Second class are learning  Óró sé do bheatha abhaile. 
5 minutes each night is all it takes to make you a GREAT tin whistle player.

Playing the tin whistle

A very important area of play involves building with construction toys of different kinds. This is an important creative and learning experience. Construction toys offer open- end opportunities for children to DESIGN and CREATE imaginative structures.

Construction toys help

*motor skills.

*spatial skills.

*capacity for creative, divergent thinking.

*social and language skills.

 We are so lucky to have a   great supply of  good quality construction toys in our room. We have lego, K-nex and magsnaps.  The children enjoy playing with these in the morning and  during golden time. Check out some of the great creations.

We have lots of fun at school!
