Some Christmas Art

We had a wonderful art session today, making angels, Christmas tree decorations or cards and Nativity scenes.  We did a lovely job of all the Christmas artwork today.

Christmas Musicals

We really enjoyed today's Christmas musical produced by Ms. Fitzgerald's and Ms. Lane's Junior Infant classes.
You were just wonderful altogether.
Well done!
We were also treated to another superb musical from Ms. Connolly's class.
What great actors and musicians.
Well done to all!

Carol Service in our church

We had a beautiful Carol Service tonight in Renmore Church.
A huge "Well Done" to our singers, readers, recorder players, percussionists, and of course to our teachers and SNAs, our principal Mrs.Coleman, to Fr. Mulkerrins and Fr. Peter and to Ms. Cunningham and Ms. McGuire who organised all so superbly!
What a wonderful preparation for Christmas.

Electrical Circuits and Static Electricity

We learned about static electricity and used this static electricity to pick up bits of tissue and to make our hair stand on end.
We learned about electrical circuits and used this knowledge to light up bulbs, turn motors and get buzzers to sound.
Click on this photo to see more pictures of electrical circuit work.

We were able to see what happens to bulbs and motors if we add a second battery.
We have also talked about the dangers of electricity and how to keep ourselves safe around electricity.
We had fun explaining to Ms. Cunningham's class all we have learned about electricity.
