Shared Education Programme(SEP)/ Numeracy Collaboration K.S.2

4th May 2018

Arvalee School welcomed 15 K.S.2 pupils from All Saints’ P.S. Tattysallagh, their teacher Mr Gary Mc Kenna and Classroom Assistant Karen Mc Learn. The pupils from All Saints’ P.S. were taught alongside their peers from Arvalee School. This SEP created a unique opportunity for the pupils to learn alongside each other, respecting difference while developing their confidence and self-esteem in numeracy. The students experienced a variety of numeracy based activities which included the use of technology in various forms including interaction with Max, Arvalee’s robot who is programmed to play Maths games. The three, ninety minute sessions were supported by Arvalee classroom assistants Mrs Maria McCance, Mrs Andrea Harkness and Mrs Melanie Swann and delivered by Mr Gary Mc Kenna (All Saints’ P.S.), Mrs Caroline Farrell (Arvalee School) and Mrs Kate Gallagher-Arruda (Arvalee School) provided the teaching staff with an excellent opportunity to share good practice.
