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.

How many counties could you name?

Writing for an audience in Room 15

We were learning about narrative writing in Room 15 and decided to write fractured fairy tales for our friends in 2nd class.

It was great fun to come up with the ideas and to write our stories but we really enjoyed sharing them with our friends in 2nd class.

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!

The Gards Horse unit visit St. Louis SPS

We were so lucky to have the Garda Horse Unit visit our school this week.

It was great to meet the horses and pet them as well as ask the Garda some questions about the horses.

We also got a meet a Garda that uses a bike. He spoke to us about being in the bike unit and showed us some of his Garda equipment.

It was a great day!
