We made some pancakes and everybody tried to flip the pancake. Harder than it looks!
Our class organised the school disco as part of our level 2, (Taking part in a work related activity). We gave each class teacher a set of hearts, each pupil had to earn 3 hearts to get their disco ticket. At the disco we all had a job. Leanne ran the Hot Chocolate stand, Altafin and Josh ran the Caelan. Tomasz and Josh took the tickets.
Pauric Duffy was welcoming everybody in and looked after the lights and music. Cormac helped Andrea with the face paints and Reece helped out in the photo booth. It was so much fun. We all did rock the boat and made a train.
In January we learned all about New Year’s resolutions. Some of the resolutions we made were to exercise more, eat more vegetables. As part of our short course we were learning all about Caring for Animals. We were working on caring for dogs. Andrea brought her dog Bolt. We took great care of him for the day. We walked him down to the main school and showed everyone, we also went to the dog groomers to get his hair cut we went to the butchers to buy a dog bone. We had a takeaway from Sorrentos and had a movie afternoon which was great fun. We had a day off because of the snow.
The first week of November was Science week. We did an experiment every day. We made a rainbow using skittles and warm water. We made the water walk and mixed some colours using tissue paper and food colouring. We looked at solid, liquid and gas and removed the shell of an egg to create a membrane.
We began work on designing our buddy bench and learned some new songs for our performance.
We did lots of work in the sensory garden.
We collected the cheque for our friendship café in the bank and they gave us 1000 euro.

Our popular 'Friendship Cafe' opened to the public in Bank of Ireland in Cootehill as part of Enterprise Ireland. We made lots of treats and served tea and coffee to the customers. Lots of our friends from school came to visit and we were so happy to serve some familiar faces. We all worked so hard and were exhausted at the end of it. We raised some money for our school and the bank matched the amount raised.
In Personal Care we were working on emotions, we made some emojis.
