Lockdown art from 3rd and 4th class. The children were to create a self-portrait using only household items!
1st & 2nd class have been reading the story ‘The children of Lir’. We have read, acted out and even wrote the story in our own words.
1st & 2nd class focused on the theme of dance in PE and learned lots of new moves.
We even performed uptown funk as part of our Christmas show.
1st & 2nd class have been learning about the different types of houses and homes such as detached, apartment, bungalow and semi-detached. We drew pictures of our homes, wrote about our homes and even built a place we would like to live in.
Some of the boys in 1st & 2nd class were very excited to see the new arrival of our fish tank, new fish and the very important Ninja the school turtle.
County Mayor Declan Hurley invited our whole school to attend the turning on of the Christmas lights in the Cork County Hall on Wednesday 6th December. We had the opportunity to sing Christmas carols on this special day. Thank you to Declan for this honour as a day of enjoyment was had by all.
Heather Cooley in 6th class was weighed down with prizes after attending the Irish Pony Society Cork area and national awards recently. We are very proud of her achievements and wish her all the best in the future!!
We are very happy to welcome Niamh Whelton, our new Special Needs Assistant to Ballinacarriga NS. Niamh has part time hours in the school so will usually in here in the mornings.
Stella and Niamh will make a fantastic new Special Needs team.
Former pupils Margaret Collins & Farrah Healy won a competition to have their art pieces displayed on the side of the brand new West Cork Library Bus!! They entered this competition last May when in 6th class.
Farrah wrote a positive reading adage of her own making – “If you read cover to cover, you speak head to head.”
Margaret drew a picture of with an inspirational Irish sentence she made up herself – “Tá an bus leabharlainne ag dul ó cheann go ceann.”
Well done to both girls!
