To celebrate Easter, 5th and 6th Classes used clay to create eggcentric egg cups. Some turned out dotty, others stripy and a few were cracked! We had great fun making them. Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!

Our main event of Seachtain na Gaeilge this week was our Céilí Mór in the hall. We all dressed in green for the day and we had great fun learning the Siege of Ennis and An Dreoilín. Some of our very talented musicians entertained us with a variety of tunes and we had some lovely displays of Irish Dancing. 3rd and 4th class had a very competitive Tráth na gCeist earlier in the day and the winners were announced at the end of the Céili. It was a fitting start to the St. Patrick’s Day weekend!
Junior Infants have been having been learning lots about about Springtime in the last few weeks. We found several signs of Spring in the school environment and we enjoyed talking about Springtime on the farm.We even learned the difference between a dairy farm and a tillage farm! We completed our farm theme by making these cute woolly sheep!
