Spring in the Junior Room

Spring in the Junior Room

St. Bridget’s Day heralded the start of spring. We have had a very busy start to 2015, and we can now proudly call ourselves published authors! Books from all classes will be swapped with other schools and we are sure we have represented ourselves and our school well wherever our books end up! Thanks to all the mums and dads who worked so hard on the books, it is such a rewarding project for the children and we have learned a lot throughout the whole process.

In Science, we learned about Forces, and push and pull. Killian and Seán made fantastic toys from recycled materials to show the force of push/ pull in everyday objects. Well done boys!

Midterm break will be on Thursday and Friday the 19th and 20th of February.

Our Fun February birthday babies are Eoghan in Junior Infants, who is five now, and Ellie and Béibhinn who are birthday twins! Their moms were side by side in the hospital seven years ago, and the girls have been inseparable since!!

In Maths, we are learning about the time, days, months, years and hours and minutes in Seniors and First, so ask us some tricky questions- we might just surprise you!!


March Magic babies are Matthew Quinn Sheila Gately who will be five and Grace Creedon who will be six.  We hope the mums get a nice rest on Mother’s Day, the 15th of March. School will be closed on Monday and Tuesday the 16th and 17TH of March, and Easter holidays begin at 12.30 on the 27th of March. School reopens on Monday the 13th of April.

Artful April babies are Seán Glynn, Mark Bruen, Eoan O’ Neill, Meadbh Costello and Lauren Kilduff. Happy birthday to you all.
