Our very first virtual visit via zoom!!!! During Book Festival Week Cashel Library organised a virtual visit of the author Megan Wynne to our classroom. It was a wonderful experience and a first time for many using zoom. We learnt about Megan Wynne, she read an extract from her book and gave us some great types for writing stories. 

 

After learning about Ireland's owls we made owls using clay and then painted them. Here are a few of our masterpieces!

 

Weaving Wellbeing

During the month of September we competed the programme Weaving Wellbeing - returning to school after covid. There were 6 main themes which allowed us to explore our past experiences of covid 19 and how it effected our lives, covid 19 in the present and then we looked to the future and the positives which came too. Well done everyone for great participation. 

Our Rainbow Moments

Becoming aware of all the many positive moments in our lives over a weel. There were lots!

 

A virtual visit from Coláiste Mhuire Co- Ed. 

6th class, along with their parents are making important decisions regarding their next step in education. This week we had a virtual visit from Mr. Quinn. We look forward to hearing from other schools in due course. 

Henri Matisse

Just look at the amazing work by 5th & 6th class in recreating paintings by Henri Matisse. Surely some of them are worth millions of euro!!!!

 

"I scream, you scream we all scream for ice-cream!"

Thanks to Múinteoir Máire for this wonderful treat just before the Hallowe'en holidays. 

A virtual visit from Cashel Community School

5th and 6th class met Mr. Gallagher in November. Thanks Cashel Community School for a very informative account of your school. 

Seacláid Thé

5th & 6th have been reading and writing recipes in Irish. Today we made hot chocolate and wrote the instructions in Irish. 

 

Private Peaceful - Michael Morpurgo

over November and December, we read the novel Private Peaceful, which is set during World War I. The pupils really enjoyed the story, and created wonderful folders containing the work which they carried out about the novel. 

World War 1

After learning about World War 1 in history, we created these amazing war silhouettes. On the 11/11, at 11am we remembered all those who lost their lives during World War 1 and created poppies in remembrance to them. 

Merry Christmas to all!

Here is some of the wonderful Christmas art we created over the month of December.
