P.E in the sun for Room 8

Room 8 had a lovely visit to Cathal Brugha Barracks for our PE lesson yesterday. We were lucky, the sun was shining and we all had a great time!

 

Learning about colours in Room 8

In art we have been learning about the colour wheel. We used cool and warm colours to create imaginative and colourful self portraits! Can you spot the resemblances?

First day in 4th class!

Room 8 were busy in their pods this week settling back into 4th class!

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!

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.

Paired reading in Room 1 & Room 8

The 5th class children in Room 1 and the 2nd class children in Room 8 joined together for paired reading. They had lots of fun reading to each other and being read to!

Maths competition in 2nd class

Maths competition between Room 8 and Room 12. It was a close match but Room 12 won by one point. Well done!
