Toasting the Leap Year with French Toast!

Today we made French Toast in our Friends Cooking Group!

We whisked 5 eggs, with  a cup of milk and cinnamon!


We soaked the bread in the mixture.


Then we fried it on the pan.


It was delicious with maple syrup/honey and blueberries!

Look out for more healthy snack ideas to share with friends!

Moon & Sixpence Puppet Theatre visited our school and entertained us all with a lively show. The Big Bad Wolf tried to turn us into Litter Bugs but we taught him the Pick Up Litter Song and saved the day! We are not afraid of the Big Bad Wolf!

We had a great time!

1916 Presentations

In Mr O’Neill’s 4th class we have studied the events of Easter Week 1916. We were divided into groups and each of us had to do research on our topic. When we had all practised our parts Mr O’Neill invited some of the 3rd and 4th classes to join us and listen to our presentations. We were all very nervous! Once we got started we were great! The presentations included, The Rich and The Poor in 1916, The British Army, The Rebel Leaders who signed the Proclamation and Roger Casement’s story. A group also talked about the some of the buildings that became famous as a result of the Rising for example: G.P.O.,Liberty Hall and Boland’s Mill. Click here for website

Celebrating Pancake Tuesday

In Room 1, the Junior Infants followed a simple pancake recipe and saw how materials can change when mixed and heated! It was very scientific …. with very tasty results!

This is the recipe:

200 g Flour

4  Eggs

600 ml Milk

Lemon Juice and Icing Sugar.

We took turns weighing, pouring and mixing!

We took turns frying the pancakes! Everyone had a pancake!


We took some photos!

IMG_6544     We weighed the flour

IMG_6545  We were very careful when using the mixer!

Their amazing invention using electronic lego was chosen at the end of the day from lots of other amazing designs by children from our school and lots of other schools. The girls were shocked and amazed to receive such a great prize. Well done girls!!

Thank you to Intellectual Ventures who sponsored the Lego sessions and provided the great prizes. Thank you to the Lego engineers who helped us on the day. Their project was an electronic arm using Lego. Check our website for more photographs.
