Scientists in Room 7

Science Demos to rooms 12,and 5 . The experiments were about Elephant Toothpaste, Exploding Volcanoes and Magic Colours.

It was great fun and we learned so much!

Paired reading between Room 17 and Room 12

In Room 17 we read with expression, an awareness of punctuation and we do our best to get into role as characters in a story when reading dialogue.

 

We modeled our reading skills to Room 12 and listened to them read aloud. We were able to help them with things such as pausing at a comma or a full stop or sounding excited when reading before an exclamation mark!

 

Everyone really enjoyed this activity and we all learned from it 😊

Room 12 – Having a blast at the Science Blast

Room 12 attended Science Blast in the RDS with their project ‘How to create an erupting volcano’. It was an insightful and fun day out!

3rd classes meet an author!

This week some of the 3rd classes were lucky enough to meet Shane Hegarty, author of the Darkmouth and Boot series. Over the past few weeks we’ve been reading his book about a lost robot named Boot. We learned some great tips about writing and we had a chance to ask questions and share some of our ideas for robot inventions!

Comic Life in Room 12

Room 12 were busy making comics! We worked in pairs, using props from our classroom, to create comics on the iPads.
Check out our creative comics!

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!

 

2nd class school tour

Last Tuesday, second class went to Pine Forest up in the mountains. It was pouring rain but that didn’t stop us having lots of fun! We did lots of things including making a fish tea light holder out of clay and a monster bookmark.

Oral language in Room 12

Room 12 made ‘Chocolate Mug Cakes’ as part of an oral language class! We had lots of fun working in pairs to follow a recipe and eating our tasty treats.

Room 12’s got talent

Room 12 held their own talent show.

The acts were incredible!
