Cycle Right

Our 6th Classes were delighted to partake in a 4 week bicycle safety course called 'Cycle Right' provided by Roscommon Sports Partnership. The children learned how to check their bicycles and equipment to ensure that it is in good working order and safe for use. They also learned the rules of the road for cyclists including turn signals and road positioning. They practiced cycling on the school yard which helped them to consolidate all that they had learned and gain in confidence before their final session on nearby public roads. It was an invaluable course and the children really enjoyed themselves. A special thank you to our 3 instructors who were absolutely fantastic. We were very lucky to have you!

6th Class Heritage in Ireland Talk

Our 6th classes enjoyed a fantastic 'Heritage in Ireland' talk with Alison Mac Cormaic. They learned about the features of old and new architecture in the classroom and then went for a walk around town, observing the various architectural elements of the buildings. They enjoyed looking for features of the buildings in town that would suggest their age, and identified which parts of the town were older based on these features. The children had a great time taking note and observing elements of the buildings in town that they may not have noticed before. Upon returning to the classroom, the children experimented with Lego. They created structures with cornerstones and tested them for stability and strength. A huge thank you to Alison for visiting our school!
