Na boilb agus an cabáiste

Chuir muid ár gcabáiste agus fataí san Earrach. Féach



















Anois, tá an cabaiste réidh le n-ithe.

Ach féach, tháinig na boilb ar cuairt agus taitníonn an cabáiste go mór leo.

Tá an-suim ag na daltaí sna boilb agus tá súil acu go dtiocfaidh feileacáin as na boilb go luath.

End of year History Projects


We used the Stop Motion App to make the following history stories:

All this week and last week we all were doing history projects on Stop Motion. I did it on Dinosaurs.

I did my project with Danny and it was about a long-neck and a t-rex.

The project tells the story of how the t-rex was walking too close to the long-neck and how the long-neck turned his neck and as he was looking at the t-rex, he swings his tail and hits the t-rex into the water. He can’t swim so he drowns in the water.

Our film is only 11 second long but it took me and Danny about a week to make.

I am proud of it.

Yesterday Declan the scientist came to our school. He showed us some cool things: he rolled a can on the floor and it came back all the way back to him.

After we tried to guess what happened and nobody got it right.

Then he told us how he said there was a weight in the middle of the can and there was two elastic bands taped to the inside. The science behind it is when you rolled it the weight wants to stay in place and that winds the elastic bands up and when it stops the elastic bands lets out all the energy and makes it roll back words.

Then he came into our room and made a slingshot out of lollipop sticks. All of our class had a competition with 7 people v 7. The yellows went first then red and the yellows won. I was on the yellow team and the second round the reds won.

I enjoyed the day I hope Declan comes back again another day.

By Patrick

Yesterday we had a visitor come to our school.

His name was Declan. He is a scientist.

He comes to our school once every year to do some science and engineering with us.

The first experiment he did was the can that would that would always roll back to you.



The second one was the mirror that makes you look like you’re upside down.

My favourite experiment was the glasses that make you look purple.

After the show he came down to our classroom and made catapults with us.



That is my favourite part of him coming every year by far. I hope that he will come next year. He said before he left that he is hoping to make a phone that can turn into anything.

The end by Hannah

Yesterday we did science with Declan.

First he got a tin with a weight and elastic bands in it and anytime he rolled it it came back to him.

Then he got a can of diet coke and a container of water and he asked us ‘Will it float?’ and most people said ‘No’. Then we put it in and it floated! Then he got normal coke and asked if it would float and most people said yes and it floated! And then at last he had Pepsi and asked if it would float and most said yes and guess what, it didn’t! He asked why and lots of people had lots of ideas and then Ava said because there’s more sugar in Pepsi than Coke and it was right.

By John

Declan from Science Ireland

The last day we had a man called Declan come to our school. Declan is a scientist. He did lots of things with us.

He usually tricked us to believing one thing when it actual something else is happening. He showed us that there is more sugar in a can of Coke than Pepsi and Coke floats and Pepsi doesn’t.

He also rolled a tin cylinder and it came back to him like a boomerang, but more slowly. The trick was he had a weight in the middle with elastic bands wrapped around it. The bands wind up when you roll the can and the can rolls bac kas the elastic bands unwind.

After that we had a game of homemade catapults. The way you make them is you need eight lollipop sticks and elastic bands. The rules are you get a Velcro ball and fling it with your catapult and try hit the target. It was really fun and can’t wait to do it next year.

By Jack




Yesterday Declan the scientist came in to do science with us.

When he came all of the senior room went down to the junior room so we could do an expiriment together.

We did really fun things all together.

Then after our lunch break he came in to the senior room and we did catapults. They were really fun and I enjoyed them a lot.

The catapults were like a cross between the movie and game Angry Birds.

My favourite one was the robot one because he was really cool and it is a really smart robot. So I liked that a lot.

Declan was really good at science and was fun too.

By Róisín

Yesterday Declan the science guy came to our school he did some science  with us.

The first thing he did was he rolled a can on the ground and a it came back to him. He ask  us how did it come back? Some people kind of got it. After a while he told us the answer. It was how there was a weight in side of it with some rubber band tied around it.

Then he asked which would sink: a Diet Coke can, a regular can of Coke and  a PepsI. And he put the Diet Coke in to the water and it  didn’t sink. And then he put in  the Coke and that didn’t sink . Then he put in the Pepsi and that did sink because it has more sugar.

Then he stayed with the little ones for a while.

Then he came to us and played a fun game with us  you have a ball and shoot it on to  a little carped thing and it was fun.

