A Spooktacular Day

On Friday the children from Ms. O’Connell’s and Ms. O’Neill’s classes got into the Halloween mood.

We had scary witches, fearsome vampires, howling were wolves, killer clowns, sideman and superman, magical cheerleaders and creepy skeletons.

We even had a zombie doctor and nurse (complete with corona virus). The school has been decorated with wonderful Halloween art too.

Have a look at our photographs if you are brave enough.

Lapland

Over the last few weeks we have been learning about Lapland in Geography. One of the things we enjoyed the most was learning about the Northern Lights. We watched videos, looked at pictures and learned a few facts. Here are some of the things we learned:

  • They are also called “Aurora Borealis”
  • They are bright, dancing streams of purple, green, red & yellow in the night sky!
  • It must be dark and clear to see them.
  • Places like Canada & the Arctic Circle are some of the best places to view them (but they can also be seen in Donegal!)
  • They are caused by “Solar flares” (charged particles) which react with the earth’s atmosphere.

We really enjoyed learning about Lapland, especially the Northern Lights. We even did our own pictures, here are some photos for you to enjoy. We hope you like them.

Junior Tour

On Friday 21st June Junior & Senior Infants & 1st class were very excited. We were going on our school tour! We went all the way to Turoe Pet Farm. We played on bouncy castles, in bale pools, we met fluffy rabbits and saw lots of chickens and doves. We went on a lovely walk around the farm and we fed goats, lambs, llamas, alpacas, ponies and cows along the way. We also checked for the evil troll under the bridge! We saw lots of fairy doors and even a fairy playground. We all had a super day and when we got back to the school we had ice lollies!

See our photos.
