2019/2020

Climate Action

The pupils in our senior classes took part in the Roscommon ‘climate action’ protest on Friday 20th September, joining students from other local primary and secondary schools. Our pupils gathered on the junior site and listened to the rally, after which our 6th class pupils joined in the march to Áras an Chontae.

 

Harvest Time

It was harvest time for some of the vegetables planted in our school garden last spring. Ms. McCarrick and the children in Ms. Mannion’s 6th class made the most of the fine weather last Friday and got busy harvesting vegetables such as carrots and potatoes. At the end, they each got a goody bag of vegetables to bring home with them.

Primary Language Curriculum

A big well done to Ms Dolan and all of the children in 2nd class (2018/2019) who were filmed back in April as part of the NCCA’s development of online support materials for the new Primary Language Curriculum. (You can read all about the NCCA visit here.)

The new Primary Language Curriculum, which was introduced in 2016 to pupils in junior infants to 2nd class, is now being rolled out to all classes. The video of Ms. Dolan’s class demonstrating narrative writing and the writing process is now available as part of the online toolkit of support materials for teachers.

New Aistear Resources

The children in our infant classes have enjoyed getting to grips with the new toys, games and equipment the school recently purchased for use in Aistear. Aistear is the Early Childhood curriculum framework for all children from birth to six years. Click here to read more information about it.

Look what we made!

Some children on our junior site made a fantastic scarecrow to protect the veggies in our school garden.
