The boys and girls in Room 15 had great fun dressing up for Halloween!
Christian (Room 15) and Iulian (Room 11) were showing some of the boys and girls their Latin dancing skills.
Room 15 then went and learned some moves from Christian.
Well done boys! It was great fun and you are super dancers!
We had great fun in Room 8 dressing up for Halloween!
Check out our haunted houses! We made these for Halloween. Spoooooky!
We also used pointillism to create these bat pictures!
In Room 15 we made super hero masks.
We decorated them with lots of colours and crafts.
What do you think of our masks and our super heroes?
Room 15 were learning all about transpiration in science this week.
We discussed what transpiration is and how water travels up through a plant and onto the petals. That water is then evaporated up by the sun.
To show this, we conducted an experiment using flowers and coloured water.
The coloured water travelled up through the flower and you can see the colour change in the petals.
We were able to prove transpiration.
Room 11 had lots of fun in science class this week. We are learning about heat so we decided to conduct an experiment. We were wondering what would happen when we applied heat to chocolate.
We learned all about chocolate changing from a solid to a liquid and we really enjoyed eating them too!
On Thursday Room 8 went on a nature walk. We went to Harold’s Cross Park and we were on a mission. We were on an Autumn Hunt! We searched for leaves changing colour, conkers, berries and lots lots more. It was great fun! We even had time for a quick play in the playground!
The boys and girls in 5th class are really enjoying learning all about tag rugby with Ken from Leinster Rugby.
It is great fun to learn from Ken and with our friends.
During maths week we have been doing lots of fun maths based activities.
On Thursday we went to the hall and Mr. Mooney and Mr. Coghlan were there to present their maths fair to us. They had lots of 5th and 6h class helpers. We got to use all our maths skills to practice shape, pattern, capacity, time and measure weight.
It was really a lot of fun!
