Thank you to Susan and Eamonn who visited 3-6th classes today and taught us a lot about the Burren. They talked about its animals and its flora and fauna. We also created a timeline from the origin of the world to the present and learned when different plants animals and grasses first came.

Respect for the diversity of values, beliefs, traditions, language and ways of life in society.
The whole school voted on whether or not we should have a sports day! Everybody enjoyed casting their vote and 6th class students took charge of the polling booth. 3rd and 4th class took charge of counting the votes. The result was a YES! Most students wanted a sports day
103 Students voted out of a possible 110.
We had lots of fun making lava lamps. We looked at what happens when you mix water with either juice, milk or oil. We predicted what would happen and then recorded our results. We added food colouring to the oil and water mix and then a fizzy vitamin tablet. The results were very exciting!
We had a visit from the Irish Red Cross. All classes got a chance to look inside the two ambulances and learn about the job the Red Cross does. We have been asked to help fundraise for a new community bus which will help the older communities in Clare to get out and about every week. Please donate your 1c, 2c and 5c coins. Thank you in advance.
We had lots of fun learning about life in a castle. We learned about the different people and what their jobs were. We dressed up and visited classes to teach them what we had learned.
Well done 5th class.
