Between now and the end of June we will be celebrating Wellness Wednesday in Conna NS. We know the academics are important but above all we value our mental health and the wellbeing of pupils and staff. You might catch us taking a stroll around the yard to chat to our friends or enjoying a treat in the staff room!
There was caws for concern this morning when a crow flew into Senior Infants. We had to get a crow-bar and some vel-crow to remove him…he must have thought he was in CAWlege!! Thankfully he returned to his pals safe and sound before the children arrived in.
We had a very egg-citing day in school today. The Easter Bunny came to visit with Easter eggs for everyone. He bounced in to every classroom. He told us he has been in quarantine for the past two weeks. Thanks to the Parents Association who sponsored him!!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all our wonderful families. We had a wonderful Teddy Bear Parade in the sunshine today. Some teddies were big, some were small, some were bald but all were welcome! Enjoy the day off school tomorrow. See you all on Thursday.

WE LOVE READING IN CONNA NS.
If you find all the emails, videos and Zoom calls too much then give yourself a break and just read to your child, especially if they are in the lower half of the school. If they are older, encourage them to read for 15/20 minutes every day. Let them see you reading, it’s the best way to spark their interest. They will do what you do, not what you say!
It is a great way to….
-Develop their vocabulary and language skills
….to name just a few.
We will post a few videos here each week of some of our favourite stories but there are so many out there!

Wishing everyone a peaceful and safe Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Conna National School. Here is a little message from all the boys and girls.
We are very sorry you can’t come and visit us this year. Here is a little look around the school at some of the beautiful art the kids have been busy with.
Not long until the Toy Show on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. The goodie bags have arrived in school!! We will be giving them out to the kids tomorrow.
A massive thank you to the Parents Association for organising this delicious treat and fundraiser. Thanks to our wonderful parents for their support. Enjoy the treats everyone!
Way back in September fourth, fifth and sixth class entered Panini’s Official Premier League Adrenalyn XL 2020/2021 Trading Cards – Classroom Challenge Competition. The pupils had to design a winners trophy for the event of their choice. Ms Casey and Ms Nagle sent the entries off digitally with everyone hoping they had done enough to win the top prize- E1000 for the school, E50 for the pupil and a football shirt of their choice.
We got the wonderful news this morning that Casper Didek, in 6th class, had won the top prize in the Republic of Ireland. We are all extremely proud of this amazing achievement. His wonderful art trophy shows how talented Casper is. We suspect this is not the last prize Casper will win for his art work. He has a bright future ahead of him. There were big celebrations in school today. What a great start to November!!!
WELL DONE CASPER!!!!
Thanks to everyone for the huge effort that went into all the costumes and face paint today. We had lots of fun and games in school and also raised lots of money for a great cause, Pieta House. In total we raised a whopping E435 so far. Have a fantastic break. We look forward to seeing everyone back rested and refreshed in November.
Our school has achieved the SFI Discover Science and Maths Award for the 2019/2020 academic year. We will receive the plaque of STEM shortly. Well done to all the students, staff and parents for their very hard work both in school and at home during the lockdown. The school provided evidence of children’s engagement with STEM in the following areas:
Here is some feedback on our Log of Evidence:
Well done – it was a pleasure to assess your submission for this Plaque award. Your LOG presented evidence clearly explained and illustrated of all the activities you list in the application. Your observations on the experiments show that the skills of Estimation, Prediction and Measuring are being developed. I was particularly impressed with your pupil led demonstrations on the relationship between nose and taste, the elephant toothpaste, climate change PP – all very interesting and designed by learners themselves. The work you did at home during the lockdown also shows great independence. You also managed a very worthwhile Showcase despite the closure. Congratulations on achieving your award – keep up the good work and maybe consider applying for the Badge of Excellence next year
We miss the quick chat at the gate or the catch up in the yard with our parents and guardians. Instead you can now contact each teacher on their personal school email if you have any queries or problems.

