Fun on an Obstacle Course

 

Our sixth class students were very busy this morning creating an obstacle course on the grass in front of the school and in the upper playground. Each station was manned and an invitation was sent to the junior infant classes. The junior infant boys and girls tried out each station with the help and supervision of the older students. As you can see from the photos below, they all had a wonderful time!

We were very happy to once again welcome Cathy Sheerin to the school to impart some of her extensive knowledge of 'Tug of War' to the children. Below the children from Ms Kiernan's Senior Infant Class try out some of their newly acquired skills!

The Salmon of Knowledge

 

Irish Folklore has been passed down from generation to generation. There are many stories about Fionn Mc Cumhaill, one of which is the Salmon of Knowledge. An old man called Finnegas catches the Salmon of Knowledge and its scales were the colours of the rainbow. He tells Fionn that who so ever eats the salmon will gain all the knowledge in the world. When the fish is cooking, a bubble appears on the skin and Fionn bursts it with his finger. He burns his finger and puts it in his mouth and sucked the burned spot. From that day forward, if Fionn needed to know anything, all he had to do was put his thumb in his mouth.

The boys and girls in Mrs Granahan's Senior Infant Class have been learning all about this wonderful story this week. During their art lesson today, they created their own 'Salmon of Knowledge' and hung them outside their classroom for everyone to admire.
