5th and 6th class went on a trip to Glasnevin Cemetery. We had a tour guide who showed us the graves of some historical fugures in Irish history, such as Daniel O’ Connell, Michael Collins and Eamon De Valera. We heard stories of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War and rebellion!
We learned lots of information and we had a great day!

Nuair a bhíonn báisteach an – trom is féidir linn a rá…

Tá sé ag stealladh báistí.

Má tá sé ag stealladh báistí caitheann a lán daoine cótaí báistí chun fanacht tirim.

This month in Senior Infants we transformed our Aistear roleplay into a potion lab. We had lots of fun making potions and spells buy combining our different ingredients to make our disgusting potions.

In the play dough area, we made trick or treat sweets, a witch’s broomstick, a web for a spider and lots of other Halloween themed items!

Our other Aistear station was carving pumpkins, Senior Infants did a brilliant job taking out all the seeds and cleaning the pumpkin.

We made a lot of Art for Halloween, check it out below.

During Maths Week one of the activities we did was making Pattern hats which we could wear. We made AB and ABC patterns.

Finally, on the last day before the midterm we had a Halloween party where we dressed up, danced to music and made spooky eye chocolate apples!

6th class were very lucky to have Mrs. Doyle teaching them for the past few weeks. We took part in fantastic lessons and learned so much! We studied themes such as sustainability and the environment, autumn and our local area and took part in such fun, interactive Gaeilge lessons!

We also took part in some great debates, learned how to sew and presented reports we drafted to the whole class. Thank you so much to Mrs. Doyle, we hope you can come back to visit us soon!

We had a great time celebrating Maths Week 2022 in 6th class and took parts in lots of fun activities!

We thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Maths Week Mini Quiz with Franz
Schlindwein, on Zoom. There were lots of interesting questions and we practised the day before with some fun brain teasers – see if you can have a go here:

Do you know the answers?
Problem solving skills in practise!

Then we took part in a Maths trail in the school and yard areas, that involved putting our Maths skills to the test.

We split into groups and followed the instructions as accurately as possible.

The trail involved measuring, calculating area and perimeter, observing and tallying results of data collected, measuring and recording time and comparing results with other teams to determine accuracy!
