Gotcha!

Posted on June 17th, 2014 in Ms. Berry by Ms. Berry

The children in Room 1 bravely searched and successfully caught woodlouse, spiders, ants, slugs, worms, ladybirds, a butterfly and even a bee yesterday on a vigorous hunt in the school hedgerow and garden. No stone was left unturned in the process! They worked really well together with their partners and then passed around the bug containers to share their findings with each other before releasing them back into their habitats. Well done children!

Who needs Roald Dahl when you have Mr. King’s class?

Posted on May 20th, 2014 in Mr. King,Ms. Hughes by Ms. Hughes

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Mr. King’s class for creating story books for us.

They are super!

A few weeks ago we met with the 6th class girls and told them about our hobbies, likes, dislikes, our friends and family and they came up with a personalised story for each of us.

They also illustrated the books beautifully.

Have a look at them below..

Some of these girls could be real authors some day!

Chalk drawings

Posted on May 20th, 2014 in Ms. Hughes by Ms. Hughes

It was such a lovely day today we decided to do some chalk drawings outside.

We wrote our numbers and letters and drew lots of pictures with different coloured chalk.

Bríd helped us to make a big butterfly together.

Our favourite part was drawing pictures on the black board outside.

We hope it doesn’t rain and wash away all our drawings!

Primary Schools’ GAA Skills Competition 2014

Posted on May 20th, 2014 in Latest News by Mr. Gately  Tagged

Congratulations to Liadh Dwyer from Rang 6 who recently won the Gaelic Football Skills Competition for all of Wexford. Liadh represented the school and competed against players from all over the county. She had to perform all the skills of the sport against the clock, so the pressure was on. As usual Liadh thrives under pressure and this was no exception. A great achievement for Liadh, her family, the school and her club St. John’s Volunteers.

Mad Scientists in 7A!

Posted on May 8th, 2014 in Ms. Kent by jkent5183  Tagged

We had a scientist visit our class last week. We carried out lots of experiments. We mixed colours and saw how a raisin reacted to gas. We got use beakers and pipettes. It is clear that some 7A kids will be scientists someday – they loved it! We also used the visit as an opportunity to write a report, the children did some excellent work.

See the scientists in action…

The Elves and the Shoemaker

Posted on April 26th, 2014 in Ms. Berry by Ms. Berry

In Room 1, the children enjoyed listening to the story of The Elves and the Shoemaker. Then they illustrated it to create a wall story for the classroom. They used marla to make their own shoes, boots and elves. Really well done – each child made a unique pair of shoes just like the elves did!
