We moulded our clay to form pinch pots.


When the pots were dry we painted them.


Our finished pinch pots :)



Thank you to Thomás Ahern for bringing Liam the lamb to school. We learnt so much about lambs and sheep.


Liam the lamb was a welcome visitor to our school today.


Our first walk to the shop this school year. We worked hard to get to the shop. We had a target and we achieved it.


Our trip to the shop was a success. Plenty of sweets and treats were bought. A huge thanks to our local shop and Elaine for being so patient and kind.

Our School Garden

Today we began to reform our school garden. With the help of Tim the sixth class planted lettuce and cauliflower.

Our School Garden

The sixth class will look after the school garden, help the younger classes in the school with their vegetable patches, update the gardens art work and hopefully grow some vegetables :)





Wednesday 16/03/22 we went swimming. We were so excited to be leaving school. We were even more excited to be on a bus again. Swimming was a huge success. We have five weeks of swimming to look forward to.





Sixth Class have worked incredibly hard over the past three weeks completing their projects. The children could choose any country in the world for their project. The children displayed their projects using google slides. power- points, charts and flip- charts. Each child presented their project to the class. Each project was undertaken at home. This is our second project this year. Our first project was based on entrepreneurs worldwide.

Our Spring collage took three weeks to complete. The Spring collage is an outstanding piece of art created by all of the sixth class students. It is on display in the school corridor. We creatively discussed what we would draw on the collage. Each child either drew or painted at least three times on the collage. We collaborated and enjoyed the creative process. Our Spring Collage is a credit to our talented sixth class.

There was great excitement today when Pat Spratt our GAA Coach arrived to school . The children had great fun practicing football drills and playing games. We can't wait for next week. Thank you Pat.



Beannachtaí Lá Fhéile Bríde. Today we made St. Brigid 's Crosses. We learnt all about St. Brigid and the importance of the cross.

St. Brigid’s Blessing

May Brigid bless the house wherein you dwell

Bless every fireside every wall and door

Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof

Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy

Bless every foot that walks its portals through

May Brigid bless the house that shelters you.

This month we have been learning about the theme of 'The Polar Regions'. We have been learning about the polar regions during history, geography and science. We have studied The Arctic Circle, Antarctica, exploration, ice, Roald Amundsen and Tom Crean.
