Storm Ophelia

Ex-Hurricane ‘Storm Ophelia’ hit our shores last week. You could not listen to the radio, open a newspaper or watch tv without hearing about this famous storm.

Thankfully Sligo was not hit too badly and everyone listened

Happy Halloween from 4th Class

We were all amazed by the amazing costumes all the children of Ransboro N.S. dressed in today. This year the school decided to fund raise for ‘The Mitchell Sisters’, former pupils of our school. Here is a look at the costumes that 4th Class appeared in this year. Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you all have a very enjoyable break!

Throwback Thursday

Earlier in the year Third Class took a trip to Hazelwood with a wildlife expert called Michael Bell. He taught us many interesting facts and showed us the best places to find mini beasts in the woods. The children worked together to identify trees and plants which they had previously learned about in class. It was such an educational and fun trip!

Second Class Art

We have enjoyed many Art lessons so far this term. The strands we focused on are: drawing, paint and colour, fabric and fibre. Here is a selection of their good work.

Marble Run

4th Class were involved in a group project in which they had to create a ‘Marble Run’ out of recycled materials. Their object was to make the marble move as slowly as possible. The run had to be 2m in length and they were free to come up with whatever design and obstacles they wished. The finished projects were amazing! They were all so
