Our pottery in fourth class looks amazing after Tamaru Joshi (Meera's Mum) fire blasted and glazed them with Aditi and Meera for our garden's Totem Pole
We had great fun marbling in art in 3rd class. We got shaving foam and paint and mixed them together to create a magical effect. Each group picked their own colours and once everyone had a chance to print the page onto the mixture, everyone's finished product was completely different!
When everyone in our group had finished, then the fun happened!!! Squishing and squashing the crazy coloured foam!!! It was so cool! When the paint dried, we cut out lovely sea creaures which are on display outside our room.
We were learning all about The Wooden Horse of Troy in history, so we decided to create our own wooden horse as part of our art projects. We were so creative with our constructions and we put a lot of work into them. Look at all of the recyclable materials we used! It was great fun working in our groups.
Finally, all of our hard work, the horses were ready for Troy!
We had a great day in Clare yesterday for our school tour. We visited Bunratty Castle, The Planet in Ennis for bowling and Craggaunowen. We learned a lot and had fun in the playground at Bunratty and at bowling.
Look at our "identity boxes". In 6th class we gathered pieces of our personal belongings and items to represent interests in ours own lives.
Our two third classes went on school tour to Eilemental adventure centre last week. We had a very busy time but it was great fun
We had a fantastic day with our Grandparents and special loved ones on Friday last, where the children performed lovely medleys in the foyer (thanks also to our wonderful school band for warming up the crowd!). We then proceeded to have prayers, poems, stories of olden days and great fun in our classrooms, followed by a well-deserved cuppa and treat provided by our fantastic Parents' Association. It was a day that will provide many fond memories for all!
An Taisce, together with our Green Schools Committee, organised for our pupils to have a bike maintenance workshop. Scott did a great job fixing minor problems with our bikes like our brakes, wheels.and saddles..
Our 6th classes recently enjoyed a fantastic day out on a Garda Cycle. They cycled, accompanied by our local community Gardaí, all around Galway city. We began by cycling to Dangan and got to see a Garda van, the ARU vehicle and an ambulance. We looked at all the equipment and got to sit into the back of the van and play the sirens! After we cycled through NUIG and canals to visit Mill Street Garda station. One member of our class was nominated to be the Garda and another was nominated to be the prisoner. We re-enacted an arrest and got to see a holding cell at the station. Later we walked to the Courthouse and viewed one of the court rooms. We saw where the judge, solicitors, assistant judge and press sit. We eventually cycled home after a fantastic day! We are very grateful to the local Gardaí for organising such an enjoyable day out!
We had great fun on our Seashore Safari with Joanna from the Marine Institute in Mr McDonagh's and Mrs Regan's fourh class :)
Friday the 3rd of June, was our Annual Multicultural Day. There were over 25 different countries represented and we feel very proud to have celebrated this special day and the diversity in our school. It was a fantastic day full of splendor and colour - there was a big variety of food and cooking, national dress, music, projects, photos, artwork and lots more. The stands were very impressive and everyone really enjoyed the festivities. We would like to thank all of the parents and children who made such a huge effort to make this day so special and wonderful.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!
Room 3 & 4 went on a walk to Dangan. We had a picnic, ate ice cream and played games. It was great fun.
We are growing lots of vegetables in Mr McDonagh's Fourth Class in our classroom garden with the Parent's Association. It's great to see the vegetables grow and grow :)
