Here are a selection of pictures of the children in 3rd and 4th class participating in a number of activities before the Christmas holidays. These include art lessons, project work using iPads, our Christmas post delivery, Christmas jumper day and our last day of school where we enjoyed some hot chocolate and a movie. We are looking forward to the break, to spending time with our loved ones and of course, the arrival of Santa!
In 3rd and 4th class we were working on the the theme of 'houses' as part of our history and geography. We had great fun combining our art lesson with some engineering work to create our very own lollipop houses. Once the houses were constructed we painted them in the colours of our choice. We were delighted with the results!
Have a look at the story we made with Veronika about extinct Irish animals!
We have a lot of work at the moment - we are preparing 2nd Class for their First Holy Communion, so we were visiting the church to have a practice today. On the way out, we had a look at the lovely bluebells growing in the flowerbed.
We are also investigating recycling in our SESE lessons, so we went for a walk to look at some of the local recycling bins. We saw ones for clothes, glass and cans.
Have a listen to our body percussion thunderstorm. We were talking about An Aimsir in Gaeilge, and we wanted to make our own sounds!
We have a lovely Irish poem (ask us to say it for you some time!) and it mentions directions. Today we had a look at the directions on a compass. North is towards the front of the school, South is towards the secondary school, West is towards the Boys School and East is towards our neighbour's house!
