  • 5th Class Dramaíocht 2021-06-25 - Check out the talented actors in 5th Class. It wasn’t looking very promising on the morning when I saw the rain drizzling on the window.

  • Architects of the Future 2021-06-19 - In Susan’s 2nd class, we learned about Gaudi and created gorgeous paper mosaics in the style of his work. We then learned about Hundertwasser, who was also inspired by Gaudi. Hundertwasser created wonderful architecture that was unique, environmentally-friendly and a little bit whacky. Inspired by Hundertwasser, we created our own buildings from recycled and found […]

Have a look at some of our activities below. Impromptu puppet shows […]

On Thursday April 29th, 5th Class escaped the four walls of the classroom to visit some of the places mentioned in our novel the Making of Molly.

  • Learn Together Displays 2021-04-30 - It was with a heavy heart that Susan took down our Sikhism display from outside Fionnuala’s office, but she replaced it with a Passover one, and then with a Judaism one, so she got over it! Even though we didn’t learn all about Islam this year, we did learn about Ramadan. So, watch this space […]

Here are some photos of the fun we had. Thanks Gareth!
