Miss Foley's 2nd class dressed up in scary costumes for Halloween! The boys made spooky spiders! The boys also enjoyed some Halloween treats and fun Halloween activities.
Ms. McGarr’s Class
Last Monday, 21st October, Ms. McGarr’s class had a taste of Autumn with apple and blackberry crumble and ice-cream.
“It was yummy.” - Jack T.
“It was a very nice taste of Autumn.” - Jack C.
“It was delicious” - Filip
“Even though we’re in second class, it was first class standard!” - Conor C.
Ms. McGarr is wearing some of her students’ masks and most of them are in costumes. Brilliant costumes!
Ms. Lynch’s Class
Everybody is dressed up superbly and they are all having delicious, sweet chocolate and treats. They are all having great fun and enjoying themselves. Vampires, werewolves, bats and pirates can all be seen. The class are watching a movie with Ms. McDermott’s class.
Ms. McDermott’s Class
They are all wearing costumes and masks, having sweets, watching a movie and having a great time! With the sweets and treats, they are in heaven! No work, unlike our class! They have also been drawing cupcakes and we’ve seen some great colouring from the boys.

Coming up to Halloween we have many different forms of decoration. Most classes have put up decorations to indulge in the festivities. Here are a few examples:
There are some very, very scary skeletons on the doors of Ms. Foley’s and Ms. Kelly’s classrooms. One or two classrooms boast a collection of haunted houses. There’s a big party going on in Ms. Kelly’s class. As well as all those we have the first, second and third classes kitted out in costumes.
Thank you to everyone involved and we hope you have a spooktacular Halloween!

From the 11th to the 17th October, it was Maths Week for schools all across the country. One of those schools was St. Corban's!
Mr. Ryan and his class had the job of organising a fun activity for the other classes to enjoy. Mr. Ryan taught his class some maths magic tricks, some maths games and the answers to a few maths puzzles as well!
The classes came in one after another and Mr. Ryan and his class did the activities with them. It seemed that every class was more amazed by the magic, more puzzled by the quizzes and more delighted by the games than the class before them!
The event was a huge hit! Not only did the participating classes have a good time but Mr. Ryan's did as well.
Maths Week was a great week in St. Corban's.

On Friday the 3rd of October, the four 5th classes were extremely lucky to be given the chance to partake in the Artist for a Day programme, funded by both the PTA and the Kildare Co. Council Arts Service. Liz Smith, a very talented artist, taught us how to create zoetropes. A zoetrope is a mechanical toy with a slotted drum, that when twirled makes objects withing the drum give the illusion of continuous motion.
The sixth class maths group were going to have a brilliant day. They were heading to DCU in Dublin for a magic maths show.
10:30am = The maths class meet up in the yard.
10:35 am = The maths class leave on a bus to DCU.
11:15am = The maths class arrive at DCU
Now that the maths class has arrived at DCU , its time for show!
The show is under way and it is BRILLIANT! Andrew (the magician/mathematician) is teaching us loads of fantastic maths tips and tricks. The magic tricks are superb and are leaving everyone amazed!
Andrew pulls a piece of paper and a lighter out of his pocket. He sets the paper alight and when the fire disappears he is left with a €10 note in his hand! He presents St. Corban's own Eoin Keogh with the tenner!
Unfortunately for Eoin, the magician asked for the €10 back but gave Eoin a signed copy of his new book instead! He then folded the €10 note which transformed into a fake $1,000,000 note! He then gave the note to Mr. Lane who looks after the sixth class maths group in St. Corban's.
But like everything, unfortunately, the show had to end. So the students all ate their packed lunches in DCU's cafeteria.
The bus then drove us back to St. Corban's and the day was over. Everyone had a fantastic day.
Some more thoughts from the day...
