Fishing by the Lough!

On a recent class trip to the Lough we saw a 9.5kg carp caught by a local fisherman. It was the first ever fish caught by the man and he returned it to the water after weighing it and taking some pictures.

Nathan’s Birthday

There was big excitement in the class today. Nathan was 8 on Saturday. His mom dropped in a big bag of goodies and a cake. We all had a party. Nathan wore the birthday hat and blew out the candles. We had fun playing musical statues. It was all over too soon. Our friends from Ms Allen’s class had to go home.

Our School Tour

We had a beautiful day in Rumley’s farm today. We saw all the animals, played in the playgrounds, ate lunch and had a ride on the tractor. We saw a cow being milked and we gave a lamb some milk. We met the farmer Mr Rumley. We walked all around the farm. I bet we will sleep well tonight!

The theme for the second flag was energy.

Turning the sod and raising the green flag!

Today the Lord Mayor Mr. John  Buttimer came to our school to turn the sod on our new building extension.

Show Time!

We hope you enjoyed our show on Friday. We had lots of fun. Here are the songs and poems that we performed. Maybe you might like to say them at home too. We started with a dance from Africa. Then we did Row, row, row your boat and A sailor went to sea, sea, sea. Then we danced the Hocaí Pocaí in Irish. We then recited the poem Slippery Fish and we finished our show off with the Chicken Dance. Rehearsals have started for our next show already!
