Santa was so nice to all the boys and girls of Junior Infants. Mrs. Claus joined in with our Christmas carols.
We had a great day at Crag caves on Monday. Santa and Mrs.Claus gave us a very warm welcome. We sang some Christmas Carols for them and played and played and played.
We completed our project with ‘Sea Syenergy’ recently. The class did a super job and learned a lot about the affects of marine pollution. The marine biologists visited us twice. On the second occasion, they showed us a powerpoint on whales and dolphins and will return in a few week with an aquarium for the classroom. Well done 3rd class!
WE had great fun during Maths week recently.
Well done to 3rd class on keeping up their marathon challenge. They are doing great and increasing their fitness levels day by day….!
We were busy making some lovely pumpkins for Halloween.
We completed two science experiments recently and demonstrated them for fourth class. Fourth class also showed us their experiments. We have some budding scientists in our midst!!!
We are progressing nicely through our fit4class athletics programme. The pupils are having great fun so far and are enjoying the games and activities involved.
Fourth Class recently received a fabulous selection of books organised and presented to them by Ms. Ann. The children created wonderful books using storybird when they were in Third Class. The books were purchased for their library from the profits made on the books. A special thanks to Ms. Ann for adding many great new additions to our library.
Fourth Class display their wonderful talents during Maths Week. The pictures speak for themselves.
Happy Halloween from Fourth Class

Ms Ann welcomed first class back. They had lots of news, having enjoyed a great summer. They got straight down to work/fun, exploring the properties of tens and making number stories with manipulatives.
They are adorable! We all got to rub their soft fluffy down. It was a long wait for ‘Joey’. Chick 2 arrived two days later, at ‘sos beag’. The teachers were more excited than we were, nearly!. Ms Mary calls Chick 2 ‘Goldie’. But Ms Noelle says it’s a democratic decision. We will call her ‘Tiny’. We can’t wait for tomorrow.
We wish all our children in Sixth all the gifts and strength of the Holy Spirit.
Mr Liam gave us an incubator filled with eggs. They ‘are due’ this week!!! What will we do, if they hatch during the hols?. We gently turn them every day two times. Ms Noelle thinks the names we are thinking of for our Easter Chicks are perfect. But we haven’t fully decided yet, until EACH ONE hatches…..
We are so proud! It was wonderful that all our parents found the time this morning to celebrate our published books and to have a cup of tea, served by Ms Anne Moore and Ms Noreen. They even got to taste some of our teacher’s banana cake……a recipe which is a secret! This was the first day that we actually got to hold our printed books. It was soooo exciting.
Here are some pics of the wonderful art displayed in our classroom and beyond.
Fifth and Sixth Classes created beautiful bicycles from recycled materials as part of our Green Schools Project on Transport🚲. It’s time to get back on our bikes, now that Spring is here. Be safe and be seen🚦
Design Challenge Busy at work . Planning , designing and creating Lego cars Working as a team Plenty of discussion on the best way forward. Smiles of delight as plans fall into place. Now for the real test. Which car will travel the fastest or the longest distance ???? Ready, Steady , Go. We might need to go back to the drawing board so that our cars can travel faster.
Thanks are due again to our parents for dropping and collecting Third Class. Ms Ann, the ‘Bramble Club’ and Coillte led the children to our planting spot.One tree for each child. Gillian Wharton and Joan co-ordinated the whole event. It was a wonderful activity for all.
High energy levels. Syncronised movements. Great fun
Our Infants love books!Make sure you find the time to read to them every day….because they are worth it!
Sixth Class were involved in everything this week! They gladly read books to our younger pupils on World Book Day. On Friday they participated in an Engineering Workshop with Mr Jones. This was hosted by Kerry Library for Engineering Week 2017. Many thanks to all the organisers. Ms Gillian’s class really enjoyed the demonstration and the marshmallow challenge.
There was great excitement around the school today as we dressed up as characters from our favourite books. Senior pupils read to Junior pupils and shared their favourite Book with them. Fourth class paired with Senior Infants and really enjoyed the experience. Two children engrossed in a book. Mr.Bump even met another Mr.Bump. Can you believe it!!! </
