Perhaps the fact that it was International Women’s Day played a part, but there’s no doubt that both the Yellow and Red senior girls soccer teams were inspired in their league matches on Thursday. Displaying superb strength and stamina on the grass pitch at Kilcoole Primary School, the Yellow team defeated the opposition 1 – 0 with missed opportunities that didn’t do the scoreline justice. Meanwhile, at Leicester Celtic, the Red team took on the Muslim National School, winning by a convincing 3 – 0. The girls soccer season is off to a scorching start!
Sixth class were using some of their new “score & slip” skills in clay to create some delicious looking cupcakes.
Both 5th classes hugely enjoyed learning more about Viking and Medieval Dublin on a recent trip to Dublinia.
We tried on some helmets and had a lot of fun looking at the exhibition! There was a trip on a Viking longboat, a visit to the docks to try buy some slaves and tested out their homes. After learning about their toilets we really appreciate our modern comforts! While exploring Norman Ireland we saw Dublin city being built, took a trip to a medieval fair and encountered the (rather disgusting) bubonic plague and its victims. We even saw a real skeleton uncovered by archaeologists.
A very exciting day out!
Fifth Class are erupting with creativity this term. We’ve been making volcanoes, creating colourful Aztec serpents and writing a lot of lovely poetry.
It has been great fun to have parents and grandparents in helping with knitting. We’re very grateful for their help! Here’s a few photos of some of us. Many thanks also to Dorthe Meulangratch, Olive Murray and Deirdre Culbert.
Senior Infants have been learning lots about pengiuns. They have also been sewing some great snowmen puppets!
Junior Infants have really enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year. They tried to eat noodles with chopsticks. A buddy from 6th class, who is an expert, came in to help them!!
In the Spring Term the Drama group was busy rehearsing in the hall for their play “Dragon Days”. They worked very hard, not only to learn their lines, but to learn songs and actions too! Here’s a sneak peak of their rehearsals.
