Céilí Mór – The Siege of Ennis

Tá comórtas nua ar siúl ar an mblog! Bhí Rang Mr. McCarthy ag imirt cluiche nua an tseachtain seo – ‘Feicim le Mo Shiúlín’. Bhí siad ag foghlaim faoi ‘An Seomra Folctha’ agus roghnaigh siad ceithre rud atá sa seomra folctha. Níl a fhios againn cad a fheiceann siad! An bhfuil a fhios agatsa? Cuir síos do fhreagraí sna tuairimí. Caithfidh na freagraí a bheith as Gaeilge agus gheobhaidh tú pás obair bhaile má tá na freagraí ceart!

There is a new competition on the blog! Mr McCarthy’s class were playing a new game this week – ‘I Spy with My Little Eye’. They were learning about the theme ‘The Bathroom’ and they chose 4 objects from the bathroom. We don’t know what they saw! Do you know what they picked? Answer in the comments section below in Irish and whoever guesses the correct 4 words connected with the bathroom will earn a full homework pass!

Ireland is finally in the middle of the winter season!

This week, we are asking you to describe the weather in a sentence with only 5 words.

You are only allowed to use 5 words, no more no less! For example, if it was very cold, your answer could be “Even Frosty would be frozen!” The funnier and wittier it is, the better!

Take your time and write a short and funny weather forecast. Choose weather from last week or on the day you are posting your comment. Remember, the winner gets a night off written homework. Good luck everyone!

Take a look at the Christmas Corner in the top left corner of the blog! Make sure you try the Christmas games, email your letter to Santa and countdown to the big day with the Advent calendar!

Keep an eye out for some of the songs that classes will be singing in their Christmas plays this year as well! We can’t wait!

1st to 6th classes had an important assembly where they discussed the importance of the ABC (Anti-Bullying Code) and being a good friend to one another. Check out some of the photos and video of the children singing, We even did the Mannequin Challenge down below!




We’ve been learning all about different animal habitats in 4th class. Ocean, jungle, arctic, woodlands…you name it, we’ve got it covered! Each group got to research facts and information on their chosen topic. We then worked together to create these eye-catching posters. The best part was that we got to present our projects to the class and tell them all that we had learned. Take a look! IMG_4585IMG_4581IMG_4595IMG_4607IMG_4641IMG_4645IMG_4629IMG_4636IMG_4651

1st-6th class will be gathering in the hall for a special Anti-bullying Month assembly  on Thursday. We are a telling school. We try to make friends with everyone in school and at home.

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
Just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got troubles, well I’ve got ’em too

There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and we see it through
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
It’s me and you

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see
It’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

A big well done to our two 6th classes who competed in the Intel Mini Scientist Competition today. Parents, teachers and fellow students were all very impressed by your work and the judges had a very tough time picking a winner. The runner-up prize went to the fascinating (if slightly gruesome!) project about the lungs and smoking awareness by Anna, Ríona, Sarah H. and Lucy. Our winners were Jack K., Janek, Jack Mc. and Callum with their highly informative project about diabetes. The boys will now advance to the regional final and we wish them the very best of luck!


As we approach the end of our anti-bullying month, there is a prize for the person who can write the 5 points of the Anti-Bullying Code first (ABC). Good luck everyone!!

On Wednesday 9th November Miss Griffin’s 1st class had a very entertaining visitor! The artist Don Conroy came to show us how to draw birds such as owls and herons. This was all because Abigail won an art competition. Congratulations Abigail, and well done.
