Master Chefs in Le Chéile

This week we are cooking up a storm. So far we made pancakes and Mat Man fruit faces.

Let’s Get Messy!

Daisy’s Birthday

Yet another June birthday in Le Chéile! For Daisy’s birthday we went on a mystery tour to Togher Park! We had a picnic and even had icecreams!

When we came back we had a fabulous party for the birthday girl.

Then we went out to the garden to play some messy games!

School Sports Day

The girls in 6th class did an incredible job of organising our school sports day. We competed in an egg and spoon race, sprinting, relays, 3 legged race, obstacle course, water games and the parachute. It was a terrific day. What better way to end it that with a visit from the ice cream van!

Orange and Carrot salad

We love Hazel’s yummy recipe! This week it was an orange and carrot salad. Delicious!

Maria’s Birthday

Happy Birthday Maria! We got food delivered form our friends in Super Valu. Isn’t that the most beautiful cake you have ever seen!

Sarah’s Birthday!

Happy Birthday Sarah! We had so much fun celebrating. We all had beautiful hairstyles for the occasion, styled in our very own Le Chéile Beauty Salon. Eleanor surprised us with a pinata 🙂

Ballincollig Regional Park

This Friday is Sarah’s birthday. This morning we came up with a plan to celebrate. We had the fantastic idea of going on a trip to Ballincollig Regional Park on the Garda Bus! Luckily, Garda Kate’s friends Garda Danielle and Garda David were available to take us. They arrived with not one but 2 busses! We walked through the fairy trail, had a picnic and played in the playground.

On the way back to school bus no. 2 picked up pizzas from Apache. What better way to end a day than a pizza party on the picnic benches.


We were back out for more gardening today. We have been looking after our seedlings in the classroom for the last few weeks. Today we planted them in the Fairy Garden. We watered the rest of the plants and added some decorations. Watch this Space!

Garda and Princess Party

Today we had a Zoom call with Ciara from RSA. We talked about all of the rules of the road. Of course, we knew them all already from our Walk on Wednesday. She taught us the 3 B’s to be safe in the car; Backseat, Booster and Belt On!

You might notice that we are dressed up as Princesses and Gardaí in those photos. That is because we joined the Infants in their disco outside! They even kindly shared a pizza with us.


Today we had a great surprise in the magic box. PANCAKES!!!! We all took turns to put on our favourite toppings: strawberries, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, bananas and of course, sprinkles. They were delicious!

Green Fingers


We practiced our gluing with strips of paper. We kept them in straight lines. Then we cut them out into lots of different shapes.

Pizza Picnic

Today was our turn to have a picnic on our fabulous new benches. We spotted Liam painting them recently and couldn’t wait to have out turn. We had pizza and treats, it was a lovely surprise.

Spring is Here

We had so much fun doing our Spring Hunt Checklist. We found lots of signs of spring all around our school garden.

Easter Egg Hunt

Hazel’s tricky Easter Bunny stole all her chocolate! Lucky for us, he hid them in our Fairy Garden. We got lots of chocolate to share with our families.

World Down Syndrome Day

On Thursday, 25th March we took part in the Lots of Socks Campaign in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland. Molly had a very busy job, collecting donations from all the classes. Her arms were very tired by the end of it, the box was full of generous donations. Thanks to everyone for getting involved.

Breakfast Club

Before Christmas we spent a lot of time pouring lentils and water to prepare ourselves to make our own bowl of cereal. We had so much fun making Rice Krispies, not a drop of milk was spilled!


Last week we made Frozen cupcakes. We mixed the ingredients and decorated them so beautifully. Check out our finished product.

St. Patrick’s Day

We had so much fun celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone came to school dressed head to toe in GREEN

We did Art, made funny potato heads, danced with Avril and learned the letter ‘s’. Of course, no celebration would be complete without a Zoom call to Hazel. However, I think she got a little bit mixed up with her occasions and turned up dressed as a snowman!

