Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Moms, Mams, Mommies, Grandmothers, Aunts and Sisters who help us everyday to be super children that we are.

Bhí seachtain iontach againn. Bhíomar ag canadh as gaeilge i rith an seachtain. Ag deireadh an seachtain bhí ceolchoirm sa halla. Bhí an spórt againn. Bhí tráth na gceist ag rang a trí freisin. Bhaineamar taitneamh mór as!! Féach ar na pictiúirí!!! 

Science - Sound Waves

March 13, 2019

Today we had lots of fun investigating how sound waves travel. Using a bowl with clingfilm wrapped tightly around it, some sugar, a baking tray and a wooden spoon we made some noise and watched the sugar bouncing on the clingfilm. After banging the baking tray we decided to see how the sugar reacted to the whole class shouting....we had great fun!! 

Art - Print

March 12, 2019

We have been working on ‘print’ during our art lessons over the last few weeks. The boys have produced some beautiful works of art including romantic Valentine’s Day pieces. Our print art work has ranged from finger print painting to print using shaving foam (very messy!!) to pulled string prints. The boys have thoroughly enjoyed these art lessons. To conclude our print, we looked at Claude Monet and produced some magnificent paintings of our own of the infamous ‘bridge over a pond of water lillies’ out Monet!!!!!

Pancake Tuesday - 5th March

March 12, 2019


We enjoyed lovely warm pancakes served with lemon and sugar toppings on Tuesday afternoon. The boys loved their surprise at the end of the day and the pancakes went down a treat!! Some plates were even licked clean!!!!! 

Project work on the Ancient Egyptians

March 12, 2019

We were very busy during the month of January working on the Anient Egyptians. The boys combined their learning from the classroom with their own independent research to produce fabulous projects. Each group was given a chance to present their project the class which was a great learning experience for all!! Take a look at our work..

Happy Christmas!!

December 21, 2018

We’ve had a great year so far, the boys have worked so hard and we performed two fantastic shows for all the parents to see over the last two days. Our show was the story of ‘The Pied Piper’ with some songs from the popular film ‘The Greatest Showman’. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and safe New Year from everyone in Ms. Ahern’s 3rd Class. 

Junior Conferring at U.C.C.

December 5, 2018

On the 22nd of November we visited U.C.C. for a guided tour of the Aula Maxima, the Honan Chapel, the Quad and the Crawford Observatory. This tour proved to be a great hit with the boys and everyone learned lots from the trip. The boys were given gowns to wear throughout the trip which made us feel part of the college. We were taught about the history of the university by our tour guides, who were very informative, and we were even shown inside a 'Bothán'. This fantastic tour finished up with a junior conferring ceremony, a scroll and some goodies for all. We had a very enjoyable day and hopefully the boys will remember this trip in years to come when they are wearing their own graduation gowns!! 

Art Work Sept/Oct

December 5, 2018

We have had a very busy year to date in 3rd class. The boys have been working very hard in all subjects but have produced some wonderful pieces of art. In geography and science we have looked at different buildings and bridges. The boys did some home based research on a bridge of choice. We then used warm and cold colours to create a sea and sunset painting where they carefully drew on a bridge. They are fabulous pieces of work!! We looked at paintings of buildings by James Rizzi and recreated these also. They have taken pride of place outside our classroom over the last few weeks and have been catching the eye of lots of other people in the school. These aren't just any ordinary buildings!!! Well done boys!!!
