This month has been a busy month for the children. At the end of May we had our sports day. The children really enjoyed the day between medal and novelty races, and the obstacle course. They also got to get a 99 as well!

Enrich Visit

On Tuesday, the children got to visit the Enrich Environmental site. The previous week, we had a visit in to school from Natasha who spoke to the children about composite and the environment. On the site visit day, the children got to see the different processes of making compost and we even got to see some sample hurleys that they made there. The children then went to the woodland area to play some games and explore the woodland area. Have a look below at some of the things that we got up to!

Active Schools Week

On Friday, we were very lucky to have such nice weather that we were able to go for our school walk along with the rest of the school. We started in school 2 and headed for the GAA pitch while passing through the village. We then turned at the pitch and headed back towards the school.

On Wednesday, we had a visit in from Olympian Liam Foley. Liam spoke to the children about his very busy sporting schedule and his experience in the Los Angeles Special Olympics. The children were very impressed with Liam's dedication to all of his sporting activites and how he is able to take part in so many different sports. Liam also passed around his Olympic medals, and the children got to hold them.

Spinx the Bearded Dragon

Last week we had a visit from Spinx the bearded dragon. Spinx, owned by Kelsey, is only nine months old so he is still quiet young. His diet mainly consists of vegetables as he is still young. The children got to ask questions about Spinx and bearded dragons in general. We also learned that his tail is longer than his body! Have a look at him below.

Under the Hawthorn Tree

For the past few weeks, the pupils have been busy working on the novel 'Under the Hawthorn Tree' by Marita Conlon-McKenna. The novel, set during the time of the Great Famine in Ireland, tells of the story of three siblings on the search for their long lost aunts. The pupils enjoyed reading the novel and learning about the Famine. Some activities that we did to explore the novel included creating a new book cover, comparing characters in the novel, and a book review.
