We had a fantastic trip down to Fota Wildlife Park for our school tour!
Our 1st & 2nd Class Bake Sale was a great success and we really enjoyed making, selling and eating all our tasty treats!
It was all fun & games on the day of the launch of the 'Let it Be' CD.
A huge congratulations to all the Second Class children who made their First Holy Communion. They were a credit to our school and a credit to their parents and families. We hope you all enjoyed this special day!
1st and 2nd Class got lovely chicks for Easter knitted by Ms. Mulvihill's neighbour, Tessie. They are all now gone off to good homes!!!
In PE this month we performed some gymnastics. The children were very creative incorporating different rolls and and balances in their performances.
We really enjoyed Crazy Hair Day and dressing up in our patriotic colours for St. Patrick's Day.
Well done to our 2nd Class pupils that made their First Confession on the 13th March. Fr. Ryan, Ms Twiss and Ms Mulvihill were very proud of them!
We were very constructive in 1st and 2nd Class making our 3D shapes with straws!
Love was in the air this month when we made our beautiful love hearts using a skill called 'quilling'.
We had great fun learning our indoor uni-hoc skills! 1st and 2nd Class really got into the swing of things. We played some very competitive matches also!!
Sixth Class came to read different stories for 1st and 2nd Class. They read with great expression and we enjoyed all the different books.
We did a big Christmas Quiz to test our general knowledge. Everyone was in competitive form! We all enjoyed putting our brains to the test!
Enrolment Mass for Our Holy Communion
On Saturday night last, 10th November, the children had their Enrolment Mass for their First Holy Communion. They also each received enrolment certificates. We are looking forward to learning all our prayers and songs in preparation for our First Communion.
Oíche Shamhna 2018
We were were very busy celebrating Oíche Shamhna with different activities in the classroom. We learned scary songs and poems. We dressed up, we entered the pumpkin -carving competition, we made some spooky art, had a popcorn party and ate some báirín breac blasta!
We brought nature into our classroom! We collected different types of leaves, berries, conkers, pine cones, an empty birds nest and even some dried honeycomb!!!
September got off to a flying start with our beautiful art work. We made our own 3D hot air balloons and used our imagination to create a setting. Some of us made our hot air balloon fly over the countryside, others over the city and some made their hot air balloon fly over planet Earth!!
We also learned about the city of New York. We based our art on the skyline of New York using charcoal. We learned how to create dark and light shades using the charcoal.
