Up D'Rocks

Posted by on in The Faythe School

Room 12, 5th class were treated to a guided tour of the local environs, commonly know as "D’Rocks”! which was amazing. 
The fabulous tour guide, Colm, who doubles as the boss at the South End Family Resource Centre, guided the students around Hilly Holly, the Devils Chair and the wooded area of Maudlintown.

Colm imparted his great knowledge about the flora and fauna of the area while showing us a lot of different types of plants and trees, such as Beech, Hazel, Spanish Chestnut and Horse Chestnut. He also showed us different rocks such as Quartz. He pointed out some trees that were sown by Senior Infants many years ago.

When we went up Holly Hill and looked down over the town we could see our school. Colm also pointed out the three churches. This is one of the only locations around the town where you can see the three churches together. We all climbed up on a big rock to get a better view over Maudlintown. We collected lots of different parts of nature such as leaves, twigs, branches, ferns and saplings.

When we got back to school we did art and we used this to inspire us. We created lots of lovely drawings and sketches. We had a lovely walk, we wish it could have lasted longer!

Chromatography - Room 10

In our class we did something called 'Pass the Rainbow.'

You need six cups or glasses food colouring is next you can use whatever colour you want. We used red, blue and green.

We put water and food colouring into glass 1, nothing in 2, water and colouring in 3, nothing in 4 and water and colouring in 5 and left number 6 free.

We put in paper tissue in between each of the cups. After some time the water climbed up the tissue and was the colour of the water in the cup. After a few hours we checked it again and the tissues had changed colour and the colours had mixed.

Innocent Sow and Grow 2017 in R.10

Just before the mid-term break the children from Room 10 planted their very own vegetables as part of the #innocentsowandgrow initiative 2017.

They planted carrots, runner-beans and cress-seeds.

The children are caring for the vegetables every day monitoring the progress with great interest and attentiveness.

We hope to have our first 'crop' before Easter, just in time for Easter Sunday dinner!

We were delighted to welcome some grandparents to room 10 first class on Grandparents Day. We enjoyed hearing the stories about what school was like for them. Many of our visitors went to school in  St John of God, The Faythe so it was very interesting to compare school in 2017 and in the past ( we won't mention the year!). 

We were treated to some entertaining stories by local man and grandad of Romy, Annie and Seán, Willie Furlong. He told us about the jam baps, the cold classrooms and the strict rules in the school. We look forward to Mr. Furlong's next visit to room 10!

Room 1 and room 10 joined forces this morning for the Operation Transformation 10@10. Both classes displayed great aerobic fitness and everyone finished the activity with a smile on their face. We even finished the last minute with some great 'dab' moves!! Well done to all.

The Write Stuff - in Room 10!

Posted by on in The Faythe School

All the mams, dads and guardians of the children in Room 10 know how hard they have being working this year.

However recently we did the story of 'Fionn and the Salmon of Knowledge' and the hand-writing was just too good not to share with the wider school community.

Then I had the unenviable task of choosing two samples of writing to represent the great work completed by ALL the class.


I chose one girl (Hope) and one boy (Leon) but could have selected any of the writing.....I know that if the Santa letters were as well written that there will be very happy children from Room 10 on Christmas morning!!!

The boys and girls from room 10 had a 'spooktacular day' on Friday. Everyone was dressed up for the 'Halloween Sponsored Walk.'

We had witches, bats, vampires, Oompa Loompa's and many more scary characters doing spelling tests.. What a strange sight!

Happy Hallowe'en to everyone - be safe and be seen out there!

'Oíche Shamhna Shona!'
