Welcome to Fifth and Sixth class! We have had such a busy term but we worked hard and had lots of fun. September was busy settling back!
On the 4th of October we were lucky to participate in a LEAF workshop in Curraghchase with Rachel and Ray from An Taisce. LEAF(Learning about forests) is a fun way for us to learn about our forests and natural environment.
We are also very lucky to be taking part in Vexrobotics sponsored by DELL. We will learn about Science Technology Engineering and Maths ( STEM) while having fun! We will design, build, program and compete with our robot in a super competition organised by DELL. Thanks to Úna Murphy ( Fionn & Darragh’s mom) for her enthusiasm and help!
We had super fun during maths week. We took on a challenge to build bridges using spaghetti! We loved taking part in our maths trail and lots of fun activities.
The Wizard of Oz is in full swing in our classes. We are busy learning our lines and practising for the stage! We have loved our classes with Kate every week.
In art we took inspiration from Jackson Pollock and created our own pieces. We had lots of fun and loved the clean up!!

The Glen Resource Centre in Co. Cork hosted pupils from Junior Infants to Sixth Class for our school tour this year. With different activities catering for the various classes, pupils enjoyed a wide variety of games from snowtubing and zip wire to trampolining and zorbing. We were extremely fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day and the feedback from pupils was very high! As usual, the professionalism and efficient manner in which The Glen is run ensured a fantastic day for all!
Happy New Year! We have hit 2018 with a great start! We have started literacy and numeracy stations. We are all working very hard together!We also started our class novel ‘ Reaching The Heights’.

The boys and girls of Kilcornan had a great Pancake Tuesday thanks to Ms. Mullane and her sixth class! All pupils visited the community hall during the day where Ms. Mullane, Mrs. Quinn and Ms. O' Keefe were cooking delicious pancakes. Sixth class pupils were responsible for serving, clearing tables and taking charge of all money exchanged. Pupils chose from a variety of treats including pancakes, popcorn, jellies, juice and chocolate. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it a great success!
