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.

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!

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.
