The Food Pyramid


As a healthy eating school, we encourage students at all times to make healthy choices when it comes to breakfast, school lunches, their evening meal and never forgetting snacks. The boys and girls in Mrs Gilligan's Fourth Class have been learning all about healthy eating by using the Food Pyramid. Eating the correct amount of nutrients contained in protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals is so important to maintain good health. To put all their newfound knowledge to the test, the children worked in pairs and groups to design and make a healthy sandwich/wrap/bagel. They had great fun sharing their likes and dislikes and finally creating their healthy treats. I'm sure you'll agree they look delicious!

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!

Newgrange is a prehistoric tomb located in the Boyne Valley area of Co Meath. It was constructed by Stone Age farmers over 5,200 years ago. It is a large circular mound with a stone passageway and chambers inside. There are 97 kerbstones surrounding the mound and some of them are engraved with symbols called megalithic art. Above the entrance to the tomb, there is an opening called a roof-box. This opening allows sunlight to penetrate the chamber on the shortest day of the year, 21st December. This is called the Winter Solstice.

The students in Mrs Healy-Donoghue's Third Class have been learning all about Newgrange during their geography lessons and they have been fascinated with the subject. Many of them researched at home, asking realitives if they had the pleasure of visiting the site. They drew their own Newgrange but two classmates, Ella-May Ferris and Aisling Kevlihan took it one step further and they created a 3D model. With a little help from Ella-May's mum and using cardboard, play-doh, marla and green velvet material, the girls built a tomb with chambers inside and added kerbstones too. Aisling also found a photo, taken by her Grandfather in 1958, of the Killoe Pioneers on their annual trip to Newgrange.
