Room 17 decided to put on their own version of “Twas The Night Before Christmas” and would like to share the joy and spread the Christmas cheer to the entire school community.
These are pictures of room 17’s Japanese Kabuki masks for Hallowe’en.
The pupils in Room 17 were enjoying tag rugby lessons with Leinster Rugby.
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 😊
We in Room 17 worked hard for the past month on group projects about Mexico. Every person in each group had a different role and each group researched and based their project on a different aspect of Mexico.
We presented our projects to Room 1, who were a wonderful audience. They asked some great questions and gave us some wonderful feedback. We even sampled some Mexican foods including guacamole and salsa!
Everyone really enjoyed the presentations and it was great to celebrate all of the hard work we put in 😊
Today was a busy day in Room 17. Our Art Projects were due and we invited many classes to view the houses and buildings we constructed using recyclable waste. They were very impressed with our hard work and we are really looking forward to arranging them to form a Christmas Village.
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 17 are working very creatively to construct a Christmas Village using cardboard boxes and other materials from the recycling bin! Stay tuned!
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!
