We had a great full first week back at school, with a lot of excitement throughout the week.
We had a great time during P.E., moving in different ways; jumping, crawling and rolling our way through different activities. We also learned the importance of cooling down after exercise and taking some time to relax.
It was great to see the children bring healthy options to school for lunch. A lot of fruit and healthy snacks. We are learning all about healthy eating this month so keep it up!
We're heading on our school tour to Newbridge House & Farm this Thursday May 31st.
You'll find a social story below for the trip that you can read to your child and help them prepare for the visit to the farm and playground.
Don;t forget to put sun cream and a sunhat on your child if the weather's nice or welly boots and a light raincoat if rain is forecast!
We're all very excited to go!

Toilet Training for Children with Autism & Special Needs
From learning new routines to knowing when it’s time to use the toilet, to being able to manipulate clothing, the potty training process can take many years for some children with autism to become experts.
Our workshop is carried out by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and will provide parents & professionals with the fundamentals to help them put together a successful toilet plan for their child.
Tickets can be booked online: wwww.adamandfriends.ie/training/