By Kirsty

Yesterday Declan Holmes, the science guy, came to our school.He showed us lots of stuff to do with science.

First he rolled this can and asked us what was happening.Then he showed us Coke. Diet Coke and Pepsi cans he asked us which would float and which would sink. Only the Pepsi can sank because the amount of sugar in it.

Half an hour later he came to our room and we played a extremely fun game with catapults.They were not real ones though, but we could make them ourselves at home if we wanted.

Afterward, we asked thousands of questions! He was really funny and I enjoyed the day a lot.

Review of “Once” by Morris Gleitzman

The story of Once, by Morris Gleitzman, tells the tale of a Jewish boy living in Poland around the time of The Holocaust 1939-1945.

(The Holocaust was a time in history where the leader of Germany was a man called Adolf Hitler. Hitler and his followers the Nazis hated the Jews and set out to kill them all.)

Felix is an imaginative boy and he is always curious about what’s going on. His parents were booksellers and they were all happy.

Unfortunately, at that time The Holocaust began.

Felix’s parents left him at a Catholic orphanage when they realised what was going on and the danger involved.

For nearly 3 years Felix stayed at the orphanage.

He spent that time telling stories of his parents and where they were now and writing them in his notebook .

The presence of carrot in his soup made him decide his parents were finally coming back.

He left the orphanage and set out across Poland to the city to find his parents.

It seems as though the whole book was one of his stories as he was oblivious to the actual massacre that was going on all around him. He thought rivers of blood were rabbits and burning of Jewish books was just unhappy customers.

I love the book and hope to read more from that author it the future. The way he wrote the book was amazing and I enjoyed it.

The characters were all (mostly) lovable and kind. (Especially Zelda!!!)

I rate it 8/10.

Science Fair (Step 5)




















Today we had a science fair. We asked the parents to come in and watch us do our science experiments. Some of us went in groups of two. I went with Jack and our experiment was called an ‘Alka-Seltzer Explosion’.

All of are experiments went great.

The two best that I would pick is the Alka-Seltzer Explosion and the Volcano from Patrick and Laoise.


We had a good day then we had a surprise at the end of the day. The teacher made sure we all were in the classroom. And it was aaaaaaaa………robot made from Lego.

And that finished the day  with playing with the robots so are day was good.

Today we had a Science fair. I did the ‘Glow-in-the-dark-water’ to make the water glow. I got a glass of water. Then I snapped open a #

highlighter and inside there is a sponge filled with ink. I squeezed all the ink in to the water.

Then I held an ultraviolet light over the cup and the water glowed very eerily and you could see all the chemicals. It was amazing!

The end.

Today we had a lot of expirements going on in our classroom. We had so much fun doing them.


I was the fourth one to do our expirement. John and I did the Inflating balloon. We did it once but then it didn’t really work but then we did it a second time and it worked perfectly.


We worked really hard on this through the week and everybody worked hard aswell.
Science Fair was really fun. I really enjoyed it!

Best Places to Visit: Learning Circle submission to Barry-USA Project:

Cross beach is a lovely place.It is about 10 km south of Belmullet on the mUllet Peninsula.The sand is nice and warm. Some times jellyfish are in the water. I go there every Sunday.

Sometimes I go there and I lie down on the beach.

I go there every Sunday. My uncle brings me there and he buys ice cream if it’s sunny.He brings my  cousins Tara and Tom.

I love Cross beach.

BY AVA  ❤️❤️❤️



Blacksod Bay is really cool and a great place to visit because there are fabulous beaches there: Elly Bay, Mullahroe are the most popular.

There are also some impressive lighthouses there too: Blacksod, BlackRock and Eagle Island,

There is massive rock there. The rock is a small island that us 365 m long and 30 m wide and is called Blackroc. In the middle of the Rock is the lighthouse. There always used to be a light house keeper in the light house but now, all the lighthouses are all automatic.

Sometimes the sea can get very rough in Blacksod Bay but it’s still a brilliant place.🌊🌞

By Laoise


Our area

I really like what we locally call “Skipper’s road” because it’s really peaceful and perfect. Skipper’s Road is near my house and near to my school.

I love this place because I can hear the waves crashing against the cliffs. I love being beside the sea. If I could, I would live on a beach.There is a lovely old pier that is nice to sit on, on a warm day.

It’s called Skipper’s road because there used to be a old man living in a old cottage that is still there. He used to make little boats and he used to be a skipper of a boat.

Unique structures or buildings in our community and Early Peoples Study (Learning Circle Project- submission to Sajana-Nepal and Christine-USA))

I am writing about round towers.

