Mr. McCambridge

Welcome to our class page for 2019-20

 

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!

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.

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.
