Here is a diary with lots of lovely reflective activities for children to complete during their time at home.
We hope that you and your families are well during these challenging times.
This unprecedented public health crisis means that all aspects of everyday life now face significant disruption, including work and school.
We have linked some suggested activities and resources (Exceptional Closure Activities Tab Above or click on the buttons below) that you may wish to avail of with your children over the coming weeks.
You will know what is most appropriate for your children and families during this difficult period. The activities and resources suggested do not need to be used and teachers will not be formally monitoring or assessing them on our return to school. They are intended merely as potentially helpful suggestions.
The suggestions listed should be treated as a menu, you can choose as many, as few, or none if you wish.
We respectfully suggest that you encourage your children to continue reading and to keep up work on Maths tables.

Congratulations to Hannah who represented our school in the Regional final of the INTEL MINI SCIENTIST in Shannon in December. Hannah was awarded one of the top prizes and will go on to represent Munster & Connacht in the ALL IRELAND FINAL in Maynooth University on Wednesday 29th January 2020
Well done Hannah and we wish you the very best of luck with THE DISPOSABLE TRUTH project.
Watch this spot!!
Ms Burkes 3rd Class learned about Climate Change. They watched videos about Climate Change, learned about Greta Thunberg and her boat journey to New York . They loved visiting the Science Fair in the hall and were fascinated by all the projects.
They collected 85 euro to donate to teamtrees.org and they will plant 85 trees on behalf of the class in rainforests around the world.
In 3rd class they studied where our fruit comes from and checked fruit packaging at home and collated the data!
Interesting findings! Have a look at your own fruit!
THE BIG BANG THEORY
Mr Lynch's 2nd Class have been studying FORCE in SCIENCE. They decided to make a Balloon Stand to stand on. Now who would stand on a balloon? What do you think would happen? Yes !!! A BIG BANG!
Lets see what happened in Mr Lynch's Class
There was great excitement in school on Tuesday 14th November when 10 INTEL Scientists and Engineers came to our school to adjudicate the Science Fair. 111 children too part in what is a record 41 projects.
Hannah 6th Class was the overall winner of the Science Fair competition with her project entitled

This is Hannah's third time winning the school Science fair. The very best of luck to her in the Munster Final and in her Scientific future .
Congratulations and Well Done to everyone who took part ...take a bow!
