We have been having lots of fun with the Céilí Community this week in Room 9. We have been learning new songs with lots of actions and listening to lovely stories about God. We practised today in the classroom with Sr. Ena for the assembly on Thursday. We have a lovely catchy song to sing. Come and see us perform on Thursday at 1pm in the hall!
On Wednesday February 18th the school round of The Eason’s Spelling Bee took place in the school hall. There were 40 pupils taking part- ten pupils from each room in 5th and 6th Class. After receiving many difficult spellings and spelling them all correctly, Molly Mc Kiernan from room 31, won the competition.
On Thursday the 12th of March, the County Meath final of The Spelling Bee took place in the school hall, with Molly representing the school. There were 41 pupils taking part in total. Molly got to four out of five rounds but unfortunately was knocked out. She received an Eason’s Spelling Bee dictionary and t- shirt, for getting so far in the competition. She did a wonderful job of representing the school and she thoroughly enjoyed the competition. Well done Molly!
We planted grass heads at school. We used soil and seeds and we planted them in pairs.
They needed lots of water, air and light to grow. Their hair grew a lot every day. I think they might need a haircut! Their hair is green for St Patrick’s day.
We also set up an experiment to see what happens if we take away one of the things that plants need to grow. We gave one plant no water, another plant no air and a third one no light. Watch this space to see what happened to them!
Happy St Patrick’s Day from all the grassheads and all the boys and girls in Room 9!

We really enjoyed Biodiversity Day, which was on Wednesday 11th February. We would like to thank Mrs Nally for organising fantastic guest speakers to come in and talk to us about many different aspects of biodiversity. In 5th class, we had visits from Aidan Gray, who spoke to us about coastal biodiversity, and from James Murray, who told us all about biodiversity on the River Boyne. We also loved dressing up as part of the biodiversity theme!
There was lots of red and pink in the classroom for Valentine’s day on Friday.
In the afternoon we went to the PE hall for our skipathon. Some of the children were able to skip over 100 times without stopping! It was lots of fun!
It is Catholic Schools week this week. We have been learning about how we should live like God wants us to live. We love one another. We are kind to each other. We share and we are honest.
We celebrated Grandparent’s Day on Wednesday. We made beautiful portraits of our nanas and grandads! They look fabulous!
Granny Peggy came to visit our classroom today for Grandparents’ Day.
She told us lots of interesting things about when she was in primary school in Dublin. She didn’t have to wear a school uniform when she was in school! She also had to do 7th class because she was too young to go to secondary school – you had to be 14.
We really enjoyed our visit from Granny Peggy. Thank you and Happy Grandparents’ Day from everyone in Room 13.
We had a great day today in room 26. The Santa Dash was so much fun, we gave and received Kris Kindle presents and then we had a dance party! We are very excited for Christmas next week and we hope everyone has a wonderful break. We’ve certainly earned it after our magnificent Christmas Pageant on Tuesday night!! Merry Christmas!
We had great fun today on our last day of school for 2014! We had a Santa dash around the school and we all wore in our Christmas jumpers and hats. The whole school was out running! It was a really busy week! We were playing some board games , doing art, our Christmas play and we even did some baking.
We have had a great year so far! It was great to end 2014 with lots of laughter and smiles. Happy Christmas to all!
The actors and actresses in room 9 have had a busy couple of weeks getting ready for their Christmas play extravaganza- Jesus’ Christmas Party. They sang the songs so beautifully and really got into character for the play. Hollywood watch out! Happy Christmas every one!
