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.

4th, 5th and 6th Class have been learning about the 1916 Easter Rising. Local historian Michael Moylan came in to show us some clothes, weapons and discuss events which took place during the Easter Rising.  

We got to look at some of the weapons used during the Rising

We also got to dress up in some of the clothes and act out some of the things which happened during the Rising

We really enjoyed our afternoon learning about The 1916 Rising!

On Tuesday, 28th March, a local historian, Michael Moylan visited Junior & Senior Infants as part of Book Week in the school. The children were told many stories, most notably, the story of Cúchulainn. The opportunity to dress up in costume from various historical eras was a highlight of the day for the children!

The boys dressed up as soldiers and pirates!

 The girls were dressed as ladies in beautiful dresses and of course hats!

The children really enjoyed this interactive history workshop of storytelling and costume. Here are more photos to show off their costumes!

An Irish soldier!

An Egyptian Princess!

A Japanese Princess!

A Fair Lady!

A Country Girl!

A Pirate!

At the end of the session, the children were allowed to wear their costumes back to their classroom for the rest of the Infant Day! This was a real treat and the costumes really made a difference to how hard the children worked! It was great fun and definitely something the children would love to do again!

A Very Different Infant Classroom!

There were 2 winners in Ms. Dennehy’s Classroom too! They were  Will James & Rebecca Neale who drew pictures of their favourite character.

Junior & Senior Infants drew their favourite character and the winning entries were Savannah McCordick & Adam Byrnes.

Well done to all the children who entered! The standard of artwork was very high and picking the winners wasn’t easy for the teachers!
