Áthas Senior

Welcome to our class page!  We finally managed to get a photo of the whole class today.  This year is different for us as we have Marie, Deirdre and Sandra working with us every day.  Here are their photos so that you know who is who!


Engineering Workshop

The children had a wonderful experience today – an engineering workshop with Scott!.  We made rollercoasters for marbles using stretches of tubing, tape and even incorporated bridges into our constructions!  We had a great time and learned so much!  Check out the photos and videos of our achievements.

Road Safety Week

We joined our friends in Athas Junior to go on a safety walk around the estate.  We talked about how to cross the road safely.  We also spoke about how we should never go into the staff car park and definitely should NEVER go over or under the barriers, even when a grown up is with us.  The car park is not a safe place to be even if our mammy or daddy is with us.

Christmas Pop-up Shop

What a day we had last Friday!  We turned the classroom into a pop-up Christmas shop and the children used their savings to buy presents for their families.  We had a real till and a pick-n-mix section  where there children could put a few treats together for their brothers and sisters.  After buying their presents, we had a wrapping station, a label making table and a Christmas card making section too!  After such a busy, we had Supermac’s for lunch before carrying on with our Christmas work.  Hopefully everyone will love their presents – ho, ho, ho!

Halloween Parade

Halloween is always a very special and exciting time for Athas.  This year we decided to emulate the internet sensation ~Baby Shark.  We had baby shark triplets, Mammy and Daddy Shark, Granny and Grandad Shark, Auntie Shark, Music Shark and Teacher Shark.  As usual we led the school on the Halloween parade around the estate.  Music Shark kept us all in tune so we could sing our way around.

Halloween Party

We had a great morning at the Sacred Heart School for the annual Halloween party.  As usual, we had a ball and met up with all our friends from other schools.

Eradication of Poverty

We were delighted to be involved in an event to mark the 70th anniversary of the development of the Charter of Human Rights which was celebrated as part of the Eradication of Poverty movement recently.  Our representative, Abbey, read our the declaration “The right to fair treatment” and read if perfectly!  We were all so proud of Abbey!


We had no visit from Noel this week so while the cat’s away …

Deirdre brought in her accordion and we all had a try.  Then we played lots of music games and tried a few dances.
