Room 23's visit to Clontarf Nursing Home

On Thursday the 13th of December, Room 23, Mr Kelly, Ms Steen, Ms O’Keeffe and I packed up the keyboard, clarinet, guitars and Santa hats and we jumped on a bus. We drove to Clontarf Nursing Home. When we got there, Rimas and I set up the keyboard and the stand and then the children from Room 23 got ready to perform for the residents. They read poems and sang songs accompanied by the wonderful Mr Kelly and fantastic Ms Steen on the keyboard. Mr Kelly sang ‘Oh Holy Night’ and ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’. After the performance, we had sweets, crisps and a drink. We spoke to the residents and talked to them about soccer teams and what school was like long ago. We got back on the bus and we sang the whole way back to school. It was a great day.

Ana played 'Christmas Bells' on the keyboard

Hugh played 'The First Nowell' on the keyboard

Room 27 Science Lesson

Ms. Moran’s Second Class did an amazing Science activity at school recently. We were very lucky to have Calum’s Mom and Dad come in to our class and show us some really interesting things about biology.

We chatted and discussed different parts of the eye and how we see.  We also talked about blindness and diseases which can affect eyesight. All of us got to feel what it would be like to be blind by wearing a mask over our eyes.

We looked at a monkey’s eye and a mouse’s eye.

We then got to dissect the eye of a cow!!  It was SO cool and interesting!

We looked at a mouse’s eye through a microscope too.

Lots of us want to be scientists when we grow up.

Comics in Room 17

In Room 17 we made comics, inspired by super heroes. Most groups started out ruling out the A3 pages in all shapes and sizes. Then we put our drawing into action. After the drawing, we coloured them in bright colours and then some outlined. In addition we added text. We tried to use words such as BOOM, POW, ZOOM, POOF and BANG. We all had a great time reading and admiring each other drawings.

Fractions in Room 24

Ms. Boland’s class have been learning all about fractions this week. Today, we had lots of extra fun in Maths, when Lucy brought in some lovely home baked cookies. We worked in groups and divided the cookies into halves, quarters, thirds, fifths and lots of other fractions. The best part – we got to eat the cookies! A memorable Maths lesson!

3rd Class Construction Project

Ms O’Reilly’s 3rd class had great fun designing and constructing well-known buildings in our locality as part of the Geography curriculum. We all put in a huge amount of work and we had great fun making our buildings as well as making a big mess!! How many of our buildings can you recognise?

SESE Projects in Room 25

Ms. de Barra's class have been learning about Ancient Greece. They made some fantastic board games about life in Ancient Greece. They brought the games to school for 'Ancient Greek' day. They had lots of fun playing each other’s games, dressing up as Greeks and even tasting some Greek Food.
