Learning from an explorer in Room 17

Room 17 really enjoyed their trip to Rathmines Library where they learned all about Paul Strzelecki, the Polish explorer who helped many Irish children during the Great Famine. What an informative morning we had!

 

Room 1 visit the Little Museum of Dublin

The boys and girls in Room 1 were so lucky to be able to visit the Little Museum of Dublin on St. Stephen’s Green today.

Our tour guide Mark was so fun and told us so many interesting facts from the past about our capital city, Dublin.

We saw lots of artifacts that have been donated to the museum by Dublin people.

We got to visit the U2 room and learn all about this famous Dublin band

We then got to play in St. Stephens Green playground and we even supported the farmers in their protest at St. Stephen’s Green.

It was a super day!

Working on our presenting skills in Room 1

We were learning about different counties in Ireland and each made a PowerPoint presentation about a different county.

We then used our oral language skills to present our PowerPoints to our classmates.

Well done everyone – we learned lots of new facts about Ireland and its counties!

Science Week in St. Louis

We all went to a cool science show this week. We learned all about different scientific experiments and how different chemicals work!

It was great fun – Thanks to Mr. Coghlan for organising it for the whole school!

Room 17 project presentations

The boys and girls in Room 17 were so busy creating their native american projects. Then they got into different committees and organised a presentation day for some other classes.

Room 1 were lucky enough to get an invite and they listened intently to all the cool facts and looked at the wonderful presentations.

We learned so much and then we had to vote for our favourite project.

Thanks so much to Room 17 for the invitation and for all the hard work that you put in!
