Both 4th classes attended a Blitz Day in Na Fianna this week with girls from other schools in the area. This was held in Na Fianna and was organised by our School's GPO Mark Mc Manus. It was a really fantastic day and we all had a great time. All teams played four or five games and we learned lots as well as meeting girls in other schools and making friends.
Thanks so much to Mark and Na Fianna for hosting this. Also to Niall Cooper and all the referees and teachers who helped out. We can't wait for next year. Congratulations to Scoil Mobhi and Corpus Christi who won the cup and the shield respectively:-)
Check out the video below to see how much fun we had:-).
On Friday 17th June our 3rd and 4th classes entertained us all by singing their wonderful 'Times Tables' songs! They were joined by musicians Peter, Claire and Stephen and all together they put on two great shows, firstly for our 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th classes and then for their parents. Have a listen to some of the songs below...!
See the video below for some pictures of what we've been doing for the last few weeks.

4 th Class (March/April) on PhotoPeach
We've been busy in 4th class for the last while. The slideshow shows some pictures of what we've been up to.
3rd and 4th class have spent some time discussing and writing their own versions of the Proclamation and including what they think is important for Ireland in the next 100 years. They worked really hard and put a lot of thought into their efforts. These ideas have been combined to create one proclamation from St. Brigid's which has been uploaded to 'Scoilnet' as part of their 1916 programme.
The themes covered include love for all people, education, homelessness, equality, care for the environment and peace. Click on the picture have a look at our proclamation for a new generation.
We've been working really hard in 4th class this month. We brought in and presented our projects on 1916 a few weeks ago. They were all very impressive and a huge effort was made with these at home. We're also reading a novel about the Rising. We also had a surprise visit from James Mc Carthy with the Sam Maguire which was really great. We're so lucky to have seen it twice this year. This month we're busy preparing for Christmas. We've been doing Advent tasks every day at school and at home. We decorated our classroom, made gift bags in art and made our own Christmas decorations out of recycled materials as part of our Green Schools work. This is a competition and the standard is very high. Our teacher will need some help to judge it. We have lots of shows to watch this week, a carol service to practise for and we are doing a Jingle Bell Run tomorrow dressed in our festive gear. There's great excitement everywhere. We'd like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.
See the slideshow for pictures of what's been happening.
It's been a busy few weeks in 4th class. We had a very interesting visit from an author who talked to us about writing and his own books. We had the Cheerios Childline Breakfast on October 7th which was great fun for a great cause. Then two members of our Defence forces visited the school on October 8th with a copy of the Proclamation and the Irish flag as part of the 1916 centenary celebrations. We've been learning lots about 1916 and we are starting our projects on it soon. Two girls in our class Taylor and Mya got to receive the flag from the army and they were very honoured to do this. Taylor had a relative who was a witness to the rising and Mya's birthday is on the 24th April which was the day the rising started. We've also been having sessions in Gaelic football and camogie from Mark who comes to our school every Friday from Na Fianna. Finally it was Maths Week last week. We did a maths trail and worked on some maths websites at school and at home. Well done to Mya and Laura who were star performers on Manghigh. Harvest day was yesterday and we helped to harvest a giant pumpkin. Happy holidays everyone. Check our our slideshow for some pictures of recent activities.
