Fourth Class

Fáilte Romhat go rang a Ceathair 

We have gotten off to a cracking start here in fourth class. Everyone has really enjoyed returning to the classroom after our summer holidays. We have been very busy in the classroom and doing lots of fun sports. The children thoroughly enjoyed 4 weeks of GAA coaching.

We practiced lots of skills and played mini-games in the yard. Many of the children are members of Castlerahan GAA club and  more are hoping to join next season.

In the classroom we have been busy learning. Currently the children are enjoying taking part in Literacy stations with Ms.Mulvey and are enjoying regular visits to our new school library. We are loving reading our novel Charlie and the Chocolate factory in this warm setting.


As a reward for good work the children have also had the opportunity to avail of our new state of the art playground.  A special shout out to Eleni who won the Cavan Sports Partnership art competition. Her drawing was amazing.

Currently in Arts and Crafts we are making some spooky half zombie self portraits.  We are looking forward to our busy Christmas calendar at St Clare’s!!!

Term 2

We have had a very active term 2 thus far. We completed a Cycling Program where we mastered many essential cycling skills and learnt a lot about road safety. It was lots of fun too!!! We are also delighted to resume our swimming lessons every Monday. This is a great life skill to acquire and we are very enthusiastic to become expert swimmers. We are also doing lots of hard work in the class. Currently we  are really enjoying all the literacy activities organised by Ms. Mulvey.

The Famine

We recently completed excellent projects on the Great Irish Famine. We really enjoyed researching the topic on the tablets.

Our local playground in Ballyjamesduff is currently closed, much to the disappointment of all our students. So we wrote a letter to our local councillors demanding it reopen soon. We are looking forward to their response.

We had a very active term 3. We participated in the Spar 5-Aside soccer league, which we really enjoyed. We also loved  our Sports Day held in Fay park. To finish the year we went to Tayto Park for our tour. We all had a fun year!!
