A Prayer for Grandparents

I pray for my grandparents Jack, Bernadette, Martin and Maura.
I thank God for having such great grandparents.
I say a special prayer for my granny Bernadette who passed away last year.
She was very special to me and I miss her.
May she rest in peace. Amen

Grandparents Prayer

A Prayer for My Grandad in Heaven.

To my grandad in Heaven, I really love you so,
I’m writing this prayer just to let you know
I know I never had the chance to meet you but I really wish I had
Because you are my grandparent, my lovely Grandad.

Grandparents Poem

I have wonderful grandparents,
Nanny and Grandad Keaney.
They love me and I love them.
They always remember my birthdays and I try to remember theirs.
I know they’re old but you can still have fun with them.

My Granny and Grandad

My Granny and Grandad, what a funny pair!
My Grandad falls asleep on his favourite chair,
My Granny makes a shout and my Grandad wakes up and says “who’s there?”
My Granny would laugh and say “you silly man, you were snoring too loudly” and my Grandad would say “I didn’t hear a thing”. Granny would say “you were the one snoring so how could you hear”.
That’s why my Granny and Grandad are such a funny pair.

To Granny Mary

I love you Granny Mary. I love the way you hug me and I love the way you kiss me. I love the way you take care of Granny Josie but most of all I love you.

From Josh


To Granddad Paul

You and my Granddad Bobby and Granddad Eugene are the best Granddad’s ever and this is for you. I love the way you take care of me. I like when you feed me and let me stay here sometimes and the way you give me money for ice cream.

From Josh


Grandparents Day

I used to stroll along the path with my Granddad and go to a shop near by. We would get a can of coke, chewing gum and a cup of tea but now them days are over. He died from an accident but I’m okay. I have my parents and nannies to love me and that’s all I have to say.

Why I like Grandparents

I like Grandparents because I think they are really cool. They tell you stories from long ago. You can have lots of fun playing board games with your grandparents. If I were to talk to my grandad again I would ask him how many degrees is it over there inNigeria.

I had to stay with my granny in Latvia because my mum went to get a job in Ireland. Sometimes I call her on SKYPE.

Art in Room 12


During art class, 6th class made sea creatures from clay. First we looked at pictures of sea creatures. We then chose our favourite creature and we drew a sketch of it. Valerie gave us an amount of clay to make our sculptures. We warmed the clay by rolling it on the desk. Next we shaped our chosen sea creature by pinching the clay. We used lollipop sticks to mould fins and tails into our sculptures. We used blunt pencils to create eyes. Finally they were left on the windowsill to harden.

The following week we painted them .When the paint dries we will cover the clay sculptures with varnish. This will protect the paint and prevent it from pealing off.

Making Shadows in Junior Infants!

Last week in Junior Infants we made shadows. We used small torches and made the room as dark as we could by turning off the lights and closing all the blinds. We also had to draw some of the shadows we made. It was great fun. Here are some photos.

January Maths Question

I have 10-cent, 5-cent and 1-cent coins in my

money box.

If I open the box and take out just three

coins, how much money could I have?

Remember they might be a mixture of 1c, 5c and 10c or they might be two 1c coins with one 5c coin. There are many different possibilities. Maybe if you draw the coins it might help you to figure out the answer

Send your answer to the office by Thursday 31st of January. Show how you solved this and remember to include your name!
