Seachtain na Gaeilge ( Week of Irish )

During Seachtain na Gaeilge we practised lots of Irish during the day. We learned a simple Irish Jig. We taught our Mammies and Daddies some Irish:

  • Hello: Dia duit ( Dee a gwitch )
  • Goodbye: Slán leat ( Slawn lat )
  • Thank you: Go raibh maith agat ( Guh rev moh agut )
  • You’re welcome: Tá failte romhat ( Taw fall che wrote )


St. Patrick’s Day

We cut out and glued Leprechaun Hats and we used bottle corks to paint flag patterns and shamrocks on our St. Patrick’s Day Cards. We did some lovely writing inside our cards too.

We also drew some lovely, Lucky Leprechaun’s by following a You Tube Art Hub video and I think you will agree they look fantastic!

We learned two songs for our St. Patrick’s Day Ceolchoirm: Lá ‘le Pádraig and I’m a little leprechaun which we performed with Ms. Mc Nulty’s Class and Ms. Concannon’s Class.  And we were “ar fheabhas”! ( excellent )

We have been learning about Spring over the last few weeks. Lots of events happen in Spring including the birth of baby animals and lots of flowers growing.

Pancake Tuesday has just passed and we learned how to make pancakes! Next Sunday is St Patrick’s Day. We found out all about his life with our sequencing cards and answered some questions all about St Patrick and his special day.

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

PostHeaderIcon Engineer’s Week 2019 in Room 1


Ms. Downey’s Class learned about all the different types of engineers this week.

Mr. Brady did some coding with the boys and girls using the Bee Bots.

Ms. Downey and Lydia and George from 6th Class helped the children to work in teams to plan, design and make a bridge using Polydrons.




The boys and girls had great fun going under the bridge!
