3rd class had a very busy first term. We read a lovely story about a dragon. We drew our own dragons and we wrote some dragon stories and poems.
We also learned a lot about Ancient Egypt. We made Ancient Egyptian death masks and we drew Queen Nefertiti.We wrote our names in hieroglyphics.
We also did projects
We learned all about our Solar System and we painted Super Moons
The knitting and Crochet Club have had a busy first term. Our first project was to knit a large number of squares which we used to make a colourful blanket celebrating our schools special 150th anniversary.
We put a border around the blanket in our school colours. The finished blanket can be seen in the display outside the computer room.
We have been busy knitting lots of other things also.

3rd- 6th classes competed in the Terenure College Primary Schools Cross Country Competition for the first time ever and we returned with many medals. Well done girls!!
We are loving our daily “Wake and Shake”.Drop Everything and Dance on a Friday really excites us 🙂 Keep an eye on twitter for our videos!
We had a Senior School assembly this morning to mark the start of Advent. The 6th classes explained the Advent wreath to us and they also placed some Old Testament symbols on the Jesse Tree. Ms. Hume presented the monthly award for homework and she officially launched our food appeal for the St.Vincent de Paul Society.
We are scientists in Senior Infants.
We investigated Cookies! Yummy!
We tested the cookies to see what happens when we put them into water. We looked at them through a magnifying glass too.
We tasted them at the end- there are no photos of us eating them because we gobbled them up too quickly!
The Senior Infants went on a visit to the Corner Bakery in Terenure. We saw lots of lovely cakes and buns.
Cara and Kate came to visit us in school. They showed us how to put on icing and decorate the cupcakes! Delicious! The cupcakes tasted so good.

We were delighted to welcome Denis Bastick and Eoghan O’Gara with the Sam Maguire on Tuesday October 8th. This is the 4th time the cup has visited our school in the last 5 years. We all went in to the P.E hall and each class got a photo taken with the players and the cup.
We hope to welcome Sam back again next year !
