We spent some time in the computer room today researching the flora and fauna of our local Lough Nahoo. We intend to visit the lake in the coming weeks to observe and investigate the lake’s plant and animal life. We hope you enjoy our video which outlines facts and some sounds about the creatures and plants to be found in the environs of Lough Nahoo.

Every Irish person creates close to double the plastic waste of our Portuguese counterparts. It is clear that we need to reduce and reuse on a greater scale.

Gigantic plastic islands have appeared in the world’s oceans where plastic items aggregate.

The arrival of the Enormous Pumpkin

Look at our happy faces!!! Last week we had a very special delivery to our school. It took four men to carry the enormous pumpkin to our front door. Emily Rae,Sophie and Mikey’s Mum and Dad organised this special delivery. We got a wonderful surprise when we saw how enormous the pumpkin was. We had great fun estimating and measuring its circumference. Emily Rae gave us a detailed account of the pumpkin’s history. When her family tried to weigh it the weighing scales broke with the high weight level. The Brady’s are going to share some pumpkin sees with us, so we can do some planting with them ,next Spring. Later , in class we wrote stories about the pumpkin. We put all our stories in a booklet, which you can read as you come by our classroom. Thank you to The Brady Family.



River Bonet

Recently Fifth and Sixth Class pupils enjoyed a workshop facilitated by StreamScape.  They got up close to the many mini-beasts that live in our local River Bonet. Working as environmental scientists for the day the children were busy classifying, sorting and identifying the many species that live in our local waterways.  Great fun was had by the children who are looking forward to our follow-up fieldtrip to the River Bonet in Spring.