Round towers were usually built close to a monastery and most were built  between the 9th and 12th centuries. The Monks used them when the Viking were coming to attack them.

The monks used to have a lot of treasure back then. They would have a man in a wooden tower, on look out, and when he saw the Vikings, he would shout and all the monks would get the treasure and climb up a ladder. The door would be half way up the tower and when the monks and the treasure were safely in the tower, one of the monks would pull up the ladder and the Viking could not get them.

The monks were holy people.There was no soliders to fight for them when the Vikings attacked them that’s why they build the round towers. The Vikings could not get the gold and not kill them. The monks got all the gold and gems by trading stuff and sometimes they just had the gems from mining.

National Symbols- Symbols of Ireland Learning Circle submission to Olena-Ukraine Project:

National symbols of Ireland:

The Irish Flag

Our most important symbol is our flag. It is a tricolour: green, white and gold.

The green color stands for people of Ireland who wanted an Irish nation.

The orange  color stands for the British supporters of William of Orange  who settled in Northern Ireland in the 17th century.

The white section symbolises bringing both groups to peace.


The Shamrock

St.Patrick,Ireland’s patron saint, is said to have used this as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity when he was converting people to Christianity in the 5th century.

We wear the Shamrock on St.Patrick’s day to symbolise this.It is a great celebration and people all over the globe now celebrate this day


The Harp














From early times to the end of the 19th century Ireland is unique in having a musical instrument,the harp,as its national emblem.The national flag throughout the 19th century was known as the green flag always showed a gold harp on a green background.

One of our most famous harpists was Turlough O’ Carolan who wrote many beautiful pieces of music for th eharp.

Standing Stones (or menhirs)

Behind Siobhan’s house there is a circle of standing stones said to be from an old Irish tale telling the story of Grainne and Diarmuid

It starts with Fionn, (fyunn) a great warrior and leader of an old legend warrior gang,
His wife dies so he asks Grainne’s (grawn yah!) (a princess who was said to be the most beautiful girl in Ireland)  father for her hand in marriage.

Dhiarmuid was cursed by a old druid with a love spot. He hid it under his cap. The love spot made anyone who looked at it fall deeply in love with the

Fionn then invites them to his castle for a banquet in Grainne’s honour.
There Grainne meets the members of Fionns club including a man called Diarmuid (deer mud).
In the middle of the banquet two of Fionns dogs started to fight and Dhiarmuid jumped down from his chair to stop them.
While he done that his cap fell off and Grainne saw it. Immediately after she fell in love with Dhiarmuid.
During the banquet she kept quiet but after she told Diarmuid that she loved him.
Grainne told him that she wanted to run away with him and not marry Fionn.
Grainne said she would escape through the workers exit but Diarmuid decided to fight his way out ( at this point Fionn realised that grainne and Diarmuid were running away and he was mad)
Diarmuid vaulted over the castle wall away from Fionn and his friends. He met up with Grainne in the forest and it is said where they slept for the night they laid standing stones, they were always on the run from fionn.

I have some interesting stones near my house. The stones are behind my shed.

Local legend say that these stones were tombs.These tombs are behind my shed.

Originally the were shaped like a table but the stones fell down a good few years ago.

The  name in Irish is ‘Cloch Bhreac’ which means ‘spotted stone’.

My family say the the Giants buried people down in the tomb. They say the Giants put their hand prints on the stone and you can still see the marks on them!

What I do in my spare time.

In my spare time in school we read our library books or do a spare time math puzzle sheet.

At home people always do things way different than what we do in school.

At home people always play:





Gaelic and lots more.

I sometimes go on my tablet after I have an adventurous walk or cycle.I like to keep fit and healthy.

The weather isn’t the best here it’s only now and again we get sunny days and sometime it is raining all day.

Cumann na mBunscol

Yesterday my class went to our first game of Cumann na mBunscol.
Cumann Na mBunscol is a Gaelic football competition in which schools play against each other in the hope of becomming Cumann na mBunscol champions of the year.
Yesterday we (the girls) played against Shraigh in Bangor N.S pitch
and the boys played against Pullathomas in Pullathomas’s own pitch.
Both my team and the boys’ team played very well yet unfortunately both of us lost.

Despite our obviously disappointing losses, we all cheered up when our (really nice!) teachers brought us all into Sizzlers take away for chips and chicken nuggets!
We all had a great day and I enjoyed it very much.

We were gone all day and got no HOMEWORK!
