Summer Reading Project 2017

June 29th, 2017 by Mr. Carty

The children in 3rd to 5th class have received a book to read over the summer. The 3rd classes are reading the 2nd book in the Milo Adventures by Mary Arrigan. The 4th classes are reading Four Kids, Three Cats, Two Cows, One Witch (Maybe!) by Siobhan Parkinson. The 5th classes are reading the Parent Agency by David Baddiel.

When the children are finished they can either submit a book review in the comments section below, or else hand write a book report and bring it back to me in September. All books must be returned in September. Any child that completes a book report will receive a prize.

Happy reading!

Mr. Carty

NEW School Record–Lennon Berrigan!

June 23rd, 2017 by Mr. Stuart and tagged ,

Wow! Lennon Berrigan in 5th class has broken the school record! Never before has anyone at Talbot typed so fast. 

Yesterday, the 22nd June 2017, Lennon typed at a speed of 74 words per minute (wpm). He showed me and his teacher Ms Ward the certificate from typing.com,which he got when practicing here in school.

Many many congratulations to him. How fast will he be next year? 

How fast will YOU be next year? Lennon practices on typing.com. You can too, for free. Create an account for free and begin! Remember, you must practice with the fingers on the correct letters; aim to get good before aiming to get fast. Enjoy!

Every Monday after school, Mr Bannon and Mr Byrne are helping out 4th and 5th class children in the Talbot CS (Computer Science) club.

Computer Science skills are really important in the world we live in and the children in the club are using IT (Information Technology) skills, creating stories on Scratch, working with others, following instructions, making games and completing IT tasks.

Well done to everyone who is taking part in the club. In the next assembly we will be showcasing some of the projects the children have created.

Grandparent’s Day – May 19th **Competition**

May 9th, 2017 by Mr. Carty

This year we are celebrating Grandparent’s Day on Friday May 19th. Grandparent’s are invited to the school hall at 11:15am for a healthy lunch, kindly supplied by GLANMORE FOODS (our school lunch providers). The children will then join the grandparents and we will celebrate the role our grandparents play in our lives. Invites have been sent home with the children, and I am asking that they be returned by this Friday, May 11th.

Also, I am asking children to write in the comments section why their grandparents are so important to them. I will put all the people who comment into a draw for some prizes.
