We have been learning all about life in Ancient Rome. We designed some shields like the ones worn by Roman soldiers long ago.
We made a ” tortoise” with our shields to show how the soldiers protected themselves in battle
We designed some shops and stalls
We did some projects
We wrote some interesting facts about the Romans. Click to read them!
The Senior Infant girls are reading Chicken Licken. We painted Chicken Licken and we drew all the characters in the story even Foxy Loxy.
Can you remember all of their names?

We also wrote about places we would love to visit on a hot air balloon ride. Click below to read our stories
Hot Air Balloon Ride
At our senior assembly on Friday January 27th the 6th classes presented a cheque to Gillian from Laura Lynn . The 6th classes raised over €2400 from their bake sale in early December. Well done to everybody involved !
The girls had great fun today, practicing their newly learned skipping skills, during Friday circuits 🙂
Our skipping workshops were a great success for all classes. The girls have learned lots of new skills and tricks from skipping coach Mark 🙂
We are delighted with how Our Active Flag initiative has been going. Children have been very enthusiastic about the range of activities outside of their regular PE classes. As part of this initiative we have undertaken a review of our Healthy Eating Policy. We will now become a food treat-free zone in school. We will no longer have a treat day on Friday and teachers will no longer give sweets as rewards
Some senior girls performed a rap telling us about this last Friday. Here are the words of the rap
Listen up girls we have a new rule
We’re banning treats in our healthy school
Fill up your boxes with healthy snacks
For our homework we will have jumping jacks
Move around jump up and down
Keep your feet moving on the ground
Keep your body healthy with fruit in your bag
Let’s go get our active flag
We all have a Super Trooper activity journal.There are lots of easy activities and challenges in the programme for all of the family and we know that the girls will love doing them.
