We learned about the many traditions associated with St. Brigid's Day. We read accounts of people from long ago and we learned about St. Brigid's life. We were fortunate that Mary Angela and Conor remembered to bring in rushes so that we could make our own St. Brigid's crosses!
This week, we focussed on drawing during our Visual Arts class. We drew animals that you would see in Ireland during the winter months.
We welcomed Catherine from the Road Safety Authority to our school today. Catherine discussed the many aspects of road safety with us. We learned about pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle safety. Hopefully, we will all remember and practise road safety at all times.
We welcomed Eddie Lenihan to our school this afternoon. Eddie told us many stories from the local area and he taught us about Inchicronan Abbey and some of the castles in our local area. Third to Sixth Classes really enjoyed the afternoon of storytelling and we are looking forward to Eddie's next visit already!
Thank you to everyone who made last night's Carol Service such a success. Third & Fourth Classes enjoyed learning all the Christmas Carols and pieces of music in preparation for the Carol Service.
We are learning about the counties of Ireland in Geography this month so it was great to test our knowledge using IPads this week. We also tested our skills in identifying countries of Europe and their capital cities.
Today Josephine told us the story of the First Christmas during Godly Play. We are very grateful to have Josephine visit us on regular basis and we really enjoy her stories.
We were tested today on our Hand Hygiene by Barbara from the HSE. Barbara taught us the proper hand washing technique and she told us how easily germs are spread by our hands. Thank you to Ben's mum Barbara for taking the time to visit us.
Lourdes Murphy joined us today to teach us a new hip hop dance. It is wonderful to experience different forms of exercise during our PE lessons.
