Room 23 – Science Week – Lego Workshop

Room 23 have really enjoyed Science week! We got stuck into the Bebras challenge, watched a live science show, became engineers in a ‘building bridges’ challenge and much more. The highlight of Science week was the Lego workshop. We had to build a Mini Mars Rover and use coding to give it commands and instructions to make it move and create sounds. We explored the different coding instructions you can give the robot and had a great time doing it! 

Pollinators Talk in 4th Class

Edel Heeran from The Heritage Council came to talk to the 4th class pupils about Pollinators. We were told about the differences between bees and wasps and about the different species and types of bees. Edel is a beekeeper and she brought in her beekeeper outfit to show us and also brought in some of her own honey for us to taste. We really enjoyed learning all about pollinators.

Halloween fun in Room 18

Ms. Foley’s class had great fun doing Halloween baking this week. We really enjoyed making cupcakes and icing them to make them look spooky for Halloween. They tasted delicious too!

Ag obair go dian i Seomra 18


We have settled in well over the last few weeks in Fourth Class. We have been busy performing songs and dramas for our class. We also designed and built boats working on a tight budget! We had to see if they would float. We have been busy helping out in Junior Infants and enjoying Maths Week. We love Mangahigh and we currently have 8 students from Ms. Foley’s class in the top 10 in Scoil Thomáis.

Myths and Legends in Room 17


Room 17 have been busy constructing in the past weeks. While exploring Irish Myths & Legends we created armour and weapons to re-imagine a Celtic battle by the fierce Tuatha Dé Dannan. 

We also designed boats to travel through the Suez Canal while learning about Ireland’s imports and exports. Thankfully our cookies made it ashore!!
