Cobh Art Competition

The boys and girls in W.N.S. recently took part in Cobh Art Competition. Using their imaginations they drew a picture themed “Cobh at Christmas Time”.

This competition was a great opportunity for the children to work on their artistic skills and we were really impressed with their drawings, use of colour and attention to detail.

St. Colman’s Cathedral, Belvelly Castle and the “Deck of Cards” were just some of the places that featured in the childrens’ artwork.

Congratulations to all the boys and girls and especially to Ella Kennedy, 3rd class, who won in the 7-8 year old category!

Second Class 2022/2023

It has been a busy first term for Second Class this year. Since returning from midterm break, they have been learning all about data in maths. They walked around the school collecting information and making tally charts. They have been working hard learning about magnets, reading on the school iPads, doing winter chalk art and playing hockey for P.E.

This week Second Class presented their first ever school projects! It was very exciting to research all about animals and every child spoke with confidence when showing-off their hard work. The class heard a lot of interesting facts about a variety of animals.

Attention has now turned to learning songs for the upcoming Christmas Concert. Everyone is looking forward to having a live audience this year and cannot wait to take to the stage in December!

Science Week 2022

We had a fantastic week investigating, experimenting and exploring Science in W.N.S. Amazing explorations took place around the school from magnets, electricity, floating and sinking, dissolving colours, frozen ice cube animals to Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions.

4th and 5th class took part in a Woodlands Workshop with a lady from Green Schools and Science Week. Well done everyone!
