What amazing costumes we had for World Book Day! It great fun to come to school as someone else!

We were so lucky that 6th class came down to visit us and listen to us read or read to us! It was great to see everyone so focused on reading!

Biodiversity Workshop! 

Dale came in to visit us to talk about biodiversity as it is the last Green Schools Flag we are working towards. Dale read us some lovely picture books and we learned about how important bees are to biodiversity. We also did some bug watching in the classroom which was extremely exciting!

Music in the Classroom – The National Concert Hall 

Rang a dó went on a trip to the National Concert Hall to see ‘Music in the Classroom’ performed by the RTE Orchestra. We had a brilliant time!


We absolutely loved GAA with Jonathan! We did Gaelic football and hurling.

The Water Cycle 

We were learning about the water cycle and so we did this cool experiment of the water cycle in a bag.

Our Beautiful Hares! 

We did some drawing from observation of Albert Durer – The Hare!

The Animal Kingdom 

Using the art form of print we used our hands to create different prints of animals – we have everything from jellyfish to tigers! 

Amazing Art Work! 

We were learning about Ana Serrano and her amazing creations using paper. This inspired us to make our own creations using coloured paper of homes, shops and hotels! 

The Arctic 

In Geography we have been learning about the Arctic. We decided to focus on Arctic animals! 

The Nativity

Ready and waiting to go on stage to perform for our parents at the Christmas Concert.


In science we were learning about filtration! We experimented with filter paper and mucky water! It was messy but we really enjoyed it! 

Homes and Fauvism 

This month we were learning about homes and in art we were learning about the style of fauvism so we decided to combine them!

Dr Osity Body Science Show by Imaginosity! 

Second class loved learning about the body and how the different organs work when Imaginosity came to visit our school!

Happy Halloween!!

Friendship Week Art!

For Friendship week we made some friendship hands or ‘helping hands’ with clay! We had to work together and use our own ‘helping hands’!

Maths Week

For Maths Week we went on a maths trail around the school grounds!


In October, we did some orienteering – we were really good at it!

Gardening and Trees

We have been learning about trees in October and so we went out to inspect the trees on the school grounds. We also spent some time in the school garden – we harvested some kale, carrots and potatoes!



Here we are doing tennis with our coach Stephen. Maybe the next Rodger Federer is in our class!
