First Class Write-A-Book 2019May 12th, 2019
What an experience the children had during the Write-A-Book process this year. They learned to plan a piece of work, draft it, edit it (more than once) , illustrate it and publish their own text. We sent our books off to be judged by another teacher in West Clare and we enjoyed viewing their entries for the competition too. We had three winners from our class chosen to receive a presentation from the Clare Education Centre in the Auburn Lodge on Tuesday 7th May ~ Chloe Mullan, Daithi Lynch and Ruby McCormack. Once we received our books back the whole class was presented with their certificates by Ms. Fitzgerald at Cruinniu last Friday. The children also had the fantastic opportunity to have an ‘Author’s Presentation’ to every class in the school. They got to discuss their books with children from other classes. They had a fantastic afternoon! Thank you to all the parents who helped the children through the process.

1st Class Getting Fit!!May 10th, 2019
First Class have been making a super effort to improve their fitness levels. We have been running every day and have nearly reached our target of running to Wales!! The children love this time out of the classroom and we definitely have seen an improvement in everyone’s fitness levels across the board!! Even on wet days when we don’t get outside the children get to do exercises in the classroom. Let’s keep it going everyone!!!!
Having fun coding Bee Bot!May 8th, 2019
1st Class children teamed up with 5th class and had super fun learning to code Bee Bots. Children learned all about directions and took turns moving Bee Bot around a maze, tracing numbers, Maths trails, etc. It was a great start in learning to code for the children.
