6th Classes are exploring Minecraft Education as part of our Digital Framework for the school. Children are using Code to navigate their way through a series of tasks. We are looking forward to more fresh challenges in the coming weeks.

6 Week Cricket Programme

We are always really happy in St Fiacc’s to try out new sports so we are delighted that Leinster Cricket Coach, Jimmy Dooley, is coaching numerous classes as part of a 6 Week Cricket programme in school. Great fun was had this week and we are looking forward to the next session already. A huge thanks to Mr Nolan for organising!IMG_5246 IMG_5247 IMG_5248 IMG_5249 IMG_5252 IMG_5255 IMG_5257 IMG_5258

Assembly:Gareth Brooks Visit

IMG_5073 IMG_5070 IMG_5072

We are using our IT Boards in classrooms throughout the school to access Assembly throughout the past two years. Today, Mr Brennan was joined by 6th class for an Advent service, our gardening correspondant along with Ms Fleming and we also had a special visit from a dodgy looking Gareth Brooks live from his ranch in Colorado! We are using IT to the full here in St Fiacc’s to ensure that the children are not missing out on all the latest school news!

Science week 2021

Third class really enjoyed science week and took part in different activities and investigations. We built tin foil towers, came up with new uses for paper clips, made paper helicopters, measured shadows throughout the day on our sundials, and investigated how many people it would take to stand on a table with balloons underneath before the balloons burst!

We built tall tinfoil towers:

AA5AD731-3488-4CA7-9EF0-B2E554621ECF 21CE29C5-8A7E-4D28-A1AA-D3DC4F7BE2AB 2B7068BD-0715-4CC3-94F2-03AEE756DC2D C07F5EF3-517B-4DFF-9C8C-118788AA5CDF 871E803F-5AF1-4151-A0C8-860E8A5BE6DE D52BD30A-BA30-4F46-AAAD-5A072137865C 93545320-6520-4414-9A96-04D086759CF3 82CBB3D8-B55B-4BC2-899A-BD824FACD34A 1E3984FA-10E5-49E4-A805-053515B9DAB6 41251F1D-3C37-489A-B12B-8CD6A13758CF 8E16F890-1957-4553-8890-CF7D96EF7C98 01C8236B-6DEA-4211-BF33-03059A294269 1EFA3077-7E7E-4B23-91B8-1E9CEC1542A4

Lastly we created rainbow explosions:

F32BDE15-570A-41D7-BB27-FDCEC9F197C1 616D8468-A963-4E07-86A0-D576F7164F1D ED0D3877-BAB7-4E78-A7B3-9C26EE9D9044 FBB36600-90C9-491D-9CB1-685728BF83A9 F8AACBC8-501A-48FB-BD14-0E30B7759378 A7F3838C-D485-419F-9D90-C543263ACD64 E4BC5CD0-9B10-4410-BBE8-D4EF887F0B1E 30F81345-EB09-4A9A-BF69-21DD7243FDA6
