Third Class Shape and Space

Third Class have been exploring how to create and extend patterns in 2D shapes. They have also been working on creating symmetry using pegs. The past two weeks, we have been investigating the properties of 3D shapes. The children made excellent 3D shapes by cutting and folding nets. They also constructed 3D shapes using playdough and match sticks! We went on 2D and 3D shape hunts and found lots of shapes around our school!

Third Class Science

Third Class have been busy experimenting with light and sound during our Science lessons recently. The children created their own electricity circuits and we were delighted to see the bulbs light up! We also created paper megaphones and predicted whether they would make our voices louder, which they did.

So proud of our school choir. They performed brilliantly in Fairgreen Shopping Centre for Carlow Volunteer Centre and most recently we got to visit St. Fiacc’s House. We thoroughly enjoyed both performances and we were delighted to be joined by some of Mr. Kelly’s guitar group. A huge well done to the school choir.

Thanks to everyone for supporting us. Looking forward to Peace Proms in 2020! :)

A huge thank you to Mr Nolan and especially Corporal Leon Deere (Past Pupil of St Fiacc’s N.S) for organising an amazing trip to the Curragh Army Base for 6th class students. We saw Michael Collins’ armoured Rolls Royce car along with a massive display of military weapons and got a tour around the modern history museum. Children got some hands on action with ration packs, weapons and equipment as well as having a a tour of a very modern and sophisticated army tank. Corporal Deere and his colleagues really put on a great show for all the children and it was both interesting and lots of fun. Children got a great appreciation of conditions and life in the army. It was a super experience for all!
