Seó Faisean le seomra a haon

The boys and girls in Room 1 were celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge this year with a fun Seó Faisean.

All of the other pupils in the school came out to the yard and listened to all the new gaeilge words and watched Room 1 strut their stuff!

Well done!

Paired reading between Room 17 and Room 12

In Room 17 we read with expression, an awareness of punctuation and we do our best to get into role as characters in a story when reading dialogue.

 

We modeled our reading skills to Room 12 and listened to them read aloud. We were able to help them with things such as pausing at a comma or a full stop or sounding excited when reading before an exclamation mark!

 

Everyone really enjoyed this activity and we all learned from it 😊

Celebrating World Book Day in Room 1

The boys and girls in Room 1 dressed up as their favourite character in a book this week.

They then described the character and the plot of the book. Some pupils just wanted to describe their favourite book too.

It was a super day!

 

Room 12 – Having a blast at the Science Blast

Room 12 attended Science Blast in the RDS with their project ‘How to create an erupting volcano’. It was an insightful and fun day out!

3rd classes meet an author!

This week some of the 3rd classes were lucky enough to meet Shane Hegarty, author of the Darkmouth and Boot series. Over the past few weeks we’ve been reading his book about a lost robot named Boot. We learned some great tips about writing and we had a chance to ask questions and share some of our ideas for robot inventions!

IRFU open training session 2020

Room 1 were lucky enough to go along to Energia park today and see the Irish Senior Rugby team and the Irish under 20’s men training.

It was great seeing them all and how hard they train. We even got to meet some of them once they were finished!

It was a super day!

Bee seed bombs in Room 13

As part of the action to achieve our 5th green flag for biodiversity, we are looking at ways to encourage life in our school. Ms Ivers kindly came in and taught us about the importance of bees and the ways different countries are helping them. Using clay, soil and seeds we created bee seed bombs which is perfect for pollinators. We can’t wait until the weather is drier to put these into some grassy/wild areas!

Learning new skills in Room 13

We are really enjoying having the students in from De la Salle school teaching us different sports. So far we have done rugby skills, football and tag rugby.

Pancake Tuesday in Room 13

We were so lucky that Ms Stone (expert pancake maker) came into our class to show us how to make the perfect pancake. To make the batter you need flour, milk and eggs. We all got the chance to flip the pancakes. Did you know the world’s largest pancake is bigger than 15m in diameter?!!!

Pop art in Room 1

Room 1 were learning about Roy Liechtenstein and his pop art movement in art with Ms. Dennedy.

Look at these cool pop art inspired 3-D pieces!
