Today we visited Tullow Library for a Comic Drawing Workshop. We had a Zoom call with Tomas from Lithuania, in the sister library of Tullow. He taught us about how to plan and draw a Comic Strip.

While at the library, we also participated in some activities for Carlow Arts Festival. The children planted seeds, took photos of the local area and wrote their thoughts and feelings on some questions.

Our classroom will be where the School Plays will be shown to friends and family, so we are busy decorating the room and hallway. We made Christmas Decorations and an Advent Calendar for our classroom.

We are learning about Rocks in Geography this month and created a fact file on one of the rocks. We learned that there are three types of rocks, Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic.

The children are enjoying doing Art, swimming, creating stories, helping in the classroom, using the Chromebooks and Golden Time each week. They are also enjoying rehearsing for the play ‘Silent Night’ and singing the songs. They are looking forward to performing it for everyone in December. By Paulina and Patryk 6th Class

A visit to St. Columba’s Church

Friday 18th November 2022

Canon Brian has been visiting us every Friday in school. Today, he invited us to see his place of work. We had a look around the church and spoke about the beautiful stain-glass windows and the font.

There is a Remembrance Tree in the church and some of us decided to add some more names to the tree, of people who have passed that we are thinking of.
