Nativity by 3rd Class

Well done to all the boys and girls who worked very hard in preparing and putting on a fantastic performance of the Nativity this week. Enjoy your well earned break over the holidays.

Summer Camp 2017

36 children took part in our Pirate themed Summer Camp from August 21st to 25th right here in St. Edwards! We had loads of fun learning pirate jokes, making  masks, hats and treasure maps, animations on the iPads, not to mention a little orienteering and some treasure hunting! We took a trip to Sligo Library where Brenda taught us some “Pirate speak” before reading some stories, all of course on a pirate theme! On Friday, our parents came in to hear our camp song “That’s How I Became a pirate” and to have a look at some of the art and crafts we created. Come have a look in the hall this September to see them!  


Room on the Broom

Junior and Senior Infants and First Class recently went to see the musical Room on the Broom in the Hawkswell Theatre. It is based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. We were very excited about our bus trip and visiting The Hawkswell. 

In Senior Infants, we read the book and we made some stick puppets of the characters to make up our own little play based on the story. Thomas made up a new story called “No Room on the Dragon”! Room on the Broom is one of our favourite stories. 


December in Senior Infants

We have had a very busy December in Senior Infants! We completed our athletics sessions with Dermott and started yoga with Cathríona. We really love using our volcano breaths when we want to relax! We enjoyed our Christmas Aistear theme and created some lovely little plays with Christmas character puppets in our small world area. Our role play corner was transformed into Santa’s Workshop. We took phone orders, designed some toys on paper and them made them and wrapped them for sending out! We made and painted some Christmas tree decorations to hang up at home and some snowmen faces with recycled shredded paper. 

We had a special visitor in a red suit to our classroom and he gave us some yummy treats. He was very funny and he thought that Patrick G. was related to Honey G! He said that Mick, our elf, had been telling him some very good stories about our class. We were very excited when our families came to hear us sing on a stage in the hall. We sang some Christmas songs and said a Christmas poem. They clapped a lot and really liked our singing! On the last day of school, we got to wear our Christmas jumpers and hats and went to assembly in the hall. Lauren and Patrick O. got a selection box from Mrs. McGowan because they have had really good attendance this term. 

Happy Christmas from Senior Infants!





Seachtain na Gaeilge i Rang a trí agus a ceathair

Bhí ceol agus craic ag rang a trí agus rang a ceathair i rith seachtain na gaeilge. Tháinig siad le chéile agus chan rang a ceathair amhrán – ‘Peigín Leitir Mór’ agus chan rang a trí ‘Beidh Aonach Amárach’. Ansin rinne rang a trí dráma greanmhar – ‘An Gruaigaire agus an Buachaill Dána’.

Christmas Nativity Play by 3rd Class December 2015

Third class performed the annual nativity play shortly before the holidays. We sang some of the well known Christmas carols like Silent Night and Away in a Manger. We also sang Do You Hear What I Hear? and a lovely carol translated from the Polish language called Baby Jesus. Here are some pictures and a short video clip. The video was filmed from a distance by a 6th class child on one of our school ipads.


Getting Ready To Perform!

We are SO excited in Senior Infants. We have been making and painting props, practicing our lines, finding costumes, learning how to play the air guitar….. and all for the St. Edward’s N.S. Concert 2015! Tickets are still available from the office until lunchtime on Thursday. See you all in the Knocknarea Arena at 7:30pm on Thursday night!

World Book Day – Junior infants

It was World Book Day last week. Junior Infants went to the school library and browsed through books. We acted out the story of our book of the week, ‘Farmer Duck’, in Drama using puppets.
