mosaics. We loved Valentine’s Day!

In English we are learning sight words and we are able to recognise them in books. We know all of

We have had lots of fun in February and we are looking forward to plenty more in March.

We had a busy time during February.

We have really enjoyed working with Mr McLoughlin this month.

In SESE, we have been dealing with the topic of the sea/the ocean. We discussed the importance of conservation and how pollution can impact on the different ecosystems and habitats.

In February, we also engaged with the stories of St Brigid and St Valentine.

Ms FitzGerald set up a nice pancake station in the class for Shrove Tuesday and we got to put together our own pancakes. They were delicious. Thank you Ms FitzGerald!!!!

We were also lucky to have a visit from some of the team from Nenagh Fire Station which was something we found very interesting and informative.

Ms Shanahan’s 5th class

We had a lovely month in our class. We were busy with our JEP project. Ciaran Scully the owner of Supermacs in Nenagh gave our class a talk about entrepreneurship. He gave us some good tips and hopefully has inspired some future entrepreneurs!

We were busy taking orders for our ‘pencil points’. We had over one hundred orders. Many have been made and delivered and the feedback has been very positive. We are making plans on how to spend the profits!

The whole class became members of Nenagh library and enjoyed choosing from a wide range of books.

Feel good Friday took place last week and boys from our class helped organise this by creating the playlist and setting up speakers in the school yard. The whole school seemed to enjoy this initiative.

Mrs McCabe’s 2nd – 6th class

We made soup with spinach, onions, carrots, parsnips, celery and tomato paste. It was delicious. We like our soup as it is very healthy and fills you up. We also make smoothies twice a week for breakfast. We put in frozen fruit, juice and milk. It tastes delicious. We love February as it is Springtime. We are getting excellent at our typing, and we are enjoying our novel, War Game.
