Rep of Ireland vs Wales

On Tuesday the 11th of September, the 5th and 6th classes went to a match in Eamonn Deacy Park.  Some 6th class children were picked to be ball boys, mascots and flag people. I was a ball boy. The match was Rep of Ireland v Wales. It was a good day for a match as it was sunny and dry. The match ended 2-0 to Ireland. Aaron Connolly scored and I got my jacket signed by him                                                                                                                                                                    When we were back at school the people who had jobs got prizes. It was fun!

There are around 1510 active volcanoes in the world! They reach from seven hundred to one thousand and two hundred degrees. Volcanoes  normally erupt for short periods of time  and then remain dormant for a long time . During dormant periods the lava  bubbles and  boils in a lava lake  in the crater or it may solidify.


Mount Vesuvius is one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes. It is located  in southern Italy on the gulf of Naples. It is the only volcano on the European mainland that has erupted during the last century and it is still active. It has erupted over fifty times in the last two thousand years. The eruption in seventy nine AD destroyed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. This eruption spewed 1.5 million tonnes of lava per second.  Pompeii is visited  by over 2.6 million people per year. People actually live on the rim of mountains how crazy is that!

Spiders By Julia in 6th class Ms.Farrelly

Spiders are really interesting for us in many different ways.

Spiders look to some people scary,weird, interesting and cute but what do we really know about them?

Spiders have eight legs and eight eyes in rows of four at the front. Their legs are hollow and contain fluid and muscles. Spiders also have two body parts. Spiders also have two palps one on each side of the fangs in front of the legs.

All spiders have many things in common but every spider love to eat insects. It’s their favorite food.

A lot of spiders live in trees and bushes.

Spiders are mini-beasts and carnivores.

The largest spider in the world is the Goliath tarantula.

How do spider mate

Spiders are cannibals and will eat each other, so mating can be a risky business. When a male spider wishes to mate, he will often bring a present to the female its a dead insect wrapped up very well in silk strands. While the female is busy unwrapping the gift and eating the insect, the male mates with her. If the female finished eating the insect and the mating is not completed the female spider can eat the male spider.

The extra protein gives the female the strength to lay dozens of eggs. Some species carry their eggs around in an egg sac and others leave the eggs in the  silken nest.
