St Hilda's Special School Athlone




Welcome to the Lily class. Since returning from Christmas holidays, we have been very busy. We did a project on school in January and February, the themes have been in January my school and for February friendship and relationships, we have completed lots of beautiful art to compliment this.

The children have enjoyed lots of lovely baking including a kinder rocky road, porridge bread, scones and some gorgeous cupcakes which were thoroughly enjoyed. We also had lots of art where we had lots of fun designing our spring trees, making Valentine’s cards and St Brigid’s crosses.

We have gotten out for a few nice spring walks where we have noticed the spring flowers popping up and the weather becoming milder, we talked about the change of seasons and how in a few weeks we will have longer evenings.

We have worked hard in maths learning all about how to count money and get the correct change, we made a shop and used a toy cash register to calculate cost and change.

Damien is now back doing P.E which everyone enjoys, we also had a concert for the children from a band who also helped us write a song.

The children are now all looking forward to a break for midterm before returning to another busy term of work and play. We had student of the term today where for the Lily’s Kyannah was our well deserved winner, there was a presentation and a little prize to celebrate her win.

That’s all for now so have a lovely midterm break from all of us in the Lily class.
