Slide1We have four 1st Classes

Mrs. Mc Grath      Ms. Killilea      Ms. Moran


We have been busy over the last few weeks as our time in 1st class comes to an end. We had science day, sports day and our school tour to Mellowes Adventure Centre.

Music workshop- April

We had a music workshop in April which we really enjoyed. We played lots of instruments including djembe drums, shakers, rhythm sticks and hand held drums. Here are some photos:

Blakerville Elf!!
First Class production of ‘Blakerville Elf’ took place recently. It was a fantastic show as commented on by all the brilliant parents that came to watch and join in on the singing. The first class children did a tremendous job. They performed Christmas songs, dances and musical instruments. We had some wonderful actors and actresses take centre stage as Santa and Mrs. Claus, Papa Elf, Santa’s reindeer, the mischevious children who snuck into Santa’s sack and many more. Thank you to all involved in helping children remember lines, songs and collecting outfits. Well done 1st Class!


Book Day

We recently celebrated ‘World Book Day’ in our school. The children were invited to come in dressed as their favourite book character. We had some very creative costumes! The children attended a book assembly in our hall and we had some of our 1st class students participate in a book quiz! They won some really cool prizes! The students enjoyed listening to stories, watching a puppet show and were even frightened by a Big Bad Wolf!!!


Making Butter
Ms. Killilea & Ms. Moran’s first class did an amazing science activity at school recently. They made butter from scratch. They half filled jars with cream and had a workout shaking the jars until the cream turned to butter. They put their fresh butter to use by spreading it on crackers and giving their produce a taste. Yummy! Check out Ms. Moran’s class…





























































Halloween & Christmas Quiz!!
The first class year group gathered together at Halloween & Christmas for a year group quiz! There was huge excitement as the year was split into groups to compete against each other. The questions were a mix of common knowledge and facts learnt throughout the year. Great teamwork was shown by all! The children and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can’t wait for the February mid-term quiz!


Halloween Disco!!

We had an absolute ball at our Halloween disco. We loved dressing up. Unfortunately we were having so much fun our class camera died and these are the only three photos we have. As you can imagine everyone looked Spooktacular!

















We visited The Dublin Ballet Academy with Stephen in September. We got to watch the performers of The Nutcracker. They answered all our questions. We learnt some new dance moves and our favourite part, we even got to try on the costumes.
