Working on our presenting skills in Room 1

We were learning about different counties in Ireland and each made a PowerPoint presentation about a different county.

We then used our oral language skills to present our PowerPoints to our classmates.

Well done everyone – we learned lots of new facts about Ireland and its counties!

Science Week in St. Louis

We all went to a cool science show this week. We learned all about different scientific experiments and how different chemicals work!

It was great fun – Thanks to Mr. Coghlan for organising it for the whole school!

Room 17 project presentations

The boys and girls in Room 17 were so busy creating their native american projects. Then they got into different committees and organised a presentation day for some other classes.

Room 1 were lucky enough to get an invite and they listened intently to all the cool facts and looked at the wonderful presentations.

We learned so much and then we had to vote for our favourite project.

Thanks so much to Room 17 for the invitation and for all the hard work that you put in!

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,
