Senior Classroom

The 4th, 5th and 6th class are taught by Ms. Wilson. They have a large, airy, bright classroom with lots of space. With 5 computers and a laser printer in the classroom, they are often busy completing projects and looking up information on the internet. Like all the other classrooms, the senior classroom has an interactive whiteboard which the children thoroughly enjoy using!

Funky Kids – Senior Classroom

Date posted: 7th March 2011 | Category Drama, Funky Kids, Senior Classroom |

At the end of March, we will perform a show.  Every week Denis and Olivia come to our school on a Friday. They teach us dance moves and some songs. They pick a topic to teach each classroom. 

We made our own costumes and with the help of Denis and Olivia, we painted a huge backdrop. 

We also played games and acted out scenarios.  It has helped our self confidence and imagination skills. 

We are all looking forward to the show at the end of March.

The Irish Famine

Date posted: 20th February 2011 | Category History, Senior Classroom | Tagged , |

For the past few weeks we have been learning about the Irish famine. We found out that half of the population of Ireland either emigrated or died. All of the potatoes died from blight and people sometimes had to eat grass and nettles.

1847 was the worst year of the famine, knwn as ‘Black ’47’. Some people had no option but to leave their homes and go to the workhouse for food and shelter. 

We also read the book ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ which was a story about three children called Eily, Michael and Peggy O’Driscoll. The book tells about their life during the famine.

Autumn Nature Walk

By Holly and Rebecca

In October we went for a lovely nature walk down in Castlecomer Discovery Park. Miss Power’s class and Miss Wilson’s class took part in this walk. We looked at all the different types of leaves and trees.

We also saw many types of nuts and berries such as acorns, holly berries and horse chestnuts.

We saw some happy ducks and geese. It was a lovely day out.
