Halloween in Junior and Senior Infants

We have had lots of fun preparing for Halloween this October.

We learned about the history of Halloween and spoke about the different traditions that we have at home at Halloween. We also discussed how to stay safe at Halloween, especially this year! We learned a new Halloween rhyme, ‘Witches Witches!’ and had a Halloween Dance Party outside!

For art we created beautiful pumpkins from clay, have a look at the fun we had in the process!


The children also used Halloween themed playdough mats to make their own Halloween creations. Have a look at our spooky names below.


Finally, we held a Halloween themed colouring competition. Well done to our winners JJ and Robyn!


Wishing you all a safe and happy mid-term break. Well done to our infants on all of their hard work this term!

Halloween 2020

We had great fun this Halloween in St. Michael’s National School. We took part in ‘Trick or Treat for Temple Street, and raised over €300 for this fantastic cause. Thank you to all for your donations!

We also held a socially-distanced fancy dress parade and fancy dress competition. Congratulations to our winners – Erin, Tiernan, Sophia, Tara, Neasa, Killian, Jamie and Emily.


We have an amazing first term here in St. Michael’s National School. We look forward to seeing you all in November!

Happy Halloween from 1st and 2nd Class!

Although we celebrated Halloween in a slightly different way this year, we still participated in lots of Halloween activities.  We learned lots about the History of Halloween and its’ traditions in S.E.S.E., we learned lots of tips about keeping safe in S.P.H.E. and created our own safety tips posters, we wrote our own acrostic Halloween poems and completed Halloween Spiders and Frames in Art.  We were delighted that we still got the opportunity to dress up and participate in a fancy dress parade!  The outfits were fabulous!  We finished our last day before our Halloween holidays,  with a Halloween movie and some tasty treats.


Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Congratulations to all students who took part in, and successfully completed, our Summer Reading Challenge 2020. This was the first year of our Summer Reading initiative and it has been wonderful to see the children to eager to take part! Our successful participants were awarded with medals for all of their hard work. Well done boys and girls!

Hallowe’en in 5th & 6th Class

We had a wonderful time getting ready for Hallowe’en this year. The pupils worked hard on creating spooky artwork. They wrote and dramatised Irish stories -‘An Cleas Iontach’ which were truly magnificent. They composed an interesting version of our poem ‘An Púca’ which will be able to be viewed on our Facebook page. They shared Hallowe’en stories and ‘Tall Tales’, discussed the History of Hallowe’en and enjoyed their fancy dress party on the last day! Have a SPOOKTACULAR Hallowe’en everyone!!

Happy Halloween 3rd and 4th Class

What a spook-tac-ular day it has been! Well done to everyone for the fantastic effort made with all of the costumes.

We had great fun today playing games, watching spooky movies and tucking into lots of treats – all well deserved by everyone.

3rd and 4th class have worked extremely hard this term They have really settled into their new room!

We have been busy learning All about Bats, Bia, Fractions and much much more.

Our Halloween Art turned out amazing.

Have a great week off everyone. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing everyone after the Mid-Term.

Happy Halloween!!


3rd and 4th Class

What a busy start to the year it has been in 3rd and 4th class. We have all been getting to know each other and we have settled into our new classroom.

The boys and girls have been working really hard, but have been having great fun too!


Maths has been all about adding and subtracting, and we have even challenged ourselves with some multiplication and division too.

The children have been revising all of their times tables and we are currently holding a bit of challenge to see who really knows them all.


We are enjoying reading Charlotte’s Web and look forward to watching the movie once we have completed the book.


The children have been enjoying GAA with Cillian every Tuesday with games and skills.


There are many budding artists in our room. See some of the masterpieces we have created below.

We received a lovely delivery of brand new board games to our room  – a great addition for Golden Time!
