French

This year we were fortunate to have been chosen for the second year in a row to participate in the Primary Languages Sampler- Languages Connect. Over 500 schools nationwide have been taking part and we were very lucky to be chosen again this year.

Over the past few months our wonderful French tutor Audrey Parent has had 8 sessions with the children helping them to develop their conversation skills, vocabulary and appreciation of the language.

The children received stickers, language passports and vocabulary packs for free as part of the programme which is funded by the Department of Education and facilitated by Post Primary Languages Ireland, as a key objective of the Languages Connect.

Science Week

Last week, we celebrated Science week at Knockainey National School. We explored various strands across the Science Curriculum throughout all the classrooms. It was a week that was enjoyed by all.

Take a look at our pictures below to see some of the experiments from the week!

Apple Trees

Last year, children from each class collected ‘Save the Bees’ cards as part of SuperValu’s campaign in association with the National Biodiversity Data Centre and the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan. 

As a reward for filling our Save the Bees chart, our school received four apple trees! Our classes worked together to plant the trees and we look forward to watching them grow. 

A big thank you to Niall for all of his help!

Funky Hat Day

Today in Knockainey N.S., we celebrated our unique selves by wearing funky hats.

We all have individual attributes, strengths and weaknesses and we feel this is very important to highlight.

We must say a huge thanks to the children, their parents and the staff for their huge effort for Funky Hat Day 2022.
