Fun on the Farm

First Class had a brilliant day at Leahy’s Farm learning about animals and life on the farm long ago, and having lots of fun.

Games Long Ago

First Class have been learning about games that children liked to play long ago. We decided to play a few games ourselves! Here we are playing conkers!

The Santa Maria

Second Class are learning about Christopher Columbus. Look at their amazing drawings of the Santa Maria!


Tír na nÓg

Second Class wrote and illustrated fantastic storyboards showing the story of Oisín in Tír na nÓg.

Local History

First Class went on a history walk with Mr D. to see the old Brooklodge school!

Toys from the Past

We have been discussing and looking at toys in the past and present. We compared them to toys that we own ourselves. Here are some reports about our favourite toys!


Children of Lir

We read all about the story of The Children of Lir. Here are some freeze frames that we made for drama. See if you can guess which parts of the story we have picked to freeze frame!

Games Long Ago

First Class have been learning about games from the past as part of history. We decided to play some old games such as Hopscotch, What Time is it Mr. Wolf, Blindman’s Buff, 1-2-3 Red Light and a few others. Some children had never heard of these games before and had great fun!

Games Long Ago

We were learning about games long ago in History. We really enjoyed marbles even though it was quite difficult. Hopscotch was also great fun! We also played a game called Queenie, which we really enjoyed. We especially liked the rhyme that went with the game:
Queenie, Queenie who’s got the ballio? I haven’t got it, it isn’t in my pocket! Queenie, Queenie who’s got the ballio?

Life Long Ago

We are learning about life when our grandparents were young. Life was much harder in the olden days!
