Our third class students recently enjoyed some cycle safety training. Thank you to everyone involved for organising this fun and important event.
On the 10th of November 3rd class went to the library to watch a robot demonstration.
First my dad and John told us what a robot is. You might think a remote control is a robot but scientifically it's not because scientists say a robot has to be programmed to do stuff. After we learnt about robots we watched them play a game of soccer. The blues beat the reds 2-0.
After the game we saw them doing a penalty shootout. A robot was about to take a penalty and then tripped over himself. Then we had to go back to school and that is my story about 3rd class going to see the robots.

Alan Nolan is a comics writer, graphic designer, artist and co-creator of the horror series Sancho. He is the creator of The Big Break Detectives Casebook, a graphic novel for younger readers, and the 'Murder Can Be Fatal' mysteries. Ms. Dunne's 3rd class and Ms. McCarville's 4th class went to Barker and Jones as part of World Book Day celebrations for a workshop with Alan. All the boys received a bookmark, postcard and their own mini comicbook which was started by Alan and could be finished at home. He showed how to draw characters and signed some copies of his books for the class.
The boys in room 22 enjoyed their pancakes today with Nutella, jam, sugar, lemon juice, golden syrup, and marshmallows for toppings!
On the 28th of February, all the third classes took part in cycle safety in the senior yard in St. Corban’s. It was a great day with the sun shining brightly.
Everyone got a high vis jacket. One Garda and one community worker came in to show how to cycle safely:
Rafal was also there to fix any broken bikes.
The Garda let Eoghan Kelly and me onto his motorbike!
The students all got certificates at the end showing that they completed the course. Now they know how to cycle safely.
