The children from both Room 2 & 26 had a lovery Summer scavenger hunt on Monday on the Church green. The girls and boys had great fun working with their buddy readers to find lots of different summer objects.
Ms. Scanlon’s Junior Infants and their Fifth class buddies in Ms. Fay’s class went on a summer scavenger hunt around the Church green today. Everyone enjoyed the activity and left with smiles on their faces.
After a long silence of two years we would like to introduce our newly formed St. Brigid’s NS Senior Choir.
They would like to share their recording of a beautiful song, ‘A Little Peace’.
It is hard to believe they only started practising a short few weeks ago!
On June 15th, Room 27 5th class headed off on their school tour to Croke Park. They toured the ground of the well-known stadium, visited the dressing rooms, learned lots of historical facts relating to events held in the stadium and even spent time in the commentary stand!
After a quick bite to eat and a chance to kick a ball and hit a sliotar, they headed off to visit Dublinia and learn lots of new information about the Vikings and Medieval Dublin. The sun shone brightly and everyone enjoyed the day!
A wonderful day was had by the 5th class groups from Ms. G. Days and Ms Moore’s classes on the Church green last week for their Sports Day. They enjoyed a range of novelty races and everyone had lots of fun!
Vincent in 5th class recently took part in filming for the Irish wheelchair association around changing the perceptions and stereotypes of people with disabilities. The Daisy project (Disability Awareness in schools and youth clubs) will be rolled out in schools around Ireland. This will hopefully change attitudes around people with disabilities by demonstrating understanding, awareness and inclusivity.
Vincent has designed a fantastic inclusive playground:
I made a model of two areas that could be added to a playground. The first section consists of two ramps with a platform in the middle. I think children in wheelchairs will enjoy mounting the ramps.
In the second section, suitable for wheel chair users, I designed a swing set that I think the children would really enjoy swinging from side to side on.
The model was made from hard cardboard, straws, match sticks, masking tape and string. It was decorated with stickers.
I really enjoyed being involved in making this playground.
Well done Vincent!
The children in 5th class Room 27 have been busy making parachutes this week while working on their STEM Egg drop activity. They have been investigating and experiementing about the the effects of air resistence and gravity on their parachute.
First they dropped an egg on its own. Then they tried out their parachutes with their eggs attached using a variety of materials. The times were kept very carefully by the time keepers! They discovered that gravity pulls the object down and air resistance slows the fall. Parachutes are used to slow the fall of an object by increasing air resistance which reduces the effect of gravity!
