Anne Frank

Posted on March 3rd, 2011 in zzz ~ Old class blogs by Mrs. Doran  Tagged

Thursday 3rd March

Today we started reading ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’.  Anne received her diary as a present for her birthday. We learnt many things about Anne in the first few entries.  She feels that she has many friends without any close friend.  She explained how she doesn’t confide in her friends and therefore feels alone. For this reason, she decided to write her diary entries as if she was talking to a close friend …. whom she would call … Kitty.

Take a look at the following links if you are interested to learn more 🙂

Seó Faisin

Bhí seó faisin againn inniu. Bhí sé go hiontach!


Seo chugainn Grace anois. Nach bhfuil an culaith go hálainn? Tá culaith ildaite agus galánta uirthi. Tá gúna difriúil agus suimiúil a chaitheamh aici. Féach ar na bróga ard dubh a réitíonn go hiontach leis an seodra. Tá an gúna liath agus bándearg agus tá sé go hálainn. Tá muince uirthi freisin. Féach ar an seaicéad dearg! Nach bhfuil sé ar fheabhas? Réitíonn an seaicéad go hiontach leis an mbráisléad. Tá an culaith seo go hiontach. Is féidir leat feisteas Grace a cheannach sa siopa ‘Dun-nes’ ar chostas €59.99 ina iomlán.

Oíche Shamhna – Cluichí & Spóirt!

Posted on November 16th, 2010 in zzz ~ Old class blogs by Mrs. Doran  Tagged

Oíche Shamhna – Cluichí  & Spóirt!

Is aoibhinn linn Oíche Shamhna. Rinneamar a lán rudaí sa rang as Gaeilge.

Rinneamar bairín breac.

Thug Miss Kildea an t-oideas dúinn.

Bhí orainn gach rud a chuir le chéile gan cabhair!




























Chuir Miss Kildea airgead istigh an bairín breac.







  D’itheamar iad go léir! 

An Bairín Breac

Má fhaigheann tú an  ….

Fáinne      =  pósfaidh tú go luath!

Ceirt          =  beidh tú bocht!

Pónaire     = beidh tú saibhir!

Cnaipe       = beidh tú i do bhaitsiléir!

Méaracán  = beidh tú i do sheanmhaighdean!

Cluichí  & Spóirt!

D’imríomar cluichí sa halla!  Cá bhfuil mo chairde?

D’imríomar cluichí sa leabharlann!

Bain plaic as an úll


Lámha taobh thiar ar dtús.

Osclaíonn tú do bhéal.

Baineann tú plaic as.

Tá an bua agat!



D’imríomar cluichí sa rang!

Faigh an bonn!


Cromann tú síos.

Ní bheireann tú ar an mbáisin.

Faigheann tú an bonn.

Tá an bua agat!












(Aoife was holding Ciara’s hair back

  – not holding her under!)








Bia álainn!

Rinneamar pizza beaga álainn.

Bhí said go deas.

 Ar mhaith leat é a dheanamh?

1. Nigh do lámha.

2. Chuir cáis, liamhás, sicín, trátaí, anann, piobar nó  oinniún ar phíosa tósta.

3. Ansin scaip cáis ar bharr an tósta.

4. Chuir an píosa tósta istigh an t-oigheann.

5. Fág é ar chúpla nóimead.

6. Thóg amach é agus ith an pizza beaga.


You are what you eat!

In science we have been learning about the GDA on food packaging.

Guideline Daily Amounts (GDAs) is a nutrition facts label designed to help consumers (shoppers)  make sense of the nutrition information provided on food labels. They translate science into consumer friendly information, providing guidelines on pack that help consumers put the nutrition information they read on a food label into the context of their overall diet.

GDAs are guidelines for healthy adults and children about the approximate amount of calories, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate, total sugars, protein, fibre, salt and sodium required for a healthy diet.

GDAs are now in widespread use across the food industry and appear both on the front and back of food packaging.

Did  you know ?

The nutrition table on the back of food packaging is in order of the contents highest to lowest. This way, the consumer can see very clearly if there is more salt than sugar etc.

It’s FUN to learn new information but REMEMBER –  A balanced diet is the best  🙂


We sang ‘Dem Bones’ using the correct names!

The phalanges are connected to the metatarsals,

The metatarsals connect to the tarsals,

The tarsals are connected to the tibia,

The tibia’s connected to the patella bone,

The patella’s connected to the femur bone,

The femur bone’s connected to the pelvic bone,

The pelvic bone’s connected to the back’s spine,

The back’s spine’s connected to the scapula,

The scapula’s connected to the neck bone,

The neck bone’s connected to the skull,

Now we know all their names!
