We have been busy baking and cooking again this year and love learning lots of different skills during these lessons. We are very lucky that Mrs. Kelly has the BEST recipes for us to try and it’s definitely our favourite time of the week! So far this year we have made homemade sausage rolls, scones, apple pie, jam tarts and garlic bread. Through baking, we learn lots of important life skills, as well having the chance to practise some Maths concepts in real life. For example, every time we bake we get the chance to measure out ingredients, estimate how long each recipe will take to cook,...

We are very excited to be back completing some STEM challenges! STEM activities give us a chance to practise our Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths skills and to have some fun 😊 Check out our first STEM challenge of the year in Ms. Kane’s class below! For our first challenge we were given the task of designing of a tin foil boat that could float while holding a number of cube blocks. It appeared to be an easy challenge at first but it required some careful consideration when it came to designing and making the boat so that it could take the weight of multiple cubes. We...

Welcome to our virtual graduation ceremony for the class of 2021! The slides will be live from 8pm tonight. During the day today, we held a socially distant ceremony in person for our 6th class – sticking to our pods – with a very small number of staff spread out around the hall. This evening, we invite our families and friends to celebrate with us! Our mural this year reflects the time we spent on Zoom. Click on each child’s face to view their individual slideshow of photos from their time in St. Peter’s. Click on the trophy to the left of the mural to watch...

We loved taking part in Wellness Week. It gave us a great chance to discuss our feelings and what we enjoy doing to keep our minds and bodies healthy. We also shared some tips with each other about looking after our wellbeing in the future! We started the week with some Monday Meditation and found that this gave us a chance to breathe before beginning a new week. It’s important to take some time each day to do this. We also thought about some things in our lives that we’re grateful for and completed a ‘Gratitude Jar’ activity. Monday morning meditation! We also...

We had great fun taking part in our recent STEM challenge. We have been learning about climate change, sustainability and also celebrated Engineers Week 2021. To bring all of our recent learning together we decided to make our own eco racers, test how they operate and race them to see what makes them travel fast and in a straight line. We think eco racers might be the future of car design because their friendly to the environment, not using fuel to operate and can be cheap to make! Before we got building, we planned our design based on the materials we knew we would be working with. It’s...

We have been writing some very special letters and postcards in school recently. We were delighted to write to members of our community who are residents in local nursing homes. This year has been difficult for everyone, especially considering visits between families and friends are restricted, and we thought it might be a nice idea to share some letters to spread some happiness! We were delighted when Wicklow County Council Library Service got in touch about Project Postcard and would love to show you some of what we did! Our Post Box in the school corridor. Lots of letters and postcards...

We had a great week celebrating Science Week in Ms. Kane’s class, one of our favourite celebrations of the year! We love taking part in STEM activities on a regular basis and were excited to try lots of new ideas this week. We listened to Professor Luke O’ Neill talking about coronavirus, watched David Attenborough’s new documentary ‘A Life on Our Planet’ and used Lego WeDo! to design our visions for the future. We learned lots about coronavirus by listening to Professor Luke O’ Neill answering questions on RTÉ Junior. Professor O’ Neill is a scientist...
