Wild Encounters

First and Second Class learned a lot during Wild Encounters last week. We got to see a parrot, a barn owl, a chinchilla, a snake, a tortoise, a skunk, a stick insect and a cockroach.


Fun in the Planetarium

We had great fun in the Big Bear Planetarium during Science Week!


Meeting John Sheehy from The Voice of Ireland!



Santa came to visit us in a fire engine before the Christmas holidays! He chatted to all the boys and girls and we got  to sit in the fire engine before he left!


Percussion Workshop

First and Second Classes had a faboulous day at our percussion workshop given by Claire and Alex. We learned about lots of new instruments that made really funny sounds and also learned how to make sounds using our bodies. We really enjoyed experimenting with rhythms and playing them on our home-made instruments. Our favourite part was listening to Claire and Alex playing Mario pieces on the marimba. What a great day!
