All of our 4th, 5th and 6th classes participated in a coding session with Microsoft Ireland volunteers last Thursday. Ten sessions in total took place with amazing volunteers guiding our students. Since then, students are keen to use their computer time to continue to learn more about coding as they are finding it so interesting. A big thank you to the visiting volunteer group.

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.

Screen Time: Advice for Parents from Webwise

November 30th, 2016 by Ms Wynne


  1. Agree a clear set of rules with your child on screen time in the home. Talk to your child on when you think it is appropriate and inappropriate to use screens. Agree times when screens are allowed and not allowed in the home. For example dinner time, homework time and bed time.
  2. Do as you say. Modelling behaviour is THE most powerful way you can influence your child’s behaviour.
  3. Restrict the use of computers/devices in the bedroom. Depending on the age of your child you may want to set a curfew or ban devices from the bedroom completely.
  4. Buy an alarm clock for your child’s bedroom and charge their phones in your room at night time. This can be a helpful way of giving them a break from the internet.
  5. Try not to rely on screens too much to keep the kids amused. It can be easy to encourage kids to pick up the tablet or play a game on the computer to keep them occupied. This only confuses rules on screen time, try and stick to the agreed rules with your child and remember to set a good example.
  6. Chat to your child about what they do online and encourage them to use their screen time for learning and education.
  7. Pick one evening a week where you do a family activity together, whether it’s movie night, games night. Doing activities together as a family will help implement screen time guidelines and offer fun alternatives.
  8. Don’t have screens always on in the background. Turn off TVs and Computers when not in use, these can be distracting for kids if they are trying to participate in another activity.
  9. Finally, join in, why not set some time aside to play your child’s favourite computer game and discover the online world together.