Be The Best That You Can Be.
Virtual Sports Week
The Summer 2020 Target Table is designed to engage children in collecting their own data and seeing if they can improve
(with practice!) over the summer of 2020, on dates of their choice. The children could choose what aspects of their own sporting ability they would like to improve or perhaps pick a variety of tasks from a proposed list to practice throughout the summer. Follow the link for more information.
Virtual Sports Week
Have you ever measured your reaction time? There’s an easy way to test reaction times using just a ruler.
Reaction time is the time taken for a person to respond to a stimulus. For example if you touch something very cold, there is a slight delay between you touching it and moving your hand away, because it takes time for the information to travel from your hand, to your brain where it is processed and then a response started. Follow the link below to find out how to test your reaction time.
Virtual Sports Week
Design and make your own crazy golf course, either indoors or outdoors. Use whatever you have available. Get the whole family involved. Here is some information to help you.

The aim of the E puzzle is to reverse the positions of the Green and Red counters in the bold grid.
There are rules of course to make it a challenge:
*There is no passing or jumping.
*Only one piece at a time can be in the same square.
You can use counters, coins, buttons anything you like.
If you would like a new game to play then why not try air hockey. You can play it indoors or outdoors. Use old bowls, plant pots, tins or anything else you can think of to hit with. A beanbag or pair of socks will do as a puck. Use some pieces of wood, a broom handle or rolled up towels as the sides.
If you have ever fancied yourself as a secret agent you should practice your code breaking skills. Here is a website with lots of information and activities. http://www.cimt.org.uk/resources/codes/index.htm
If you were inspired by the Nautical School yesterday then try a seashell collage. Glue your shells to some wood and then paint with some watered down paint. You could stick to ocean colours or use a rainbow theme. Alternatively you could paint some shells with old nail varnish. Add glitter or stickers. Varnish with clear nail varnish or glue.

- PIG is a game for 2 to 6 players.
- Players take turns with a die.
- On a player’s turn he/she can roll a die as many times as they like.
- If a roll is a 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6, the player adds that many points to their score for the turn.
- A player may choose to end their turn at any time and “bank” their points.
- If a player rolls a 1, they lose all their unbanked points and their turn is over.
Find more information here. https://www.mathsweek.ie/2017/puzzles/pig-game-for-primary-schools

They must try reach 20 themselves but also prevent their opponent from reaching 20. Extend to 40 for older children.
Maths challenge-Chalk activities
There are lots of maths activities that you can do with chalk. Hopscotch is a great activity to reinforce number order for younger kids. Drawing geometric designs and mazes are challenging fun for older kids.
This is a great challenge for children and adults of all ages. Try not to lead your child to the answer, as frustrating as it may be. Let them puzzle over it and see if they can figure it out.
This is a great activity to help children learn their 2D and 3D shapes. It’s the same as the headband game but with shapes. How many questions will you use to guess the mystery shape?

Maths Challenge- 3 in a Row
A mathematical twist on the game BINGO, where participants practice their maths skills of counting, addition and subtraction.
Why not have a party for a pet or a teddy if nobody in your house has a birthday this month. We celebrated our cat turning 15. We had to write out party invites, make a birthday card, decorate banners, bake a cake and arrange the (teddy) guests in order of size and colour. We also had to spring clean downstairs before our guests arrived, I still can’t believe I got away with that one! We had a disco and read her a story. We also practiced giving compliments and being grateful. Lots of learning and fun to be had.
Wonderful magic squares! These are great for children of all ages. You can make them more complex for older or more skilled children.

The classic puzzle of getting the farmer across the river with the animals and grain without the animals eating the grain or each other! There is a further extension for older kids involving the members from U2 crossing a bridge to get to their concert on time. Definitely worth a look.
Try drawing your favourite toys by placing them on a sheet of paper and casting a shadow on them with either the sun (fingers crossed!) or a torch. All you have to do is draw around them and then colour in. Can you make your picture bigger or smaller by changing the angle of the light or the position of the toy?
Today’s challenge is for older kids. It’s called A Triangle with a Difference. Its available here https://www.mathsweek.ie/2019/maths-at-home-activities/#activity15triangle.
