Maths Trail

Last Thursday, 3rd Class made the most of the sunshine and brought their learning outside. They participated in a Maths Trail around the school. The children worked in pairs to work out various questions about the maths in our environment. The children estimated, answered and checked, their answers together and discussed their findings in class afterwards. We estimated how many windows were at the front of the school, how many doors and checked our answers afterwards.

We also used the car park to look at the various cars, number plates and sorted the cars into groupings. We really enjoyed using the outdoors for maths and had great discussions when discussing our answers. We used problem solving skills, paired work, and team work during this exercise. We had a lot of fun!

Maths stations

Throughout the year, third and fourth class have been busy doing maths stations. Here are a few pictures of us busy at work.

Write A Book Project

Well done to 1st – 6th Class students who participated in this year’s ‘Write A Book Project’ in association with The Galway Education Centre. The books will be swapped with another school in Galway this week. Books will be returned to pupils once again in a few weeks time.

Christmas Play 2017

Last Friday we were treated to a wonderful performance from our Junior & Senior Infants acting out ‘The Nativity’ and 1st & 2nd Class performing ‘The Christmas Carol’. Great singing and acting from everybody involved. Well done to all of our students!

Liam McCarthy visits Crumlin!!!

There was great excitement in our school when Galway players Brian and Paul Flaherty brought the Liam McCarthy along with the Bob O’Keefe, Irish Press and National League Cups to our school. It was a great visit and huge thanks to all involved for organising the special occasion. The players were happy to answer all the children’s questions and sign lots of hurls, jerseys and sliotars! Let’s hope we’ll see Liam again many more times in our school!

Maths Day Parade!

Once again this year we had a very enjoyable Maths Fashion Parade! Well done to all who made a huge effort and produced amazing outfits for the day!

Visitor from Brigid’s Garden

On Thursday the 5th of October, Will Softly (in association with SEAI) visited us from Brigid’s Garden and held workshops with Senior Infants, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Will informed the students of the various renewable and non-renewable sources of energy and had lots of fun with the pupils through games, puppets and dress-up. He gave us some great energy saving tips.

Will also demonstrated how chemical energy can be converted into electrical energy using apples!

Thanks Will for a great day!

Christmas Play

Welcome back after the Christmas break.  We hope you had a happy Christmas.  Before the school finished up, Junior Infants to Second Class held a very successful concert ‘The Xmas Factor’.  All the students worked extremely hard in the lead up to the play and it showed on the day.  All of the classes performed their songs/poems brilliantly.  The judges showed off their acting skills with great gusto.  It proved to be a very successful and funny play, which children, teachers and parents enjoyed.  We would also like to say a special thank you to the Parent’s Association for organizing the raffle, raffle prizes and doing the coffee and tea.

Here are a few pictures of our show.  Enjoy:-)
