Wellbeing Wednesday

 

We started our morning with a whole school meditation at 9.10am, this is a lovely calm way to start our day during Wellbeing week.

The following classes enjoyed Laura’s yoga class today; Rooms 9, 10, 11, 25, 20, and 13. There was lots of mediation, yoga poses and movement to music. 

 The children brought in board games today to play in class. Some Junior and Senior classes also paired up to play board games.

Thankful Tuesday

We were thankful for the lovely sunshine today particularly after the awful rain yesterday. All classes did their daily outdoor movement break with a great chance to enjoy the spring sunshine!

Pupils in Room 26 enjoyed a walk along the Royal Canal after a chocolate meditation this morning. They saw 10 newly hatched ducklings which was really special!

Junior and Senior classes paired up for lots of fun activities around the school including reading and outdoor games. Some classes did an outdoor Maths trail today in various spaces around the school including the zen den, outdoor classroom and yards. 

We had Laura from Star Kids Yoga in the school today. She will teach all classes across the school during the week.  Children from rooms 1, 3, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 4 and 21 took part in a yoga class today in the hall. 

Mindful Monday

The pupils had a nice start to the term with Wellbeing Week kicking off with Mindful Monday today. Children took some time to participate in some mindful colouring. Some classes also got a chance to enjoy a yoga session in the PE Hall today - pictured above are the pupils in Ms Peoples' Junior Infants. Every class will get a chance to do some Yoga by the end of the week.

Pupils talked about all of the exciting activities that are planned for the week including scavenger hunts, walks, paired activities, board games and many more.

As the children have no homework this week, we would encourage them to spend time on activities that will benefit their Wellbeing such as being active outdoors, reading or spending time with family and friends.

Picture Books with First Class

Over the last couple of weeks the 6th class pupils in room 20, Ms O’Mahony ’s class have been working on picture books for Ms Waldron’s 1st class. We asked the children what their interests were and based the books on that. After that, we read the books to them and discussed what they thought about them. All of the 6th class pupils had great fun writing and reading the books to the 1st class pupils and everyone really enjoyed their time together.

Ms O’Reilly’s 6th class recently completed their projects on Greece. We learned all about this amazing and beautiful country including Ancient Greece, the Olympic games, Greek Gods and much more. We also enjoyed some delicious Greek food including tzatziki with pitta bread, and Greek yoghurt with fruit and granola.

International Women's Day 2024

Pupils from 3rd to 6th Class have spent the last few weeks researching and working together on projects for International Women's Day. Their work culminated in a showcase in the school hall on Wednesday and Thursday 6th and 7th of March where we were lucky enough to have Sinéad Ahern, Vikki Wall and even RTÉ news2day visit the pupils. You can see a short snippet of some of the pupils speaking on RTÉ by clicking here and the full broadcast is available on the RTÉ Player for the next two weeks. You can look at the pupils projects in the slideshow below. The pupils spent a lot of time and effort on their projects so well done everyone! A huge thank you to Mr Doherty for organising such a worthwhile and interesting few weeks of work for our senior pupils.
