In third class we have several ‘budding artists’. The class really enjoys our Visual Art classes and create some very imaginative and artistic pieces of work. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }

We had great fun on Shrove Tuesday sampling some pancóga in school. We had a choice of adding sugar, Nutella and keeping in line with our Food Dudes initiative-strawberries and blueberries. There were smiles all round as we enjoyed our delicious treat! #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }

As part of our aim to receive our first Active Schools Flag this year we began doing 10 minutes of exercise every morning at 10am. Every class from Junior Infants to Sixth class is taking part and we are all really enjoying it so far. As the days and weeks pass, the routines are getting harder and harder but our fitness levels are gradually improving! Every night we receive Physical Education homework and are following the ‘Super Troopers- Get Active’ initiative. We hope all children and parents are benefiting from the increased levels of fitness. #gallery-3 { margin:...

We have been learning about ‘Games in the past’ in our History lessons during January. As a treat on Tuesday 30th January, 3rd classes students brought in their favourite board game. Over fifteen different games arrived to our classroom that day! At 2pm we recorded the names of the games on our whiteboard and took a vote to establish the six most popular games. We made a tally chart to record our results. Among the winners were Monopoly Irish Edition, Scotland Yard, Game of Life, Monopoly Gamer, 5 Second Rule and Card games. The children were then split into groups to start participating...

Unfortunately we haven’t been lucky with our weather recently and because of the wet conditions the class have had to stay inside at lunch time. However, this has given us the opportunity to try out and learn some new games. One in particular that has been really popular is chess, as well as a block building game. Look at the children at play! #gallery-6 { margin: auto; } #gallery-6 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-6 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-6 .gallery-caption { margin-left:...

All classes took part in very successful gymnastic classes taught by Ms. Wyer. This is Ms. Wyer’s third year teaching the gymnastic classes in the school and she commented that the children are improving their balance and coordination every year. Keep up the good work! #gallery-8 { margin: auto; } #gallery-8 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-8 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-8 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }
