There was great excitement on our return to school as we discovered a nest containing some baby swallows. The boys and girls have given the baby swallows names and we are enjoying watching them grow. Did you know the Irish for swallow is fáinleog? Swallows build their nests from mud. They migrate to warmer places such as Africa during the winter months. Their forked tails make them easy to identify.

The children in the senior room had great fun at The Stables in Gorey on their school trip. Many fears were faced! Well done everyone.
The Junior Room painted mini hurls to help them learn how to hold a hurl and where to it the ball. Thank you to Conor Daly (GPO) for teaching the children of All Saints’ GAA. They have really enjoyed learning GAA skills.
- On Monday the children enjoyed Rugby lessons.
- Tuesday we played outdoor fun games. The children had to beat the teacher in a skipping competition.
- Wednesday we joined P.E with Maths. The children completed a fun maths trail.
- On Thursday we had an timed obstacle course.

The children throughly enjoyed learning all about the Earth and the importance of caring for it. They also planted lots of fruit and vegetables, made beautiful flower crowns, and had lots of lovely outside time reading and having picnics 🌼
The children learned loads for earth day and had great fun making crowns from all things natural. We planted fruit and vegetables in our garden and some wildflowers for the busy bees.
