October is always a very action packed month in school with  Autumn and Halloween Activities.

The children practised their cutting skills while making their own “Lollipop Lions” for the letter “l” in English

During the month the children enjoyed learning about Autumn in S.E.S.E.  and made their own “Mini Fall Books” and Autumnal Trees.

As well as this, the children went on an Autumn Scavenger Hunt in the Discovery Park.

They identified all the leaves, seeds and nuts of Autumn on their worksheet and as a treat they enjoyed a short visit to the Elf Village too!

As a Friday treat the children enjoyed decorating their own cupcake with chocolate drops and mini marshmallows!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Art the children created their own bright eyed and bushy tailed squirrels using rolled up crepe paper!

October would not be the same without all the Halloween preparations!

The children made their own Halloween Masks and Pumpkins…

and they dressed up in Fantastic Halloween Costumes!!

The children designed their own cover for a  “Spooky Spell Book” in English

Finally in Science the children made their own Ghost Blowers using straws in support of  work covered on air movement.

Well done once again to all the children on a great month’s work!

Happy Halloween and enjoy your well deserved Mid Term Break 🙂

The Rugby World Cup is now almost over and 4th, 5th and 6th class did lots of work about this topic. We wrote acrostic poems, wrote up information about the game of rugby and the countries taking part in it.

One lucky boy found the “Fáinne”!

October with 4th, 5th & 6th Class

Date posted: 4th November 2014 | Category Blog, Geography, Hallow'een, Science, Senior Classroom, Visual Arts |

October has flown by and the boys and girls in the senior room have been busy completing lots of work in different areas. 6th class spent some time cooking delicious potato wedges for us all.

Well done boys, they were yummy! (Thanks to Mrs Dooley for all her help!)

In geography and science we spent a very interesting afternoon exploring rocks and fossils with Una Halpin. We discovered lots of new information about rocks and soils in the local area and had fun finding different fossils in the rocks.

In art we worked on colour, mixing our own secondary colours of purple, orange and green. We etched designs into the paint and then made these colourful owls.

On Friday we had a dress up day, we also had a very nice treat when some spooky cupcakes were very kindly sent in by Majella, they disappeared very quickly and were delicious!!!

October has once again been a busy month! We started off the month making Floppy Scarecrows in small groups, in response to a poem called “The Floppy Floppy Scarecrow” in English!

In SPHE, the children have been learning all about themselves. They made their own identity card with their own photograph, handprint and fingerprint!

In the SESE subject areas, the children enjoyed participating in a hands-on workshop based on Rocks and Soil with the heritage expert,  Una Halpin. During the workshop, the children explored various rocks and also the types of rocks we have around the school environment.

The children also enjoyed all of the preparations for Halloween from eating the “bairín breac” in Gaeilge…

dressing up in their Halloween costumes …

 playing a Halloween Maths Game called “Spider Drive” with their partner…

and making their own “Marvellous Monsters”.

Finally in Art, the children made their own “Patterned Pumpkins” using printing wands.

    Didn’t they do a great job!

Happy Halloween Everybody!!
