Spring I Spy

1st Class have been learning lots about spring recently. We have discovered that a lot of flowers grow in this season and that many baby animals are born. Birds are also busy building nests for their young and swallows will soon return from Africa. This week, we have looked at different life cycles – the frog has been really interesting to learn about.

Here are some photos from our walk last week when we searched for signs of spring around the school and at the Clayton Hotel.

 

Active School Week

Active School Week has gotten off to a great start.

Even with a windy start to the week, the children from Junior Infants to Second class visited the Astro Turf in Sligo IT.  They took part in fun relays and running games.

While the senior children from third to sixth class enjoyed soccer training with Darragh Healy from FAI.

On Wednesday, we started the day with Shake up and Wake up, with Ms. Quigley leading us in the Macarena dance.

Gerry Ferguson , Tug-O-War National Coach came in and the seniors learned the best skills on how to compete in Tug-O-War.

The Juniors had great fun climbing and jumping on the Gymnastic frames.

Looking forward to more activities tomorrow.

Active School Week April 17th to 20th.

Next week is Active School Week. Get ready for lots of fun and games.

Soccer Blitz at the Showgrounds

Today some of our children got to display their super soccer skills. Our girls played 3 games in the morning. While our boys got to play 4 games in the afternoon. There were some great goals scored throughout the day. There were also some great saves by both Oliwia and Mikey in goals.

We had a great day out and no doubt Sligo Rovers have  a few stars in the making!

Traffic News for February 12th

Next week, starting on Monday the 12th of February, Sligo County Council will start resurfacing Ash Lane. Ash Lane will only have one-way traffic while the road works are in progress. The traffic on Clarion Road is expected  to increase for the next 4 weeks as a result. Therefore we can expect delays in getting to and from St Edward’s NS.

Keep road safety in mind during traffic changes

Lyrical Dancing Champion

Congratulations to Mirolla in second class on winning this wonderful trophy and medal for the u-8 lyrical dancing competition at the weekend. A fantastic achievement!

Well done Mirolla.

Grandparent’s Day in Junior and Senior Infants

As part of Catholic school’s week 2018  the children in  Junior and Senior Infants invited their Grandparents in to ask them some questions about when they were in school and to have a look around our classrooms. The children sang a song to welcome their Grandparents and presented them with a lovely hand print to remember them when they were only 5/6 years old.

Thank you to all the Grandparent’s who came in on such a  wet day!  We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!  We look forward to seeing you again next year!!

 

Sligo On Ice!

Some of the children in room 1 wrote about their trip to Sligo On Ice:

On Tuesday the 19th of December, the children from room 1, room 12 and room 11 went ice skating at Sligo On Ice in Stephen St. car park in town. – Kelsey & Miya

We have been planning to go to Sligo On Ice for the past three weeks. Each week we had to earn 15 dojo points. In order  to get dojo points you have to do your best in class,be a good listener, be ready to work and have a tidy table. When we counted them the  day before ice skating, we had enough dojo points.The day finally came and everybody had to have a jacket,  track suit bottoms, long socks, gloves and a spare  change of clothes- Donald & David 

 We left at 11AM and we walked up the hill. Teacher said there was a surprise. We kept walking past the skating rink and went to the 4 Lights for chips! After that, we walked to Sligo On Ice. We got some ice skates and put on some helmets. They gave us the safety instructions and then we got on the ice. Some people slipped and fell, and some people were holding onto the wall. Then we all got the hang of it and soon everyone was skating all around. Even some of the teachers! – Mikey & Rachel

When we got off the ice, we went over to the seats and took off our skates. We got back into our pairs and headed back to school.  We really enjoyed skating and would really recommend it to anybody. We would love to do it all over again!-Tiffany & Shayna

 

Santa Mile Dash

On Thursday 21st December, we went over to the Sligo IT running track to take part in our first Santa Mile Dash. Everyone from Junior Infants to 6th and including the staff got dressed up as Santa Claus or reindeers and even some elves.

Our aim was to try and walk or run a mile. It was great fun and we really got into the Christmas spirit with Christmas music in the background.

We estimated that we ran over 180 miles. That is the same distance as it is from Sligo to Cork!!

Well done everyone and a special well done to Tommy from Room 1 who ran the fastest mile on the day.

Christmas Week in Junior Infants.

We have had a very busy week getting ready for Christmas.

We have been learning about ‘The Nativity’.  We put baby Jesus into our manger in school as we won’t be here on Christmas Day.  We saw Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds,the Wise Men and of course the animals that were in the stable when Jesus was born. We also got to see 3rd class perform their Nativity play. It  was excellent. 

On Wednesday, our parents came into our school and we performed a poem and some Christmas songs. We dressed up and got our faces painted.  We liked having our parents at school.

On Thursday, all the school went over to Sligo IT track for our Santa Mile Dash. We wore Santa hats and some of us dressed up. We ran around the track listening to Christmas music. It was great fun. We estimated that between all of us we ran approximately 180 miles which is the same distance  if you were travelling from Sligo to Co. Cork!!!!!

We also had a very special visitor to our class.  Santa came to our class. We were so happy to see him because he is very busy at the moment. He brought everyone a special treat. Thank you Santa.

I think after all this we are ready for our Christmas holidays. Happy Christmas everyone.
