Room 1’s Halloween monster party

Room 1 were so busy in art class recently. They designed their monsters, created a character profile, sculpted them out of clay, painted and glossed them!

The look so great!

It is a Monster Mash!

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,

Clean up in Room 11!

Room 11 have been learning about the harmful effects of littering on our planet. Dropping a water bottle in Rathmines could end up harming the ecosystem in the oceans!

We decided to get our gloves on and grab some rubbish bags and clean up Rathmines Green. We also wrote letters to our Taoiseach expressing our concerns.
