Second Class 2021

Second class have been working very hard this year. They are learning a lot and have also been having great fun with their friends in school.

We love science! We learned all about the human skeleton and made some cool cotton bud skeletons to decorate the school corridors. “The Gummy Bear Experiment” was interesting and had some very surprising results. Check out the picture for proof! We planted some daffodils with Bean Uí Riain as well.

Our class love going for walks on the school track and using our whiteboards for handwriting. Second class researched and presented their very first projects last week. They were super impressive!

We have been very lucky to have Diarmuid Kearney (Cobh and Cork U20 footballer) coaching us for PE. He has been working on fundamental movement and Gaelic football skills with us.

Last week, Rang 2 were very proud to win the “Random Acts of Kindness” school contest. The children earned 3 homework passes which they can use whenever they wish! We also made beautiful “Attitude of Gratitude” posters.

Well done everybody!

Hallowe’en at Walterstown NS

Last Thursday Walterstown NS was alive with colour as the girls and boys arrived to school in their Hallowe’en costumes! Superheros, witches, wizards, zombies, fairies and hulks were just some of the characters who we welcomed in the door!

The girls and boys had lots of fun and spent the day partaking in Hallowe’en activities, games and even an outdoor Hallowe’en disco! We all enjoyed the Hallowe’en atmosphere in the school and loved checking out each others costumes and giving our teachers a fright! Well done to everyone for making such a fantastic effort and we hope you have a spooktacular Hallowe’en!!!

Aqua Class 2021

The boys & girls in the Aqua Class have been learning & exploring lots of new things.
We are practicing our reading every day.

To celebrate autumn we made colourful leaf rubbings, friendly squirrels & leafy hedgehogs.
During sensory play time we played with cornflour, shaving foam, playdoh & dried foods.
We had fun with our friends walking on the track, playing in the yard & doing yoga in our classroom.

This month we made ghosts, spiders and witches. We are listening to Halloween songs & rhymes. Happy Halloween everyone!

A very special visitor – Sonia O’Sullivan!

We had the pleasure of welcoming Olympic Silver Medallist and local star Sonia O’Sullivan to Walterstown National School today. Sonia came with Trevor Cummins and did a short athletics workshop with every class in the school.

Everyone was delighted to have a Cobh legend at the school, even though we were a little starstruck! Sonia even modelled the school hat, designed by Rang 6 (more info on this coming soon!).

It was a very exciting day and everyone had fun exercising with Sonia and Trevor.

A huge thanks to them both for sharing their time and expertise with us. We hope they will visit again soon!

First Holy Communion

Congratulations to Rang 3 who made their First Holy Communion last Saturday, October 9th, in St. Colman’s Cathedral. The boys and girls enjoyed a lovely ceremony by Fr. Tom, and great celebrations were had by all. Comhghairdeas libh go léir!
