February 13th 2018

On Pancake Tuesday Ms. Downey’s boys and girls listened to the story of The Big Pancake and they knew it wasn’t a good idea for the pancake to take a ride across the river on the pig’s back : Yum! Yum!

They said the rhyme Mix a Pancake. Then it was time to flip a pancake:

decorate a pancake:

and finally eat a pancake!

Yum! Yum! Such fun

Today 5th class participated in a  Physical Activity study with the help of Ben, Roisin and Christine from DCU! They assessed our height, weight, fitness level, muscular strength, blood pressure and waist circumference. We also completed an in-depth questionnaire on physical activity and how often we engage in it during a week. Check out some of the photos and huge thanks to Ben, Roisin and Christine for asking us to participate in their research!

Wow, what a week we had for Green-Schools Week! We had great fun learning about all things green and taking part in our Green-School activities. We are working very hard to get our next Green-Schools Flag for Global Citizenship: Litter and Waste. Here are some of the activities that took place!

  • Global Goals Workshop: Ms. Goggins did a workshop with 6th class all about the UN’s Global Goals. These are a set of 17 goals that the UN wants countries around the world to work towards to make it a better place to live in
  • Recycling Around the World: Ms. Goggins also did a workshop with 4th class about how other countries recycle. Did you know that in Sweden they recycle 92% of their waste? They also turn waste into energy that can be used by rubbish trucks. Isn’t that clever?!
  • WOW Day: We had a walk on Wednesday encouraging as many children as possible to leave the car at home and travel to school in  a way that is better for the environment
  • Recycling: We teamed up with Recycle It! to recycle any unwanted electrical items that the school and parents had at home. We also finished our battery collection for WEEE and the Lara Lynn foundation. We collected almost 4,000 batteries!!! Not only are we helping the environment, we are helping children who are ill.
  • Green-Code: Sarah from 3rd class was the winner of our new green code with her song about recycling! Well done Sarah!
  • Prize-Giving: We held our prize-giving in the school hall on the last day of Green-Schools week. Some classes spoke about what they had learned during the week. We had performances from the finalists of our green-code competition and we announced the winners of our recycling batteries competition. Can you believe that 1st Class, Room 11 collected over 600 batteries?! Great job 1st class!!

Check out some of the pictures from Green-Schools week!
