SEACHTAIN NA GAEILGE
Two members of our Student Council did a great job setting up our Conversation Coaxer this week for Seachtain na Gaeilge. Doesn't it look super?
The girls from 6th class have taken over responsibility of setting up the Conversation Coaxer. Didn't they do a great job setting up the Spring table? Fantastic teamwork! Well done girls!
Mrs Cleary enjoys setting up her "Conversation Coaxer". This involves preparing an interest table which reflects different themes and liturgical events (see our Sacred Space page) throughout the year. The idea is that children will be encouraged to pick up the objects and chat about them. It is also a link with home so that parents know what's happening in school and can show interest and enthusiasm.
This week the Conversation Coaxer is reminding us to be Active. Operation Transformation will visit us in school and film us for RTE. Click here to see our video.
This week is Science Week - 13th November 2017 - 19th November 2017. The children will be having lots of fun experimenting. The Conversation Table reflects the various elements of the primary school science curriculum such as energy & forces, magnetism, light, electricity, sound, environmental awareness & care and living things.
We celebrated Maths' Week from 16th October - 22nd October 2017. The children used their "Maths' Eyes" to find lots of connections with maths in their environment. They had great fun going around the school garden on maths' trails co-ordinated by Mr. O'Dwyer.
It is such a delight when our new Junior Infants begin school. We are thrilled to welcome them all and our "Conversation Coaxer" this week is a welcome table for our new pupils.
