Brothers, Jakub and Kornel Lachowski from Ms Murphy's Third Class and Ms Duffy's Senior Infant Class respectively, attend Polish lessons every week. 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.

Autumnal Art


When it comes to inspiration for Art lessons, we need look no further than Nature. Ms Murphy's Third Class did just that. While enjoying a Nature walk, they collected a multitude of leaves in the various shades of autumnal colours - red, yellow, orange, brown and pink, to name but a few. When the leaves dried, they created wonderful pieces of art using their incredible imaginations. Great work!
