Thank you Mammies and Daddies

Thank you so much for the very generous and extremely thoughtful gifts. We will always treasure them and remember you all.

It has been an absolute pleasure teaching and working with all of your children. We will miss each and every one of them.

Have a great summer.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Benny the class bear had a lovely picnic with all of our teddy bears. They all had lots of fun playing together.



Green Day

On Thursday we went down to the hall and saw all of the green day displays. Everyone in the school did projects on different countries, recycling and where different types of food came from. Our projects on the journey of butter and the Arctic and Antarctica were in the hall too for everyone to see.

We got to taste different foods from all over the world. Our favourite was the sprinkle sandwiches from Holland. It was a great day.

Making Butter

We learned all about where butter comes from and how it is made. We worked very hard and we made our own butter for the Green Day Presentation. It was lots of fun but very hard work. After we were finished we had butter and crackers. It was yummy.


Sport’s Day

On Friday, we had Sport’s Day. We had a very busy day playing with the parachute, stations and on the playground. We also did lots of races with bean bags, eggs and spoons and space hoppers. We had lots of fun.


Project Work

We worked very hard on our projects for Green Day. We did a lot of research on Antarctica and Arctic.

Yummy Honey

We got to taste honey straight from the honeycomb. It come all the way from a hive in Wexford. We got to feel the comb and taste the honey. It was really yummy.

School Tour

On Tuesday, we went to Drogheda Leisure Park for our school tour. We left the school very early in the morning and got the bus to Drogheda. It was lots of fun. First of all we started off playing in the Astrotots soft form area.

Then we went to the Fairy’s Room where we got cool tattoos and made our own fairy doors.

After that we had a disco and we played lots of different music games.

Finally we went to the bouncy castles and planet football.

Before leaving we had our lunch in the party room.

We were very exhausted getting the bus back to the school. We had a brilliant day at our school tour.


Caterpillars to Butterflies

Ms. Barry got some caterpillars in her class. We watched them for a few weeks. They started off as small caterpillars and once they had eaten enough they turned into chrysalises. After a few days in their chrysalises, they left their chrysalises behind and became beautiful butterflies. We released them in the field and now they are living in our bug hotel.


For the last six weeks, Kevin from Leinster Rugby came to teach us every Tuesday. We trained very hard and got very good at playing that Kevin even taught us how to play tag rugby. We loved seeing Kevin every week and hope he will come to train us again next year.

Fireman Richard

On Friday, Fireman Richard came in to talk to us all about fire safety in our homes. We are going to teach everyone in our home about Thumbs Up Monday. Every Monday it is really important that we put our thumbs up and check that our fire alarms are working.

We were all able to try on Fireman Richards hat and gloves. He gave us all pencils and jellies too.

Thank you Fireman Richard for visiting our school.

Scooter Thursday

We had lots of fun on Thursday learning how to use our scooters. A lovely lady came to teach us how to use our scooters safely. She also showed us how to make sure we are wearing our helmets safely.

We scooted around the school and yard and did an obstacle course on our scooters. Even Ms. O’Connor and Ms.Flanagan went on the scooters.

Happy Pancake Tuesday!

Today we made pancakes. It was lots of fun and they all tasted delicious.

Watch us making our pancakes-
