Hi everyone, I have put together a video with some memories from 2019-20. I would like to thank you and your parents for all the brilliant photos, work and messages that you have sent through Class Dojo and Google Classroom during this difficult time. It has been great to see. I have uploaded a personal message from myself to you all on Class Dojo, please log on to check it out. 

It was fantastic to see P7s at the P7 end of year drive-thru cinema event on Tuesday, celebrating their time at St Colman's. We wish the P7 all the best for the future and hope you will be able to visit us back in St Colman's in the future. 


I hope the whole class has a happy and peaceful Summer.


Mr McCambridge, Mrs Grant, Mrs Murphy & Mrs O'Loughlin

Wash your hands!

Fantastic posters promoting handwashing, from the boys and girls. I hope everyone is safe and well at home. Thank you for all the hardwork you have been doing. Take care.

30 days of Doodle

For a bit of fun, we've all been taking part in the 30 days of doodle challenge.

These are Charley's fantastic doodles! Brilliant.

Animal factfile

Some great examples of the work the children have been doing at home. This week Daniel researched the 'Decoy building spider' and Gary gave great examples of the animals that live in the different layers of the rainforest. Very impressed!

Creative spellings

Superb spelling work from Holly! This week Holly used plasticine to 'write' out her spellings. This was an extremely creative idea. Keep it up smiley

Super Online Learning!

Well done Jessica! First day of online learning and Jessica is already mastering her times tables. Remember parents to continue to send me updates of how all the children are getting on.


Take care and stay safe.

Mr McCambridge

World Book Day

Well done to Ross and Gary for their imaginative costumes for World Book Day.

Ross picked the adjective 'elderly' and Gary picked 'magical' for their costumes.


Athletics success

Congratulations Charley! He came first in the standing long jump at the Indoor athletics in Lisburn. A future Olympian!

A big thank you to Claire and Dr Claire from Sustrans. They took us on a walk around our local neighbourhood today. It was extremely interesting to learn about the different types of traffic lights and also the planning and designing involved in making the pavements and roads a safer place.

Pancake Tuesday🥞🥞

Pancake Tuesday 🥞🥞🥞🥞 With our ingredients delivered, we set about making pancakes today in class. 

We started by sifting 100g of plain flour into a bowl. Next, we cracked 2 large eggs into the bowl and added 300ml of milk. The ingredients were whisked until the mixture was smooth. Then, we poured a ladle of the pancake mixture into a hot frying pan. Mr McCambridge then managed to flip the pancakes successfully! Finally we served the pancakes with lemon, sugar or butter. Yum! We might even be tempted to enter the bake off next year.

Shopping for ingredients

Today in class, Mr McCambridge wanted us to do his shopping!  We selected one of the big supermarkets to shop at online. We had to find the price of all the ingredients that were needed to make pancakes and calculate the total of our shopping list. The least expensive was Ross' shopping list, which came to £5.01, whereas Kevin's was the most expensive at £11.49. Mr McCambridge decided to go with Ross' shopping list smiley

Wake up, shake up

Learning about inverse

Our class has really enjoyed the Kids' Own 'Virtually There' project this year. We have been working with artist John D'Arcy on lots of fantastic and unusual creative projects. These projects have included creating our own radio station, WECHO FM. During this project, we created our own radio personalities and radio shows. We also visited our local radio station LISBURN 98fm, where we got to 'take-over' their drive time show from 5pm to 6pm.


Our second project involved creating a pixelated virtual reality environment. This was fantastic fun and the results were amazing!

Spanish Pupil of the Week

Congratulations to Adam! He was awarded Spanish speaker of the week. 

Toasties for Trocaire

The class really enjoyed making all the toasties  for the pupils and staff in the school. We raised over £300 for Trócaire. The most we have ever raised. A big thank you to everyone who helped!

A massive THANK YOU to Elliana's father, who kindly provided our class with the bread for our Toasties. Elliana, who is in Miss O'Neills P3 class, is pictured here with the boys from my class. Her father works for Hovis and this was an unbelievably generous gift. The boys and girls were delighted to find 40 loaves waiting for them. Thank you!

WECHO FM takes over LISBURN 98.8FM

WECHO FM, St Colman's no.1 radio station, took over Lisburn radio 98.8FM as part of World Radio Day on Wednesday 14th February. Top radio presenter Michael Clarke, showed the children around the radio station and answered all their questions. He then interviewed each child and asked them about our radio station. During the drive time hour, 5pm to 6pm, Michael allowed us to choose the songs and play content from our own radio shows. It was great fun and a superb experience for the children.

WECHO FM is a project that the children have been working on in class throughout the 1st and 2nd term, with artist John D'arcy. This is part of the Kids' Own, Virtually there project. We are one of only ten classes in Northern Ireland to be involved with this project, which is a great privilege. All the children would like to thank Michael for allowing us to visit the station and John for helping us with our project and for organising the trip.

Making Volcanoes

On Tuesday we went to the INTO FILM festival. We got to watch the film 'Peter Rabbit' and then took part in a Belfast Zoo workshop. It was great fun. A massive thank you to INTO FILM and the Belfast Zoo.

The scary bunch!

Happy Hallowe'en to everyone. 👻

A fantastic homework!

I was presented today with an absolutely superb homework by Charley. He had sequenced the alphabet using bright and colourful letter stickers. Well done Charley!

St Colman's Ceramic Plaque

Today was the unveiling of our new ceramic plaque that can be seen on the outside of the school. A big well done to Sam who was asked to speak about his own ceramic plaque. He spoke with confidence and clarity in front of the assembled audience.
Today, we went outside for maths. We had to complete a lot of different activities and record data for each. We then used the data to create bar graphs.

Prize winner

Congratulations to Adam, he won a £100 voucher for 'We are Vertigo.'

A big thank you to Mr Kernan and all the Healthy Kids coaches for a fantastic fun day.
