In Maths last week we learned all about the symmetry. The children then created their own symmetrical paintings!
We had a wonderful time preparing for Easter in Junior and Senior Infants this year. We learned all about the Easter story in Religion, learned lots of new vocabulary in Gaeilge through oral language games and completed some Easter themed art activities. We also made chocolate cornflake nests as part of our cooking/baking programme, and even had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny!
On Saturday the 30th of April 2022, our five amazing boys and our four fantastic girls in Second Class got to make their First Holy Communion. Finally, we got the opportunity to celebrate this special occasion on the expected date and even though we had a wet morning, the children shone.
Our entire school community is incredibly proud of each and every one of them. They did our school, themselves and their families proud with their prayerful and respectful participation in the mass. They sang their hearts out and we are certain that it will be a day that they will never forget.
It was a privilege to help these wonderful children on their journey of faith to the sacrament of First Holy Communion.
We would like to sincerely thank Fr. Daly for all his support as we prepared for this special day. He without doubt ensured that the day was a truly memorable one for the children.
We hope that your weekend of celebrations was all you wished for. May God continue to guide our First Communicants in faith and protect them always with his love.
Lots of balanced arguments and debating taking place in 5th & 6th class this week. Well done everyone!!
A surprise guest in 5th & 6th Class today with lots of Easter treats!! Happy Easter everyone!!
We have been ‘Busy Bunnies’ this week in 1st & 2nd Class and we have learned alot about Easter. We learned about the Easter Story in Religion, we did jigsaws, word searches and oral language activities in Irish, Easter addition and dice games in maths and corrected the Bunny’s mistakes, and cracked the code in English. In Art we made some bunnies of our own. We made delicious Easter nests and we even got to meet the Easter Bunny himself. It really was an EGGCITING week all round!! ‘HOPPY EASTER’ everyone!
On Friday 1st April 2022 we celebrated Autism Awareness Day. Firstly, we recapped on what we had learned last year about autism. We then learned about living with autism from the perspective of Megan, a ten year old girl from Canada whose little brother Matt has autism. We learned a lot from watching Megan go through daily life, and we have definitely taken away some brilliant ways to help make life easier for someone with autism. We also wore blue on the day to support Autism Awareness!
Thank you to all of the boys and girls for taking part.
The penultimate week of our cooking/baking programme seen us making smoothies which we were delighted to enjoy outside! It’s great to see the good weather here!
For our fifth week of cookery we decided to take the healthy option and made some delicious smoothies. We used strawberries, yogurt and orange juice and had great fun ‘whizzing’ everything together in the blender!! We then cooled down after our Gaelic session, while enjoying our smoothies outdoors.
Congratulations to the 4th, 5th & 6th Class Girls’ Football Team who took part in four games over the last few weeks while taking part in the Cumann na mBunscol School League. Unfortunately we were unsuccessful in going forward to the final but the standard and performance from the girls in all their games was outstanding. Thank you to the coach Darragh Flanagan and to the girls for their dedication and commitment to their team. Well done girls!
