Anthony’s 1st Class

Bhí an t-ádh orainn Dé hAoine nuair a tháining Jonathan ar chuairt lena ghiotár! Sheinneamar ár Maracas agus chanamar ‘Meicsiceo’ le Mundy.

Bhí an sneachta an-fhuar agus bhíomar ag brionglóideach faoi thíortha níos teo. Tar éis ár gceachtanna faoi Meicsiceo agus na hamhráin iontach a chanamar le linn Seachtain na Gaeilge, bhí ‘Meicsiceo’ foirfe don ár Maracas! D’athraíomar na focail beagán agus táimid an-bhródúil as! Bain taitneamh as!

Jonathan came to visit on Friday, and brought his guitar to play with us! We played the Maracas we made during Art and sang Mexico by Mundy.

The recent snow had us dreaming of hotter countries, and after learning so much about Mexico in SESE and singing some wonderful songs during Seachtain na Gaeilge, Mundy’s song was perfect for our Maracas. We changed the words a little bit and we’re very proud of it! Enjoy!


As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, 1st Class played Gaelic Football with 2nd Class. With skills, flicks and plenty of flair, we have some budding Gaelic Footballers in our midst!


Our Science Exhibition with Shane’s 1st Class and Maureen and Cathy’s 2nd Classes had a magnificent variety of experiments to marvel at. From erupting volcanoes, dancing raisins and flying balloons, to tumbling tornadoes and glowing lava lamps, we had plenty amazing experiments to show 1st and 2nd Class!


First Class have won the Líne is Fearr prize for lining up quietly a couple of times recently. They voted for a trip to the playground which was great fun. Orla’s Junior Infants joined us!

Jonathan’s First Class created amazing vehicles from cardboard – an incredibly creative bunch!!


Check out our Cubism-inspired Christmas art! The children also created a forest of wonderful Christmas trees!
