A Slimy Afternoon!

What a slimy afternoon we had making our own slime in the Junior Room for science week. We had fun experimenting with the ingredients for added fun!

Remembrance Ceremony

Thank you to Fr Donagh for a beautiful All Souls Remembrance Ceremony to remember those who have passed away. We placed leaves on our tree to represent those we would like to remember over the month of November. May they be forever in our hearts.

Our Bodyke Champions!

A huge thank you to the Bodyke Junior A team for taking the time to visit us today with their coveted cup!

The children were so excited and extremely proud to meet some of the players and their management, following their great championship win.

We took full advantage of the photo opportunity and wish them well for their game on Sunday. Lúbán Díge Abú!

More Halloween fun!

More Halloween fun was had in the Junior Room..

We designed and carved pumpkins, we made Halloween Lanterns, we went on the Halloween Hobble around Bodyke in our fantastic costumes…thank you to Malone’s shop for our treat along the way! We had a spooky lunch, watched Room on the Broom and finished the day with a Halloween Boogie 😉

Well done to everyone for making such a fantastic effort with your costumes…as for Ms Ryan…what was she thinking ?????? 😉

Happy Halloween everyone and enjoy your well deserved break!

We were delighted to invite Fergus Barrett from Leave No Trace Ireland to the school this week to run his Outdoor Ethics Education Programme.

Leave No Trace is designed to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation and is based on 7 principles:

  • Plan Ahead and Prepare.
  • Be Considerate of Others
  • Respect Farm Animals and Wildlife
  • Travel and Camp on Durable Ground

  • Dispose of Waste Properly
  • Minimise the Effects of Fire.

Halloween Howl!!

As part of our Active School Plan, the children all took part in a treasure hunt of Bodyke village, looking for Halloween inspired clues and carrying out the activity that best matched each clue. The children had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed their hunt.

At Lunch-time the children continued to practice their hopping and jumping for distance over hurdles. While in the Junior Room the children were engaged in a Halloween dance.

Great participation for all involved!!!

Happy Halloween!



Maths Week 2017

We had great fun in the Junior Room today for Maths Week. We made shapes on the Geoboards and on the ipads, added our totals for the beanbag toss, practiced our patterns on the beads, and made sequences with the camels. Here are some photos from the fun..

Our Robots

We were so inspired by our library visit last week to meet author and storyteller Dereck Mulveen, that we created and wrote about our own robots. There might be a best seller out of us yet!

Active Athletics!

We have been covering the Athletics Strand of the PE Curriculum. We really enjoyed using the hurdles as part of our PE lesson. We are concentrating on improving our running technique also. Remember “Head up, Pump you Arms, High Knees!!”

Science Fieldtrip!

In the Senior Room ,we were learning about different plant groups. We went on a visit to the nearby forest and collected samples from some plant groups such as mosses, ferns, flowering plants and trees. We used some reference books and websites to help to to identify the plants back in the classroom. We remembered to follow the safety rules when walking on the road and wore our high vis vests….Be Safe, Be Seen!
