Happy Chinese New Year from Room 15

2016 is the year of the monkey.

Pupils in 5th class were celebrating by making traditional Chinese lanterns.

Learning all about Mexico in 5th class

The boys and girls in Room 14&15 were learning all about Mexico in Geography.

We learned about lots of Mexican traditions and art work and even made our own art too including sombreros, Ojo de dios and day of the dead masks.

We had a Mexican fiesta too to celebrate all things Mexican in the classrooms and got to sample some Mexican foods and dance to Mexican music.

It was great fun!


Computer room fun in Room 1

Room 1 were very busy researching some Irish garden birds today. Some boys and girls chose the robin, others learned about the wren. We discovered lots of interesting facts about where they nest and what they like to eat. We’re already looking forward to our next trip to the computer room!

Celebrating St. Brigid’s Day in Room 1

St. Brigid is a patron saint of Ireland. We read the story of St. Brigid on Monday and made these beautiful St. Brigid’s crosses to celebrate her feast day.
