For our School Self-Evaluation we have decided to focus on Spelling.  Teachers will be focusing on specific spelling rules from the ‘single word spelling test’ and pupils will be given spelling lists appropriate to their level.

Focus on STEM & Irish Culture

By | 2018-10-15T09:11:09+00:00 October 15th, 2018|School News|0 Comments

This year we have decided to focus on STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Maths) at each class level.  We will continue with the Scratch Computer Programming. Mr. O’Brien’s class will be taking part in the VEX Robotics, Ms. Mangan/Ms. O’Brien’s class will be doing the Engineering in a Box Initiative in conjunction with the Tyndall Institute and kindly sponsored by Jacobs Engineering.  

We will also be focusing on promoting our Irish  culture.  Pupils will learn a number of Irish songs at each class level and perform them to parents during Seachtain na Gaeilge.
