I.C.B stands for Inchicore Children’s Broadcasting. We are a group of children from 3rd to 6th class in Inchicore National School and Our Lady of Lourdes National school who have teamed up to create our own Children’s Broadcasting Station. We will be making and sharing programmes with each other and our community for the next year. Our aims are to share news and events, get to know each other and our community better, change the world and most importantly, have fun.

Here’s a video we made to tell everyone about I.C.B

Inchicore Children's Broadcasting is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and facilitated by Helen Flanagan.

Spring is all about new life and new beginnings.

The children in 1st Class began exploring signs of Spring and the beautiful flowers that begin to bloom this time of year.

We have planted our very own plants to take care of over the coming weeks. The children enjoyed learning about the process of planting and are eager to see them sprout!

Both First Classes have been extremely busy making fantastic creations with artist Liz from Creativity in the Classroom.

First, the children created their very own stop-motion videos where they had to design and make their very own creatures and backgrounds for their stop-motion videos.

Then the children made relief prints out of foam and old mouse pads and ink.

Take a look below at the wonderful creations!

We had the loveliest ending to a brilliant week celebrating the Irish culture.

We had Sean nós dancing and hurling during the week and it ended with a celebration of Irish language with our Ceolchoirm. 

The children have been speaking so much irish all week and it's wonderful to hear.

We hope everyone enjoys St Patricks Day 🍀

Dia daoibh (dee-a-ye-v)

This week we celebrate all things Irish. We are highlighting the importance of speaking our Native language, we will be participating in old style Irish dancing (Sean nós). Some of our teachers play Camogie, and they will give us all an introduction into the game of Hurling.

On Thursday we will have a celebration of Ireland by dressing in Green and performing in a small concert, one for Juniors and one for senior classes. Keep an eye on class pages to see some video clips of their performances.

We had a very busy October in 5th class. We went rock climbing at the Dublin rock climbing centre. The class loved it and are eager for another trip there. 6th class organised a maths quiz for maths week which the class enjoyed taking part in. We also done a fun experiment in science where we looked a magnetism. We created ghosts and used magnets to make them float in the air. We also created Halloween characters in art using old lollipop sticks. To end the month and celebrate Halloween we got dressed up and went on our annual Halloween walk.

We spent a while getting use to being one big class. We played ice breaker games to get to know each other better. We learnt about volcanoes in Geography. We built volcanoes in art. In science we learnt about the reaction between an alkaline (baking soda) and an acid (vinegar). We used our volcanoes to test this reaction which created a volcanic eruption. We performed the experiment in front of the school in assembly.
