We got into summer holiday mode today! We started off by reading the poem 'Barefoot Days' by Rachel Field and couldn't resist decorating it! Take a look at our creations and happy summer holidays!
Take a look at our beautiful diaries, as promised when we created our puppets! All of the children in room 4 were very busy, helping their puppets write some amazing diaries. This was done in conjunction with learning the days of the week! Everyone worked incredibly hard, describing fantastic adventures with puppets, for one week. The diaries contain beautiful handwriting and lovely illustrations. Well done, Senior Infants.
We made scones in class this morning. They were delicious! Here is the recipe we used from the Odlums website:
City Sports took place on Tuesday 18th June. Everybody enjoyed the day and we had a number of prize winners! Well done to all who participated!
We recently completed projects on tourist attractions around Ireland. We did projects on places such as The Titanic Museum in Belfast, to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin and down to Fota Wildlife Park in Cork. Great work was done by all, well done!
We celebrated our annual Multicultural Day on June 7th. As usual it was a great day with all the various countries in our school being represented. The children worked hard on projects and also dressed up in traditional clothes and brought in some delicious food from their country. We are already looking forward to next years event!
A huge congratulations to our victorious Cumann na Mbunscol boys team who defeated St. Pat's on Wednesday. This was an excellent team performance and a very high standard of Hurling. Special thanks to parents and supporters who travelled on the day to cheer on the boys. Thanks to Mr. Kilgannon, Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Healy for their help and support during the year. Well done boys!
We have been learning a lot about The Normans in 3rd class! As Normans are so well known for their castles, we decided to build our own! Some people decided to put a modern twist on their castles! Well done to all on your amazing work.
We had a tremendous time on our school tour on Wednesday. We visited the Burren Nature Sanctuary and had a wonderful time on the playground, exploring the surroundings and even feeding some animals. !
Today we had a visit from Jennifer and Laura from the charity Hand in Hand. Hand in Hand is a charity that helps the families of children with cancer. They rely entirely on donations so this year the First Holy Communion children decided to very generously donate some of their money to help this charity. Altogether we raised €723.50. Well done and thank you to everyone who donated money. We would also like to thank Jennifer and Laura for taking time out of their busy schedule to come in and speak to us about the work the charity do and how the money will help them.
We went to Let's Go Tours in The Kingfisher in N.U.I.G yesterday. It was a very active fun-filled day. We did lots of activities including human football table, air mountain, rock climbing, zorbing and inflatable slide. It was a great day!
