Today Ms Walsh's 1st Class had our Christmas Performance! The children worked very hard to learn lots of songs and rhymes, both in English and as Gaeilge. I am very, very proud of them all as they did a super job and really gave it socks!! We had a great time preparing for it and I hope the Mammys, Daddys, Nanas and everyone else who was able to make it had a great time too!
Take a look at our fabulous performers!! :)
Daddy Graham, Mammy Kelly and baby Finn joined us on Monday to teach us :)
Big thank you to Ms Barrett, Karen and Laura who helped with the art in our classroom today. We visited Ms Doyle and Mrs Cornejo's classrooms too. Brilliant day!!!
Check out all the Halloween fun we had before the break :)
Irish dancing classes will be starting back on Tuesday 5th September this year. Claire knows the boys and girls of St. Fergal's very well as she prepares them for our annual céilí. All abilities are catered for!
This year Claire is also offering an adult class, see below for details!
We had another fantastic summer camp this year. Take a look at some of the fun we had!! :)
All week there have been mini Gaelic matches going on at breaktimes. All teams had players from Junior Infants up to 3rd class. It was a great way to mix and learn skills from older classes.
The final was on today, Galway vs Monaghan.
It was a very exciting match!
Our supporters were ready
The players were in a parade before the match started.
It was a tight game with Monaghan coming out as the final winners.
The match was very delayed as it was a draw for so long. Apologies to all the Junior and Senior Infant parents who were waiting. We did expect the match and prize giving to be finished by 1.30. Like a typical All-Ireland final that was not the case!
Huge well done to all involved and to Joe, Ger, Ms Brady, Mr Moloney and Mr O Brien for organising the competition.
There were even Irish dancers there to entertain us at half time!
Well done to Monaghan who won and well done to Galway who were winning till the end.
We were very proud of our two players! They represented Junior Infants brilliantly!
Our two Junior Infant players!
Junior Infants went on a trip to the playground today.
The weather was so lovely and we've been working so hard it was time for a treat!
Hopefully we'll get to go again next week!
Ms Egan's class had a great time exploring the school garden today.
Ms Garde and Joe were there to help us harvest some radishes, lettuce, peas and strawberries. We had a delicious salad back in the classroom.
We even got our photo taken for the Bray People so keep an eye on tomorrow or next week's edition.
Keep an eye on our class blog for more images.

Today was World Book Day. It was a great day. The children made a huge effort to dress up as various characters from their favourite books. There were lots of genres of books discussed such as story books, factual books, annuals and comics. We talked about the characters in stories and what some of our favourite stories were. Some of the older classes did paired reading with the younger classes and each class took part in DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) for some time. The younger classes had an assembly to show off all their costumes. Don't the children look wonderful!?!
These are children in Ms Roche's Third Class all dressed up in their costumes.
The whole school took part in the Operation Transformation '10 at 10' initiative. At 10am everyone did 10minutes of physical activity.
A huge well done to Ms Brady and her second class who organised the event and demonstrated the Macarena dance for everyone to follow. There were more exercise going on in the senior yard for the older children too!
Check out this week's Bray People to check out some brilliant photos of the morning!
Parents from St. Fergal's, St Kilian's, St Peter's and Ravenswell visited UCD on the 17/02/17
We were given a fantastic tour of the grounds and the state of the art facilities, getting to see the largest lecture hall in Ireland, the 50 metre swimming pool, the cinema and we got to hear about how children and mature students can access UCD and apply to study there.
Aine, our guide, told us about the HEAR access programme for students from a disadvantaged background. The DEAR access programme for students with disabilities along with more information on the SUSI grant system and Scholarships available.
3rd class have been working very hard on their tables at home and in school. We are playing multiplication and division games in pairs and small groups every morning.
We love board games, Kaboom and Multiples Bingo, but our favourite game is Team Challenge!
We also made multiplication 'fortune tellers' for our 3x tables. We like using them to play with our friends while learning our tables. They were tricky to make, so a big than you to the boys and girls who helped us to do it!
Huge well done to all children pictured for winning attendance awards! Children received certificates for missing only 1 or 2 days of school and many children received certificates for 100% attendance!!!
First class went swimming for the first time today! We were all a little nervous and a lot excited!!! Everyone was very brave and ended up having a great time! Take a look at Ms Walsh's eager beavers getting ready to make waves at Shoreline! :)
Big thanks to everyone who came to help us and cheer us on :)
