3rd Class Trip

Published by under 3rd & 4th Class

Today 3rd class paid a visit to Meehambee Megalithic Tomb and to Nure wakehouse or ‘Caoinne Marbh’. We were very lucky with the weather!. There was a lovely pathway to the tomb and we could smell the wild garlic. We also passed signs which told us all about the flora, fauna and birds to be found in Drum. Mr. Anton Lennon and Mr. Jimmy Moore told us about the local history. We thought the wakehouse was creepy! We really enjoyed our visit and we would love to go back again. Have a look at our photos…

Lá Glas

We really enjoyed “Lá Glas” today. 

Ms  Rigney’s 5th class read a novel as Gaeilge a few weeks ago. 

Mrs  Conway wrote a drama based on the book, and we performed it today. It was called  “An nathair agus Na Spéaclaí.” We really enjoyed it! It was great fun. 

Each class performed a “cluiche clós” or a “playground game.” 

 

Mr . Glennon : Caith agus Síos 

Ms . Dooley : A Gharda , A Gharda 

Mr . Keller : Chuaigh Mamó chun an tsiopa 

Ms . Egan & Mrs .Finn : Teidí  Béar      

Mrs.Dunne :  Ceann, gulalainn, glúin is cos

Mrs. O Connell : Isteach is amach trí na cloginí gorma

Ms . Quigley : Taobh le chéile 

Ms. Payne : Míonna na Bliana 

Mr . Dolan : Téigh abhaile 

                      Míonna na Bliana

 

Then our school band, “Banna Ceoil “,  played some traditional Irish tunes . They were excellent ! 

Five girls did some Irish dancing.

We would like to wish you all a very “Happy St . Patricks Day ”

“Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig daoibh go léir” 

Slán libh!

Today as part of engineer’s week 3rd class took part in an egg drop challenge. Our challenge was to create an egg cradle using straws and sellotape and to drop the egg from a height without breaking or cracking the egg. We had 4 successes out of 6. Some even wrapped the egg in the sellotape to act as a cushion.We placed our eggs in a lunch bag to prevent a mess!Have a look at our photos…
