Today we did some lovely winter painting in third class.We are very proud of our paintings
We have been very fortunate that Matt from Connacht Rugby has come in over the past few weeks to teach us some rugby skills. Here are some pictures of us in action:
Third class made Christmas decorations. First we made salt dough. We cut the dough into shapes and baked it. Then we painted our decorations. We had them on our trees at home during the christmas holidays
We had great fun performing our Christmas play, doing related art work and winter posters.
We made gingerbread biscuits and they were delicious!
We thoroughly enjoyed decorating and assembling our boxes and filling them with the gift of love for our families. These were inspired by a poem called The Present. We hope you enjoyed receiving them!
Wow what a fantastic performance from all the boys and girls in 4th class,We loved taking part in Lights Camel Action.Happy Christmas everyone.
Children in 5th class made lovely Christmas Trees with their parents :) Happy Christmas from everyone in Mr McDonagh's class.
This year our performance was all about Christmas from a 3rd Class pupil's perspective! We talked about Christmas around the world in our native countries and also other different religious celebrations such as Eid and New Year in Korea. We talked about what Christmas was like for our Granny and Grandads long ago and also what Christmas means to us personally as we all celebrate it differently. We performed some tradition seasonal songs and recited poetry we composed. We also told a few jokes! We hope everyone enjoyed our performance. Nollaig Shona daoibh!
We learned all about houses like different types of houses such as detached, semi-detached, bungalows, apartments and terraced houses etc. We then learned about the different parts of the house. In art we all got to design our own house.
Today we performed our Christmas play in Ms. Lane's 2nd class. It was called 'A Christmas Toy Story'. We have put a lot of work into it over the past few weeks, learning our lines, learning songs and actions and getting our costumes ready. We put on an amazing performance today for our families and friends. We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas!
We have been busy getting creative in Art the past couple of weeks! We have been drawing, painting, printing and constructing. Check out our Christmas inspired art work this year!
We had great fun during Science Week in room 16 Ms McNicholas' class
We learned so many interesting facts and watched amazing experiments.We predicted many outcomes.Well done !
This week we got our Active Schools Flag. On Monday 11th the Active School inspector visited our school. His name was Liam O'hAolaoin . We showed him how the pitch usually works. He was very impressed with what we do as an Active School. He was delighted to award us another Active Schools Flag. He gave us some helpful tips and we hope we can use them in the future. We are always looking for ways to improve. This is our second Active Schools Flag and will last us the next four years. We are very proud to receive another flag
We had great fun performing various experiments for Science Week.
We have been learning about volcanoes and hibernation in 2nd class. We researched at home and presented our work to the class. Have a look at our AMAZING projects!
We have been learning all about electricity and sound this week in 3rd class. We carried out an experiment to see how a circuit works and we also learned how a switch works. We learned that static electricity doesn't travel through wires and we did an experiment to prove this. We learned about how sound travels and we carried out experiments to help us see how sound feels, how it looks and we made our own 'weird' sounds using straws, plastic and balloons. Have a look at us experimenting in class!
We have been trying out many Science experiments recently including : The balloon that can't be inflated, The floating ball, Dancing raisins, Launching a balloon rocket and Erupting volcanoes. Some of us even brought in our own experiments to try out. Have a look at our pictures and videos below.
This week we have been carrying out very impressive science experiments in our class. We have seen some very interesting things involving water pressure, air pressure, pepper and milk, lava lamps, magnets, water blobs, sinking and floating oranges and coke blowing up balloons. We also saw a diet coke explosion using mentos and how skittles turn water into a rainbow. Here are some pictures of our experiments in action
We have been learning all about various animals and their habitats recently. We researched an animal/sea creature of our choice at home and had fun presenting our findings to the class! Have a look at our finished projects!
