Sand letters

In our class we have been busy practicing how to write our letters. Sometimes we use chalkboards and whiteboards. Sometimes we make them out of marla. But today we practiced tracing them in sand. It felt … sandy!

Amazing Apples

We have been learning all week about apples. On Friday we made apple juice and ate apple tart with knives and forks. We feel so grown up.  Then we made apple trees with paint. What a great day.

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday to one of the lovely little girls in our language class. Thank you mum for sending in yummy birthday cake and princess party bags. We had a lovely party.

Our New School Fairy Garden.

The language class were so excited to go outside and explore the fairy garden. We knocked on many fairy doors and rang the fairy bell but so far, none of us have caught a glimpse of the elusive fairies yet. Fingers crossed for next time. We love our new fairy garden.

Our First Week

We had a busy first week in the Language Class. Lots of new things to explore and try out. Check out these fab photos of us.

Bon Voyage

Ms. Aherne’s class and Ms. O Connor’s class flew off on their holidays today. First of all they had to make sure their passports were in order before they could board the plane. The pilot and co-pilot welcomed them on board while the air host served tea and made sure everyone had their seatbelts on. Some children flew to Spain, some to Mexico and some even went as far as Iceland. We hope they make it back in time for school tomorrow.

School Tour

Today, we went to Rumleys Farm on our school tour. We saw lots of farm animals and we even got to rub a baby rabbit and a lamb called Billy. We love the farm.

Active Schools Day Four

What a busy week we have had. On Thursday, some very kind volunteers from St. Finbarr’s Club visited our school to teach us how to play hurling and football. We also had fun in our lovely school garden. We are loving active schools week.

Flash Mob

Check out our Hip Hop Flash Mob in the school yard on Wednesday fro Active Schools Week. Thank you Dayl for teaching us our cool Hip Hop Dancing moves

Active Schools Week

What an action packed week we are having! Day Two was all dancing and all skipping while Day Three was jam-packed with tennis, basketball, rounders, dodgeball, soccer and target practice. We are loving trying out lots of different activities.
