November 2017
November was a busy time where we started to get ready for Christmas. In this month the school sadly said goodbye to Mrs Sheppard who had taught all of fourth and fifth class for at least one year. We made a card to show our appreciation. Music Generation continued with the class getting great enjoyment out of the lessons as usual. In art we looked at cubism, particularly at the works of the Irish artist Mainie Jellett. You can see the excellent work of the class in the photo. Knitting has also proved to be a popular activity with the children getting great enjoyment out of the new skill. In history we studied the Industrial Revolution, and then made 3D representations inspired by what we had learned. We had factories, there were steam engines, tractors and ships, machines of all kinds, and houses were built. There was a unique phone, a gun, a doll to show the clothes worn in the past, and a sculpture to show the desolation felt by the children who were forced to labour in mines and factories.

October 2017
This year we had a very busy October. Some of the boys and girls took part in the Cumann na mBunscol football league. The girls did a great job of winning all their matches and so they qualified straight into the semi-final. The boys unfortunatly lost their first match vs Kildavin but they won against Myshall and Carlow Educate Together so they got to the semi-final as well. Unfortunately the girls lost by 3 points against Drumphea and the boys lost by 2 points against Tynnock in extra-time.

Pupils also took part in the Credit Union art competition, and these are some of the pieces they created. And for Halloween we loved going down to the castle for our Halloween walk. We had a very fun time in October.

September 2017
Fourth and fifth class have bounced back and have got involved in the school year. They have made mosaics, inspired by what the Romans used to do, and we have used mind maps to help with our science. Between active schools, football success and emotion walks there has never been a dull moment.
