First Class have great fun playing in Girley Bog at Causey Farm.

The pupils from 5th class show their collage on “Feelings” as part of their work for Friends For Life. Thanks to Mrs. Foley Gargan who is their facilitator for this programme.
Today was the last day of our Junior Achievement Programme ” Our Universe” for 6th class with Thomas O’ Rourke. We learned about chromatography which is what forensic scientists use to solve a crime. We looked at finger prints and we described a crime scene and we have to be the detectives and solve the crime. We all made a telescope. We practised mirror writing. We also investigated renewable energy. We looked at healthy eating and the types of food that are best to eat. The best part of this course is our trip to Dublin Airport which will happen on the 8th of June. Thomas is taking all the pupils in 6th class to Dublin Airport. We will view the old airport building. We learned about the airport, runways and plane lanes for different destinations. It will be a really interesting trip and we are all really looking forward to it. Best of all the trip is all paid for including a meal by Dublin Airport Authority. Thank you so much to Thomas for a FANTASTIC COURSE. We will ALWAYS remember it.
Our class were working on 3 D construction . We made 3 D shapes using squares and magnetic shapes. We had to work in groups to make different 3 D shapes. We had lots of fun and we also learned a lot too.

We left for the Crystal Maze bus at nine o’ clock. When we got there we had a snack. Then we split into four groups. “The Boys in Blue”, “The Crystal Stars”, Cheetahs” and “The Party Poopers”. After that we ran to the flags and through the maze. We did some obstacle courses. We did riddles and trick questions. We earned crystals for everything we did. We had about 5 lunch breaks. On one of them we got to go to a sweet shop.We did a really BIG obstacle course. We played tug of war and then we had another break. Then we went to the river and walked through the water. We got changed and them we went back to the school and back home.

Our School Tour to the Crystal Maze by Tadhg Watters 2nd Class
On Friday we went on our school tour to the Crystal Maze. We had to get to school early or we would miss the bus. When we arrived we had a little snack. Then we were split into groups. We called our team the “Party Poopers”. Robert Ryan, Amy, Danny, Sandra, Conor, Jack Natasha and I were the Party Pooper team.I won the first crystal for telling a joke. First we solved some riddles. Then we played some GIANT JENGA. We were asked to run to the flags in the HUGE MAZE. Then we went into a big river and the water was freezing cold. After that we got changed and got on the bus to go home. Even though it rained we still and a great time!
