A fun filled end to term 3 in JI and SI

What a wonderful time we have all had in St. Oliver’s as term three draws to a close. We explored the theme of Under the Sea as well as enjoying the fantastic weather. We also had such fun during Active Week and on our school tour in the beautiful Carlingford.

Check out our photographs.

Infants and 1st Class School Tour

Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class had an amazing opportunity to visit Kevin Woods the Leprechaun Whisperer. Kevin invited us in and told us fascinating stories about leprechauns and fairies. He showed us the underground cavern where the leprechauns and fairies meet. We visited the wishing well and saw the fabulous monuments on display. We really did have a wonderful day and would like to say ‘thank you very much from all of us!’

Terrific Tour at Tayto Park!

4th, 5th and 6th classes had an absolutely amazing experience in Tayto park for their end of year tour today. Learning lots about the interesting animals during a guided tour was a great way to start the tour. The rest of the time was spend in a fun filled frenzy with friends on all the rides.

The children’s behaviour was exemplary! We all had great fun and made some great memories!

An exciting final tour for our 6th class pupils!

Egyptian Extravaganza

Term three has been all about Egypt in 4th and 5th class this year. We learned all about the pharaohs and their pyramids in Ancient Egypt and even made some pyramids of our own for construction in Art. We then learned about Ancient Egyptian writing or hieroglyphics and then created and decorated our own signatures on clay slates using hieroglyphics.

Finally in groups, we researched the geography of Egypt and even more about Ancient Egypt and compiled it all using Google Slides. We assessed our work using a rubrics and then got the opportunity to present our research to our peers. It was a fantastic opportunity to show off our developing computer and presentation skills!

Excellent E-Portfolios

This year 4th, 5th and 6th classes were lucky to have the opportunity to create an e-portfolio of their own digital creations. This platform gives the pupils the chance to reflect on the amazing digital projects that they have worked on this year and showcase their favourites.

It has been a very creative  year for our senior pupils this year and we are really looking forward to adding more amazing projects into the portfolios next year!

Happy Father’s Day

To help celebrate Father’s Day this weekend, we decided to thank our Super Dads by creating flying super dad cards powered with the force of air.
