Cookstown Library Visit

On Tuesday 1st March, after LSC2 had cooked and ate loads of pancakes, they walked from school to Cookstown Library to join Holy Trinity LSC classes.  After browsing through some of the fantastic range of books in the library, we were treated to a fantastic puppet show.

Mr Hullabaloo and his friends taught us some songs and told us stories.  The first story was “Bobbin and the Ugly Duckling”.  We learnt that it was ok to be different and that is what makes us special and fun to be around.  Then we met Troublelina who was always getting into trouble.  Mr Hullabaloo taught her how important it was to say “Sorry” when we do wrong things.  Our last story was Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.  After all her escapades, Goldilocks learnt that she needed to say “Sorry” to the 3 Bears.

We all had a fun afternoon and before we went back to school, the librarian gave Mrs McCartney our library cards so that we can visit the library with our parents and borrow some books to read at home.

World Book Day in LSC2

On Thursday 3rd March we celebrated World Book Day.  We had great fun dressing up as our favourite book characters.  Jacob came as Willy Wonka, Abigail was a Unicorn, Sarah came as Anna from Frozen,  Caden was a big blue dragon and Jude was Yoshi!  Matthew and Heath wore character t-shirts and we even had 2 policemen in the classroom keeping law and order!!!  Everyone, even the parents couldn’t wait to see what character Miss Evans would come as.  At 8.45am, in she walked; The Cheshire Cat!!  Wow, what a lot of amazing book characters in our classroom today!

ASC 1 Cookery

We are all superheroes in LSC1!

Everybody in LSC1 had lots of fun dressing up as superheroes to celebrate ‘Superhero Week!’

The children designed their own superhero costumes, made masks and used their super skills to overcome obstacles in PE!

Thank you to those who sponsored our little superheroes for all the good deeds they completed all week. We raised lots of money for a SUPER cause.

Well done to everyone!

“Brr, it’s freezing”

ASC 2 have begun the topic, “Brr, it’s freezing” and have made some sparkly snowflakes and winter pictures.

Our Cookery sessions are one of our favourite activities every Friday. So far this term we have made bird food, sticky rice krispie buns and yummy wrap pizzas.

Police Visit

In LSC1 we have been learning about people who help us. We were so excited to have a visit from a police officer.

We learnt about how to stay safe when crossing the road and all about what police officers do in their daily jobs.

We think our favourite part was getting to see and sit in the police car, especially turning on the flashing lights and sirens!

Snow day

Our new topic this term is ‘Splish, Splash, Splosh!’

As part of our learning we have been investigating water in different forms. We were so excited to explore the snow and ice, especially by drawing pictures in it and observing the snow melting in our hands.

Halloween Dress up Day


LSC1 have enjoyed learning about their senses as part of our Marvellous Me topic this term.

We have spent lots of time exploring our outdoor surroundings by finding things we can see, touch, smell and hear.

Selfie Time!

It is September 2021 and we are excited to be back at school after the summer break and welcome the children back into LSC1! We were so glad to see children who had been in the class last year and also to welcome new children into the class – Mason, Conor, Ronan, Oisin and Katie from ASC2 as well as Rosie from ASC1.

Check out their selfies!

ASC 2 back to school

ASC 2 have been enjoying lots of fun activities to help settle back into school. Our topic is “All about me” and we made lovely collage models of ourselves in Art. We have been making some delicious treats in cookery each week, we made a beautiful Very Hungry Caterpillar from yummy sandwiches! The P4 children have been looking for signs of Autumn in Nature Study and found some lovely Autumn leaves and blackberries. We used our senses to explore!
