Easter Egg Hunt

All the children had loads of fun searching the school for their paper Easter eggs. Some of the pupils even solved riddles to help them find their hiding spots! Their reward for finding their egg was a delicious chocolate egg! Many thanks to the Parents’ Association for providing both the paper and chocolate eggs. Do you recognise any chick or bunny below????

Beanstalks

The pupils in the junior room planted broad beans and designed beautiful castles in the clouds for the beans to grow towards. Hopefully with lots of care from their owners, the bean stalks will reach the castles in no time!

Na Muca Beaga

We had great fun this month learning the story of Na Muca Beaga. We told the story with stick puppets and also used masks to make a little film version of the story re-told by us as Gaeilge. See our little snippets here!

Those were the days...

We examined some wonderful objects that people used to use in the past but we no longer use. It’s amazing what people can find in their houses! Some of the children brought in an old bike lamp, an old telephone and an old phone and MP3 player.

The senior room pupils helped the junior room pupils to use the 'I can animate' app on the tablets. Using the rockets and backgrounds that the juniors made themselves, they created fabulous animations.

Teddy Bears in SPACE.....

We had a teddy bears' picnic in space! We learned so much about space and the planets throughout January. We made space passports and also helmets to protect us on our journey. We saw the planets and the sun when we went to space and it was wonderful because we knew so much about them!

Junior Room Bake-off.....

The Junior Room had a wonderful baking afternoon on Thursday, 18th October. They prepared delicious biscuits for baking. Having been baked overnight, they were returned to the school the next morning for decorating. Not too sure how many biscuits made it home for tasting, but I am sure if you didn't happen to try one you would agree they were absolutely delicious!
