Room 27 - Bee Workshop

2nd class were busy little bees recently when Mark Nolan from Biodiversity Ireland visited. The children enjoyed a fantastic 'Pollinator Project' workshop learning about pollinators in Ireland, bee hives and how to help keep our pollinators protected. Children found lots of bees in our school environment and we are going to make a great effort to continue to help bees, butterflies, moths and hoverflies. One of our classmates even became our beekeeper!

Writing Project in Room 24

Today, our class went to visit  Ms. Scally’s Junior Infant class and we read stories that we wrote for them. We spent several weeks writing these stories. When we had finished our final drafts, we illustrated and decorated our books and they all turned out really well. The Junior Infants really enjoyed listening to our stories and we enjoyed the experience!

Sensory Garden Update


We are busy planning for Stage Three of our Sensory Garden project at the moment. We decided to consult with some of our lovely pupils who will use the garden. We asked them to share their ideas of what they would like to see in the space when it's finished. We hope to incorporate their ideas in the final plan which we will share with you soon!

Fitness Circuits in Room 18

The pupils in Ms Sloyan's 6th Class enjoyed fitness circuits in their PE lesson as part of Active Week this week. As you can see from the photos they definitely enjoyed the workout! Well done boys and girls!
