We had an amazing gift from our brilliant parent’s committee! To help us settle back into our fun school year they booked the hilarious “Joe the Magician” for all of our classes to enjoy. We were all spellbound by his amazing magic. Big thank you to the parents committee for such a enjoyable start of term treat.
Junior Infants, Senior Infants and Féileacáin had a great time at the ‘Shorts & Shades’ disco! Big thank you to the St Fursey’s N.S. Parents Association for organising a fun filled afternoon!
Maths Week Ireland took place between the 15th and the 23rd of October 2022. Throughout the school the children engaged in a wide variety of mathematical activities from math games on the Chromebooks, Math quizzes on Zoom, Card games, Art activities focusing on Shape and Space, Problem Solving tasks and Math Buddies. The children from 6th class also engaged in a Math Workshop with lecturers from the DKIT. This workshop focused on binary code and how is used to create pixelated images.
The children from 6th class have paired up with the children from Senior Infants. They are engaging in a programme called Math Buddies that promotes a system of peer learning among the children. Everyday the children from Senior Infants pair up with their 6th class buddy and engage in 10 minutes of Mental Math games and written activities.
The children from Senior Infants have been very busy this term learning all about Spring. They went on a Spring Nature Walk and explored all of the signs of spring that they could spot in the immediate environment of the school. They learned all about the parts of a flowers with a specific focus on Daffodils. They also were busy planting seeds and are seeing their pea plants begin to develop and sprout. Well done Senior Infants!
