  • indicating using their hand
  • the over the shoulder glance

  2. Helmet Check
  3. Clothes Check
  4. Weather Check

The seniors then made posters for homework based on the cycling workshop:

Projects on Australia

I am very proud of the 5th and 6th class pupils. Not only did they prepare excellent projects, they also presented them to the children in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th class. In their projects, they included pieces on the history and geography relating to Australia.

Chess Workshop

Children from 2nd to 6th class enjoyed a chess workshop with John Alfred on Friday, 21st September.  They discovered how all the different pieces move and gradually learned how to play a full game of chess. Chess is a great way for children to develop their logic and problem-solving skills.

Stay Safe, Stay Clear

The senior pupils learned about six key safety rules as part of the ESB safety campaign. They created colourful posters to depict these safety rules.

Have a look at the official Stay Safe, Stay Clear video which helps you to learn all about electricity, the dangers, and how to stay safe around electricity.

Senior Room School Tour

The Senior Room from Taunagh N.S. went to W5 and Titanic Belfast with 5th and 6th class from Ardkeeran N.S. We were very fortunate that Peace IV funded the cost of the bus for this trip. As a result, pupils only have to pay for their tickets into W5 and Titanic Belfast. We had a most enjoyable day and the children represented the school so well!
