We had a great time working with clay and making our pinch pots to hold all our Easter eggs. First we moulded the clay, once it was dry we painted them, then we decorated our pinch pots. We are very happy with how they turned out. We even found some eggs and chicks in our pots!
We learned about the life cycle of a chicken . We even got to watch a video of a little chick hatching out of its egg, meeting its mother for the first time. So we decided to make our own little chicks .
We had great fun making creations with chalk outside. We made so many things such as boats, pirates, sharks, houses, rabbits even a disco floor. We even had time to show some of our dance moves on the disco floor.
We engaged in a number of Easter activities and had a wonderful time. Happy Easter to all.
We had a wonderful time this week making clay pots for Easter. We originally worked with play dough and tried out various ways to create our pots. We then concentrated on the task in hand producing amazing pieces.
When the pots were dry we painted them. Finally we glazed them, adding sprinkles to make them extra special. We are very proud of our creations!
The boys and girls of sixth class used their construction and STEM skills in the designing and building of mazes for marbles. They worked in groups to create these structures using a variety of materials.
Ms McAllister's 2nd class having been learning all about "Birds of Ireland". Have a look at some of our amazing projects.
Last Friday, Mr. Cunningham introduced us to Go Lego. We were arranged into groups and each group had a quantity surveyor, two builders and two engineers. Each group received an Ipad and a Go Lego box. We followed the instructions on the Go Lego app to make our model and then using bluetooth we were able to control our models. We really enjoyed the activity and used great team work to solve problems as they arouse. It was clear to see that many of us will be great engineers and quantity surveyors in the future.
