4th class school tour

Room 9 and Room 3 had a great day at the zoo for our school tour! We especially liked the giraffes.



Active Week 2015 – Day #1

Active Week kicked off this week and Day 1 was full of lots of different activities.

2nd and 3rd classes were with Niamh and Richard in the bottom yard and they were learning all about tennis and practicing their skills. It was great fun and thanks to Niamh for organising all the tennis activities.

The 4th, 5th and 6th classes were in the top yard taking part in lots of different activities. The activities were skipping, wall sit, badminton, soccer dribble, burpees, volleyball, ladder runs, basketball dribble and bowling. Everybody had to try their best at all of the stations. It was hard work but great fun.

Mr Coghlan took some pupils into the yard or extra skipping too!

We’ve started off the week being VERY active!




Room 15 – Waterways trip

Room 15 took a trip to the Waterways Ireland visitors centre last week. We were going to learn more about the waterways of Ireland and the canals in Dublin.

We saw lots of flora and fauna while we walked along the Grand Canal.

Godfrey was our tour guide and he told us all about the canals, barges and locks. Then we got to see some interesting places in Grand Canal Dock and we got to learn all about how the locks work.

It was a really fun, interesting day.

Room 15 – Video chat with their pen pals

The pupils in Room 15 have been emailing their pen pals in Chicago all year and finally they got to see what they looked like this week with a group video chat.

We spoke to our pen pals and chatted about our summer plans.

It was great to put some faces to the names of our pen pals.

2nd class trip to Belgrave Square

Second class went on a trip to Belgrave Park on Friday 12th June. We learned some very interesting facts about the history of Belgrave Square.

We then had great fun taking part in different sports activities including javelin throwing and relay races.

We had a lovely time and it was great preparation for active week!
