4th Class Trip to the Hellfire Club and Massy’s Wood

Our two fourth classes had a fantastic day out today at the Hellfire Club and Massy’s Wood. Pupils learned about the geography, placenames and living things in the area on a walk up to the famous Hellfire Club building. Visiting the week before Hallowe’en didn’t phase our pupils as we talked about the history of the building and explored its dark interior. We even shared some of the scary stories from its past!

We were joined on the trip by a special visitor – Cava, Mr Looney’s friendly dog! Pupils took turns walking Cava and she was delighted with all the petting and a couple of treats!

Pupils finished up with some fun outdoor activities in Massy’s Wood on the lower slopes of the hill. Thanks to Ms O’Donovan and Ms Purcell for coming with Ms Higgins and Mr Looney and well done to all our pupils on their great behaviour.

Autumn leaves

Ms. Larkin’s Junior Infants had great fun last week when we went on an autumn walk. We looked at how the leaves are changing colour and tried to find as many different colours as we could. We brought them inside and then made leaf rubbings. This was lots of fun! 🍁🍂

Maths Week activities in 3rd class

Last week, our two 3rd classes took part in some fun activities to celebrate maths week. On Wednesday, we used our skills in addition & subtraction as well as our problem solving skills to solve some serious crimes! On Thursday, the children split up into 10 teams and used the iPads to participate in a maths quiz. Look at our pictures to see how much fun we had!
