Sports Day 2022

We had a lovely day on Tuesday 14th June celebrating our school Sports Day. The children particpated so well and tried their very best in every race. Well done boys and girls! 

It was so lovely to be able to welcome families back to spectate after not being able to do this in previous years due to covid. Thank you all for coming. 

A huge thank you to Mr Beattie for his brilliant organisation on the day and to all staff members for their continued hard work. 

 

The Platinum Jubilee

What an amazing afternoon we had on Wednesday 1st June to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We were so fortunate to have secured funding for this event through ‘The National Lottery’ Fund. This meant that absolutely everything was free! There was lots to enjoy including bouncy castles, a coffee cart, BBQ, face painting, lucky dip, ice cream van, Erne Highland Dancers and The Garrison Accordion Band. 

Our school playground was packed with families and members of the wider community, which was so lovely to see after a long spell of not being able to socially interact. The weather was fabulous too! 

Thank you all so much for attending and your continued support. 

Easter Fun Day

Well what a day we had on Tuesday! We started the day with a wonderful surprise guest….Mr Tom Sweeney! Tom provided both classes with some wonderful entertainment, it was amazing to hear the laughter and music from our boys and girls. It was simply lovely to have a visitor back in our school. 

Following this we had an Easter Treat hunt, the pupils had great fun searching for all of the yummy sweets and chocolate! 

After lunch we had our farewell and happy retirement assembly for Ms Noble. During this assembly prize winners for Centra Belleek’s colouring competition were announced. Well done to all of the 1st and second prize winners, I’m sure it was very difficult to decide from so many amazing entries! A huge thank you to the Centra in Belleek for providing yummy Easter Eggs for the winners as well as a Creme Egg for each child that took part. 

We wish you all a very happy and healthy Easter! School Resumes on Monday 25th April 2022. 

A Fond Farewell

It was a very bittersweet farewell to Ms Noble this week. We are so delighted for her to be able to enjoy her retirement but were very sad to say goodbye. 

Ms Noble has been a wonderful support to many pupils during her 15 years as a Teaching Assistant in Belleek Primary School. We had a little farewell assembly where pupils presented her with some beautiful cards and a lovely memory book from KS2. The children had an extra long play time while the adults enjoyed a nice cup of tea with Ms Noble. A huge thank you to all parents and staff for their very generous contributions and presents, Ms Noble seemed very pleased with her retirement gifts. 

Everyone in the Belleek Primary School Community wish you a very happy and healthy retirement Ms Noble. We look forward to our future catch ups! 

World Book Day 2022

What a fabulous day all of our children had for ‘World Book Day 2022′. We were so pleased to see all pupils making such a great effort by dressing up as a character from a book. We unfortunately didn’t manage to take any pictures of the KS2 class in their costumes but well done boys and girls for taking part! 

Miss McMorris’ class were busy discussing their favourite books and enjoying extra story time. They made crowns as they explored lots of kings and queens from some classic fairytales. 

Mr Beattie’s class also discussed their favourite books and characters. They designed some fabulous front covers to reflect their favourite books. 

Well done everyone, excellent work! 

 

Happy Heart and Happy Mind

Last week in school we focused on keeping ourselves healthy both physically and mentally. We talked about healthy eating, exercise and explored our top tips to feeling happy. 

Miss McMorris’ class sampled some delicious fruit; exploring their senses. They also made support balloons to promote positive mental health. To finish off their week they made some beautiful Valentine’s Day pictures. 

Mr Beattie’s class were busy giving their top tips for maintaining a healthy mind. As the theme for Children’s Mental Health week was ‘Growing Together’ this year, Mr Beattie’s pupils created a diagram illustrating their past growth and future growth, all of which has already shaped and will shape them as a person. They also looked closely at the structure of the heart and made some lovely Valentine’s Day cards to finish off their week. 

To celebrate ‘Happy Heart Day’ on Friday, we encouraged our pupils to wear red. Take a look at our busy week, well done boys and girls! IMG_0484

Lots of fun outdoors

Our pupils love wrapping up warm and exploring outdoor play. We were even lucky to have some snow last week to enjoy! There is a lovely woodland area to look out for signs of wildlife, build dens and experiment with the mud kitchen. Our foundation stage and Key stage 1 pupils enjoy developing their pedalling skills and speed when using the wheeled vehicles.
