Paw Patrol visits the school

On Thursday, June 13th, the junior classes had a surprise visitor to the school. It was ‘Chase’ from Paw Patrol. Chase is a German shepherd who serves as a police and spy dog in Paw Patrol. He is the most mature of the dogs, and will always announce “PAW Patrol ready for action, Ryder, sir!” when the PAW Patrol is called on a mission. Our pupils in Infants, first and second were delighted to get a visit from Chase.

Hugh Lane Gallery Workshop

On Friday, 17th May and Tuesday, 21st May, respectively, Mr Malone’s 6th class boys and Ms Forde’s 6th class girls, visited the Hugh Lane Gallery in town to take part in a city wide scheme called Zoom@the HughLaneGallery. The aim of the scheme is to encourage the creative potential of children through looking at artwork in the Gallery’s collection and the making of art during an artist-led workshop arising from what the children will have seen and discussed. Initially the project is being aimed at twenty-six primary schools in the Dublin city area. A representative from the gallery will visit the school and give a presentation to the class ahead of this visit.

Gardening Team News

News from The Gardening Team

The New Gardening Team was formed in April 2019, to help Claire in the garden.  As part of the project, compost bins have been put into 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes. Raw fruit and vegetables only will be put into the bins, and each day the Gardening Team will empty the classroom bins into the compost bin in the garden. A layer of paper will also be added, and we should see the compost forming over the coming weeks and months.

Senior Infants News – Ms. Nulty

Mini-Beasts
Ms. Nulty’s class have been busy with an inquiry-based learning project. The children spent two weeks investigating and finding out the different things that mini-beasts need to grow and stay healthy. The children explored investigative equipment then used this equipment to observe bugs and insects in both the school garden and Stanaway Park. The children found out that our school garden is full of lady birds which must be kept safe. They then decided to make bug-hotels for the ladybirds and different mini-beasts in the school garden that may be in danger of getting stood on, thrown and killed. At the end of the project, the children made posters in groups to inform other classes how we can keep the ladybirds in our school garden safe. As this project was inquiry-based, the children found out all of the information all by themselves, without the help of Ms. Nulty. All the children had great fun!

Junior Infants – Ms. O’ Donovan

Ms. O’ Donovan’s Junior Infants planted Cress seeds in their class. The children learned all about what plants and seeds need to grow. Each child filled their own pot with compost and sprinkled some cress seeds on top. They also make sure to water their seeds every day. We will keep you updated on how our seeds grow…..

 

5 Days Later

After 5 days our seeds have grown and are ready for our Junior Infants to bring home. The children will mind their cress and water it every day – they may even taste it!
