There are 8 wonderful pupils in Class 9 and they have settled brilliantly into the new school year. We are enjoying our busy timetable, full of fun activities which cover different aspects of the Key Stage 3 curriculum. Class 9 like attending active activities such as swimming, horse riding and yoga once a week. We also have just begun our community school link with St. Patricks High school in Keady where we work on shared learning activities with the students from Keady doing Art, Home Economics, PE, Music and Technology and Design. In Class 9 we have been working really hard on developing our numeracy and literacy skills and also developing our functional life skills such as setting the table, brushing our teeth, dressing ourselves and lots of other useful skills. We have been loving our class novel of ‘How to train your dragon’ and our weekly visits to the library. In science we have been studying the theme of ‘Space’. We have learned lots of facts about solar system and we even made a class rocket from recyclable materials.
