What an end to a fantastic year we have had! It was so nice to get back to doing normal activities in school.
After Easter, we took part in the National Credit union quiz hosted on Zoom by Fergal Darcy of Today FM. Some of fifth class also joined us and there was a lot of competition during the quiz!
Both the boys and girls took part in football blitzes in Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale. We played so well as a team and showed great skill on the pitch. Thank you to Johnny Dunne for all the training he did with us throughout the year. Thank you also to Ms Balfry and the parents who brought the kids on the match days.
We were so lucky to have had the expertise of Shaun Barry for GAA skills and team building games. This was great fun- Thank you Shaun!!
6th class hosted a fantastic and fun sports day for the whole school. There were lots of activities organised including a very fun fancy dress relay! We worked very hard on the day and were all tired going home!
Linda, our amazing SNA treated us to a donut morning! They were delicious. Thank you, Linda for all your help and support throughout the year.
On the 15 June we had our school tour in UL sports and adventure centre in Killaloe. We took part in high rope climbing, team challenges, stand up paddling, sailing and canoeing. We had a super day out and luckily the sun was shining. On the way home, we stopped for some food and treats. Thank you to Mrs Wixted, Ms Quinn and Linda for accompanying us on a memorable day out.
We celebrated out 10 Green Flag in Kilcornan NS. Lily and Cathal represented our class on the committee. We had the honour of meeting Declan Hannon and in the after-noon Peter Nash brought the Liam McCarthy cup to school. We also enjoyed ice cream from the ice cream van. A day we will not forget!
To finish out our year we had a pizza party and a lovely Graduation mass celebrated by Fr Donworth. We reminisced with a slide show of memories from Junior Infants to Sixth class.
Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh Rang a Sé!
Sixth Class enjoyed their last tour in primary school in Killaloe Activity Centre on the 15th of June. They had amazing weather on the day which really allowed them to enjoy the variety of team building activities, adventure activities and water sports on offer. Thanks to Ms. Mullane, Linda, Ms. Quinn and Mrs. Wixted for accompanying the class on the day. See the photo gallery for more pictures!
Hello from everyone in Rang a Sé! We have had a brilliant and busy term.
In PE, we explored the Dance and learned the Haka, this is a ceremonial dance in Maori culture. We had lots of fun learning it. We also did relay races and rounders
On one of the cold Friday mornings in January we warmed up with a cup of tea and toast. We enjoyed chatting and catching up with each other. There were lots of debates about Barrys or Lyons!
We were so glad to get back to normal and host Pancake Tuesday for the rest of the school. We divided up into teams and each took responsibility for a station. It was a super fun day.
After a successful Pancake Tuesday, we used more of our cooking skills. We used the equipment that was kindly gifted by Green-schools and An Taisce. We cooked up a storm in our classroom! We made egg muffins, garlic bread, chard salad and mini pizzas.
In Art, we took inspiration from Jackson Pollock and recreated our own pieces. This was so much fun and messy! We also made clay pots, we painted them and will varnish after the Easter holidays.
We explored and learned the poem Midterm Break by Seamus Heaney. We enjoyed this poem and many of our parents remembered learning it also. We worked on Explanation writing and using the school laptops, we typed them out. Our typing skills are improving week by week. We have enjoyed literacy stations with the help of Ms. Quinn.
We are so lucky and delighted to have Johnny Dunne back doing football and hurling every Friday with us. It is so much fun and we are all improving in skill. Thanks Johnny!
On the 24of March, we had an inspiring retreat with Fr Tim Wrenn and El. We did someteam building activities, chatted about ourselves and took time to reflect andpray.
We took to the N69 for the Team Limerick Clean Up. We worked together as a team and picked up lots of rubbish along the road.
We are looking forward to our next and last term in Sixth class.
Beannachtaí na Cásca oraibh! Stay tuned for more updates.
What a super term we have had in Rang a Sé! We had a great term learning lots of new things.
In Literacy, we finished our class novel Wonder and watched the movie together. We also explored Persuasive writing and typed our pieces using the school laptops. We have loved using them and are learning typing skills and we even did some Ratio Maths activities on them. We Have also loved doing class Kahoot quizzes on them.
We had great fun during science week. We worked hard on experiments and loved showing the rest of the class our experiments. As part of Green schools we planted lots of herbs and have been growing our herbs both indoors and outdoors. We are also growing mushrooms. We have picked our first batch and took them home to cook with. We are working hard to mind what we planted and take turns watering them each week. We Explored the Titanic in History and took a virtual tour of the ship.
We have enjoyed doing lots of Christmas Art activities. We created a lovely collaborative collage for the hallway. We had so much fun making chocolate sleighs, we were very creative and artistic!
We had a fun visit to Santa and thank you to our Parents Council for the fun goody bags they gifted us.
We did Secret Santa again in Sixth Class. We had great fun exchanging gifts and everyone got a thoughtful present.
We are looking forward to Christmas and a well-deserved break!
Nollaig Shona agus Athbhliain faoi Mhaise Daoibh!
