Class Work

We have lovely bright classrooms and we regularly display the children’s work for parents and visitors to look at. As you can see from the blog posts, we are a busy school, learning lots of new and exciting things every day.

Summer arrives in the Junior Room!

We have been learning lots about summer in the Junior Room throughout the month of June. We had fun exploring camping through play. We made play doh and junk art camping items, role played on the campsite & made our own campsites in small world and the sand pit.

We learned all about Summer in different subject areas. We created fingerprint ice-cream cones, drew and coloured summer pictures, went on a summer nature walk & sorted out summer clothes.

For Father’s Day we made ties for our dads drawing pictures of their favourite things on the ties!

Our chrysalides hatched and we had 5 beautiful butterflies in our classroom, we looked after them for a few days before releasing them in our school grounds by the flower beds where they will have plenty of nectar.

We had a Teddy Bear’s Picnic trying summer food, ice-cream and strawberries as well as toasted marshmallows like you’d have camping!

Finally in Science we learned the names of different parts of a plant and all about different materials around us.

Enjoy the summer holidays everyone!

Summer Fun in The Middle Room!

Date posted: 22nd June 2019 | Category Blog, English, Middle Classroom, Physical Education, Science, Sports, Visual Arts |

The month of June has flown by and over the past 3 weeks, we have been focusing on the theme of Summer!  We made crazy flavoured ice pops…

In English, we wrote “Summer Bucket Lists”.  The boys and girls are going to be very busy over the next few months!

To celebrate the wonderful Dads in our lives, we created “Rock and Roll Vests” for Fathers’ Day and gave our Dads special certificates too…

We created Frog Paper weights using stones from our gardens…

In SESE we have been learning about the lifecycle of the butterfly over the past month…

We purchased our own caterpillars to see them transform into butterflies…

Unfortunately, they hadn’t changed into butterflies before school finished for the holidays, so a lucky boy in 2nd class has kindly taken the chrysalides home and will set them free in due course!

On 17th June, we had our sports’ day and all the children received a medal for their efforts in all the races on the day! Well done boys and girls on all your hard work throughout the year. Have a great Summer!

A Busy May in the Middle Room!

Date posted: 6th June 2019 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, Geography, Irish, Middle Classroom, School Outings, Visual Arts |

The month of May has been filled with lots of fun and games in 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class!  After our Easter break, we wrote about all the fun things that we got up to…

In Irish, we learned all about “An Teilifís” and the children drew their favourite programmes…

In Geography, we looked at Ireland as a country and the many geographical features it has.  We discussed the beautiful places to visit throughout the country and the children depicted their favourite places…

In Visual Arts, we looked at the life and works of Claude Monet and the children recreated their own Monet inspired paintings…

We also created “Lighthouse Scenes” in Art…

Can you see who’s looking through the window?!

On Thursday, 23rd May, 1st and 2nd Class went on their school tour to Rathwood and The Chocolate Garden.  We had a great time learning about how chocolate is made and got to taste 4 different types of chocolate.  We then made our own bears or dinosaurs and decorated them.  It was great fun!

We wrote about all the fun things we did back at school…

While we were away, the 3rd Class were having fun and doing lots of Art with Mrs. Kenny….

After their school tour on the 30th May to Dunmore East Adventure Centre, they wrote up reports about all they got up to!

Well done on all your hard work this month boys and girls!

May Fun in the Junior Room!

Date posted: 4th June 2019 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, Junior Classroom, Mathematics, Our Work on Display, School Outings, Science, Visual Arts |

May has been another busy month in the Junior Room. In SESE we learned all about fish & butterflies. We labelled parts of a fish and learned all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We even got our own caterpillars which we’ve watched grow bigger and bigger and turn into chrysalides!


In Art, after reading the book, we made Rainbow Fish using celery to print their scales. We also made bright and colourful butterflies to fly around on our walls.

We enjoyed getting outdoors to do some practical maths activities like finding certain amounts of daisies or leaves in the grounds as well as spotting patterns in nature.

We continue to work hard learning our sounds and tricky words.

We were thrilled to head off to Rathwood on our School Tour in May as well. We went on a train through the woods, made our own teddy bears, met Goldilocks and the Three Bears and had a picnic, finally we headed to the playground for some fun with our friends.

Junior Infants did a great job drawing their favourite activity on the tour!
