1st Class visit to Trim Castle

The children in Room 10 had a lovely afternoon in Trim Castle.
We had a guided tour around the inside of the castle and went all the way up to the roof for a spectacular view of Trim.
Back in class the children have been creating their own projects on Trim gathering information that they learned at the castle. The children created a map to navigate around Trim, a project on the history of the castle and art work of Trim castle.

Our trip to Trim Castle

We went to Trim Castle to find out more about local history. (Nikole)

We learned that Hugh De Lacy built the beautiful castle in Trim. (Ciara)

We got a tour of the castle keep. The keep is a huge square building. It kept the people in the castle safe from attack. (Danny)

We went to the very top of the castle. I tried to  look for my house. I couldn’t  see it but I saw the church, Trim Castle Hotel and the River Boyne. (Kayla)

We drew maps about our journey to the castle and we are writing a report  about  all   that   we  learned  .    (Jesse)

Biodiversity at the Beach

On Thursday 14th May, the two fifth classes went on a trip to Bettystown beach to check out signs for biodiversity on the coast. We went with Aidan Gray from An Taisce and he told us the names of some of the shells that we found when we were there. We played lots of games but our favourite part of the day was the sand sculpture competition! Ms. Dineen, Ms. Coakley and Aidan were the judges and it was a very difficult decision to make! Check out the pictures of our wonderful designs!

We were learning about lifecycle of the chicken at school and we were very lucky to experience the life cycle before our very eyes. Here is what has been happening in room 9 this month!

First we got some eggs from the farmer. We had to put them in an incubator for 21 days. The incubator kept them warm for 21 days. On the 21st day they started to hatch. We could see the eggs starting to wiggle.

They started to peck at the egg shell in the morning and after lunch they popped out of the eggs. Teacher put it on the visualiser and we saw them hatch from the eggs. 4 lovely chicks hatched- one was black and white like a penguin and three were yellow.

It was so much fun to watch. The chicks started to get fluffy the next day. We love listening to them chirping. We named them Fluffy, Cuddles, Flash (he is very quick) and April.

On Friday we brought them out to the field for a little run around. They were pecking on the ground looking for worms. They packed their bags and left on Friday evening and now they are living on the farm with lots of space to run around. We will have updates on how they are getting on during the year and they might even come back to visit when they are full size chickens!

Bronnadh an Ghaelbhrataigh Aibreán 2015

 

Cailíní ón gCoiste i mBeairic McKee ag Bronnadh an Ghaelbhrataigh

Is mór an onóir…

 

Bhí an-lá againn inniú nuair a bhronnadh an Gaelbhratach orainn go foirmiúil i mBaile Átha Cliath. Bhuail na daltaí leis an Taoiseach, Enda Kenny.  Mhol sé iad as a gcuid iarrachtaí agus labhair sé féin a lán Gaeilge an lá sin.  Bhí an ghrian ag taitneamh anuas orainn agus bhí gach duine ag dul timpeall go geal gháireach.  Táimid an-bhródúil as na daltaí i mBunscoil Chlochair Mhuire. Rinne sibh sár iarracht chun an Gaelbhratach seo a bhaint amach. Maith sibh! Leanaigí oraibh ag labhairt na Gaeilge timpeall na scoile agus sa bhaile. Ná dean dearmad ar an manna breá a chum an Coiste:

Tír gan teanga, Tír gan anam

Scoil gan Gaeilge, Scoil gan croí
