Senior Infants and First Class were given a mission! Read about our mission below: First, we designed our boxes! We wrote letters to our future selves describing what we have been doing during these strange times! Our families helped us to create amazing art that shows who we lived with during this time! Finally, we filled our time capsules with artwork, masks, gloves and anything that we used during these weird times to help us! Thanks to parents and families for all of their help to make our time capsules!...

At the end of May, we read a new book at home. The title of the book is ‘How to Catch a Star’. The author of the book is Oliver Jeffers! He is the person who wrote the book. Have a look at some of the activities we did during the week! Have a look at some of our beautiful star artwork below: We retold the story using pictures: We made plans to catch our own stars!: We did some superstar stuff at home too! (AS USUAL!)

This week, we listened to the story ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ by Giles Andreae. This book was full of lots of short rhymes that told us about all of the creatures that live in the sea! 🐟 🐬 Senior Infants taught their teacher about sea creatures!🐠 🐠 Some children wrote about the shark, one wrote a story about a crab named Buttercup. Miss Conway even got to learn some new information about the big blue whale and the jiggly jellyfish. Miss Conway had a great time learning all of this new information from senior infants. Thanks for teaching...

STEM for Fun with the junior classes started a couple of weeks ago. Here Junior Infants, Senior Infants and 1st Class were brought to the hall each week to work with teachers and parents to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths games and challenges.

Throughout the year each class will get a 5 week block of STEM for Fun with thanks to our HSCL, School Completion, teachers and...

Humpty Dumpty STEM Experiment   Here in Junior and Senior Infants, we had great fun reciting the Humpty Dumpty rhyme. This got us thinking about how we could help protect Humpty Dumpty from cracking in the future. We decorated our individual Humpty Dumpty’s by using whiteboard markers to draw faces on our hard boiled eggs.     We then placed each Humpty Dumpty into a ziplock bag filled with different materials to cushion Humpty’s fall to see which material would best protect him. Before beginning the experiment, we discussed the different materials we would use to try...

On Thursday, we dressed up for Halloween! Les, Mr Vance, Mr Foley, Mr Kinsella and Paddy dressed up as the Jamaican bobsled team, while the rest of the staff were Halloween Class Dojo characters!   Lots of our students dressed up and everyone really enjoyed seeing each other’s costumes. A big thanks to the Parents’ Association, who organised a Halloween disco for all of our classes. We had great fun! Look at our beautiful costumes in Junior Infants! Here are some of our costumes in 6th class. 6th class made their costumes as part of their October projects!
