On Friday the 18th of September we had Blue Friday in school. The children dressed up in something blue to support the Dublin team playing in the All Ireland on Sunday.

Gardening with Deirdre

Reading for Fun

Reading for Fun

Reading for fun has been up and running for the past 5 weeks in both 3rd and 4th class. The 3rd class children have been reading Roddy Doyle’s book ‘The Giggler Treatment’ and in 4th class the children have been reading ‘The Meanwhile Adventures’. Both books have proved to be very popular with the children and parents alike. The school is very grateful to all the parents who have volunteered to help out with reading for fun over the past number of weeks. In total we have had over 25 parents helping out in the school this term. This is great to see and the...

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun!

Maths for Fun went very smoothly again this year. The children loved it and gained a lot from playing maths and card games with an adult. We have a lot of excellent card players in 4th class now so adults beware! Thank you to the adults who took part. We suspect they had more fun at times than the children! Reading for Fun will be on in the New Year, in March at some stage. Please let the Home-school Teacher know if you are interested in working with the children on this.
