Baking with Grainne

Last Thursday, we made brown bread rolls with Grainne.  She brought in milk, flour, salt and baking powder for us to use.  We had to work together at our tables, taking turns to mix the ingredients before forming our own bread rolls.  

Student Council Egg Hunt

To coincide with all our learning about Spring, new life and orienteering in P.E. the Student Council organised an egg hunt for all the children in the school. It took a lot of work and organisation. And it took a lot of will power not to eat all the eggs before the hunt.

We had an egg hunt in the courtyard for Senior Infants and 1st class. They had to run to a cone and try and find eggs hidden under them but there wasn’t an egg under ever cone so they had to keep trying. Some of the teachers even got involved.

   

We had our egg hunt for older classes out the front. Each group had to follow their group name to all the right cones to find a 3 digit combination. This combination was then used to open a combination lock where their eggs were. We had lots of fun organising the egg hunt and all the boys and girls had fun too.

        

March Fun!

In March, we have been busy scientists preparing for our Science Fair. We had so much fun creating our amazing lava lamps.

         

 

     

We also made balloon powered cars by using some recycled materials. We had great fun racing them.

                

 

March in Katie’s 1st Class

March was a very exciting month in 1st class.

Bhí Féile na Gaeigle ar siúl. Bhí sé go hiontach! Labhraíomar Gaeilge i rith an lae agus tháinig feabhas mór ar ár gcuid líofachta! Is aoibhinn linn Gaeilge i rang a hAon agus bhí a lán spórt agus spraoi againn i rith Féile na Gaeilge. Thug Katie duais gach lá don Ghaeilgóir is fearr. Bhí tráth na gceist againn agus bhuaigh Marcus G, Anastasia agus Vision é seo. Ghlacamar páirt i gcéilí freisin agus bhí an-chraic againn ag damhsa!

 

‘Féile na Gaeilge’ took place. It was brilliant! We spoke Irish during the day and we improved our fluency! We love Irish in 1st class and we had great fun during ‘Féile na Gaeilge’. Katie gave prizes to the person who tried their best. We had a quiz and Marcus G, Anastasia agus Vision won the quiz. We took part in a céilí as well and we had a lot of fun dancing!

 

This month we also took part in the Science fair. As a school we have been trying our best to conserve energy. In 1st class, we learned about hydro-power and how water can create energy. We made a water wheel and during the science fair Julius, Chidera and Anna J presented our experiment to the other classes.  As well as that, the rest of us also visited the science fair and had great fun looking at all of the other experiments.

 

Rocking our Socks in Senior Infants

This week we celebrated World Down Syndrome Day by wearing odd socks. Odd socks represents that we are all a little bit different but ultimately the same. We designed some funky socks that can be seen in our classroom window, learned about Down Syndrome and played some fun games.
