Staying Street Smart

Our class were invited to attend a talk given by the RSA on being street smart. There was also an interactive course where we got to show off what we learned. When we proved how we can be safe on the street we were given our licenses. Having RSA licenses mean we have a responsibility to stay safe on the roads and while travelling in our cars. We learned how important it is to wear a seat belt and sit properly while travelling in the car.

The New School Playground!

We were delighted to get a chance to play on the new playground in the school. There are lots of fun things to play on. Here are some pictures of us having a go on all the different equipment:

Examining Nature

We took part in a biodiversity workshop. We had a visitor who knew all about living creatures and their habitats. We got to examine living creatures ourselves! It was really interesting and helped us learn a little bit more about the world around us. Here are some pictures of us learning and examining the creatures.

Halloween Transformations

We decided to dress up for Halloween. We had an assortment of characters enter our classroom for the day. Well done to all the children, they all looked super!

Our Successful Students!

One of our classmates was very successful in a wrestling competition in Dublin. Justinas took a trip down to Dublin to take part in a wrestling competition and was so successful he received a medal! We are delighted for Justinas, all his hard work paid off. Here is a picture of Justinas with his medal.

Marvelous Music

We had a visit from Adam Kelly and his friend Ferdinand who are in Transition Year in St. Patricks College, Cavan. Ferdinand is an exchange student who was visiting from Germany. He is very talented at music so he joined Adam in playing some violin for us to hear. It was very impressive and made us want to try playing the violin ourselves. They also taught us a little bit of German, which was sehr gut! Danke schön, Adam und Ferdinand.

Jumping for Gymnastics

We had a visit from a gymnastics expert who did lots of exciting activities with us! We had to work as a team to make numbers and shapes using our bodies. There were bouncy mats on the ground to make sure we didn't get hurt while we perfected our forward rolls. We had so much fun.
