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!
