4th Class Helicopters – STEAMFebruary 12th, 2018
4th Class conducted an experiment last Friday as part of the STEAM program. They created paper helicopters using a template and they had to perform a number of different tasks. They had to predict before they carried out the tasks. We discovered a lot of interesting things. Pupils were fascinated that even with half a wing the helicopter still rotated.
4th Class Italy ProjectsFebruary 12th, 2018
Pupils in 4th class spent the last number of weeks learning about Italy. They then created some fabulous projects at home and brought them in to show the rest of the classes in the school. They learned some very interesting facts about the country. Did you know that the Vatican City in Rome is the smallest country in the World.

Thursday Note 8th February 2018February 8th, 2018
We hope you are well this week. Our news is as follows
- Senior Infants started Literacy Lift Off this week. This intervention takes place Monday to Thursday for one hour each day for six weeks. Each day the pupils will read a familiar book, a new book, take part in word work, do some writing and work on comprehension activities around the books they are reading. The children work in small groups for Literacy Lift Off and are supported by their class teacher Ms. Kelleher. Ms. Riordan, Ms Fitzsimons, Ms. Hogan and the principal, Ms. Fitzgerald. So far the teachers have been very impressed with the great work that Seniors have done already this week. Keep up the good work Senior Infants!
