Welcome to our class page for 2019-20
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
All online learning and communication will be conducted through Class Dojo and Google Classroom. Please check the children's home packs for details on how to log in and connect. A guide pdf is also available on the online learning page.
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.
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.
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.
Congratulations Charley! He came first in the standing long jump at the Indoor athletics in Lisburn. A future Olympian!
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.
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
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!

Our Poem for World Book day was 'On the Ning Nang Nong' by Spike Milligan.
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.
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.
