Sponsored Walk

The children went on a sponsored walk last Friday. The girls from 2nd to 6th walked to Fitzgerald's Park. The children got a chance to play in the playground and have a well deserved break before walking back. The children from Junior Infants to 1st class went on a walk of the Shandon area before having a break in St. Anne's park for some fun and games.

CAPER- Final session

The final session of CAPER (Children And Parents Enjoy Reading) was held recently in Senior Infants and 1st class. The children really enjoy these sessions when parents come in and read to them once a week. Thank you to all the parents that gave up their time to come in and read to the children.

Busy in the garden

Ms. Coleman and Ms. Conway have been very busy in the school garden recently. They have had lots of help from all of the classes. Some of the older girls helped painting tyres. We now have some very colourful minnions full of flowers welcoming us into our school everyday as well as some bright colourful flowerbeds in the garden. There is also a new insect hotel for any insects who feel like having a little holiday in North Pres. The younger class helped with all the planting that was done. All the children are looking forward to see what will grow over the next few months.

Science- Floating and sinking

Recently the children from 2nd class and senior infants were working together to discover which items would float or sink in water. They tried lots of items. Before putting the things in the water the groups discussed whether they thought the items would float or sink. The children also checked whether air can float. They put an empty bottle of water and a full bottle of water in the water. They discovered the empty bottle of water floats and the full bottle of water sinks. This shows that air floats. They also tried it with balloons- one filled with air and the other with water. 2nd class also explained to the senior infants how to make their hair stand up by using a balloon and creating static electricity.

Senior Infants are doing the theme of 'the cafe' in Aistear. They made delicious rice krispie buns which they want to sell as part of their role play. Trouble is, the buns were so yummy, they've eaten most of the stock! Whoops!

100 Days Assembly

There was a very special assembly this week in the school. It is 100 days into the school year and we celebrated all the boys and girls who haven't missed one day since we started. The lucky boys and girls got a certificate and were also told that they were going bowling later in the week. Ms. O Brien's 4th & 5th class did a presentation on Australia. They told us some wonderful facts about the country before singing and dancing along to the "Locomotion"
