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.

X- Factor hits 2nd class

All four second classes have been talking turns hosting X-factor. It’s been great fun watching all the talent in second 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!

We decided to get our gloves on and grab some rubbish bags and clean up Rathmines Green. We also wrote letters to our Taoiseach expressing our concerns.

 

The Gards Horse unit visit St. Louis SPS

We were so lucky to have the Garda Horse Unit visit our school this week.

It was great to meet the horses and pet them as well as ask the Garda some questions about the horses.

We also got a meet a Garda that uses a bike. He spoke to us about being in the bike unit and showed us some of his Garda equipment.

It was a great day!

Room 11 ended the week with some fun with bubbles. We tried different ways to see how to make the biggest bubble!

Room 11 – dream houses

Room 11 have been discovering the different properties of various materials to decide which ones would suit our dream houses! We designed our dream houses before adding some materials to it. There were some whacky houses- would you like to live in an upside down house?

Learning about space in Room 11

Room 11 have been exploring the world of space and space travel. We wondered what food was like so we tried some space ice cream. It wasn’t cold and felt like styrofoam!
