PostHeaderIcon Science For Fun – parents needed

20th September 2017


Science For Fun will be starting soon and we are looking for parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles to help out. 3rd class will be participating but you don’t need to have a child in those classes to help out. All help is welcome and appreciated. If you think you could join in the fun and help the children or if you have any questions, please speak to Laragh in the Parent’s Room.

The sessions will be on Wednesdays 9 to 10am from the 4th of October to the 15th of November excluding the 1st November (6 sessions in total).

September 2017

The Junior Infants have started the Jolly Phonics Programme. Jolly Phonics teaches children the letter sounds and how to put sounds together to make and read words. Each letter has a song too. We began with the ssss sound and the song: The snake is in the grass. Our next sound is ah and the song: Ants, ants, ants on my arm. We will spend a week on each sound at first but after Halloween we will do two sounds each week. Please check your child’s homework each Monday to see what sound we are on and help him/her to think of 3 easy words starting with that sound.

For more information see and make sure you attend Laragh’s Helping your child with Speaking / Reading / Writing Meetings after Halloween.

unnamed13 September 2017.

This week 2nd class in Room 15 have been preparing for the All Ireland Football Final.  We have been making flags and banners and listening to Dublin songs.  We have written all about the match and really hope Dublin will win the Sam Maguire Cup for the third year in a row.  However some of us said they wanted Mayo to win because it has been so long since they have taken home Sam.  Either way we are looking forward to an exciting match this Sunday.

We hope you all enjoy the match!
