Crazy Hair Day!

Scoil Mhuire’s Parents and Friends Association organised a really creative fundraiser this year on June 27th! We all really enjoyed the crazy hair day!

 


Touch Typing

Touch typing is an important skill in today’s technical world and it takes time to develop both speed and accuracy. We have set up accounts for the children in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th classes on Typing.com. The children will have a chance to practise touch typing during their weekly computer class. We would greatly encourage additional practice at home if possible. The children each have an individual login and password that can be used at home as well as at school, this means they can continue from where they left off every time they log in. Some children may enjoy keeping up with their typing over the summer holidays!

Some tips for typing practice:

  • Sit comfortably with your feet on the floor. You may need to adjust the height of your seat or table and adjust the screen so you can see it comfortably.
  • Your keyboard should be at a height that allows your elbows to be bent about 90 degrees and close to your sides.
  • Try not to look at the keyboard while you type -you can cover your fingers with a piece of kitchen paper if you can’t resist that temptation.
  • Don’t rush -you will get faster with time as you become accustomed to where the keys are and which finger needs to reach for them. A little practice done often goes a long way!
  • As always, be careful when working online: be safe and report anything that you are uncomfortable with to a teacher or to your parent / guardian.

 


The Reel Picture!

The whole school took a walk to the cinema today – for some it was the highlight of the year!

Many thanks to our Parents and Friends Association who not only helped to fund the trip but helped us to cross the roads safely on the way to the cinema and on our way back.

Pupils in each class had a chance to vote from a selection of films earlier in the week and we finally settled on seeing the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Big Haul”, “Boss Baby” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge”. We made good selections and everyone seemed to enjoy this cinematic experience!

 


4th Class School Tour – Crag Cave

It was quite a journey to Crag Caves in County Kerry on a hot day -but it was well worth the trip! We had a busy day that started off with a guided tour down the cave – we saw stalagmites and stalactites! This was followed by Falconry flying display. We really enjoyed crazy cave and the playdium. Lunch is always more exciting in a new setting! All in all a great but exhausting day – many of us snoozed on the bus journey home.
