My Family in JI and SI

We have had a fun but very busy time in JI and SI where we have been learning about ‘My Family’. We designed our own house and play areas as well as taking on the different roles in the family in our dramatic area. We also designed our family tree. Have a look at our photos.

November Assembly

Some of our dedicated pupils were presented with excellence awards recently for their wonderful participation in school learning and life during November.

4th and 5th class also informed the whole school about Creative Learning, which is one of the new Core Values in our school. They really enjoyed showcasing some of the songs, poems and projects that they have been working on in school since the start of the year.

Singing and Spinning in the Marshes so much Festive Fun!

A huge thank you for a most amazing way to start December, children singing and parents spinning.

Spinning

 

Singing

We’ve had a wonderful afternoon in the MARSHES SHOPPING CENTRE, singing center stage. The choir was made up of children from JI-6th class in our school who could come along and sing.

Thank you to all the pupils, who were outstanding, their presentation was complimented by so many visitors to the shopping centre and passersby.  They looked AMAZING. The children sang their hearts out, sounded fabulous and brought such joy to all the people who were in the Marshes today. They really should be very proud of themselves, as we are very proud as a school of their efforts and talents.

Thank you to the parents who took the children in to Dundalk affording them this very special opportunity, the parents  who came along to spin as we were singing and of course all the parents who showed your support in so many ways today, we even had a daddy playing on a fiddle, a lovely addition to the music. It was wonderful.

Thank you to the members of our fantastic school staff who were able to come along to support and help the children, Ms Eileen and Mrs Crossan as together in true team spirit we entertained the crowds.

Thank you to the Marshes Centre for inviting us to sing, to the Four Seasons Hotel Lesiure Centre Staff who provided the bicycles for the Spinathon but above all a massive thank you to Donna Gallagher -PA Chairperson for coordinating both aspects of today’s events. Seamless as always!

European Project

The pupils in 5th/6th class were learning about Europe this month. The children each took a country to carry out research on. At the end of the project, everyone got a chance to present their work to the whole class. It was a great way to learn about a number of different European countries.

Super 3D Shapes

We enjoyed learning about the characteristics of 3D shapes last week in 4th and 5th by making models using sticks and modelling clay to help determine the number of vertices, edges and faces in each of the shapes. 

We then were able to use this knowledge to design the net  of a 3D shape as the basis of a magnetic car. We are looking forward to testing  the magnetic forces and the most efficient car design next week!
