Incredible Edibles School of the Week! 


We have been selected as school of the week because of our great efforts! 🙂

Check us out:

School of the Week Certificate_St. Felim’s National School_Cavan



Incredible Edibles 

We are taking part in the nation wide competition Incredible Edibles. Here is a list of a few things we have done so far.

  • Examined the ingredients of some of our favourite foods. 

  • Learned the difference between unprocessed and processed foods.

  • Visited a local agricultural college in Ballyhaise to meet the new born lambs, and learn about farming sheep and lambs. 

  • Planted vegetables and fruits in class.

  • Cleaned out some of the garden plots so that we can plant our vegetables and fruits outside.


    Meeting some of the new lambs.

    The lambs and sheep began to come over to us.
    Listening and learning about sheep.

    After we cleaned out one planting bed.

    The Vicious Vikings 

  • We learned all about Viking culture including where they came from, their homes, food, roles in the family, war, longships, games and some of their beliefs. That is not all, we also built replicas of their homes, round towers they attacked and longships.

    A Viking home, people and animals would sleep in a house.
    A round tower where monks would hide when Vikings attacked.
    A longship, they had flat bottoms to make it easy to sail up rivers to attack.
    A Viking shield and axe.


    Christmas Cards for the elderly 

  • We drew, coloured, highlighted and wrote messages for over 100 cards with the other 4th classes for the people staying in the John Sullivan Home and College View Nursing Home. We delivered the cards to College View Nursing Home and spent some time chatting with the residents.
