Middle Classroom

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd class pupils are taught by Ms. Dennehy. We love to do art and craft, play sports and sing songs. Our favourite activity is baking! Here we are baking oatmeal raisin cookies. Everyone loves to help out mixing, weighing and of course eating them!

During the months of January and February, the children in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Class were very busy completing projects on various topics.  They put a huge amount of work and research into these and included the following things as specified in the brief: contents page, introduction, bibliography and conclusion.  When they were completed, they had to stand up in front of the class and present their work to the other children and answer lots of questions.  They did a wonderful job and learned lots of new facts!

The 4th Class boys completed their projects on Dublin Zoo, Africa and The Vikings!

The boys in 3rd Class completed their projects on Italy, Greek Gods and Goddesses, The Bronze Age, Rugby and Manchester United.

The girls in 3rd Class completed their projects on Ballet, The Guitar, Dogs, Dolphins, Horses and Shoes Throughout the Years!

The children in 2nd Class completed their projects on a poster and they did a great job too!  Their topics included Owls, Silage, Chickens, Zebras, Malamute Dogs, The T-Rex, Snow and Toys Throughout the Years!

Well done to all the children on their hard work and efforts!  Each child received a certificate and Easter treat as a special reward!

On February 28th we celebrated Shrove Tuesday here at Wandesforde. The senior pupils made pancakes for the entire school.

They were busy on the day handing out plates of pancakes and going around with different toppings to everyone.

It was lovely to have the opportunity to sit down as a whole school and enjoy eating together.

We’re back and ready for 2017!

Date posted: 20th February 2017 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, History, Middle Classroom, Visual Arts |

A warm welcome back to everyone from 2nd, 3rd and 4th Class!  We have had a busy January and February so far!  To start off the new year, we wrote about what we did over the Christmas holidays and discussed our new year’s resolutions…

In English, the 4th class boys were reading a recipe about “Peppermint Creams”.  We had a go at making these very simple, but delicious,  sweets!  Everyone tried one and agreed that they were very tasty!

In History, we learned all about St. Brendan the Navigator.  We enjoyed writing a diary extract of a day in the life of a navigator like St. Brendan!

We also studied “Games and Pastimes” in History.  Did you know that children still play games that our Great-Grandparents played many years ago?  The children were then given a challenge: to create a simple game of their own, using recyclable things.  They had to present their game to the other children in the class and give them the opportunity to play that game.  They did a great job!

In Visual Arts, we looked at the life of Claude Monet, his work and the techniques he used when he painted his many famous paintings!  We then created our very own Monet inspired paintings!

We also created pictures called “Many Hands Make Light Work” using our hands and various designs and paper!

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we made candle holders and cards for our loved ones!

We also learned how to weave circularly on a paper plate!

We also wrote about what Love means to us all and some children wrote acrostic poems!

Well done boys and girls on all your hard work over the past few weeks!

Green Schools Activities

Date posted: 10th February 2017 | Category Blog, Green Flag, Junior Classroom, Middle Classroom, Our Work on Display, Senior Classroom |


The Green Schools Committee have been busy over the last few weeks. Our theme for our 5th flag is Biodiversity. As part of our work on this theme we counted the birds on our school grounds to see which are most common.

We also created a Habitat Map of our school grounds which shows all the landmarks on our grounds as well as things of interest such as birds’ nests and litter hot spots.

 

Please take a look at our Green Schools Noticeboard the next time you’re in!
