3rd & 4th Class Futsal

On Friday 1st December some of the boys and girls from 3rd and 4th class travelled to Kiltoom to take part in the annual Roscommon futsal competition. The tournament was held on the Hodson Bay Celtic astro turf pitch. Our school took part in the large schools competition against Ballybay N.S., Cloonakilla N.S. and Roxboro N.S.

Great skill and determination was displayed by both our boys and girls teams. Our girls team were defeated in their semi final by a strong Ballybay team. The boys team made it to the final and after a close first half they were able to move clear of Cloonakilla in the second half and won the match by 6 goals to 3. This is a great achievement and the boys will receive their medals at a later date.

Girls Squad: Heater Beale, Kate Flynn, Teagan Murphy, Emily Harrington, Keara Mc Coy, Saoirse Mc Teague, Jasmine Mustapha.

Boys Squad: Dan Costello, Conor Fennell, Luke Wheatley, John Timlin, Peter Brennan, Oran Cox, Barra Powell, Ryan Daly, Jake Flynn, Adam Shine Mc Gann.

Energy work-shop

Dara from S.E.A.I did an Energy work-shop in our class yesterday.

We learned all about renewable and non-renewable types of energy.

We made a battery using a potato, zinc, copper and wires. We connected the wires to the metal. We then made a bulb light up.

We played a quiz game at the end, it was fun .

We watched a video about how we can save energy, at home and in school.

Have a read of some useful tips below.

We learned that if we all make small changes, together we will make a big difference.

By; Ms.Rigney’s 3rd class.

Weather and Climate Change

Published by under 3rd & 4th Class

Today 3rd class made rain gauges as part of a lesson on weather and climate change. We used plastic bottles and made cm measures. We placed our rain gauges securely in the court yard weighted with stones. We will record weather data including rainfall over 5 days after Halloween. Have a look at some of our pictures..

Irish History Live

Published by under 3rd & 4th Class

Today Ms.Rigney’s 3rd and 4th class  went to Athlone library to see History coming to life.

Mrs.Dunne came along too.

A man called Michael Moylan presented the work-shop. He was excellent.We had great fun learning all about the Vikings and Normans.

We got to dress up in costumes and armour from the Viking and Norman era’s. We played with swords, shields, helmets and  bows and arrows. We handled lots of artefacts from that period in History. We really enjoyed the trip and learned lots of interesting facts. The librarian gave us a book-mark and sweets when we were leaving.

Have a look at our photos and see History coming to life.

Thanks to Ms.Leydon for organising the trip.

A mile a day…

Our class are taking part in a programme called the daily mile. We run, walk or jog every morning for 15 minutes.  As well as keeping us fit and healthy, studies show that this programme promotes concentration, determination and resilience. It also reduces anxiety and stress as well as improving relationships within the class. We are the first class in the school to start the programme but we hope that everyone will be taking part over the coming months. For more information on all the benefits of this programme, check out
