Today, Mrs Regan's class did some baking. We baked buns and then we iced them. we decorated the buns with sprinkles. It was great fun. The buns looked and smelled delicious. We brought them home to eat!
Our class took part in a competition to design hurleys for the 16 international teams taking part in the Aerlingus Hurling Festival, Camán for the Craic. We are proud to announce that one of our class members, Natalija Savic, designed a winning hurley and was given great treatment in Pearse Stadium on Saturday 21st September for the culmination of the event.
We had fun drawing our self-portraits!
We drew ourselves using a technique called 'Continuous Line Drawing'
Bhí muid ag cleachtadh 'Na Trí Muc'- bain muid taitneamh as!
We are getting the hang of renaming in maths- it can be tricky!
From Kandinsky to our Symmetrical art work...and just look at our Self Portraits!
Camán for the Craic is on this weekend in Pearse Stadium and to welcome the teams, children in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes designed hurleys for the different countries taking part in the festival. We submitted some really good designs and we were delighted to hear that four children in our school were picked as prize winners. Congratulations to Alison Walsh who designed the hurl for Europe (non Irish), Luke Flynn who designed the hurl for The Barley House Wolves, Olga Michon who designed the hurl for Milwauke and Natalija Savic who designed the hurl for Canada. Our four prizewinners will go to Pearse Stadium on Saturday to present the hurl they designed to each of their teams. As part of their prize they will receive a replica of the hurl they made along with a goody bag. Well done Alison, Luke, Olga and Natalija. Here are some photographs that a photographer took of us designing our hurls:
We were thrilled when the Mobile Farm came to our school today. We were so lucky that the farmers came with their big animals, poultry and pets.
We looked at the big animals in their pens.
Then we looked at the small animals - firstly the ducks and their ducklings, then the hens and chicks and finally the rabbits.
Everyone loved the ducklings. We noticed their webbed feet. They were extremely soft. Sometimes we were afraid they might wriggle out of our hands!
Then we looked at the hen family - the hen, cockerel and chicks. It was interesting to see how they were similar to the duck family but also different.
We were delighted that we were allowed take the rabbits out of their hutch. They were very soft like the ducklings. We discovered how easy it is to keep rabbits as pets.
