Congratulations to our “Fearless Four” Team A who came in first place in the Credit Union Quiz in Claremorris. They are busy preparing for the Regional Finals in March. A very well done to our Team B who also scored well.
Junior and Senior Infants started game stations outside. There were four separate stations- Hoola hoops, stilts, ladder game and hopscotch. 6th class were put with groups to help them and tell them what to do.
The small children really enjoyed the games and they didn’t get too bored as they moved stations every few minutes. We will do it on a Monday and Friday.
“Friends for Life” is going well. We have done pizza massage and other relaxation techniques such as “Milkshake Breathing”. Milkshake breathing is where you get a straw and breathe in through your nose and lightly out through your mouth.
We had a visit from Caroline from the Road Safety Authority this week.
Bricks Club is going very well.
Have a look at some lovely art from our three classrooms. The Junior Room explored the technique of Pointillism, the Middle Room produced some lovely cityscapes and the Senior Room drew some very interesting portraits of each other.
On St. Brigid’s Day, February 1st, we made some lovely crosses from rushes/reeds. The children from Ms. Geraghty’s and Ms. Muldoon’s rooms went into small groups. We all helped each other.
The first two weeks back to school after Christmas have been busy. The Credit Union Quiz teams have been chosen. The under 11 “Fearless Four” is Conn, Eleanor, Aisling and Daragh with Faith as a sub. The over 11 “Fearless Four” is Jack, Eóin, Karl and Jason with Tom as a sub. The competition will be held on the 28th of January in Claremorris Town Hall. We are all looking forward to it.
Zumba started back on Thursday. It was nice to see Michelle back in our school. She is very lively, friendly and patient. She teaches us different dances e.g. “Tiptoe” by Jason Derulo. Zumba is a great way to get fit.
Friends For Life has started again for 3rd, 4th and 5th classes. Ms. Presnail and Ms. Geraghty do it with us. We go into groups on Fridays; there are four in every group. We talk about feelings and we learn skills to help us to become brave and confident.
All the children in the school are learning about the area of Cross. We are exploring the landscape and we are also learning about different features and places in our local area. It is very interesting. We have found our townlands on the map and have translated them into Irish.

We have been very busy over the last few weeks. All the weeks of rehearsing finally paid off when we all performed excellently at our Christmas Concert which took place in Glencorrib Hall on Tuesday, December the 12th.
All the classes have produced some fabulous work over the last while.
We in the Senior Room used our scientific skills to create super light up christmas cards. We made a circuit using a coloured bulb, copper tape and a battery. They look brilliant.
