As this unusual school year comes to an end, I would like to say a big thank you to all the students who were in my class. You are a fantastic bunch. I loved teaching you all. Well done on all the hard work, the email contact and of course most importantly, on keeping yourselves and those around you safe by staying at home over the last few months. I hope you all have a lovely summer and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Please keep scrolling down on this page to see slideshows of all the wonderful work you carried out while learning remotely. Also see some lovely photos of your first day in Junior / Senior Infants. You have all grown a LOT! Further down are photos of various activities you carried throughout the school year. Well done again everyone.

The Rainbow Fish – A colourful start to the New Year

Our first week back in 2019 has been a very creative one. We have a beautiful bright classroom as all our little art prodigies commence creating their version of “The Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister. Wait a few secs for slide show to appear!

It’s hard to believe that we are in our second month of the new school year and Halloween is just around the corner.This month we have been learning a lot about Autumn. We got a big fright one day when we found ‘Witchy Woo’ hiding in some leaves on our nature table. She is a friendly witch mostly, but she can get up to a few tricks now and again!

Witchy Woo made a cosy bed for herself on our nature table!We have been concentrating on ‘printing’ during art time which is one of our favourite subjects. We used our fingerprints to create some fantastic autumn trees. We also experimented with pattern when completing our sponge-prints. You can see some of our art work below!
