Hour of Code

Computer programming and coding skills are becoming increasingly important. They help to nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. The Hour of Code was held globally from 4th to 8th of December and Bodyke NS took part in it again this year by giving our students that chance to learn the basics.



Posting our Santa Letters

We were delighted to welcome Postman Padraig to the school to collect our very special Santa letters. We have been assured that they will be delivered without delay to the big man himself.

Bodyke NS is happy to share the recent Department of Education and SKills Inspectorate History Curriculum Evaluation Report, following their recent inspection in September 2017.

You can access the document through the link on the right of the homepage of the school website or by clicking here.

It will also be published shortly on the website of the Department of Education and Skills (www.education.ie).

Crazy Socks Day!

This week we are celebrating Anti-bullying week with the theme ‘All Different All Equal’!

The idea is to help children and young people celebrate what makes them, and others, unique and help them understand why it’s important that every child feels included in school and able to be themselves without fear of bullying.

To add some fun and excitement, everyone wore odd socks or decorated their own for our Crazy Socks Day. Well done everyone for making such a fantastic effort!! We were really impressed with everyone’s creativity!

We were also really impressed by Sarah who wrote a story about bullying…Well done Sarah!

Electricity Workshop

We were delighted to welcome Michael Browne, lecturer in Mary Immaculate College and PDST advisor, back to the school today with his fantastic workshop on electricity. The children were fully engaged and active in their learning as they completed a circuit to light a light bulb, to making their own electronic quiz!

Gingerbread cookies..yummy!

There was an air of festive fun today with the Junior Room baking delicious gingerbread cookies to share. The school was filled with smells of cinnamon and ginger…..it was enough to make our mouths water..yum!

We were delighted to welcome David Lyons, NPWS Wildlife Ranger, to the school today to give his fantastic interactive presentation on some of our native wildlife.

We got up close to some spectacular animals such as the red squirrel, hedgehog, bats, owl, pine marten, otter, hare and even a badger.

We can’t wait to learn more about these beautiful animals and their habitats in the coming weeks.

More Science Week fun!

We had more Science week fun making lava lamps, testing the best liquid to clean coins, and trying to make eggs float.

We also took our experiments outside for some Active Schools investigations.

Looking forward to extending our ScienceWeek fun with a visit from the ranger next week.


Science Carousel!

More science week fun was had with a science carousel of cool activities and experiments. There were dancing raisins, exploding volcanos, and much more..
