Hi Everyone

Welcome to Room 4!

Mrs Nelson is the teacher and she will do her best to help everyone fulfil their potential and to get the most from this year in school with lots of learning and fun.  In school we want the boys and girls to feel happy, safe and supported to be themselves and do their best. 

We start off the year learning about Space.  We look forward to finding out lots of facts and information about the planets, moon, sun and some of the amazing astronauts and people involved with space travel over the years.  This topic is great for science and technology activities which will be a good opportunity for everyone to problem solve and be creative and to work together.  We have a trip to Armagh Planetarium planned for November which should also be great fun and will help our learning come to life. 


A topic note will be shared every term giving you an outlining of information and learning that will take place. Most of our communication with parents is via Seesaw and all news and information is shared as well as the ability to access your child's learning journal. An update of the week's learning is published on Seesaw on Sunday evening as well as information about homework.  Homework is given at the start of the week and you can complete it at a pace that suits you and your schedule as I know you are all busy little people who have busy lives outside of school! Homework (in accordance with our school Homework Policy) shouldn't take anymore than 45 minutes daily.

Our priority as always, is the happiness, safety and well-being of our pupils so we will be focusing on developing resilience through daily activities that will promote well-being through healthy bodies and minds.
