Maths Week Quizzes

We had two Math Quizzes in the hall on Thursday as part of Maths Week.  The teams were all mixed, with children from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th all being on teams together.  Ms Geraghty, Ms Donnellan, Ms Ferguson and Mr Brown’s classes took part in the first quiz. Ms Carmody, Ms Walsh, Ms McNicholas and Ms McMahon’s classes took part in the second quiz. Everyone had a great time!

The winners of the first quiz – a draw!

Taking on the Teachers!

Our sixth classes took part in the Active Ireland “Taking on the Teachers” challenge. We did basketball relays, tug of war, a penalty shoot out and golf (which everyone found hard!) At the end of the challenge, it was a draw but sixth class won after a basketball shoot out. Everyone was delighted, especially when they got a night off homework as a prize!

In even better news, we just learned that our school, along with another school in Donegal, won the competition so we have won €150 of sports equipment for the school.

We are all looking forward to the rematch!

Goal Jersey Day

We held a Goal Jersey Day on the 16th September, the Friday before the All Ireland of Dublin v Mayo. We all enjoyed dressing in our favourite jerseys and each pupil was asked to donate to GOAL. We collected €720 and today,Louise from the Goal organisation, visited our school.all-ireland

In the morning she facilitated two Drama workshops with 6th classes which were great fun and made us think about the work of Goal and life in a developing country. In the afternoon she spoke to 5th & 6th class about the work undertaken by GOAL in countries worldwide. We learned a lot about the work of GOAL and how we helped contribute to it through our donation. We will continue to learn about global citizenship, climate change, migration, the refugee crisis, conflict and natural disasters in our SPHE work in class.

Biodiversity Day !

We held our Biodiversity day in the Halla on Friday 15th. It was a fantastic display of all the hard work done by all the classes.

There were lots of projects on display covering a wide range of topics including, biomes, bunnies, bees and birds!

Well done to the Green School Committee for all their hard work over the last two years.

Later in the afternoon we held our National Spring Clean. All the classes took part and collected lots of rubbish.

Sean and Callum even found €5 !  You can see some pictures of the day in the videos below. There are also some pictures on Balbriggan.info.

Geography- The Counties of Ireland

We are learning a poem to help us remember all the counties of Ireland!
We are Munster’s counties fair.
Cork, Kerry, Limerick Clare,
Waterford, Tipperary here we are,
Welcoming you from near and far.

Leinster is beyond compare,
Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow, Kildare,
Wexford, Offaly, Laois, Kilkenny, Longford and Louth are as good as any.
Meath, Westmeath and that is all. over now to province small.

Connaught is the smallest oh,
Galway, Leitrim and Mayo,
Roscommon, Sligo that’s the lot,
Just one more verse for you I’ve got.

We are Ulster’s counties nine,
Let’s forget the dividing line,
Donegal, Derry, Antrim, Down, all our counties of renown.
Armagh, Monaghan and Tyrone, Cavan, Fermanagh now all are known.
