Third and Fourth Class treated their peers to a showcase on Friday 29th September. Having studied birds, their lifestyles and their eating habits during S.E.S.E lessons, they set about designing and creating their own bird feeders. Pupils worked extremely hard on the steps involved, from design to final product and displayed the bird feeders for the whole school to come and see. They were able to expertly explain the process of their design to all the curious visitors and should be very proud of what they produced. Well done 3rd and 4th!
Another school year is upon us! Welcome back to everybody in 3rd and 4th class. The boys and girls have got off to a great start this year with everyone making super efforts to impress their teacher Ms. Mann. The pupils have been working hard and behaving their best, thus earning ‘Stars’ for their groups. We have had some birthdays to celebrate already this month with John, Darragh, Sophie (and Ms. Mann) all having birthdays fall in the same week. We resumed Zumba lessons with Avril and had a fantastic time doing Zumba outdoors on the Astroturf. We also started learning about ‘Fionn and the Salmon of Knowledge’ and next will be investigating the difficult tests that young warriors had to pass in order to become a member of the Fianna. We had great fun with our Maths Stations earlier this week, with pupils co-operating and communicating in their groups and making the learning really fun. We have lots more to look forward to over the coming weeks and months so check back for updates and photos.
The countdown is on for summer holidays!! It has been a busy term in 3rd and 4th class and the boys and girls have all worked really hard throughout the year. We introduced PAT stations and Mata sa Rang activities this year which the pupils thoroughly enjoyed. We engaged in a number of STEM challenges during the course of the year and the pupils were challenged to work in groups to complete the task at hand. There were some fantastic projects completed on a whole range of topics from Lego to Barak Obama and everyone enjoyed presenting their project to the class. Tensions were high on numerous occasions throughout the year with our oral Spelling and Tables games (‘SPARKLE’ and ‘King of the Tables’) but it is safe to say that everyone enjoyed the bit of competition. We have had so many highlights from this year including Peace Proms, a visit from the Mayor of Limerick, Skipping workshop with Lee, visits from Munster players Duncan Casey and Séan McCarthy and our recent School Tour to UL Sports Arena to name but a few. The pupils were also so lucky to learn first-hand about the work of firemen when Foynes Fire Brigade came to visit this term. Now it’s time to wrap up the year with O’ Donoghue and Kelly Cup matches and enjoy our last few days in school before the holidays. Don’t forget check out pictures of our work and activities in the Photos section.
A big congratulations to the pupils of 3rd and 4th class who came in second place in the recent Credit Union Schools Quiz. Well done to Isabel Fitzgerald, Conor Mc Namara, Fionn Murphy and Finn O'Gorman!
