Engineer’s Week 2022

Senior Infants had fun designing and making during Engineer’s Week.

We had fun exploring balance, measurement, strategy, prediction, discussion and teamwork.

Engineering week 5th-11th March 2022

As part of Engineers week, 4th class received a visit from “Anyone 4Science” where they learned to make a force metre and test the strength of jelly sweets. They learned about pulling forces, fair testing and reliable testing. Most importantly they learned how strong jelly sweets can be!! 🤣🤣

Seachtain na Gaeilge 🇮🇪

A fantastic week of learning Gaeilge in various ways. From learning the famous Haka, writing stories and finishing it off with a Kahoot quiz on the school iPads. Have a look at our Seesaw to see our rendition of the Haka Gaelach. Prizes all round for excellent participation. Maith sibh! ☘️☘️

Engineering Week 2022

Rang a dó finished off Engineering Week with a visit from Anyone4Science. The children loved exploring whether Rapunzel could use sweets to get down from her tower. Using water to test the force required, we experimented to see when the sweet would break. Great fun was had! A big thanks to Mrs. Cunnane for organising the workshop.

Gymnastics

Gymnastics began on Monday the 21st of February. The children will be completing six gymnastic sessions with two external teachers. 6th class have thoroughly enjoyed their sessions so far.

Houses and Homes 🏡

Our theme for the month of January was Houses and Homes. We learned all about the different types of homes people live in, and learned lots of new language related to homes and houses.

During Aistear time, the senior infants used lots of the new language they had learned while role-playing that they were working in an Estate Agents.

The students built very impressive homes during the construction station.

The senior infants also used a variety of different recycled materials in the Junk Art station to create beautiful homes.

Well done senior infants!

Sciath na Scol is back!

We are absolutely delighted that Sciath na Scol has returned this year! Well done to all in 5th and 6th class for showing excellent enthusiasm at training. We are looking forward to our upcoming hurling, camogie and football matches!

Titanic Projects

6th Class recently completed and presented their ‘Titanic’ projects to the class. Many Titanic books and resources were brought into school. The children were split into group. Each group researched their project at home and in school using iPads. Each group designed, constructed and presented their own project to the class. Additionally, some groups designed a PowerPoint presentation. Well done 6th Class!
