School Calendar


Welcome to Ms. Wadding’s class!

Welcome to Ms. Wadding’s 3rd and 4th class. We have a busy class of 27 this year and we are so excited for the year ahead. We cannot wait to show you all what we get up to over the next few months. We just know that it’s going to be fantastic!


We enjoyed our start to the year here in Third and Fourth class. January was filled with lots of new and exciting activities. We started our GAA training with Kevin on Tuesdays. We have learned all about team bonding skills, football drills and much more. We cannot wait to see what the next few weeks with him will bring.
We completed our Egyptian projects this week. We had a great time learning all about Egyptian foods, clothing, famous people and pharaohs. Everyone worked so well together and produced amazing projects. Well done everyone!
A few students in our class & Ms Hayden’s competed in the Primary School’s Cross Country Competition which took place in Carlow Hurling Club. Everyone did so well and we are all so proud of them. Paige came seventh in the 4th class girls race and received a medal on the day. Well done Paige!


We had a very festive month here in 3rd & 4th class.
We started our advent calendar on the 1st of December. Each day was filled with a festive activity, Christmas riddle or joke. We loved doing this every morning. We had popcorn & movie days, candy cane treats, Christmas yoga and much more.
Our Christmas play ‘Santa’s on Strike’was a huge success! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed performing for their families and friends.
Our boys & girls teams took part in an indoor hurling tournament in Kildavin. We were unfortunate on the day, but had a great time competing.
Finally, we had a very special visit from an Garda Síochána this month. We loved sitting in the Garda cars, trying out the sirens & meeting everyone.
We would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy & happy Christmas and New Year.
See you in January!


There were lots of exciting things happening during the month of November in Third and Fourth Class.
We began the month with a shared buddy reading activity with Mrs O’Meara’s Junior Infants. We loved reading to the children and we also had a mini P.E  lesson with them.
We decorated our classroom in time for the Late Late Toy Show with Patrick Kielty. We all decorated our class tree by hanging lights and baubles on it. We did a Late Late Toy Show quiz and Ms Wadding gave us some Late Late Toy Show treat bags to bring home.
We are so excited for the busy December we have ahead, especially as we will be performing our class play – SANTA’S ON STRIKE!


October was a great month here in 3rd & 4th class.
Our annual Halloween walk to Hunting Castle kicked off our midterm break. There were lots of creative, spooky costumes around Clonegal! We performed our Thriller song & dance in our whole school assembly. We had so much fun learning this.

Our girls football team competed in their final in Fenagh on Thursday the 26th of October. Unfortunately we were unlucky in the end,however we are so proud of each and every player.


We have had a very busy September here in Third and Fourth class.
Our guitar lessons have started back with Paul from Music Generation. We look forward to each and every Wednesday with him practising our musical skills. We are currently learning Shivers by Ed Sheerhan and also Zombie by The Cranberries.

Swimming lessons are in full swing already, as each and every Tuesday we head to Graiguecullen Swimming Pool. We have a busy day of travelling on the bus and have learned so many water skills this year so far.
We are very fortunate to have Ms Nolan working with us this month. She has been teaching usa few lessons each day, which have been so much fun. We have completed Data in Maths, Bia sa Gaeilge, Tom Crean in History, Arranmore Islands in Geography and many more topics with her.

Cumann na mBunscol is back to a flying start. We have played two away games so far this year in both Myshall and Kildavin. Our girls team had a great win over Kildavin this week and we are all really enjoying taking part.
