A message from P6 and P6/7

P6 and P6/7 pupils had worked so hard on creating their own Cribs and unfortunately with the recent upsurge in Covid we didn’t want to send them home. So here’s the next best thing… a small production team this week helped us put together this very special Christmas message, featuring all of the Cribs!!!

We wish all the hard working (and creative), Boys and Girls of P6 and P6/7 and their families a  very Happy Christmas.

P6 Outdoor Learning

A great start to Autumn for P6 who launched their Outdoor Learning Project!
Today, Sean, Raiens, Connor, Oisin and Lorcan painted the planters ready for planting vegetables and flowers. Thank you boys for your hard work and we look forward to watching the progress of P6’s project.

 

P5 Live Lessons

It was lovely to see and talk with P5 pupils who started their live lessons using Collaborate Ultra on Friday morning. It was great to hear what you are all doing (in addition to your superb class work).

Our first lesson took us on a virtual trip to Iceland 🇮🇸 to read a myth “The Stone Trolls“ which explained the shape of Iceland’s large stones.
Just like in class, P5 generated  a lot of conversation and are very keen to continue their lessons to learn more about volcanoes.
We are looking forward to our next lesson and finding out more about what you boys and girls are getting up to while school in the real world is closed.
Exciting to see that our school in the virtual world is opened and keeping us all busy at this time 👏

 

A snapshot of P5/6 Work!

Congratulations to P5/6 pupils who since Easter have set a target to read “One Book a Week”. This achievement was recognised by Mrs Murphy, Literacy Coordinator, who presented P5 pupil Ciara and P6 pupil Cailaim with the  Accelerated Reading Top Reader of the Month Certificate.

Not only did P5/6 read the classics Black Beauty and Around the World in 80 Days, they read a non-fiction book The Deadly Vikings by local author John Farrelly, cousin of P5 pupil Oisin O’Hagan.

As you will see in their short film pupils completed book reviews and character studies, created Google Quizzes and even designed and made a home for Badger in The Wind in the Willows.

On top of all this P5/6 have been busy writing, Ava wrote instructions on how to make face masks which she shared with the class while others entered a GAA writing competition to describe their favourite GAA player! It is great to see that all pupils chose to write about their own family members who have contributed so much to GAA sports in our local football clubs.

Well done P5/6 a very busy couple of weeks for you all and we all look forward to another 7 weeks of hard work!
