Welcome   Witamy  добре дошли  

Welcome to Our P7 Class Page

Seesaw will continue to our main source of information and contact for parents but we hope this page gives you an insight into our learning and the fun we have here in Tullygally PS.

Outdoor Learning

Our class is focusing on more opportunities for outdoor learning. We are exploring and using the natural world around us to help our learning. A lot of us prefer doing our lessons outside and feel it suits us better.

Shared Education

We have been working closely with our partner school Drumgor PS. We focused on the Take 5’s Steps to Wellness.

We CONNECTED – with each other. We were ACTIVE – learning about our bodies and participating in workouts. We TOOK NOTICE of our similarities and differences.  We KEPT LEARNING through shared lessons on our body, mindfulness and music. We also learnt how to code and program Micro:Bits in partnership with W5. Finally, we GAVE to older members of our community by creating gifts and putting on a Christmas Carol Service for the residents of Aughnacloy Nursing Home.  

Other Examples of Active Learning & Learning

We learn together by actively getting up and doing. We are hands on, exploring, investigating, sharing, problem solving, learning, explaining, justifying…   

Mindfulness and Growth Mindset

After, ‘Hi5s  and welcome backs,’ Mr Guy, Mrs O’Neill and Mrs Furphy prioritised focusing on developing an awareness of, and exploring mindfulness and how to develop a growth mindset.

Mindfulness is defined as, ‘a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.’

Fixed Mindset Vs Growth Mindset

Those with a fixed mindset see intelligence as being inherent. They are good at some things naturally and see no reason to develop other talents or skills beyond their current abilities.

Those with a growth mindset see intelligence as fluid; something which will increase and flourish through hard work, grit and resilience.

We will be equipping the children with strategies that they can use to relieve life’s stresses and live happy, healthy and successful lives.
