Climate Action Week 14th – 18th October

Climate Action Week 14th – 18th October

We celebrated Climate Action Week and raised awareness in our school about Climate Change. The Green Schools Committee worked very hard in the lead up to Climate Action Week, coming up with ideas and activities for all the classes.

We had a wonderful week. All classes watched a PowerPoint about Climate Change.

Juniors, Seniors and 1st Classes planted wildflowers with Mr. O Leochain. We had a guest speaker from the AIT. Chris Mc Cormack spoke to all the children in 6th Class about Climate Change and the effect it is having on our earth.

We had an art competition for 2nd and 3rd classes.

Both 4th classes made their own wonderful projects at home based on Climate Change. They were excellent! 4th Classes showcased their projects to all the other classes in the school. They explained thoroughly what each project was about and all the others classes learnt a lot from their projects.

            Climate Action Week was a great success!

We had great fun learning about Climate Change, raising awareness about Climate Change and taking action to combat Climate Change. A biog thank you to the Greens Schools Committee for all their hard work!

Remember everyone “A Green Space is A Better Place”

4th Class Irish Heritage Project

Celebrating Ireland`s Heritage

The cultural heritage of Ireland includes a wide array of monuments, objects, landscapes and structures that were produced by the inhabitants of Ireland over the last nine to ten

thousand years. 4th Classes created projects at home during the month of February and March “Celebrating Ireland`s Heritage”. These projects were on display for all classes during Seachtain na Gaeilge . All the childrens’ ideas, imagination and project work were outstanding and they should be highly recommended for a job well done. Thank you to all the parents for their help.There was a focus on using recyclable objects for their projects as part of Green Schools Recycling theme.Well done to both 4th classes!

Summer Term 4th class

Ms. Brennan’s class completed individual projects on Italy, while Mr. Kilbride’s completed individual projects on Mexico. All the children worked very hard in class and at home to create wonderful projects for all to read and learn from.

Both classes created lovely works of art. We created our own Cherry Blossom Trees using sponge, paint, glue and crepe paper. We are all looking forward to the summer holidays and we created self-portraits with glasses that look into the future. The lenses are a window into what the children will be doing over the holidays!

Spring 4th class.

We were very busy this term. We did a project on Italy in Geography in groups of five. We learned about Italian food, customs and sport. The Green schools project this term was Recyclable Art. The theme of our spring art was animals and plants. We enjoyed writing stories in English. In Irish for  Seachtain na Gaeilge  we had a class quiz.
