Inspired by an idea for World Book Day, Mrs. Kearney's class decided to write their own personal stories for the girls in Ms. Flynn's 1st class. The 6th class girls had also built up a rapport with the younger children as they had been listening to their reading every Friday for the past few months. In preparation for writing the story, they interviewed a child in order to find out a bit more about them; their interests/ hobbies, friends and family. The information they gathered was sprinkled throughout the story they created; much to the delight of the younger children. It was a very worthwhile exercise and thanks to Mrs. Kearney and her girls for their unique stories.

The girls in Ms.Delany's 6th Class have been busy over the past few months working on their knitting and have now completed some beautiful pieces! Well done girls!

Also included in this album are photos of other Art and Crafts completed by the girls including painted canvas bags. 

As you can see from the photos the girls had so much fun using Tangrams in Maths!

The two 6th classes enjoyed a flower arranging class on Friday last where they made up individual flower arrangements to give to their Mums for Mother's Day. A big thank you to Catherine who offered the class to the girls. The girls put in a huge effort to make the finished arrangements! Happy Mother's Day!

Tháinig an grúpa ceoil Airneán isteach inniú. Sheinm siad ceoil tradisiúnta. Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as an lae. Bhí siad ar fheabhas!

The trad group 'Airneán' came in during SnaG to give workshops to each of the classes. The girls got the opportunity to sing and dance along to traditional Irish tunes.

Ms.O'Donovan's 4th class have been busy at work completing projects on the Maori People of New Zealand. The girls, working together, carried out lots of research and then complied their findings into their project books.

 

  

Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as an tseachtain seo! 

We had a great week of craic agus sparoi sa scoil as each of the classes made a huge effort for Seachtain na Gaeilge. Throughout the week the girls made an extra effort to speak as Gaeilge in their classes, in the corridors and in the school yard. 

On Tuesday, we had a ceilí in the halla where each of the classes performed an Irish Dance. On Wednesday, we had the trad group visit the school to give workshops to the classes. On Thursday we had 'Lá Glas' with the children and teachers wearing green! The classes came together in the hall to perform some very popular Irish songs with actions!

'Míle Buíochas' to Ms.Kearney for coordinating the week and to all the teachers who prepared the children for the activities.
