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.

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.

One book, one community- Sky Hawk

Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis was the chosen book for the One Book One Community Project 2018. The girls in fourth and fifth class in North Pres. read this book along with other children from other schools including Blarney St., St Vincent’s Primary, St Vincent’s Secondary, The Mon Primary, The Mon Secondary, The AG and Gaelscoil Pheig Sears. Ms O’ Brien’s class did many extra activities associated with the novel including projects and artwork. A number of girls participated in an art workshop with their parents where they made paper mache birds. There was a quiz held between all the participating schools in the area. Our Sky Hawk adventure ended with a celebration in the Blackpool Library. All schools were in attendance and performed musical and poetry numbers. This event was also part of Cork’s Lifelong Learning Festival. The girls’ projects and artwork were displayed in the Blackpool Children’s Library for the fortnight over Easter.

Science- Paper Bags

Here is an account of the experiment from a 5th class pupil: We did an experiment about how to make a paper bag. We split up into teams and got a €2 budget. Masking tape was 10c and a sheet of paper was 20c. Our group bought 5 sheets of paper and 10 pieces of masking tape. We made a bag and then we went outside and had races with our paper bags and saw which bag could hold the most water bottles. The most was 6.
