Our School Tour to Newgrange Farm

Posted by: Ms. Cox | June 22, 2017 Comments Off on Our School Tour to Newgrange Farm |

Junior Infants had so much fun at Newgrange Farm!

We held baby chicks.

 

We held a very cute puppy called Rosie.

We also fed the baby lambs some milk.

We saw pigs, cows, horses, rabbits and goats.

We went on a tractor ride and learned all about the crops. We even saw Goldilock’s house and a leprechaun’s house on our ride around the farm!

We loved playing in the sand and water area and going on the toy tractors.

Finally we had a picnic in the lovely sunshine!

Space Project by 4th Class

Posted by: Ms Malone | March 9, 2017 Comments Off on Space Project by 4th Class |

We learned all about space here in 4th class. We created a project on the topic. Did you know that Venus is hotter than Mercury? Or that the youngest person to go to space was 25 years old? We used our creative ideas to make planets using paper mache. Some groups used a stick to allow their solar system to spin. Others used extra masking tape for support. I loved learning about space.

Take a look at the children’s work in the pictures below.

The School Garden

Posted by: emoroney8478 | December 2, 2016 Comments Off on The School Garden |

We’ve got a school garden and we’d like you to know about it!!

This year, some of the classes have been working hard in the school garden. We visit the garden on a Friday. So far we have weeded the flower beds, placed some tyres down to create new planting beds and we have planted some Spring bulbs.

We have lots of exciting plans for the garden as the year continues.

We also have a special visitor who visits us in the garden every Friday – Mr. Robin!! Do you have a robin in your garden?

Here are some pictures from our work in the garden at the beginning of the school year. Enjoy!

Where do you live??

Posted by: emoroney8478 | December 2, 2016 Comments Off on Where do you live?? |

The two first classes have been busy learning about homes. We learnt the names of different types of homes in Ireland – detached, semi-detached, bungalows, apartments, cottages, caravans and terraced houses.

We also looked at pictures of different homes that exist in different parts of the world. In particular, we looked at the Philippines and saw pictures of different homes there. It was really interesting to find out about different homes in the world. We also drew our dream homes in Art and then later created towns with different types of homes in them. Take a look at what we learnt and some of our art!
