Congratulations!

Huge congratulations to our Second Class students who made their First Holy Communion on Saturday. Each and every one of you did a wonderful job and made us all so proud. We would also like to express our thanks to our altar servers, choir and Fr. Howley who celebrated our mass with us.

Outdoor Classroom Day, May 17th

Today, Crumlin National School celebrated Outdoor Classroom Day. Children participated in various activities outdoors in the glorious sunshine ………………………

Senior & First Class Rockets

Senior infants and First class had super fun today building rockets. The best fun was launching them and attacking the teachers!!

Khan Academy

5th & 6th have been enjoying the challenge of Khan Academy. It can be very challenging but they don’t shy away from the difficult problems!!

Purifying Water!

5th & 6th watched a video clip of Chris Hadfield on  the international space station. He showed how astronauts recycle 93% of the water they use on board the station. We then carried out an experiment on purifying water. Pupils collected dirt from outside and then looked at all the filtering options provided to purify the water. Some of the filters worked exceptionally well and the water looked good enough to drink!

AVIVA here we come!!!!

5th & 6th had a super day today at Corinthians rugby club rugby blitz! It was a fantastic day and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the competitive but friendly atmosphere! The great day was made even sweeter when we were drawn out of a hat to go to the Aviva Stadium and play there on the 16th of May. Only four teams get to go!  Many thanks to all at Connacht Rugby and especially to Peter O’Hara for all his training and support in our school throughout the year!

 

Easter Rising Powerpoints

We’ve been learning about the Easter Rising in history. 5th & 6th class boys enjoyed putting together PowerPoint presentations on the Easter Rising. They had some cool special effects and enjoyed presenting their work. The rest of us enjoyed learning from their presentations!

 

Science Week 2017 Visitor

Last November, Jane McLoughlin (Science Facilitator) visited our school for Science Week. She carried out various experiments and displayed them to the Junior Classes. We were all amazed at her scientific knowledge.

Magnets

Last January, Senior Infants and First Class were busy learning all about Magnetism. We carried out our investigations using various classroom items and categorised them into magnetic and non-magnetic. We learned that a magnet has polar ends (Norths & South) and that opposites attract.
