Budding Artists in Balrothery

Children were asked to draw a picture of what Balbriggan means to them. They drew a variety of pictures from buildings they like to drawings of the beach. These children received prizes from Balbriggan Enterprise . Well done.

Marathon runners 2015

Mr Callaghan inspired the children in 6th class to run the last mile of the Dublin marathon. It was a wonderful experience. The children were coached by Mr Callaghan and Fingal Sports Council. Their fitness level certainly improved.

Mr Callaghan ran the 26 miles of the marathon then ran back to meet us and then ran a further mile with the children. That's dedication!

Report Writing 2015

Report writing :

Each class teacher has been teaching the children how to write a report. Areport must answer the following questions:

Who, what, where, when and why. A report uses descriptive language and is factual. Here are some samples. The children will read their report at the next assembly.

Maths Week

The children in Balrothery had great fun during maths week. They took part in maths trails and carried out problem solving activities. The older children helped the younger children to solve the maths questions on the trails.

We used 2 colours to colour in a patterned tile, stuck it onto card and cut out the tile into 9 pieces in order to rearrange it into as many different patterns possible. (Like tessellations or tangrams ).
