Time travel in Rang a Sé

In third class Trish had the brilliant idea to make a time capsule! Thank you Trish! Back in June 2015 we placed items important to us at that time in a box and Trish sealed it up for us with an instruction “not to open until 8th June 2018”.  Finally the day came for us […]

It’s amazing what you can do with porridge…. rang a Sé recycles

We used the pots of porridge that Marie gave us in loads of different ways. Some of us made famous structures such as the leaning tower of Pisa or the Golden Gate Bridge, whilst some of us made amazing inventions such as robot trash eaters, multi purpose sprinklers, fly catchers and many more. We’re really […]

Bodhráns in sixth thanks to Emma and Elaine

This week Emma arranged for us to have the use of bodhráns in sixth class, which is an amazing resource for us to have and we’re very grateful to her. Elaine very kindly agreed to give us a lesson in how to play them, as she is a wonderful bodhrán player herself. We had a […]

Recycling porridge pots in sixth

As we had a lot of porridge pots in our classroom, we decided that we would use them to design a new invention for the future or to illustrate a famous landmark of the world. Marie is really looking forward to seeing what we came up with but she’ll have to wait a week as […]

Hazel reminded us that she […]

WW1 and Picasso in Ruth’s 5th class

We have been working so hard on WW1 individual and group activities over the past few weeks. It is such an interesting time in history that we thoroughly enjoyed learning about it and integrating it through many subjects such as Literacy, Art, Drama and even Maths. In art we have been learning all about the […]

What a wonderful thoughtful thing to do!

This week, Kara in Sinéad’s class took a trip to the hairdressers….but this was no ordinary trip! Kara got her long locks cut and she donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust. www.littleprincesses.org.uk The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults up to the age of […]

Picasso and Knitting in Rang a Sé

We really enjoyed learning about Picasso and his different art periods. We mixed two of these up (cubism and his blue period) to create our own portraits in his style. We love how they turned out, have a look. We’ve also begun knitting. It’s very tricky and looks a lot easier than it actually is […]

Julie shared with us a fun and healthy way to cook chicken, vegetables and potatoes in her “home made Spice Bag” recipe. She even made up enough of her creation […]

Phone connection is broken at NETNS

Just an FYI….our phone connection seems to be broken and we have reported it. The line stills works, but when you ring it goes straight through to the mailbox. Please be assured that the messages are checked at regular intervals; in the interim we would recommend emails as the best mode of communication with the […]
