Well done to our two pupils who played in the U12 John Murphy Shield last weekend against Castleisland.
ESB poster competition
In the 4th- 6th class classroom, we have been busy preparing our posters for the ESB Stay, Stay Clear poster competition. The children have put in a great effort.
We have also been focusing on the persuasive writing genre in English and the children in 4th to 6th class have worked together collaboratively to create persuasive texts based on the argument " should primary school children get homework". They have been learning how to introduce, argue and conclude their debate. The children have really enjoyed this activity which has encouraged critical thinking , while improving public speaking skills and self confidence. As the children have just completed all the preparation , they are ready to begin debating on the topic of homework in primary schools.
