Room 20 Tree Fact Files

As part of ‘Science Week’, Room 20 completed a Tree Fact File. We first read about and discussed in class the many different trees that can be found in Ireland. We each then chose a tree to research as part of homework for the week. We began by drawing our tree and a close up of its leaves. After that we investigated the types of leaves, seeds and fruits on each tree. Finally we explored the internet, spoke to our grandparents and looked through books to find interesting facts about our chosen tree. The Hawthorn Tree was a favourable tree as we have recently finished reading ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ by Marita Conlon McKenna.

Science Week in Room 1

For Science week, the students in Room 1 explored how to make a paper bridge stronger by investigating how forces act on objects. They had fun designing a bridge that would take the heaviest weight!

LEGO Workshop in First Class

Last week, Sinéad from Young Engineers came to the school to run a LEGO workshop with all of the first classes. The children worked in pairs to make a washing machine and attached a motor to make it spin around. Some children also made motorised cars with the LEGO. Everyone focused really well and had great fun exploring how to assemble the LEGO to create their masterpieces.

Fighting Words in Room 20

On Wednesday the 7th of November, Room 20 participated in a ‘Fighting Words’ workshop in Dublin City. With the help of an author and an illustrator, we wrote our very own story titled ‘The Flying Banana’. Nearly all the staff at ‘Fighting Words’ work there as volunteers, and it was really fun to watch our ideas coming to life with their guidance. As a class we wrote the first part of the story together. This was then printed and we were allowed to bring them back to school to finish off our story.

The Christmas Shoebox Appeal

As a school we decided to participate in the “Christmas Shoebox Appeal”. All of Sixth class became involved. Our motives were driven by the fact that hundreds of poor vulnerable children would be getting a Christmas gift. We saw the Christmas Shoebox Appeal  video, seeing all those children’s faces light up with joy, as they saw their gift. We hope to bring the same joy to other children this Christmas. All we want from the shoe box appeal is to bring joy to an otherwise sad or vulnerable child and that they have an amazing Christmas.
