Pancake Tuesday

Today is Pancake Tuesday also known as Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally, it is the day when we feast on rich foods, like tasty pancakes, before Lent begins tomorrow. In France and the United States the day is known as Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday. The French like to make a wish before flipping their pancakes. They do this while holding a coin in the other hand.

Many classes had pancake parties today and enjoyed a variety of fillings such as sugar and lemon, jam, butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit and of course chocolate spread. What filling will you have tonight?

The boys and girls in Ms Hamill's Junior Infant Class and Ms Mc Laughlin's First Class thoroughly enjoyed their pancakes today as you can see from the photos below!

Self Portraits


The boys and girls in Ms Clarke's Junior Infant Class tried their hands at painting self portraits in the style of the very famous artist, Pablo Picasso. What a great job they made of them. Well done guys!

Santa's Treat Plates


With the St Colman's Christmas Fair just around the corner, many of our classes are getting started on making crafts to sell on the day. Today, local artist Andrina Finch paid a visit to Ms Clarke's and Ms Hamill's Junior Infant classes. She instructed the children on how to paint a ceramic plate. The results were amazing! These 'Santa's Treat Plates' will be perfect to leave out on Christmas Eve for the man himself.

They entered a competition last Sunday which took place in Carlow. Jakub and Kornel each recited a long poem in Polish. They impressed the judges and both brought home trophies. Well done boys. Keep up the hard work!

Having Fun with iPads

The boys and girls in Ms Mulcair's Senior Infant Class look forward to Friday mornings because that's when they get to work on the school iPads. Over the past few weeks they have been exploring an app called 'Phonics Garden' to help them with their phonics and letter formation. Ms Mulcair is so proud of the children's hard work and how well they have been at sharing and taking turns with the iPads. The children would like to thank Mrs Jones for helping them use the iPads and making it so much fun!
