KG1 Dolphins

Welcome to Kg1

Dear parents,

I know this is probably an exciting time for you and your child but also a nervous time too. I thought it might be a good idea to introduce myself. My name is Caoimhe Barr (pronounced kee-va) and I will be your child's teacher this year. I am from Ireland and I have worked with children in the early years (0-8 years) for many years. This is my first time working in the Middle East.

I am very excited to have your child in my class for the years 2018/2019. I am very much looking forward to helping your child grow and develop over the coming months through the help and support of the teaching staff within the classroom.

My lovely teaching assistant Ms. Analisa will be present each day to encourage children and scaffold their learning.

If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email:

Holiday Pic Collage

Dear Parents,

Over the half-term break you might get up to some activities with your child and I thought it might be nice idea if parents photographed the different things children got up to. Parents could take a few snaps and use the app “pic collage” to include all of the photos in a bigger collage. If possible parents could print the “pic collage” on an a4 sheet for the children to bring when returning to school on Sunday 28th October. The reason I am asking for this as I feel it would be a great starting point for children to discuss their “holiday news.” It would also assist myself as I would have an idea of the things each child got up to when they were off and I could use this for questioning and to promote language and communication.

I hope you all have a lovely half-term with your children. Ms. Analisa and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with your children since August. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation!

Ms. Caoimhe


Thank you very much for your support for 'friendship Thursday.' We had a fantastic response with many of you providing fruit for our class! We had a wide range of fruits to choose from to add to our salad. The boys and girls worked hard chopping the fruits and adding them to the mixing bowls. Some of the children choose to add yoghurt to their salad before eating it (although not everyone was a fan). The main thing is that children enjoyed the process of making the friendship salad and it was a great team effort. Well done dolphins!

Have a nice weekend.

Pssssssssssssssssssssst! Parents, finally some pictures. Just click here to enjoy some snaps from your child's first few weeks in Kg1!
