Irish Heritage In Schools – a visit from Sarah Myers

We were delighted to welcome Irish Heritage in Schools expert Sarah Myers to talk to the children about Mythology. She told magical tales and the children explored her wonderfully theatrical masks! The children then got to decorate their own masks. They were all so engaged!

Thank you Sarah!
Well done everyone!

The Roman Invasion! 3rd/4th class

Such excitement here today as Ms. ní Shúilleabháin’s class brought Ancient Roman civilisation back to life!

I was treated to a feast for the eyes when I entered the classroom, such was the creativity and work that went into creating costumes. I was further impressed by their projects and how well the presented them to me! They will enjoy a feast of grapes, bread and cheese later. Well done to their extremely enthusiastic teacher also!!

European countries – research by 5th and 6th class

Yesterday, we met Stephen the stick insect and many children got to hold him! Stephen left some eggs with us and we look forward to breeding our own stick insects. What a fun way to examine life processes in such an interactive way!

Here is a picture of Stephen on Ms. Russell’s arm!
