Science fair fun

Room 15 went to 3 different science fairs this week to celebrate science week.

Ms. O’ Shea’s class (Room 17), Ms. Doherty’s class (Room 9) and Mr. Coghlan’s class (Room 5) all hosted wonderful, interesting science fairs in their rooms.

We were asked some tricky scientific questions and were shown some amazing experiments on our visits.

Thanks so much for all the hard work from all the classes and teachers.

Science is so fun!

De Le Salle soccer with 4th class

The boys and girls in 4th class are very lucky as some past pupils of St. Louis came back to our school from De Le Salle secondary school and were teaching them soccer skills.

It was so much fun and we are looking forward to next week already!

Listening to 6th class in Room 12

The 6th class pupils were busy writing stories and then they went to Room 12 and shared them with the 2nd class pupils.

It was so interesting to hear their stories.

 

Shoe box appeal in Room 17

For the shoe box appeal our class brought in 6 shoe boxes in the first 9 days! The shoe box appeal is to help the kids who are living in bad conditions. To make their life happier, in the shoe box you can put toys, things to wash, clothes, teddies, socks, sunglasses and lots more.

Parachutes in Room 17

We made parachutes for science. They were made from different materials to test gravity. The cardboard parachute flew the best. We used playdough people to weigh it down at it was a very windy day!

Free writing in Room 17

Every week we let the class of room 17 do free writing. Some children are writing poems, stories, comic books, a series of a story with a friend and drawing pictures to add to their stories. This week we had two girls, Charlie and Misheel, read their story. They wrote a scary story and they read it to the class. We really enjoyed it!

Arts and crafts in Room 17

We made pictures from scrap paper, pom poms, wool string, sequins, wooden sticks and feathers. Then we coloured them in neatly (if we also drew on the page). Then we glued the materials on to the pictures.

Leaf printing in Room 17

For art we divided a page into 4 or 6 boxes and we painted them in different colours. Then we let them dry and we painted the leaves. After we painted the leaves we pressed them on the page and we let them dry on the page for about 20 seconds and we took them off the page. This left behind a print of each leaf.

6th class graduation

The 6th class of 2018 graduated from St. Louis.

It was a lovely ceremony to send them off into secondary school.

Well done to all the pupils and best of luck in the future.
