Morning Meetings to see how we are feeling, sharing our news, exercising our brains, focusing on our core values and character strengths. Creating a teaching and learning environment where all feel heard, appreciated and cared for. Our Core Value was Hard Work for January and I think we can all agree that the students rose to the challenge and showed the character strengths associated with hard work, to name but a few;

  • Curiosity
  • Creativity
  • Love of Learning
  • Perseverance
  • Teamwork
  • Growth mindset

What mindful exercies can you weave into your day. Maybe some mindful colouring like Mr McGrath's 6th!
