Cairdeas 1

Welcome to Cairdeas 1 

Cairdeas 1 is a special class for deaf/hard of hearing children.

We invite you to explore our page to see all of the things that we are learning and doing in school this year.

Thanks for visiting our page and be sure to check back in with us again for regular updates!



In September we welcomed the children back to school! We were all happy to be back and very excited to learn new things!


We are very creative and love to use playdough, manipulating playdough also helps our fine motor skills!


In October we were visited by a member of Geashill’s Tidy Towns Committee to sow Bluebells. We were all given the opportunity to sow two bulbs each, we are looking forward to seeing them bloom in the Spring!!

We also made bats for Hallowe’en using toilet paper rolls!

Did you know that bats sleep upside down?!



In November we became scientists and carried out many interesting experiments! Check out our PowerPoint presentation, it features all the experiments we carried out during Science week!



In December we had great fun knitting and baking some lovely treats. We also wrote some reports on some of our favourite Winter animals – we learned some very interesting facts about Polar bears, Arctic foxes, Penguins and Reindeer!

We were also visited by Eve our class elf from the North Pole, who joined us for our pizza party and the panto.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us in Cairdeas 1!


Happy New Year to you all! We have begun our second term with remote learning. The children are doing their best to engage with the work provided for them. We hope to return to our classroom soon!

  • Here are some photos of all the hard work being done by the children in Cairdeas at home! Super work everyone 😀 Some of us even got to bake some Gingerbread men – Can you find him?
