1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th class are working on a special recital for our Christmas show! We have been working so hard in our classrooms and together to learn some Christmas songs for the event! Mr. Healy’s class are really helping Ms. Grant’s class with learning the new songs! We are practicing really hard! We are sorry though to the parents for all of the practicing at home, it’s only another six weeks until the show! Enjoy the meme!
1st and 2nd class were very busy this week. They were learning about the world of science!
On Tuesday, we tested out a range of markers to see which were the best to make a rainbow! We discovered the cheapest markers were the best!
On Wednesday, we tried to build the tallest free standing tower. We were only allowed one piece of paper, glue and a scissors. We all worked in groups and had so much fun testing our ideas! See the pictures for our wonderful creations!
On Thursday, we created lava lamps!! We used food colouring, a plastic bottle, water, vegetable oil and an alka seltzer tablet! We learned that oil is lighter than water but when the water and the tablet produce bubbles it will rise through the oil!!
For our last day of Science week, we were treated to a fantastic event in the library! We went to see the show “Volcanoes are Oresome!” We learnt about volcanoes and all about different types of rocks and fossils! We even got to taste salt stone crystals!
We have leant so much this week all about science!
Our 1st class, 2nd class, 5th class, and 6th class have been taking part in a Lego hour once a week since September. Each week they were given a theme that linked with what they were working on in the classroom and they had to create something using the Lego based on that theme!
Miss Fitzgerald and Miss Grant were amazed and proud of what their classes produced and they thought it would be a good idea to show the rest of the school their hard work. The children were given the theme of Halloween and they had to create a haunted house/house to show the school. They worked very hard in their groups and were delighted at assembly on Friday to show their creations!
Each group had a chance to explain what they made and answer a few questions based on it. The 5th and 6th class were very patient and helpful with the 1st and 2nd class as they wrote their script and helped them to read it.
It was a fantastic few weeks of creativity and fun!
On Friday the 27th of October, 1st class and 2nd class had a very busy day!
Our Lego fun came to an end this term. We were very proud to display our haunted houses and other creations at assembly! We really had so much fun with the 5th class and 6th class as we built a range of wonderful things.
We tried something different today for maths! We played games, from counting eggs to guessing whether a number is higher or lower. It was a great way to practice our adding, counting, estimating and predicting skills.
We were also treated to some time in the local playground, it was so much fun playing together on the swings, see-saw and the zip-line! We cannot wait to go back.
We have had a very busy first term in 1st and 2nd class. We spent time getting to know each other! We got to draw portraits of each other. We are very lucky and get to spend time in the morning solving puzzles and playing games, sometimes the 6th class joins us!
Every Thursday 1st class is joined by the 6th class and the 2nd class goes up to the 5th class and we take part in a Lego challenge! Everybody has so much fun and we have seen such fantastic creations!
Ms. Grant helped us to prepare for our first time holding an assembly and it was great! We worked so hard and learned a friendship poem and drew pictures of all our friends.
We also had to get ready for our first annual Multi-Culture Day! We created a massive jigsaw that had our all countries’ flags in it. We have 18 different cultures in our classroom. It was such an enjoyable day and we cannot wait for the next one.
The whole school took part in our sponsored walk which was to raise money for our new Interactive Board.
Last week was maths week and we had so much fun. We got to try a tricky puzzle every morning and we also joined two webinars for the occasion. We really enjoyed the Table Quiz webinar, over 4,000 different classrooms took part. We hope we win a prize.
Ms. Grant is really brave and gave us each a tin whistle! We are learning so much and practicing really hard. We know our parents are really loving listening to us!
This week has been just as busy as we got to start GAA coaching. We had so much fun with our new coaches.
A very enjoyable sports day took place on the campus this week. Each class participated in three races; sprints, potato and spoon race and sack race. There was lots of laughing and falling down. We then had a parents race and a spontaneous teachers race which was very enjoyable for all… A huge thank you to Ms Gow for organising the events on the day. Also, a thank you to Ms Buggie and her wellbeing committee who organised a bouncy castle and an ice-cream van. Take a look at some of the shots taken on the day.
