Our school garden and environment in May

May 26th, 2017 by Ms. Considine

May is a beautiful time of the year and our garden is looking great. A big thank you to Jason for his wonderful painting job and well done to Ms Ward for choosing the lovely bright colour. The potatoes, peas and runner beans are thriving. Mr Molloy’s class planted carrotts and we also have some herbs growing. The flowers brighten up the school environment and again thank you to Jason for his careful watering of them. STOP, LOOK and ADMIRE.

St. Patrick Acrostic Poems

March 24th, 2017 by Ms Byrne

We created some acrostic poems about St. Patrick. Please read and enjoy the top 4 from our class:

St. Patrick by Rayhana Ameur

Shamrocks everywhere,

Today is the day.

Put your Irish dancing shoes on,

A lot of fun we’ll have.

Things to wear – green, orange & white.

Ribbons on hair.

Ireland flags in the air!

Céilí  – we have to learn,

Kids having great times!

St Patrick – by Jessy Huynh

Saint Patrick is famous,

The saint who isn’t scared of snakes.

Patrick got taken as a slave,

And escaped.

Then scared the snakes of Ireland.

Rescued Ireland from snakes.

Ireland is safe now!

Celebrate and clap,

Kind and happy lad- Patrick.

 

St. Patrick by Coleen Imperial

St. Patrick our hero,

The hero we care for.

People all in green,

All the sheep he cared for.

The snakes are all gone.

Ready for celebration.

It’s all set in Ireland,

Come on it’s on the 17th of March,

Keep this in your mind we’re about to celebrate.

 

St. Patrick – Katelyn McKiernan

Saint Patrick’s Day is on its way,

Till Saturday that is the day.

Pirates were on his way for him,

And he had to stay away.

Today he wanted to get away,

Really wanting God to help him this day.

Ireland was a country he might have liked,

Colourful and green he liked his way,

Kindness and goodness he spreads all day.

Trip to Glanmore

February 7th, 2017 by Ms Byrne

Today, our class (4th) went on a school trip to Glanmore foods to see where and how our tasty school lunches are produced. Alan Silver from Dublin Bus brought us over to the factory in Blanchardstown at 10am. We were given a guided tour of the factory and we got to see every step of the process used to make our lunches! We even got a chance to try making our own creations with the bread dough. When the tour ended, we were given a snack and Alan brought us back to school. We were even given a goody bags of treats each to take home!

Grow Your Own!

April 20th, 2016 by Mr Byrne

Lately we have been growing and planting water cress, spinach, peas, lettuce, chives, rosemary and scallions in our class. We grew them from seed using pots and compost. We also recently planted (with Ms Considine’s assistance) early potato seeds which we hope to harvest and eat in June.

We learned that growing your own vegetables and herbs requires sunshine, good soil, space, warmth, water (rain) and plenty of time and effort!

Hopefully in a few week we will plant our class herbs and vegetables out in the school garden.

Mr. Byrne – 6th Class
