Maths Week activities in Room 9

Room 9 had great fun celebrating Maths Week by playing interactive games on the new iPads! We can’t wait to use the iPads throughout the year for lots of different activities.

Lines and angles in Room 9

Room 9 were busy measuring angles in their classroom. We used masking tape on the tables to create various angles and then measured these – this was a really fun way to do this lesson! We then created our own in our copies and got our classmates to measure these.

6th class learning about women who changed the world

6th classes visitors an exhibition in the library on the theme of ‘Irish woman who changed the World’.
It was an excellent trip and we learned a lot about Irish woman and the amazing stories of their lives.
It was an awe inspiring exhibition and we came away with a number of new heroes.

Peer tutoring in Room 12

Room 12 got some help with their reading from 6th class. It was a great help.

Science Week in Room 9

Room 9 were very busy for Science Week! We hosted a Science Fair for 4th, 5th & 6th classes showing them some very interesting experiments. We also had a visit from Rachel’s mum, Emma who is a professor in Science in Trinity College! We learned about the eye and experimented with some dry ice too – it was really good fun!

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!

Room 9 – History of Rathmines trail

6th class in Room 9 have been busying learning about the history of Rathmines and are currently working on some projects. Last week, we went on a history trail of Rathmines. We discovered lots of history in our locality and learned lots of new information about the church, the Swan River, the library, the town hall, St. Mary’s, the old Kodak building, the Post Office, Belgrave Park and even the houses along Williams Park! Our last stop of the trail was in Belgrave Park and we were lucky enough to enjoy a break and some fun in the autumn leaves after our busy morning!
