4th class have been enjoying listening and responding to ‘Carnival of the Animals’ by Camille Saint – Saens. We created some mosaic pictures that were inspired by the music!
4th Class used the process of Chromatography to separate colours in markers. We used filter paper to separate colours in different markers. We then used the filter paper to create some cool Halloween pictures! We hope you like our pictures!
Following our learning on animals and their habitats, 4th class created some amazing habitats for an animal of their choice! Here are just a small selection of the wonderful habitats that were made during our STEM activities! Maith thú rang4!
Fourth class had great fun identifying trees on our school grounds! We enjoyed drawing leaves and doing leaf and bark rubbings.
Fourth class have been enjoying using iPads to research Halloween in other countries during our Geography lesson!
3rd class loved learning all about the Incas and created their own Inca inspired headdresses.
A huge congratulations to Raqibat and Kamal in 6th class who won the St Abban’s Virtual athletics competition for girls and boys. Over 350 students took part from local schools and Raqibat came out on top in the girls competition while Kamal came first in the boys section. We are very proud of their great achievements and we know that the future is bright for them both! Well done!
We had a beautiful end of school Mass today in St Clare’s church. A huge thank you to Fr Dunphy and Cathriona for making it such a special service. Also thanks to Mr Kelly on guitar and Chloe on harp for the lovely music. Well done to all the 6th class boys and girls for saying the readings and prayers at mass. We hope that all members of our school community enjoy the final weeks of school 2021.

6th class students were busy over the past few weeks planting potatoes in our raised bed and tomatoes, carrots, parsnips, beetroots and lettuce on our window sills. Tomorrow we will plant these plugs out into our raised bed for the summer! We also have some wildflowers growing in class (Thanks to Ms Killeen for the donation) and Sunflowers which we grew from seeds which the students are taking home to keep going growing themselves over the coming weeks!
