Halloween Games

The boys and girls in Ms Mc Laughlin's Second Class have worked very hard over the past eight weeks. So, as an end of term treat they enjoyed playing some Halloween games. The games included water, flour and fruit. It was wet and messy but also so much fun as you can see from the photos below.

Maths Trail for Junior Infants

The boys and girls in Mrs Gavin's Junior Infant Class love Maths! But, when Mrs Gavin set the children a Maths Trail challenge they asked for help from their friends in Ms Mc Loughlin's Second Class. The children divided up into mixed groups and set about answering the questions in the Maths Trail booklet. They began the challenge indoors and later moved outside to finish up. Friendships were forged, questions were answered and good fun was had by all!

Waka Waka

(This Time for Africa)


Throughout Active Schools Week when music is played over the intercom, that is the signal for staff and students to get up and dance. The song this year is 'The Eye of the Tiger' and having mastered the dance moves, it has become a firm favourite with the children. Coming up a close second is 'Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)'. A group of boys from Mrs Farrell's First Class have become so good at the dance for this song that they visited each class today to perform for everyone. Well done boys!
