4th Class Seomra Chormac

Seomra Chormac are really busy this week! This week we’ve been learning all about weather! We learned the weather forecast symbols as well making our own rain gauge to measure how much rain fell in the last week! Our results showed that 400ml of rain fell in the last week in Scoil Ghrainne! We’ve also been measuring the temperature every day using our thermometer. In Irish, we’ve been learning a ‘comhrá’ about pastimes! Maith sibh! Long multiplication is our topic in Maths and all the children are being really persistent with their work! In English we’ve been learning about the present tense as well as doing a lot of procedural writing!    ...

1st Class Seomra Dubh

 Hi Everyone, We have been learning a lot in Seomra Dubh since coming back to school! This month, we’ve been learning a lot about Autumn and the many changes it brings. We’ve made beautiful trees highlighting Autumn. We hope you like all the different colours! We also created a nature table. Some children brought in leaves from the different types of trees as well as conkers and acorns. We just celebrated Science Week. Our experiment was called “The Colourful Milk Swirl Experiment”. We tested how the fat in milk mixed with washing up liquid caused food colouring to swirl around in milk. Take a look below! We hope you enjoyed reading about our great work! Seomra Dubh...

Autumn! – by Ms. O’ Connor’s 2nd Class

Over the past few weeks the boys and girls in Ms. O’ Connor’s second class have been learning all about Autumn. We discovered that certain animals such as bears, bats and hedgehogs all hibernate for the winter and have to gather and store food before they go to into hibernation. We also discovered that some birds migrate to warmer countries for the winter. We did a lot of work on researching swallows to discover why they migrate, the path they use when they migrate and where they go to when they leave Ireland. It was all super fun to learn about! Over the past month we have also been learning about different trees. We can now identify the leaves and seeds of ash trees, beech trees, horse chestnut trees and oak trees. We then went on a nature walk to collect leaves and seeds. After our nature walk, and with the help of Ms. Scully and Mrs. O’ Connor’s second classes, we created a big display on the school art board! Here are some pictures:    We loved learning about Autumn but we really can’t wait until Winter comes!...

4th Class Seomra Niamh

Hi everyone, We have had a very busy start to the year in Seomra Niamh. Every Tuesday morning for the last 6 weeks, 4th class has been taking part in cycling lessons in Scoil Ghráinne. Our instructor’s name was Richie. On the first day we learned to do a clothes check, bike check and helmet check. We learned how to brake properly. Next we learned that we should cycle on the left side of the road and how to signal when we want to turn left or right. After that we learned how to cycle in formation as a group. It was very important that we kept the correct distance. We also learned how to read road signs. On our last day we completed a difficult but awesome obstacle course. The lessons were very exciting and we felt happy and proud of our progress. We had great fun during the lessons and we feel confident that we can cycle safely on the road. We had a great time at cycling and hope Richie comes to visit us again. That’s all for now, Slán, Seomra...

Junior Infants in Seomra Donn

In Seomra Donn we have been learning the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill. Why not see if you can remember the nursery rhyme too! Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, And Jill came tumbling after.  Up Jack got and home did trot, As fast as he could caper; And went to bed and mend his head With vinegar and brown paper. We also made Jack and Jill’s bucket using crepe paper and pritt...

Seomra Oisín (5th Class – Mr Garvey)

Rang a 5 (5th class) have been very excited coming back to school this September. We have already one month completed and we have been very busy. Many of our boys and girls have been taking part in the “Cumann na mBunscoil” Gaelic Football competitions recently and they have shown magnificent progress in all of their skills. The whole of 5th class have been learning about the Islamic celebration of “Eid Al-Adha”. The Muslim children in our classes shared stories of how they celebrate “Eid” and the whole class has become aware of the customs and traditions celebrated by Muslims. We also enjoyed a party where food was shared and traditional clothing was shown. Our class has also been very busy in all of our subjects. In Gaeilge (Irish), we have been playing games and having conversations in the language. In maths we have been revising addition and subtraction using big numbers, doing word problems and learning about shape and space. In English, we have completed our final drafts of our recount writing pieces and they are now hanging proudly in our classroom. That’s all for now. Slán 🙂 Seomra...
