Martha’s Birthday

Martha’s Birthday is at the beginning of May, just after the Bank Holiday. She brought a lovely mint cheesecake birthday cake in for all her friends. A lot of work had gone into making the delicious cake. Happy Birthday, Martha!

 

 

Art: Koi Fish

We spent some days drawing and then paining Koi fish in shimmering blue water. The end results were very effective.

 

 

 

 

School Tour

Our school tour this year brought us to Fota Wildlife park and the Titanic Experience in Cobh.

We really enjoyed Fota. It’s great going around in a group, as you all spot different animals and can point them out to others. We saw baby lions, a sloth, sea horses, emus, penguins, zebras, giraffes, peacocks, hippos, eagles, monkeys, cheetahs  etc. It is a great place and Fota have really developed the grounds to give the animals the most natural environment possible with loads of space, water and shade.

We wanted to see the Titanic exhibition as it ties in with our class reader we are doing at the moment called “Titanic Survivor” by Stephen Davis.

Art : Box Colour

We designed a sheet of paper with straight thick black lines, going in different directions. We then chose 2-3 different colours to colour in the boxes. They looked really well when finished.

  • She talked about good oral hygiene
  • How to brush your teeth, floss and use mouth wash
  • How long we should brush our teeth for
  • What smoking odes to our teeth
  • What acid does to our teeth

Cork City Sports

We were very proud of our team of boys at Cork City Sports, they all ran well in their heats with Calum coming first in his heat and got a gold plaque. Then they ran the relay, unfortunately, we had the inside lane, which gives a visual disadvantage before you start, It was very hard to stay with the strong leaders on the other teams but our brave group did not give up and came away with bronze plaques.

Thanks to all the parents who helped to drive their children to the Ahiohill GAA pitch for their weekly practises and then in to Cork for the City Sports. Thank you to Ahiohill Pitch, for letting us use their pitch for training. Most of all, thanks to Ann, for her dedication and her professional experience in coaching them.
