First Class



Science Experiments in 1st Class


Sports day is one of the most anticipated days of the school year and this year was no exception! We had a fantastic day where all the pupils participated in a variety of races, including space hopper races, bean bag races, wheelbarrow races, spoon and potato races etc. We also had races for all the mothers, fathers, grandparents and toddlers too! One of the highlights of this special day is of course the soccer match between sixth class and the teachers. The teachers got off to a flying start this year as they scored the first goal but the sixth class pupils weren’t long making a terrific comeback, making the final score 3-1 to sixth class. This was an extremely enjoyable event in the school and we would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all the parents and relatives who kept the enthusiasm going for the whole day as they cheered and supported everybody throughout the different sporting events. Below are some pictures of our fun sports day.

1st Class trip to Collins Barracks

First Class had a fantastic day at Collins Barracks Open Day. We got to see and experience what life is like in the army. We saw artillery, army uniforms, the museum, and heard the Army Band. We even got to sit in army vehicles and get our face painted in camouflage. We had a fantastic time!!

Feeding time for the birds

First Class made some very colourful bird feeders in Science recently. Take a look….


iPad fun!!

First Class love using the iPads for playing maths games. Take a look at some of us in action.

On Tuesday the 28th of April we had our Science Day in Scoil Inse Rátha. The function of this day was to develop a knowledge and understanding of scientific ideas. Classes 4th, 5th and 6th set up science displays and experiments in their own classrooms and they invited all the other classes in the school to observe and ask questions about the displays and the experiments. Pupils were also invited to take part in some of the experiments.  This was an extremely enjoyable day for all the pupils and teachers. Below are some pictures of our exciting Science Day!
