Summer Fun in the Junior Room

Date posted: 27th June 2022 | Category Blog, Class Work, Drama, English, Geography, Junior Classroom, Local Visits, Music, Our Work on Display, Science, SPHE, Sport, Visual Arts |

The last few weeks in school have been full of learning and activities in the Junior room. We learned all about the Garden Centre in Play.

Role playing in The Garden Centre
Making Play Doh flowers – Lilacs
Roses and Morning Glory
Gladioli
Building Patio Furniture to sell in the Garden Centre
Building A Garden Centre in Small World

In SESE we learned all about the country of Italy, we discussed landmarks, food and where Italy is located. We also learned about fish, things we do at the seaside, the season of Summer and starfish.

We also made butter from cream. We shook the bottle for a few minutes and slowly but surely it turned into butter!

In Art we made sunflowers using tea leaves to create the centre of them and ice cream cones for Summer from puffy paint.

To tie in with the Garden Centre we also sowed some sunflowers for our own gardens.

To celebrate the season of Summer we had a Teddy Bears Picnic with ice-cream and strawberries and played some outdoor water activities and games.

In SPHE we learned all about road safety and practiced crossing the road safely at the Pelican Crossing in town and outside our school.

In English we continued to learn our Tricky Words and in Music listened to the song “Under the Sea” and drew pictures in response to it.

Wishing everyone a fun and happy Summer and see you at the end of August!

Hello Summer!! From all in the Middle Room :)

Date posted: 22nd June 2022 | Category Blog, English, Middle Classroom, Religious Education, Science, Visual Arts |

It is hard to believe we are at the end of another term! It has been a busy one, so have a look at what the boys and girls in First, Second and Third class have been up to!!

In English, we wrote about our school tour at the end of May. The children had a great time in Dunmore East and Rathwood..

We also read a story called “Flower Power” in Religious Education, which tells us about telling the truth and saying sorry when we do something wrong.

In Science, we learned all about the Solar System, and read a poem called

“Funny Space Rhymes”…

In Gaeilge, we learned and wrote about “An Sorcas.”

In Visual Arts, we learned about the life and work of Monet and made our own version of “Waterlilies”….

We also made minibeasts out of clay…

We created lovely “Lighthouses” and learned all about these structures along our coast….

To mark those important Dads in our lives, we created “Footprints” and cards…and had so much fun making them!!!

We created “Rock n Roll Vests” with very cool designs!

First and Second class wrote about the Summer and facts about the season…

We enjoyed a picnic outside with the Infant classroom and enjoyed strawberries

and ice-cream!

We drew pictures of our favourite memory from the year…

We hope you all have a wonderful Summer! See you all at the end of August!

Sports’ Day Fun in the Sun!

Date posted: 17th June 2022 | Category Blog, Junior Classroom, Middle Classroom, Physical Education, Senior Classroom, Sport, Sports, Swimming |

On Friday, 17th June, we had a wonderful sports’ day filled with exciting, challenging and a few silly races! First up was the sprints. Infants had to sprint 20 metres, 1st, 2nd and 3rd had to run 40 metres and 4th, 5th and 6th had to run 60 metres! After that was the hurdles. Then we had the egg and spoon race! We finished with the sack race and the three-legged race! Let’s have a look at some of the fun things that happened on the field today! Ready, steady, go!

We then had to have a nice ice-cream to cool down after all that hard work!

It was soon time for the award ceremony, where all children were presented with certificates for their efforts in swimming over the past 8 weeks. Well done boys and girls! Each child also received a medal for their efforts on sports’ day. 6 pupils received a trophy for being a great sports girl/boy throughout the year, showing a great attitude, teamwork and enjoyment when playing games. Well done to Oscar, Kayla, Áine, Karol, Theo and Ariana! We hope you all enjoyed sports’ day 2022!

Have a great Summer everyone!

School Tour Fun for 1st & 2nd Class!

Date posted: 31st May 2022 | Category Blog, Middle Classroom, School Outings |

On Thursday, 26th May, Junior Infants to Second Class headed off on tour to The Chocolate Garden and Rathwood. They had so much fun! Here are some lovely photos of the day…

We first listened to Laura talk about how chocolate was made. We watched a video and learned about where cocoa beans are grown. We got to sample lots of chocolate which was really fun!

We then got to make our own frogs and chicks. We had to paint the inside of the moulds with white chocolate and then milk chocolate was poured into the moulds which were then placed in the freezer to set!

Afterwards, we had lunch and hopped on the train for a ride round the forest!

Dennis, our train driver gave us some bread to feed some friends we met along the way!!

We then hit the playground for a few minutes before we had to leave…

The boys and girls were so good on the day! We hope everyone had lots of fun!
