Christmas Fair 2017

Christmas Fair 2017 has been a great success and we hope that everyone went home happy with their purchases.  Many thanks to the parents who helped in many different ways today and to those who have spent many, many hours in the school over the last couple of weeks, sorting through the toys and other items.  The school calendar produced by the PTA sold very well so if you haven’t bought one yet make sure you get one before stocks run out!

Sixth class pupils did a great job of helping to run the stalls and 4th and 5th class pupils helped their buddies in the infant classes to shop.

Congratulations to the people who won prizes in the raffle; they have all been notified.  Siobhan has a list if you’d like to know who the lucky winners were.  Thank you to all the parents and local businesses who donated these lovely prizes.

Finally thanks to Mrs Perdue, Mr Leonard,  Siobhan and the other members of staff who worked very hard to make sure everything ran like clockwork and that this was a fun day for everyone.

Science with our buddies

We decided to try out our new Pneumatic toys with our Senior Infant buddies while at the same time teaching them about the powerful force of air. You can see that both classes really enjoyed the experience.

In 5th class, we’ve been learning about pneumatic and hydraulic forces. We used this knowledge to design and build a toy in groups.

LATE LATE TOY SHOW!

This week four lucky children got to visit RTE and get a sneak preview of the Late Late Toy Show set.   Their names were picked out in a draw for places and they went to RTE with Mrs. Murphy, who was equally excited about the visit!

They got to meet Ryan Tubridy and to see the studio decorated in a Little Mermaid theme in advance of the show airing tonight.  This was a really special outing and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Many thanks to Josh’s mum Sonia who organised the visit.

Getting into the mood for Christmas with Gingerbread Men!

Junior Infants loved reading and joining in with the story ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and we thought it would be a good idea to have a go and baking some gingerbread men ourselves. We gathered all the ingredients we needed and measured and mixed the dough. We rolled it and used cookie cutters to shape our men and then we baked them in the oven in the staff room. The smell wafted through the school and it made everyone feel very hungry! The following day, we used icing and raisins to decorate our cookies. The children showed no mercy to the poor Gingerbread Men as they munched arms, legs and heads without hesitation! We all agreed they were delicious.

If you’d like to make some at home, we followed the Odlum’s Gingerbread Men recipe that you can find online.
