Rang a Sé starting the year off with dance

We’ve only just started Sixth Class but are already getting to grips with our new routine. Marie says it’ll get easier so we’ll let you know if it does later on! There’s a lot to remember and a lot of hard work but we’re smiling a lot too so still lots of fun happening in […]

Farewell from sixth class

Thank you on behalf of sixth class to everyone who came to say goodbye to us yesterday and for the amazing and very emotional guard of honour from all the students and teachers in the school. It was a perfect send off and we loved it. We will miss you all, but will be back […]

Woolly times in Rang a Sé

Have a look at the knitting we did in sixth class. We’re really proud of it! Thanks to Abdul for sewing it all together for us.   We also had a Wassa Wassa drum workshop which was great fun! Here are some photos of our finished drawings of parts of our school building. We’re really […]

A thank you to our parents for Sports Day

We’ve had another wonderful Sports Day this week but it couldn’t take place without the fantastic help from our NETNS parents. Thank you so much to those of you who gave up an entire day (with a very early start!) to volunteer with us, we really, really appreciate it and are very grateful for your […]

Athletics on the Curragh with Larry for Rang a Sé

Huge thanks to Emily’s Dad Larry from Newbridge Athletics Club, who took us out to the Curragh for an athletic’s lesson.   We really enjoyed it and learned loads! Thanks a million Larry!   Have a look at our photos:  

Fun for Rang a Sé at Sports Day

We had a great day and loved every minute! We even managed to draw with the teachers in the annual Student-Teacher match. Have a look at the photos:  

Fun in Dún na nGall for Rang a Sé

We all survived and loved every second of the Gaeltacht! Have a look at some photos of us over the week:

Getting ready for the Gaeltacht, Rang a Sé

Next week we get to visit the Donegal Gaeltacht and are very much looking forward to this. We know it’s a long journey but we’ll have the time of our lives when we get there. One of the things that we will get to do during the week is perform for the other schools, in […]

Happy book week in Sixth Class

Lots of book related activities going on this week in NETNS to honour book week. Here’s  a photo of us dressing up as our favourite book characters (some of us look like normal sixth class students so you might have to stretch your imagination a little to guess who we are!)

Drawing with perspective in rang a sé

We made use of the lovely weather this week in sixth class, by taking our drawing lesson outdoors. We wanted to capture some of the school building in our drawings using perspective, so we chose a place to sit in the yard and focussed on one part of the building. We were only allowed to […]

Zeeko internet awareness in Rang a Sé

This week in sixth class we had Ursula from Zeeko visit us and teach us all about appropriate use of the Internet. We learned about the effect of blue light on our brains if we spend too much time on our screens especially just before we go to sleep. Did you know that your brain […]

In case you missed Rang a Sé on open night

Here are some photos of our room and our displays from Open night, just in case you missed it! They include our Irish Animal Projects as promised from last week and our amazing locker room which we worked so hard to decorate and tidy for the night that was in it. Have a great Easter […]

Poets using their senses in sixth class

This week in sixth we learned how to write a special type of poetry called sensory poetry. It’s a bit tricky at first but you just have to follow the rules. Each line of the poem has to vividly describe something that was either seen, felt, smelt, tasted or heard by the poet. We had […]

Creative dance in Rang a Sé

This week in sixth class we learned to tell a story with dance moves only. This meant that we couldn’t use mime, dialogue or anything else apart from a dance movement so each part of the story had to be told with a different sequence of movements. We got the hang of it straight away […]

St Patrick’s Day Clay Creations Rang a Sé

In SESE we have been learning about the Saints and Scholars of Ireland and decided to create our own Irish keepsakes to celebrate St Patrick’s day. We also had a brilliant time learning the dances: Ionsaí na hInse agus Ballaí na Luimnigh and loved visiting the Gaelscoil for our annual Céilí to celebrate Seachtain na […]
