In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue :)
Parents, it’s that time of year again! Just a reminder about costumes for this year’s musical. Could all parents of 5th class in St Dominic’s and all parents of Ms. Hogan’s class in Colmcilles, please have their children’s costumes in by Friday 28th November, in a bag with your child’s name on it. If anyone is having difficulty making or finding a costume please see Ms. Farrell for assistance. Thanks in advance for all your support. We couldn’t do it without you all and it is very much appreciated! Ms Farrell
Rang 6 had a fantastic walk from the school to Bohernabreena Waterworks – and back again – on Friday. The weather held up for a great 12km walk. We learned a lot about the rivers, mountains and placenames in the area (Geography); the history and heritage of the waterworks themselves and the surrounding area (History); and the flora and fauna of Kiltipper Park, the Dodder and surrounds (Science) as well as bits and pieces of SPHE, English, Gaeilge, Maths and PE. A curricular walk if ever there was one – with a lot of tired legs afterwards! You can learn more about the Reservoir and the Dodder here and here.
Senior infants read the story Farmer Duck. We have been busy acting out the story and summarising what happened. In art this week, the children made lovely pictures of how happy Duck might be feeling at the end of the story! He has time to go in the pond as he doesn’t have to do all the chores himself now.
