Happy Valentine's Day!
To celebrate Valentine's Day we thoroughly enjoyed working with Acrylic paints and canvases for the first time to paint beautiful designs to give to our loved ones.

A huge thank you to all our parents and pupils once again for baking such delicious treats for our class Cake Sale, it was a great success. A big thank you to Fiona also for making such a beautiful showstopper of a Raffle Cake!
The First Snowfall in Beaumont
Although it may not have happened over the Christmas period, we were still very excited to see our school covered in a blanket of snow in January. We had such great fun playing in the snow and making some wonderful memories with our friends.
Our New Year's Mannequin
Angelika, Mia and Doireann made a great team in January and started the New Year by designing a beautiful New Year's themed outfit for Belle. Great work girls!
Christmas in Beaumont
We really got into the festive spirit this year and wanted to share with you some of the lovely moments that took place from Santa's visit to Beaumont and the annual 5th Class Carol singing. Well done to Mandy, Abigail and Tori too for their wonderful Christmas creation that adorned our class mannequin "Jingle-Belle".
We recently created some beautiful Winter artwork using sugar paper and chalk pastels.
Our Class Mannequin for the Month of November
Well done to Anna, Fiona and Elisha for working so well together to create a lovely Thanksgiving themed outfit for the month of November! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Our Lego Workshop
On Your Marks...
Sciath na Scol Final
A huge congratulations to our incredible Beaumont Girls team who brought us to the final of the Sciath na Scol in Páirc Uí Rinn this year. We thoroughly enjoyed supporting the girls on the day and although victory wasn't ours this time, we couldn't have been more proud of our team. In the words of the world's greatest supporters..."Let's Go Beaumont, Let's Go!!!"
Seasonal Change in Our Beautiful School Garden
We love helping out whenever we can in our school garden. We are also so grateful to have such lovely garden ladies who help and educate us on what is to be done at different times of the year.
Book Buddies at Halloween
Every Friday we really look forward to visiting the Infant Classrooms to read to our little book buddies, share stories and even sometimes listen as they read to us. To mark Halloween however, we decided to dress up in costumes and take our book buddies out to play in the garden for some tricks and treats. It was so much fun!
Our Class Mannequin
Throughout the school year, the girls will work together in groups of three to design themed outfits for our class mannequin. These designs will be created out of recycled and recyclable materials and will be based on the current month of the year. The aim is to develop skills of co-operation and communication, to raise environmental awareness and above all else to have lots and lots of fun! For the first month, Chloe F., Abbie and Kadiatou worked wonderfully together to create a Halloween themed ensemble for the month of October and this was the final spooktastic piece. Well done girls!
Our Hootiful Owl Artwork
As part of our Science lesson on Materials, pupils worked in groups of five to examine a range of materials that would be suitable to build a sustainable birdhouse. Throughout the investigation, pupils discovered and applied the meaning of words such as organic, inorganic, insulation, natural, man-made and water-resistant among many others. The budding scientists then creatively designed their own birdhouses in groups using the variety of materials and fibres provided, such as milk cartons, lollipop sticks, felt paper, moss, leaves and twigs.
