Irish Dancing

We are so lucky to be doing Irish dancing with Claire Dowling. Our lessons will continue for the next 7 weeks and then we’ll have a feis! 

A last reminder to be at the school at 11.30 tomorrow for the library visit – we are on a tight schedule so we’ll be leaving at 11.30 sharp! 

All for now!


Parent Teacher Meetings

On Thursday 16th March I sent out forms for any parent/ guardian who is interested in a follow up parent teacher meeting for their child. 

Meetings will take place morning and afternoon from Monday 24th April and continue all week. 

If you are interested in a follow up meeting, forms MUST be returned by tomorrow Tuesday. 

Thank you to those who have already returned the forms – I will send home a time and date today. 


Lá Glas

The class looked great in green today. Well done everyone – a lovely end to Seachtain na Gaeilge!

Today we also had nominations for Gaeilgeoir na Seachtaine (Irish speaker of the week).

 From our class Casey Lin and Sadie Forde were the winners – maith sibh cailíní!

Don’t forget school is closed tomorrow and Monday for the St. Patrick’s Day break. See you all Tuesday morning!



Just some notes for this week:
Our sound is /u/ as in uncle, under and up. We are learning about the story of St. Patrick in Gaeilge and History.

Seachtain na Gaeilge is also continuing this week – today we went to a ceolchoirm (concert) by Joe Doyle and had great fun singing and clapping along. My class really enjoyed the lilting! Tomorrow we will be treated to a céilí! 

Don’t forget to wear something green for the Lá Glas (Green Day) on Thursday. If your child doesn’t want to wear green or doesn’t have anything suitable, don’t worry, we have made lovely shamrock headbands that are perfect for the day!

Finally, I received a vaccination form back from an unknown parent today – there were no details filled in on the form. If you think it belongs to you please let me know. Try to have forms returned asap. 

All for now!


Science Fair

Today we were excited to be invited to the science fair which was organised by the 3rd class teachers and their pupils. We were able to take part in lots of different experiments including testing parachutes and experimenting with circuits!

Thank you to the Ms. Clarke, Ms. Egan, Mr. Creamer and all the 3rd class for showing us how everything worked! 

Apologies if I didn’t get a picture of everyone, it was a busy morning!