March Birthdays

March is a busy month in Le Chéile with lots of birthdays to celebrate. First, we had a party for Martyna. Hazel was super excited to get dressed up for the party, but she lost one of her favourite shoes! Oh no. She sent the boys and girls of Le Chéile on a scavenger hunt.

Our first task was to follow the red buttons

Along the way we were bouncing balls, balancing bean bags and rolling hoops. We even found treats!

Guess who had stolen the shoe! Bean Mhic was hiding it in her room. Well done everyone, we solved the mystery.


We can’t forget the cake! Happy Birthday Martyna

In March it is also Hazel’s birthday 🙂  SHE surprised US with McDonald’s! We weren’t too impressed when she started throwing smelly socks at us, but we quickly forgave her when we saw the Happy Meals at the bottom of the clothes basket. Thank you Hazel!

Happy Birthday Hazel

Welcome Back

We are all so delighted to be back together at school, young and not so young. It was a long time not to see our friends, but it was lovely to spend time with our families and we are all back to school safe and sound. Teacher Eimear, Eleanor and Hazel would like to express a sincere thank you to all of the children and their families who welcomed us to their homes virtually during lockdown. We have so many stories of time spent with our families.


It was tough to keep up with these busy families, here is just a little taste of how we spent the summer. We were making fairy gardens, baking cookies, making pizzas, barbecues galore, swimming in the back garden, camping in Garretstown, Wicklow, Waterford, Tipperary, Dingle and Mizen Head. There was surfing in Garretstown, cycling all over the country, chasing Fungi in Dingle, horse riding in Belfast, getting buried in the sand, swimming at the beach. That is only a taste of our summer.

Sooooooooo HERE WE GO


SCHOOL YEAR 2020/2021

Balancing Act.

We practice our OT balancing down in Lima lawn.


Happy  Birthday Muireann

Making Shapes

We’re keeping with the tradition of looking after our stomachs. We made shapes using vegetable fingers. Squares and triangles were the order of the day.

Safe Cycling 

Thanks to Liam for fixing our bikes raising saddles, pumping tyres, etc.

Hot Chocolate

As the winter mornings get colder it is lovely to have a surprise of hot chocolate when you come in from yard.


Life Skills

In Rang Le Cheile we like our outings to the shops, restaurants, cinema. trips with Garda Kate, trips on the train . But sadly covid 19 has curtailed a lot of our outings, so while we are waiting to get back to normal we are ploughing on with life skills in school. We  love Toasty Tuesday where our children get their own knife, plate and butter. It is fantastic to see how their skill of buttering has come on with practice.

As you can see from the photos below Teacher Eimear has become very untidy spilling lentils everywhere. It is the children’s job to brush them up into a square marked out on the floor.


Talented Thursday

A fantastic display of Hula Hoop, followed by a wonderful dance display of Shoe the Donkey.

Bird Feeder

Now that winter has arrived it is time to look after all the beautiful birds that visit our school gardens. We got a new bird feeder. Thanks so much to Liam for helping us to put it up.

Autumn to Winter

We had such a lovely day, we started with Halloween games and songs. The highlight of the day was a video call from Garda Kate. We had a virtual visit from the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.Then we took part in the Halloween Parade. We met dinosaurs ,elephants spooky witches and scary ghost. Back to class for a cool party.

A Party for Denis

We decided to throw a surprise party for Denis (one of our taxi drivers) who has retired. Denis has brought children to and from Le Chéile for the past 5 years, never missing a day. Denis has been a Gentleman to deal with and will be missed by adults and children alike.

The gang had a look at the Fairy Garden and decided to brighten it up. They made some decorations. Eleanor and Muireann did a bit of DIY on the table for the party. Denis was delighted with all the cards the children made.


DIY was called for and Eleanor and Muireann jumped to action.

We are forever blowing bubbles.



We are busy working on the skill of pouring.  We are filling water and lentils up to a line in a container. Our next step will be pouring cereal and milk to certain lines in a bowl.
