Second Class

We have been very busy in second class the past few weeks. We have been preparing for the Christmas show as well as our visit to the airport for carol singing. We visited Pairc Uí Chaoimh for the Sciath na Scol final. We have been learning about fractions in maths and winter as gaeilge. We also used LEGO bricks to do experiments for Science Week 2023.

Purple Class

The purple class have been very busy in the last few weeks learning all about winter. We have been on nature walks and enjoyed playing on frosty mornings. We have also started preparing for Christmas with lots of arts and crafts and preparing for our Christmas concert.

Happy Retirement to Postman Paul

A massive thank you to our postman Paul who is retiring today. We would like to wish him all the best for a fantastic retirement and thank him for the great work he has done for Walterstown National School over the years. He will be greatly missed!

Aqua Class

The aqua class were doing Christmas art. They were revising their phonics and making phonics posters. They were preparing for the Late Late Toyshow and visited Cookery Cottage where they made pizza and cupcakes!

Christmas Artwork

The pupils in 6th class have been busy preparing for Christmas. They have created some beautiful artwork which will be hung up in our school hall in time for our Christmas concert!

Sciath na Scol

Well done to our fantastic pupils who played so well in Sciath na Scol in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Friday and also to all the pupils, staff and parents who cheered them on and showed them such great support!

Science Week 2023

Plenty of experiments took place around the school during Science Week 2023. The pupils made lemon volcanos, explored absorbency and colour mixing, investigated static electricity and observed how plants drink water. They experimented with skittles to learn how sugar dissolves in hot water and even played a Buzz Game. Well done to all the boys and girls who thoroughly enjoyed their week as scientists!
