Below you’ll find our blog with lots of pictures and news of what we have all been up to throughout the school year. Use the menu above to find out more information about our school and our school community.
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!’
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!
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!
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!
3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes ended Active Week literally on a high today as they climbed to the very top of Barnavave at 350m high.
Thank you so much to Aisling for her expert guidance!
The five teams thoroughly enjoyed sports day this year and our winning Green Team were very excited and enthusiastic!
One lucky family was also very happy to receive the prize of the Chocolate Fountain!
Finally some more of our wonderful pupils received excellence awards for their participation in school life and learning.
What a wonderful Sports 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.
We had a great time harvesting the potatoes that we have been growing. We made lots of predictions about which soil would produce the most potatoes; (a) soil, (b) soil and compost, (c) soil and manure
It was surprising to discover that the soil and manure produced the least amount of potatoes, however it was really interesting when we weighed the potatoes and discovered that the soil and manure created the greatest weight of potatoes.
Thank you to all the parents, Ms Quigley and the grow committee for all their help and support this year.
