Girls Basketball 16/17

  1. At the start of the season in November , we played our first match against Scoil Bhride. We played well and managed to win by one basket in the end. Then our next few matches were against Maynooth , Celbridge,Caragh and Clane . After winning all those matches we were top of the leauge!

In our semi-final we played against Scoil Mhuire, Ballymany . We won both legs and made it to the final on the 15th of February . We played against Kill for the 4th year in a row in Scoil Na Naomh Uilig, Newbridge . It was a tough game and both teams played very well but Kill managed to beat us in the end.We really enjoyed playing the final this year and we were pleased with making it to the final!

We enjoyed the season and we wish the best of luck to the 5th and 6th classes next year! Lets hope they make it to the final next year too!

Native Americans 6th class

In February 2017 Mr Kennedy’s 6th class did a project on the Native Americans.

We learned about how the Native Americans originally came from Asia. They got to America by a land bridge connecting the two continents. We also learned about the different tribes. There were over 600 different tribes across the continent. Every tribe had its own language. A vital part of their survival depended on the buffalo. They used parts of the buffalo for everything from tepees to food and clothes.

As part of art we made totem poles out of Pringles cans and kitchen rolls. We also used a variety of art supplies. We painted the totem poles and decorated them with crepe paper. We used paint and crepe paper to make animals and different designs on the totem poles. They turned out colourful, bright and realistic.

Overall we learned a lot about Native Americans , how they lived and how they survived in the wild.

Sow and grow

We went to the school garden to Sow and grow.

We were given a cup and we put some compost into the cup.

We planted cress seeds, baby carrot seeds and runner beans in the compost.

We are looking forward to seeing them grow.

We had a great time.
