Welcome to our website. On behalf of the children, teachers, Special Needs Assistants, ancillary staff, parents, friends and the Board of Management, I am delighted to greet you.

The bulbs we planted way back in October have finally emerged now that it is Spring. Everyone was very excited to be able to take their plant home. Hopefully with some light and watering they will continue to grow until the flower opens. We planted daffodil, crocus and snowdrop bulbs but the children do not know which flower they planted. So we will have to wait and see!
In Room 11, We all had had great fun making Jelly last week.
We used our skills from Maths to know exactly how many ML of hot water to add to the Jelly, using a measuring jug to help us.
We let it set over the weekend in the fridge and then enjoyed it on Valentines Day! We also wrote out the method of how to make Jelly in English.
The boys and girls in E2 have been playing with giant polydrons in the mornings lately and you would not believe some of the fantastic constructions that have been completed. We have had stars, chairs, boats, houses, Christmas trees and even a house for a Hatchimal. The children are using their fantastic imaginations and their ingenius minds to create these constructions and have Ms Nolan amazed by their skills!
