Welcome to Ms. Cawley’s class!
A huge welcome back to Ms. Cawley and her new first-class pupils. We are a class of 24 pupils in a busy classroom. We are settling into our new surroundings nicely and getting used to the longer school day. We have an exciting year ahead full of challenges and learning including the ukulele and the tin whistle. We are also excited to begin our swimming lessons. We intend to work together as a team to make this the most enjoyable school year it can be. ‘Téimid le chéile’
We have continued to work hard throughout the month of October learning about 2D shapes, making them using our bodies was especially fun and making magnificent monsters with clay was great fun also.
Maths Week kept us busy solving two problems every day and Sixth class helped us to create some fabulous ‘Shapenstein’ monsters.
We wrapped up the half term with a very spooky Halloween walk to Huntington Castle and an extremely messy experiment making spooky slime. A
well-deserved break was earned by us all!
It has been an extremely busy September for Ms. Cawley’s First class back in Clonegal. We have had a very musical start to the school year tackling the tin whistle to begin with and following on with the ukulele. We are learning so much musical theory and impressing the whole school with our talents.
We have also done some amazing art work, with more ‘in progress’, focusing on colour mixing theory and painting skills. We also started swimming lessons this term amounting to an action-packed first month.
