Summer’s coming quickly, but not to worry Primary 6 are keeping busy with a Maths Trail, set up by our Maths Co-ordinator, Mrs. O’Hagan. Lots of fun, lots of learning.Well done P6 for completing the maths and having fun at the same time. Thank you to Mrs.O’Hagan for setting up the Maths Trail.
Tomorrow, Thursday 14th of June we have an exciting opportunity for everyone to learn more about our native wildlife. Jim Martin will visit the school with his “Wildlife Exhibition” and all classes Nursery to P 7 will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition and take part in workshops. The cost is £2/child and all donations towards the cost would be greatly appreciated.
Our sincere thanks to Karena McGahan and her gymnastic squad for coming into Nursery and taking a very exciting gymnastics session for the class. It was so lovely to see some of our past pupils coming back to help out. It was super fun and I can see we have a few future super star gymnasts in the making here.
The Nursery were busy bees yesterday at Finnegans Nursery. We had a delightful day filled with fun and happiness outside in the garden. Previously, the children have been planting and growing different vegetables and fruit, and yesterday they finally got to enjoy and eat them with their picnic. We went on a magical walk through the garden and looked at all the different plants and trees. Then we used our mathematical skills and measured each other to see who was the tallest! A truly enjoyable morning!
I hope you enjoy the photos and we would like to thank you for supporting the scheme ‘Grow Your Own Picnic’.
Today Primary 3/4 visited Bluebell Lane Glamping site as part of our Eco Schools project. In 2016 pupils from St Mary’s helped to plant some of the 20,000 trees that are situated around the site. Our class took a trip back to see how they have grown over time.
We measured the height and circumference and found out more about the many different types of trees found in the woodland.
We then discovered some of the different plant life in our flower and plant hunt. Primary 3/4 were very lucky today to see small frogs and dragon flies in the pond area. We extend our thanks to Padraig Carragher for his time today, the children throughly enjoyed the experience!
A reminder to those pupils/parents/grandparents, taking part in part in our Intergenerational Project, that there are 2 sessions organised for next week on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 7 pm here in St. Mary’s. It is only necessary to attend one of the sessions. Please bring along your I-pad if you have one of your own and please download the I Movie App in advance from the App store.
Due to a busy few weeks ahead before we finish for summer, Irish Dancing club is finished for this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the parents, for your continued support since January.
