The Children in Ms McAllister's worked very hard on their projects -Why is Marine Litter Harmful to the Environment.
Have a look at some of the wonderful work from the children in Ms McAllister's 2nd class . We learned all about the Chinese New year - The year of the dog. We made lanterns and Chinese Symbols in Art. We wrote all about the Chinese New Year.
We have been busy in room 4. We made pancakes on Pancake Tuesday. We also were learning about the effects of heat on different objects. Some things like chocolate melt when heated and some things like bread burn when heated. We melted chocolate buttons and we toasted bread. Then we tasted the delicious toast. We were also busy composing music. We can tap rhythms and make songs using different notes.
Here in 5th class we have been doing a lot of research into marine pollution and it's impact on marine life. Some of the facts we learned were astonishing!
We paid particular attention to the length of time it takes for various forms of litter to decompose once it enters the sea - did you know that it can take up to 400 years for a plastic bottle to decompose?!
We formed project groups and used various tools in order to carry out our research - iPads, books, newspaper articles, etc.
We put a lot of hard work into our projects - have a look at the finished products!
As part of the Green flag renewal we held a Day of Action in the foyer. Parents, teachers and pupils were invited to see all our wonderful projects based on the theme 'Global Citizenship- Marine Environments.' We hope to raise the awareness of the importance of protecting our marine life from litter and waste.
We did amazing projects on marine letter and the effect it has on marine life and the environment. We learned lots of interesting facts, like where marine litter comes from and looked at ways to stop it from getting worse. Our school action day took place today for the renewal of our green flag, where got to look at and ask questions about other classes projects. Our school motto is: 'Don't throw litter in the sea, it's bad for the fish and me.'
Look who dropped in to accompany and inspire our current musicians! It was lovely to see some familiar faces and hear their amazing music . Well done to all involved and keep on playing!
6th class explored onomatopoeia this week and loved the fun sounds and words we discovered! We had looked at Pop Art by Andy Warhol last month and further explored the style he used in his work and other examples used in advertisements and comics .
We loved this art project and are very proud of our work! Take a look!
For Valentine's Day in 6th class, we made candle holders for the special people in our lives. We wrote them a Cinquain poem to show them how much we care about them. We hope you all had a lovely day!
We really enjoyed Pancake Tuesday in 6th class. A big thank you to Ms. Regan who made our lovely pancakes! We added our delicious toppings before gobbling them up!

We made the pancake mixture in the classroom and then we went to staff room with Ms. Regan to cook our pancakes. When we returned to the classroom we decorated our pancakes with lots of lovely toppings. We had great fun and really enjoyed our pancakes. Here are some pictures of us busy at work:
3rd Class have been busy learning how to write a letter. We were each assigned a secret person in the class and we had to write a letter to them and send it in the post. We were learning how to address envelopes earlier in the year also. We placed our stamps on the top right-hand corner and posted them in the post box outside school! We had a lot of fun and can't wait to receive our letter at home it will be a big surprise!!
