First Term in 3rd and 4th

It has been a great start to the year in 3rd and 4th class. The children have been busy in all subjects.

In Maths, we have revised addition and subtraction and learned all about collecting data and representing data. We have also started to explore multiplication and division, and dived into the world of fractions.

The children have been working hard at their Irish verbs and have really started to grasp the rules behind them.

We learned all about the Egyptians and rocketed into space as we explored the planets.

The children really enjoyed completing their group projects and were excited to share their findings with their classmates.

Our writing skills were put to the text when we looked at recount writing and report writing, and I can definitely see some potential journalists among us.

In science we investigated the importance of the footprint and its relationship to ones height. We also learned about how it is used in crime investigations.

We did printing for Halloween art and played spooktacular games.

The children should be very proud of all their hard work this term!

Autumn Activities in 1st and 2nd Class

We were very busy in autumn in our classroom!! Below are but a few of the activities we completed!!

In English we focused on recount writing and learned about story structure. We practiced various poems and focused on expression when reading aloud.  Second class are working on a book entitled ‘Rainforest Animals are Important’, which we hope to send off for publication on completion.  We engaged in various online workshops via zoom to learn about different author’s and their creations. We also listened to a Halloween story called ‘The Spooky Invitation’ and created our own invitations and recipes based on the story.

In Gaeilge we learned lots of vocabulary around the themes of Mé Féin and An Bhaile.  We also worked on the theme of Oíche Shamhna.   We played games, we sang songs and did roleplays in order to practice the new vocabulary we encountered.

In Art, we completed lovely self portraits and worked on Picasso style pictures, we extended pictures to create autumn images,  we did some Halloween prints and also made some lovely Halloween figures.

In S.E.S.E. we learned about homes and houses in our environment, our county, changes in autumn and we also made memory books, detailing all the important events in our lives to date. We enjoyed learning about the origin and History of Halloween.

We have been very lucky to have had Ross in with us over the  past number of weeks, helping us develop our Gaelic skills. We also engaged in some Halloween themed P.E. games with our teacher.

We also engaged in our monthly School Assembly and performed some songs for the whole school. We also got introduced to our new student council.

We had a visit from Janet who showed us how to make up shoe boxes for the Shoe Box Appeal.

We would like to wish everyone a SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN!! STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

Maths Week in First and Second Class

This year Maths Week took place between 14th -22nd October 2023.  We engaged in lots of fun activities to develop and practice our maths skills.  We used our Six Bricks to follow instructions, answered questions on math’s posters, played games online and on our tablets, listened to a story in order to answer math’s questions and used our Math’s Eyes at home and at school to answer questions on our environment. Well done boys and girls for your active participation!!


Friendship Week 2023 in First & Second Class

Friendship week took place this year between 18th -22nd September.  We took time to reflect on the importance of friendship in our school.  We identified qualities of a good friend, learned a friendship song and made friendship bracelets.


Summer Term in 3rd and 4th

It’s hard to believe that another school year has come to an end but we have certainly finished with a busy, fun and sunny term.

We had our school tour, sports day and a visit from the ice-cream truck which was definitely a hit!

We were very lucky to have a visit from the library to teach us all about ‘Homes and Houses in the past’.


We completed our final projects on a topic of our choice and these turned out amazing with lots of new and exciting information shared between the children.

Next it was time to dive deep, under the sea, when they children created some 3D scenes using shoe boxes.


We used toy bricks to create some master pieces inspired by the famous Paul Klee.

We wrote poems in literacy and explored problem solving and weight in maths.

In French, we completed our blogs and thoroughly enjoyed exploring this new language!

All the work made us hungry  so we got busy blending and cooking and made smoothies and pizza which were simply delish!

Blessed with the sunshine, we had lots of fun outside playing rounders, no man’s land and dodgeball!

The children in 3rd and 4th have had an amazing year and their teacher is very proud of all their efforts and hard work.

Wishing everyone a very happy, funfilled summer!!!



First Holy Communion 2023

On Saturday the 6th of May 2023, our seven amazing boys and our six fantastic girls in Second Class celebrated their First Holy Communion.  This was a very special day for the children.

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 throughout the mass. The whole ceremony was enhanced by the beautiful singing from our school choir.

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.


Happy Easter from 3rd and 4th Class

After a super term of hard work in 3rd and 4th, everyone is delighted the Easter holidays have arrived.

This term, 3rd and 4th have been writing wizards, exploring persuasive, explanation and report writing.

In Maths, we have been looking at probability, fractions, decimals and 3D shapes. We even built our very own shapes. 3rd class have completed their multiplication tables while 4th class are pros at their division tables.

In Gaeilge, we were singing ‘Tóg amach mé’ for Lá Glas. We have learned our Aimsir Láithreach Briathra Rialta and will be moving on to the Briathra Neamhrialta after Easter.

We dived into the Amazon Rainforest when we were learning about Brazil. We completed group projects, covering various topics including: Animals of the Rainforest, Birds of the Rainforest, Layers of the Rainforest and Plants of the Rainforest. This was a topics that the children really enjoyed and it certainly added colour to our classroom.

We have also been exploring a bit closer to home, learning all of the counties of Ireland and what they are famous for.

Finally, we are all working on individual projects about a country of our choice. The children have been using books and tablets to research their chosen country and will present their findings to the class after Easter.

This term was full of events, including World Book Day, Pancake Tuesday, Mother’s Day, Lá Glas and finishing the term with a Pizza Party.

We have had lots of fun and are looking forward to seeing what our last Term brings!
