Mr. McArdle

Welcome to the class page.

Welcome to our page!  We have really enjoyed our first few weeks of 2nd class!  We are learning loads and have already finished our first book – “The Witches” by Roald Dahl.  Our attendance has been so good that we were rewarded with a popcorn party last Friday!  We are really looking forward to a spooktacular Halloween.  We’ll keep you updated throughout the year.  Thanks for visiting our page!


End of year Tea Party

Summer Term

Hi everybody, we have very busy in 2nd class over the past few weeks. We had a great day on May 20th for our First Holy Communion. We did dance with Aisling and Student-Teacher races for Active Week. We went walking in Charleville, had a popcorn party as a reward for our attendance and had a very memorable journey back though time as we visited Clonard House. We are really enjoying the sunshine at the moment. We are looking forward to Sing Fest, our school tour to AIT and Fun Day as we make the most of our last few weeks at St. Joseph’s. See you all soon!

Spring Term

We have been having great fun in Room 11 since we came back after the Christmas break.  Skipping, Engineering and Dance are just some of the cool activities we have been doing while we also really enjoyed Grandparents’ Day recently.  We are currently working on “We are Writers” and are preparing for our First Confessions.  See you all soon!

Grandparents’ Day


Merry Christmas from Mr. McArdle’s class!  We had a great time preparing for Christmas.  We sang carols, made decorations and even had a pizza party!  We even had two winners in the Christmas draw.  See you all in 2018!


We’ve  had a great time over the last few weeks, especially dressing up for Halloween and doing fruit tasting.  We’re really looking forward to preparing for Christmas and some of our class will be doing a choir performance with Mr. McArdle on December 3rd at the church!


The class enjoyed making delicious fruit smoothies with Mrs. O’Brien in the Parents’ Room.
