We made some lovely colourful windmills in second class. Here is how they turned out…
Abby’s Grandad, Michael Casey, is an author and he sent us in a draft of his new book that is in the process of being published. We were very lucky to have a visit from him today. He came in to tell us about his book and to tell us about life as an author. We picked up lots of storytelling tips from him. We all want to be authors when we grow up… Here are some photos from the visit…

Meeting for Parents/Guardians on Monday, 17th November 2014
at 8.00 p.m. in the School Hall.
We had a brilliant day at Energy Fun Centre!
Room 11 and Room 12 made the most of the beautiful sunny day today! Hopefully we will get lots more opportunities to dine al fresco!
We used some dark at bright pastels to create these colourful leafy pictures…
Can you spot the butterflies amongst the leaves?
On Thursday 14th of March we had our Pre-Communion mass in the school hall. The hall was beautifully decorated with lots of artwork and lovely daffodils. Fr. Joe said the mass and we were delighted to have Sr. Marie there on the night too. We sang lots of hymns and played our recorders. Our parents and teachers were very proud of us all!
A couple of weeks ago we took our art outdoors…
We mixed washing up liquid and paint together in containers. Using straws, we blew into the containers. There were colourful bubbles everywhere! We placed paper over the bubbles. When the bubbles burst, they made a colourful pattern on the sheet of paper.
We splatted the leftover paint onto a big sheet at the end of the day. It was great fun! Take a look at our creations….
Dear Parents/Guardians of Children in Second Class,
Your child will receive the Sacrament of First Penance
On: Monday 15TH April 2013
At: 11.00 a.m.
In: Bayside Church
The children will be brought to the church by their teachers at 10.55 a.m. and they will be seated in pre-arranged places. Parents/Guardians are welcome to introduce the child to the priest for confession at the appropriate time. Parents should sit on side aisles near the relevant class. (In the absence of a parent/guardian the teacher will introduce the child)
Please ensure your child is in full school uniform on the day.
As the children will be receiving a sacrament we ask you to encourage respect for this solemn occasion.
We look forward to celebrating this sacrament together.
We would like to invite all parents/guardians of pupils in second class to attend our
Pre-Communion Mass in the school hall on Thursday, 14th March at 7.30 p.m. Unfortunately due to space considerations, only two people can accompany each child.
Children need to be in school in their designated areas for 7 p.m. Full uniform must be worn.
As usual, we will be appealing for donations of daffodils to decorate the altar and hall. These may be left in the school foyer on the morning of Thursday, 14th.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on this very special occasion.
Today is George Washington’s birthday! He was born on the 22nd of February 1732…. Which means, if he was alive today he would be 281 years old! To celebrate his birthday we had an American Day in Room 7 today.
We collected lots of information about the USA and came together in groups to make amazing projects. We also made Statue of Liberty headbands, listened to American music (including the National Anthem!!!) and ate some American snacks! Some of us brought in apples for our fruit break because New York is known as “The Big Apple”… We all had a great day.

We were busy down in Room 7 today, making St. Brigid’s Day crosses. We all worked as a team and made lovely crosses together!
Happy New Year everyone!
It’s January, our weather has turned arctic…. So we have been doing some research into how different animals survive in arctic weather (temperatures a LOT colder than we have here in Ireland) In our groups, we found out some very interesting facts about these amazing animals: Polar Bears, Penguins, Ringed seals, Snowy owls, Orcas, Narwhals, Arctic foxes and Ermines.
David Attenborough would be proud of us…!
We were really lucky to have an Athletics instructor from Fingal in the school teaching us Fundamental Movement Skills. We have learned lots over the the past 4 weeks! Thanks Eoin!
