We were busy using our spelling skills in Room 5 today playing Bananagrams!
4th Class in Room 13 had a wonderful time learning about Ireland and Dublin in 1911 with author, Sarah Webb. Sarah quizzed us on what life was like for children in 1911 and then read an extract from her beautiful book “The Little Bee Charmer of Henrietta Street” for us. We really liked how this story is based in Rathmines and around the city. Thank you to Rathmines Library for organising this for us!

We were busy in the computer room working on Spellings For Me this week.
The spellings are getting more challenging but we are really enjoying using the programme!
We were learning about report writing. We all chose 3 Olympic sports that feature in the Summer Olympic games and we had to write a report on them. We displayed them together on the notice boards at the front of the school.
It was great to learn so much about so many new sports!
We are reading George’s Marvellous Medicine. The children got to create their own Marvellous Medicine in class.
We learnt all about the European Union in Room 13. As part of this topic, each of us researched for and put together a project on an EU country. We presented our projects to our pods and learnt so much from one another as each of us were assigned a different country. The EU was an interesting topic to learn about and we loved finding out about different European cultures through our own research and through the research of others.
