Shared Reading

June 6th, 2018

5th class were delighted to welcome Ms Kelleher and Senior Infants who read some of their favourite books for us. Everyone read so well and used their fingers to help them follow their reading. We hope to do some shared reading with them again before they move into 1st class. Thanks Seniors!!


Friends for Life

March 16th, 2018

5th Class have just finished their Friends for Life programme. This programme focused on difficult situations that we encounter in our lives and on how to deal with them best. Instead of ignoring a difficult situation and allowing it to get even harder for us, we looked at ways that we could take the situation and turn it into one which we can manage better. We learned all about emotions, relaxation exercises, looking at different options and seeking support from people close to us. We now feel a lot more confident and know that there is no problem too big that we can’t solve. Thanks to Ms.McGuane who helped Mr Quinn to deliver the programme. We really enjoyed the lessons!


Maths Day 2018

February 12th, 2018

We had a very exciting Maths Day of celebrations today in the school! Every class came up with a couple of different games and presented them to every other class in the halla throughout the day. We had great fun sharing our games with older and younger children. We hope we can have more days like this in the school!!


St Brigids Day 2018

February 1st, 2018

 

There was a real spring in our step this morning so what better way to celebrate the start of spring and St Brigids Day than making our very own crosses. 5th class were delighted to have Ms Hacketts Junior Infant class come to help us and 6th class popped in to make some crosses also. We are going to hang them up in our homes so that they can keep the people of our homes safe. Happy St Brigids Day everyone!


Grandparents Day 2018

February 1st, 2018

 

 

We were delighted to welcome so many grandparents and other family members and friends to our Grandparents Day service earlier today. We had such a large crowd that we had people in every empty space in the hall. Every class told a short story, a poem or sang a song for their grandparents. It was such a lovely morning. We were delighted to get the chance to tell our grannies and grandads how special they are to us in our lives. They are famous now that their photo is up on the internet!!
