Celebrating Maths Week in Room 1

During maths week 2019 we are doing lots of different maths activities.

We went to the computer room this week and worked on some interactive maths skills.

we played games about fractions, number and shape.

It was a great way to do our maths class!

Lines and angles in Room 9

Room 9 were busy measuring angles in their classroom. We used masking tape on the tables to create various angles and then measured these – this was a really fun way to do this lesson! We then created our own in our copies and got our classmates to measure these.

Maths Week trip for Room 1

Room ! were so lucky this week. we went to Dublin’s Marsh’s Library to attend a Lego Puzzles Maths Week activity day.

We worked together to try to solve the lego puzzles using out maths skills.

We even made it to the playground for a quick play!

Thanks so much to Mr. Coghlan for organising this trip for us.

Happy Maths Week 2019 everyone!

Kindness in Room 1

Sadhbh spent a long time at home preparing special personalised homemade Hallowe’en boxes for all of her classmates.

We really enjoyed them and thanks to Sadhbh for being so kind and generous!

 

September Newsletter by Room 17

We began Fifth Class in Room 17, just over a month ago, after a lovely Summer Break. We have been working really hard and have enjoyed our first month!

We really enjoyed Art, we explored different patterns and we painted some Autumnal Scenes. For PE, we started swimming and we will keep this up during October. For Science, we did two experiments exploring sound travel and insulation. We learned about the mountains, rivers and deserts of the world in Geography and mixed it with Art to make maps of the world. In English, we wrote Recounts of our Summer holidays and we are reading Charlotte’s Web. In History, we learned all about St. Louis in the past, we were shocked to find out that there was a fire before it was a school and that the old caretaker, Mr Cullen, lived up by the offices! We collected data in Maths to make bar charts and found out some interesting things about pupils in our school. We also began using Spellings for Me and enjoyed going to the computer room for testing.

This is some of our favourite work from the month, we hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. We are really looking forward to October, which begins with Friendship Fortnight!

Thanks for reading,

Getting ready for the Rugby World Cup in room 1

We are really excited in Room 1 about The 2019 Rugby World Cup.

It is being hosted by Japan. we all got to choose a team and learn lots of facts about that country.

We learned all about the countries physical features and their rugby jerseys.

We are looking forward to supporting Ireland too!

COME ON IRELAND!!!!!

Room 1 – Supporting The Dubs!!

The boys and girls in room 1 were busy preparing for the All Ireland Final by creating some wonderful Dublin art.

Hopefully there are some future Dublin GAA stars on the notice boards!

Making sweet music in Room 15

We learned a song called ‘Rocky Mountain’ and we composed our own music to go along with the song.

It was great to work together and also listen to each other perform.

Geography quiz in Room 15

We were revising on our counties of Ireland today in Room 15.

How many counties could you name?
