Green School’s Clean-Up Day, football training, meeting our new infants and their parents, GAA Fun Day with a semi-final hurling match then back into the infant room for some basketball practice while most of 6th class were off playing basketball and May is not even over yet. We also need to get our work finished for the school magazine and we’re busy preparing a musical surprise for everyone for our Graduation Ceremony.

April 2019
Many thanks to Mrs Warren for taking the boys and girls to the soccer qualifiers, both teams played a series of matches in some bad conditions. Well done to the boys who now go through to the next stage. We had a lovely time at the last of the Ben Markey Book Launches. We continued working on our Egyptian research including working on mummifying some apples. We monitored the change over a few days and came to the conclusion of the best solution to preserve the apple slice. We also presented our PowerPoint presentations to the class bringing our work on the Ancient Egyptians to a finish. Some of the class also made some pretty impressive artefacts. We carried out some hands-on maths investigation into the length of the circumference of a circle, which is 3.14 x the diameter of a circle in case you were wondering!

March 2019
Bhí an-spórt againn ar Lá Glas le ceoil, canadh, ealaín agus tráth na gceist. Thaitin an t-amhrán go mór le gach duine agus mile buíochas don buachaill ó rang a ceathair a sheinn an giotar dúinn. Wet Fridays won’t stop us enjoying our Golden Time. We made delicious flapjacks which were far more successful than our pancakes a few weeks ago and of course the cookies we half cremated. Here’s a look at some of our finished Aztec inspired masks. As well this month four sixth class pupils were chosen to compete in the Mini 7’s primary schools’ hurling and football competitions, two boys and two girls. Children from each school in Carlow were selected to go. These competitions were held in Carlow Town Hurling Club. The prize for the chosen few is the chance to go and play at half time in an All-Ireland semi-final in Croke Park. We had a long nervous wait to hear who was picked but it was a good experience to be part of. Two weeks later we got word that Isobel Cronin was selected and we cannot wait to see her show her incredible skills in Croke Park this summer. Well done Isobel. We’re very proud of you. We’ve also been busy practicing for the basketball, soccer, hurling and camogie competitions all starting soon.

February 2019
February was a short but action packed month in sixth class. We have been doing a variety of counting activities, preparing our song for Lá Glas next month ‘Shotgun’ by George Ezra as gaeilge and doing some mapping skills work on Mexico as part of our project work on the Aztecs. We finished these research projects and presented our findings to each other. The most difficult part was keeping our projects to only A3 size but Ms. Cawley kept telling us it wasn’t an exercise in googling but presenting our most interesting facts in our words and drawings. Then we finished up our work on the Aztecs by creating our own Aztec inspired masks out of clay. Finished products will follow in March.

January 2019
Maternity Leave flew by so quickly and now it’s as though I never left. January has been a busy month especially with preparations for the Peace Proms in full swing. We’ve also done great project work on the Orchestra and famous composers, worked hard on maths through games, problem solving and interactive activities and then thrown in some baking, Grandparent’s Day as part of Catholic School’s Week and the actual Peace Proms Concert it has definitely been an action packed month.

September 2018
We’ve had a great start to September 2018 by delving into all areas of the curriculum and of course getting to know Miss Kane. We’ve being doing lots of fun activities in each subject, from creating volcanic eruptions in science, exploring the work of Kandinsky in art, to learning about Europe in geography and working on our individual projects on a particular country in Europe. We have also started GAA and swimming which we are all thriving in. Our class has already earned our first class reward of the year (YIPEE!!). We decided to make our very own pizza, we had great fun, but even more fun eating it. We hope to continue all this great work throughout the year.
