On what was possibly one of the most miserable wets days in recent memory Ms. Forde's 3rd Class and Ms. Foley's 2nd & 3rd Class headed to Clara Lara....the water based activity centre in Wicklow!!!!!

However miserable the day was the staff in Clara Lara did everything they could to make the day as enjoyable as possible for the children.

As you'll see from the video below the children had a great day and they seem have to discovered a new 'anti-freeze / cold water protector / insulator'.......Candy Floss!!!! Loads and loads of Candy Floss!!!!

3rd Class went to the Library on Mallin Street on Tuesday 21st May 2019 and having witnessed the metamorphosis of frogspawn to frogs in the foyer over the past few months they were really in tune for Ciarán from the Irish Wildlife Trust who spoke about biodiversity and how we can look after our wildlife in Ireland.

Comments from the children in the class!

A.H. – I loved when we were learning about water, food, recycling and more.

K.N. – I loved the video about the dragon fly.

Country and Transport Project

Country Project

First we got into groups, next we got the tablets and then we researched our country.Ava’s godfather Surken came in to tell us more information about his country. When we got enough information we got posters. We printed out some information and wrote the rest ourselves. Then we stuck it onto our posters. We stuck down pictures as well. We also stuck down our country flag. When we were finished we presented them to the class.

Transport Project

The transport project was similar to the country projects. Our options were cars, planes, rockets, trains, boats, bicycles and carriages. We were short on posters so some groups had to make their own using different coloured paper. Some groups didn’t finish their projects. But they presented them anyway. It was really fun!

Fire Brigade visits 3rd Classes

Posted by on in The Faythe School

After break on recently Ms Forde and Ms Foley’s 3rd Classes went to the 'Breakfast Room' and two firemen from the Fire Station up near Clonard visited and taught us different ways about how to be safe around fire. After that, they showed us cards that had dangerous things on them. One had cigarettes on it and asked us if anyone`s parents smoked and most people put their hands up. If a cigarette is lit, the best way to get rid of it is to put it in the fire.

After that they gave loads more tips for general safety at home.....

  • Candles – They said to never leave a lighting candle on when an adult isn't watching
  • Plugs –leave everything plugged in except for the fridge – we saw some plugs that had over-heated and went on fire.
  • Frankie false -never make a false call about a fire because it`s dangerous and you could get arrested.
  • 999 or 112 – numbers you need to ring if there is an emergency at your house, at your school or anywhere else.
  • Pan – don’t leave a hot pan where children can get it – always have someone older than you/ parents watch it.
  • Deep fat fryer – if water gets in contact, it will go on fire- be careful around them!-always have a parent around.
  • Lighters / matches  - up high and only adults can use them-kids can burn themselves or could get some fire on them.
  • Smoke alarms – should check yours and clean it by putting the hover up to it. If you don’t have one, you can call the fire station or the council and they can come and put one in for you.
  • Plan Man – Like in school, we should have a plan at home just in case there is a fire anywhere.

Then they showed us their yellow helmet and allowed some of us wear one. Ms. Forde took pictures with us wearing it and sent them to our parents. Then, people asked the firemen questions about fire, like how much minutes would it take for a fire to spread or other things.

Room 4's visit to the County Council!

Posted by on in The Faythe School

Before Christmas, the children in room 4 went on a bus to the new County Council building as part of the Junior Achievement Programme. Prior to the visit, Ger Mulhall from the County Council had been visiting the school every Tuesday and speaking to the class about the local area, his job in the Council and the different uses of the lands in the Wexford Town area.

On our visit to the Council Headquarters in Carricklawn, we saw the Council Chamber where we met and were addressed by the Chairman of the County Council, Councillor John Hegarty. On the day we were given a tour of the rest of the Council building and we also saw Ger’s own workstation within the building. The children found the trip very interesting and were very attentive throughout. It was a most enjoyable day and a nice lead-in to the Christmas Holidays.

Earlier this week Lauren Nolan was selected by Beat FM to travel to school in one of Beat FM 'Beat Fleet' cars.

Entered in the competition before Christmas by her mam, Bev, Lauren didn't even know she had won until a few days beforehand.

As part of the prize Beat FM crew, David and Emma, rolled up to Lauren's house for breakfast around 8am and they then interviewed with James, Lauren and Bev before departing for school in the height of luxury accompanied by the coolest tunes.

Lauren then brought the 'Beat gang' up to her classroom (room 9) for more of the same. All the class were thrilled, especially with they were given key-rings.
There was even time for a quick interview with 'yours truly' but the nerves weren't too bad so i hope I did Lauren proud.
