Middle Classroom

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd class pupils are taught by Mrs. Peavoy. 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!

Autumn Fun in 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class!

September has been a busy month for all the children in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class.  In RE we created our own talent tree, displaying all the great things we can do now that we are a year older!

We wrote about our Summer holidays, which are now a distant memory!

In English we read the novel “The Twits” by Roald Dahl and wrote book reports, with lots of children scoring it 10 out of 10!  We also made our own Mr. Twits with lots of food stuck in his beard!

We also drew pictures of our impression of the “Roly-Poly Bird” in the story.  The work was very colourful!  Well done to Nathan and Robert who won a prize for their drawings!

 

In Art, we created “Autumn Wreaths” using the colours that are all around us at this time of year.

We also wrote acrostic Autumn poems….

We also created “Owls sitting on Branches” in our Autumn themed Art lesson…

In SPHE, we created a jigsaw, showing that we are all unique in our own way, but fit together as a great team, just like a jigsaw does!

In Science and Geography, we completed a litter survey of the school grounds and created a block graph of the results.

2nd class read about “The Story of Chocolate” in their readers.  Of course, we had to make the krispie buns in the recipe at the end of the story.  We all enjoyed making and eating them!

Well done on all your hard work boys and girls!

As part of work on our Green Schools theme of biodiversity the senior pupils placed a hedgehog house in our grounds. We hope some hedgehogs use it as a cosy home for the winter.

We also planted an Oak tree in our grounds for National Tree Day on October 5th.

May and June in the Middle Room!

Date posted: 21st June 2017 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, Geography, Middle Classroom, Science, Subjects, Visual Arts |

It has been a busy few weeks in 2nd , 3rd and 4th Class and the children have put in a great term’s work!  In English, we wrote about our sponsored cycle on the 10th June…

We studied a poem called “Monsters in Pyjamas” and looked at the verbs, adjectives and nouns in the poem.  The children had great fun creating their own colourful monsters!

The 3rd Class pupils wrote postcards to their friends….

In Geography and Science, we studied soil and learned about the various types in Ireland.  We learned that there is a mixture of clay and loam in Ireland.  We looked at a soil sample from our school garden and concluded that it was clay.  We felt the texture and measured the moisture in it too.  We also found a wriggly creature in it, the earthworm, which is the farmer’s friend!

In Geography, we studied animals of the rainforest.  Each child completed a mini project on an animal of their choice.  We learned lots about this beautiful natural resource, but also learned that it is in danger due to trees being cut down on a daily basis.

In Visual Arts, we drew pictures using pastels…

We created colourful Summer t-shirts!

We drew some pictures of everyday objects or still life…

We created cool characters going surfing!

As a fun activity, we made oreo and banana milkshakes to cool us all down in this hot weather!

We hope you all have a wonderful Summer break!  Well done to all the boys and girls on their hard work this year!

Easter has come round very fast and the children in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Class have been very busy over the past number of weeks!

In Gaeilge, we have been learning all about “An tEarrach” or Spring and wrote a story and learned a poem with lots of Spring flowers mentioned in it.  We also painted a giant Spring picture.

We also celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and made some lovely decorations.

We thoroughly enjoyed reading books at the book fair…

In English, we wrote some great book reports after reading many genres of books over the past few weeks…

The 3rd Class pupils wrote some animal riddles for their classmates!

In Visual Arts the children completed a “Mindful Colouring” activity and created some lovely Spring Flowers.

To celebrate Easter, we wrote Easter Acrostic Poems and created transparent eggs filled with lots of sparkling things!

We also learned about the Easter Story and retold it in our own words with great pictures…

The children also drew pictures for the Bishop’s Poster Competition, the theme being “Great Leaders – Past, Present and Future.”  Here are a few of the entries…

The children visited the Barnstorm Theatre at the end of March to see a play entitled “Monday’s Child.”  They thoroughly enjoyed it and wrote about the trip to the theatre in English.

To celebrate Mothering Sunday, we created cards, bookmarks and boxes of treats for the wonderful ladies in our lives!

Well done to all the children on a great month’s work!  We wish you all a very Happy Easter!  See you next month!
