October in 3rd and 4th Class

Well, what a busy few weeks it has been in Mrs. Lennon’s Room. We have been exploring 2D shapes and using cubes to help us understand division in Maths.

 

 

Miss Connolly taught us all about space and we made our very own rockets to launch!

The boys and girls were very lucky to head on a trip to Cloghan GAA grounds to take part in this year’s Blitz – the first to happen in a long time! The weather was great, the children were all fantastic and we had an absolute ball! Mrs. Lennon was very proud of each and every one of the children, both for their excellent behaviour and fantastic sportsmanship!

We finished October on a high with Halloween celebrations. Such an amazing effort made by everyone dressing up. We played games, watched movies, had a Halloween Parade and tucked into a treat or two. Thank goodness there weren’t many tricks!

 

Enjoy the holidays everyone and stay safe!

Autumn Hedgehogs

Our wonderful infants used toothbrushes to create these beautiful Autumn Hedgehogs. We learned all about hedgehogs and how they are preparing to hibernate for the Winter.

6th Class Graduation and Farewell

We say farewell to an amazing bunch of boys and girls in 6th Class. It was an absolute pleasure to teach you this year and thank you all for the lovely memories you have left with us over the last eight years in St.Michael’s NS. Congratulations on your graduation and the very best of luck to you all as you embark on the next journey in your life to Post-Primary School. Be the best that you can be!!

End of Year in 5th and 6th Class

The last few weeks of this school year were a hive of activity. We took part in the Magical Leaders Programme led by Enterprise Ireland. The boys and girls designed and created amazing 3D constructions. We had a few trips to the park, played Tag Rugby for an afternoon at the football field, enjoyed mouth-watering ice cream from the surprise ice-cream van and we were enthralled by the amazingly talented magician Keith who put on a captivating show for all classes. 5th class did a treasure hunt, made a delicious biscuit cake and had a wonderful summer party. 6th class worked as a team on various outdoor projects including yard painting, planting in our friendship garden and enjoyed their Graduation party and treats following their online end of year ceremony.

Have a wonderful summer boys and girls!!

Exciting Week in the Infant Classroom

We have had a very exciting week in the infant classroom!

On Wednesday 16th we were very lucky to have Donaghmoyne coaches Oisín and Michael in to teach the children tag rugby. The boys and girls had great fun and learned lots of new skills. Thank you Oisín and Michael!

 

On Thursday 17th we spent the morning at Donaghmoyne park. We are so lucky to have such an amazing facility right beside our school!

 

After our morning at the park we held our Sport’s Day. As we didn’t get the chance to hold a Sport’s Day last year, this was a first for both Junior and Senior Infants. The children had a wonderful day!

 

We spent plenty of time outside enjoying the sunshine!

Magician

We were very lucky on Wednesday 16th June to have a magician come to our school. It was a lovely treat for the boys and girls as we get ready to start our Summer holidays!
