6th  class debaters had their end of year debates on Tuesday the 28th of June.  This was their second last day in school, yet the standard of competition didn’t suffer!   The first motion was ‘Children should be Elected to the Dail’ and this resulted in a narrow victory for the proposing team (Rachel, Rory, Julie and Alex).

In our second debate ‘Boxes should be Banned as a Sport’ the result went to the team opposing the motion (Liam, Jack, Andrew and Frankie).  Well done to all who took part and worked so hard all year.     20160628_113611 20160628_113608    20160628_112916 20160628_112650 20160628_111045 20160628_120743 20160628_120804 20160628_111042 20160628_120724 IMG-20160628-WA0004 (2) 20160628_114735 20160628_114648

We wrote books for Ms. Halley’s Junior Infants. They are reading a book called ‘The Picnic’ so we wrote books for them using the words they know. The Junior Infants read the books we made, and then helped us to colour the pictures we drew.

The books are hanging on the wall in our classroom, and we are really proud of all our work!


Wayne O’Connor is an illustrator and story teller. We were so lucky to see him in Tramore library last week. He drew pictures, and told stories from Roald Dahl’s book ‘Revolting Rhymes’. But, most of all, he was really funny and made us all laugh!


Ms. Halley’s senior infants and Mr. O’Sullivan’s 5th class have created a great partnership this year by ‘Buddy Reading’ together. All the boys and girls from both classes really enjoy every time they meet for buddy reading. Well done to 5th class for being so responsible and helpful to your buddies and also well done to all the senior infants for concentrating so hard on their new words and reading all those exciting books! IMG_1128 IMG_1129 IMG_1130 IMG_1131 IMG_1118 IMG_1119 IMG_1121 IMG_1122 IMG_1123 IMG_1124 IMG_1125 IMG_1126 IMG_1127

The Havishams

The Havishams

One day an author named Martin Brennan came to our classroom. And he wrote a book called the Havishams. He explained the story and demonstrated on how he writes a story. He said to start a story with a bang. Like how he told us about jimmy the lepracaun and the lazer robot with rocket boosters. And how to express are characters like if it was a teenager from LA she would be like “OMG I WAS WATCHING THE X-FACTOR AND IT WAS LIKE OMG !!!!!!!!!!”
