Art Club

Art Club finished today with a little party and certificates for the children’s participation and achievement. We had a wonderful 7 weeks that saw the children begin with Halloween themed printing, make pumpkin pom poms and spider webs. Throughout the weeks the children used salt dough, made fairy doors, created an all about me t-shirt and finally worked together to create a biodiversity themed display for all in our school to enjoy.

Science Week

Discover Lismore transformed 1st and 2nd Class into a crime scene during Science Week. The children were tasked with solving a very serious crime. They studied police reports, DNA profiles and finger prints to try and eliminate suspects. They also used a real life scientific technique called paper chromatography to find out what pen was used to write a crucial piece of evidence.

The children worked really well to decide as a team who they thought committed the crime. They presented their suspect and their reasons to the class.

It was a very exciting day in 1st and 2nd Class!


1st and 2nd Class have been very busy creating and presenting TV programmes on TMB TV. They became news reporters and presented their weekend news to the camera, they worked hard to ensure they used many time connectives, full sentences and speak with expression. They also became special guests on TMB TV as gaeilge. The children were interviewed on our TG4 style channel. Great fun was had by all and each special guest was welcomed with wonderful applause. We are looking forward to see who will make an appearance on our channel next week!

Religion in 1st and 2nd Class

1st and 2nd have been spending some time thinking about people they love who are no longer with us. They made rosary beads with Ms. Troy to pray for their loved ones, Fr. Tom very kindly blessed the children’s rosary beads. The children also created a ‘We Remember…’ display for the school ethos board.

Art Club

Week 3 of Art Club was all about ‘Me!’. The children wrote their name using a raised salt technique. They also began a t-shirt centered all around their likes and dislikes. They took great care when choosing images, words and colour.

Halloween in 1st and 2nd Class

1st and 2nd have been very busy talking all things Halloween! The children compared and contrasted pumpkins and turnips as Jack o Lanterns. They learned all about the Day of the Dead and compared and contrasted it to Halloween in Ireland. The boys and girls also experimented with vinegar and baking soda to make spooky ghosts.

We finished with a class of spooky and wonderful characters on Friday! Well done for the fantastic effort made by everyone.

Picture Maps

1st and 2nd Class have been learning about picture maps and picture keys. They identified many pictures and symbols used on Dublin Zoo’s picture map. They also created treasure maps.

Do This in Memory Programme

2nd Class have been busy preparing Artwork for their first Do This in Memory Mass, that takes place this Sunday 20th October. All the children will have a special part to play throughout the Do This in Memory Programme.

As there are no set places for these masses, children will sit with their family.
