The Stone Age – 6th Class

As part of Term 1 History, we explored and created an information wall about the three eras of the Stone Age. We created tools, weapons and jewelry, and we created our very own class wall painting based on the famous Cave Paintings of Lascaux.


Trains and Buddies in Junior Infants

Last week we painted trains then our buddies helped us to stick on different shapes for the wheels, funnels and engines.


Shapes in the Environment

Today we went outside to find examples of different shapes. We found lots of rectangles, squares, circles and semi-circles but not many triangles. There were lots of large shapes on the basketball court that we could all stand on and walk around.


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.

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
