Mr Donnelly’s Fourth Class

The last few weeks have been absolutely hectic! If we weren’t playing maths games and solving puzzles for Maths week or doing our homework in unusual places for “Roamwork4homework” (see our twitter @zaptower), we were swimming in Loughlinstown pool or experiencing a bit of culture at St. Joseph’s of Clooney’s musical “Footloose”. You see?! Flat out!! Happy Halloween everyone!!!

Match Report from Mr Allen

Anne’s girls march into semi final.

The St. Anne’s senior girls gaelic football team have reached the Cumann na mBunscol semi final after a comprehensive victory over St. Luke’s on Wednesday. The girls produced their best performance of the year to record a sensational 6-09 to 0-02 win. Playing with the wind in the first half the girls attacked from the throw in and were soon ahead thanks to superb points from Carmel Fitzachary and Beth Killeen.  As St. Anne’s grew in confidence the chances continued to arrive and soon St Anne’s had their first goal as Beth Killeen rounded off a great team effort. More joy was to follow as Róisín Murray seized upon a defensive mistake to score from close range.  At the other end the St. Anne’s defence was in top form, and with Ava Mulcahy brilliantly leading the line the girls would conceed only 1 point in the whole first half. The second half would prove to be equally 1-sided as St Anne’s continued their relentless pressure. A quick point from Jessica Moore was followed by well taken goals by Alannah O’ Toole and Carmel Fitzachary. Then came the goal of the match. Catching the ball superbly in her own box, Róisín Murray decided to run forward with the ball. As St. Lukes tried in vain to tackle her the St.Anne’s playmaker raced past their entire midfield and defence before finishing calmly into the back of the net.  With time running out the goal scoring was completed as Lauren Boothman bullied her way through the defence bofore blasting the ball into the net. At the back Anne’s were proving equally ruthless with Tess O’ Toole and Kate Hanly leading superbly from half back. Anne’s would complete the scoring in the final minute as Anna Salaverria set up Aisling O Dwyer for a fine point.


Man of the match: Carmel Fitzachary.


Go the St. Anne’s Girls!!:))))

A Trip to the Zoo for Fourth Class!

On Friday the 27th April 2018, Mr Allen’s, Ms Kelly’s, and Ms Travers’ fourth classes went on an educational visit to Dublin zoo. They were transported there by bus and when they got there they were split into two groups.

They saw a lot of animals such as different types of monkeys and big cats like tigers and lions. They also saw lemurs, a real panda, orangutans, sea lions and penguins.

After that they went to the African plains and met a tour guide who brought them around and showed them lots more animals and told them lots of interesting facts. She showed them gorillas, chimpanzees, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, water hogs and some other species. Then they had lunch and after lunch it was time to head back to the bus. They had a great time and learned lots. Big thanks to all the staff involved.

Alison’s Shop!

Hello! My name is Pranav and I write for the St. Anne’s Media Team.

My story is about Alison’s Shop. Alison’s shop was a place where you could get stationary. You could get cool pencils, rulers and much more. The shop started in Ms. Travers’ class and in two weeks everyone knew about it. Without Noreen, Alison and Ms Travers the shop wouldn’t have existed.

In a month it became a trend. All the money went to Trócaire and again it was thanks to Noreen, Alison and Ms. Travers. We raised €420. Fifth class also raised money for Trócaire. As a result, we were able to give Trócaire a large cheque that will support people to live with dignity and independence in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Super Swimmers in 4th Class!

We interviewed Mr. Allen’s 4th class. It was their first time doing the class swimming lessons in Loughlinstown Leisure Centre. The class did it for forty minutes every Wednesday for eight weeks. Once at swimming, the swimming coaches put the children into small groups.

Group 1 were the strong, high-level swimmers. They learnt to do all 4 strokes. The strokes they learnt were freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Group 2 did 3 strokes – freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. Group 3 learnt to do the front crawl. Group 4 were the beginners. During the 8 weeks, they learnt to swim. Well done!

I interviewed a boy in Mr Allen’s class. He didn’t do the first few weeks of swimming as he was nervous but after getting encouragement from his class-mates, teachers and coaches he gave it a go. He is so pleased he tried to swim.

Thank you for reading our interview about Mr Allen’s 4th class swimming lessons. Finally, Mr. Allen is so kind – he gave each child 50c for the lockers!

Art, Swimming and School Tours in Ms. Kelly’s Class

Ms Kelly’s class have been busy making skulls and fireworks but don’t worry they are not real, they are made from crep paper. The class have been very busy writing stories, doing equations, spellings and singing.

All the fourth classes are still doing swimming on a Thursday which includes two more weeks after the midterm. The classes also went to see High School Musical in Cluny.

Spooky Spider’s in Ms. Kelly’s Class!

This is what’s going on in Ms Kelly’s class!

First, they had to get to know each other. They did lots of art and they wore t-shirts so that they didn’t get their clothes dirty. They made spider webs with spiders in them. They also did a project about the school. Then they played sparkle in Irish and English. They did recorder and singing and Go Noodle, lots of running laps, lots of homework and lots of Maths.
