The children in Room 13 went on a mission to make a difference this week. We went to Sandymount strand to partake in a beach clean and ocean plastics workshop. We learned so much about plastic, and plastic alternatives and had so much fun. We even found a mermaid’s purse! Thank you to @flossiebeachcl1 for such an enjoyable and informative workshop!
Garda Ciara and Garda Brendan came to Room 5 today to discuss road safety with us. We spoke about car safety and bike safety too.
Then we took part in a court case. There was a jury, judge, witness, detective and accused. We discussed the case and questioned the witness and accused. It was great to learn how a court case works!
Over the past weeks, Room 13 have been learning about different traditions and legends associated with Christmas around the world. We’ve looked at how different countries and different faiths celebrate Christmas. One tradition we learned about, which originated in Germany, was Christingle.
Here’s what we learned about what the different parts of Christingle represent:
- The orange is round like the world.
- The candle symbolises the light of God.
- The red ribbon goes all around the ‘world’ and is a symbol of Jesus’ love.
- The four sticks point in all directions and symbolise North, South, East and West – they also represent the four seasons.
- The sweets represent the creatures, animals and creations here on earth.
Making friendship posters in Room 3!
Wow look at these great posters celebrating friendship!
Recognising team work and friendship in Room 12 at the beginning of the year.
Room 5 were thinking of different ways to show kindness around the school.
We decided to thank Pat, our caretaker by helping him out with a leaf clean up in the Millennium Playground!
Thanks for all you do for us Pat and thanks for being our friend!
