Children’s internet Safety and Cyberbullying talk for parents/guardians support by Barnardos
The workshop focuses on the topic of their children’s internet safety and cyberbullying, including time for questions. IT offers parents an opportunity to consider how they can increase their child’s online safety and what to do if they suspect their child is experiencing cyber-bullying. Parents are encouraged to focus on how they can monitor their child’s use and online behaviour. There will be take home information that offers up to date information in relation to the apps their child may be using and associated safety considerations.
During the interval of the 3rd/4th class Molaga’s Got Talent final, Kevin I from Ms McGinley’s class read The Gruffalo to us. Kevin had rehearsed this a lot and really entertained everyone with his fantastic voices!!
Follow the link for a clip of one of his rehearsals, as well as a picture of a Gruffalo that Kevin drew.
After numerous trials and only being able to pick 16 boys from almost 60, Michael O Regan, Ms O Brien and Ms O Mahony headed off to Abbotstown for the FAI SPAR 5 aside soccer tournament. We had two teams entered into the competition. Both teams played very well considering the pace of the game and it being 5 a side soccer. The decision on who was to leave the group stages came down to the last match for one of the teams. Unfortunately St Ciaran’s knocked us out of the competition, however they went on to win the overall tournament on the day.
The boys played extremely well with outstanding performances from so many of them. A huge thank you to Ms Daly and Michael for organising the event. We wish the girls the very best of luck on Thursday 30th!
Ms O Brien’s group made coconut snowballs desserts. We made small balls of dough which we then rolled in sugar syrup and then into desiccated coconut. It was a messy lesson but lots of fun and there were even yummy to taste.
Painting with Ice
We poured different coloured paints into ice cube trays. We placed lollipop sticks in to the centre of each paint cube. We placed the trays into the freezer for 24 hours. When we removed the ice cubes of paint from the trays we the set about painting Christmas themed paintings. It was extremely messy but great fun.
Lemon Drizzle Cake
As a group we planned how to bake a lemon drizzle cake. We listed the ingredients and the method in sequence. Lucky us we got to go into the staffroom to bake the cake. We all took turns measuring, beating and mixing the cake. Ms O Brien placed the mixture into the oven for 55 mins at 180 degrees.
When it was cooled the next day we returned to the staffroom and mixed icing sugar and lemon juice together to make the drizzle icing. We were able to eat it immediately. It was delicious.
