Musical Performance

Published by under School News

Silver Lining Productions came to our school this afternoon. All of the students and staff thoroughly enjoyed this musical performance. We got to see and listen to unusual instruments such as the digeridoo and the french horn. There was a charge of 2 euro per child. Thanks to the parents for sending this money in. The performance was very entertaining. Some students got very involved in the show. Well done to these boys and girls! Take a look at our photostory!

We have our Enrolment Evening this evening. (6.30 pm – 8 pm) We are looking forward to meeting the new Junior Infants and their parents.

Enjoy the long weekend! See you all on Monday 27th February!

Marie Curie and The Solar System

Published by under 3rd & 4th Class

Fourth class have been learning about Marie Curie and The Solar System for the past few weeks.

In history the class learned about Marie Curie’s life, the

work she carried out and her achievements. They then created flip books and timelines based on what they had learned.

In geography we were learning about The Solar System and the Planets. The class created Planet Fact Files, wrote Diary Entries based on ‘A Day in Space’ and they created their own Solar Systems in art. 

Have a look at our photos!

Science -Living In A Material World

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

The children in 2nd class carried out an experiment to see ‘what material would make the best damp course?’ Old houses tend to be damp because they have no damp course. In modern housing, a layer of material is placed between bricks to stop the moisture rising.  The children used sugar cubes, a variety of materials and food colouring for testing. They discovered that plastic was the best damp course and that tissue was the worst.

Valentine’s Day

Published by under 5th & 6th Class,Infants

Ms Egan’s Senior Infants made pots out of clay last Thursday 9th February. Mr Glennon and his 5th class students helped them. Some of the children made heart shaped pots. The next day, the Infants painted the pots. Today they put pink crepe paper inside their pots. Ms Egan gave five mini eggs and five love hearts to each child. They then filled their pots with these. Hopefully the sweets will make it as far as the parents! The children will bring home their pots at 2 O’Clock today. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day so they will give the pots to their parents. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Have a look at our photostory!
