Both third classes went to Dún Laoghaire for their annual summer tour. We had an absolutely fantastic day and we were blessed with sunny weather. We discovered so many sea creatures like anemones, crabs, lugworms and much more when rock-pooling. We even came across an escaped budgie on the way down to the beach! We also had an amazing time kayaking and swimming in the harbour. The perfect day to reward a great year for both classes!
Third class have been presenting amazing projects on European countries. Everyone made loads of effort to make their project interesting and memorable. Some dressed up in typical clothing and others brought in money and memorabilia. We had a great time tasting different breads and bakes and even some delicious pizza and meatballs! Yum yum!
We are all in love!!! We’ll have to visit them in Airfield soon!
Mrs.Duffy’s class had a visit from Morpheus the rabbit recently. He was so soft and cuddly, I think we all want a pet rabbit now!
We also had a visit from the tortoise with no name!!! She is in her 70s and still hasn’t been named. Shelley was a popular choice today!
Third class enjoyed using modelling clay to make Three Little Pigs. What a colourful lot of piggies! They look fab when they’re painted and glossed.
Mr Ross’ third class enjoyed a very busy Active Week this year, swinging from bars with the Bar Monkey team and running their races in the sunshine at Marlay Park at Sports Day!
3rd Class have been learning all about the rainforest, its animals and its plants. They completed some art and project work that really impressed the Junior Infants. They were even lucky enough to be invited by the Infants to tell them all about the animals that live in the rainforest. Junior Infants will be going to the zoo soon and will already have loads of knowledge thanks to the amazing researching and presenting from third class. Well done!
The extra-curricular drama club, for 2nd and 3rd class children, had yet another successful term. Throughout the term the children practised the basics of stagecraft including imagination and creativity through expression and articulation. The children’s self-confidence and self-discipline thrived throughout the term and their hard work paid off in their end of term performance.
The children performed “Hoodwinked”- a Swashbuckling Robin Hood Musical for 1st-6th Classes and again for their families at the grand Finale on Thursday 11th April. All of the children who participated should be very proud of themselves – it was a fantastic performance!
