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!

A Short & Sweet June in the Middle Room!

Date posted: 23rd June 2015 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, Middle Classroom, School Outings, Visual Arts |

We are now officially on our Summer Holidays.  Although June is a short month, we did manage to get a few things done!

Following our great School Tour in May, we wrote about and drew pictures of our favourite part of the whole day!  Some children enjoyed the archery, others enjoyed the rock-climbing but the inflatables on the water were a huge hit!

We created our very own unique Summer Ice-Pops with amazing colours!

The children in 1st & 2nd looked at Mosaics and then created their own Dolphin Mosaics using various materials!

Well done to Alva in 3rd Class who won a prize for the Bishop’s Poster Competition.  The theme was “Journeys” and Alva drew a picture of Moses’s Mum visiting him each day by the river.  Well done Alva!

As part of our efforts to get our 4th Green Flag we are working on the theme of transport. With this in mind the Green Schools Committee organised an art competition for the whole school.

The Junior Room drew and coloured their favourite forms of transport while the Middle and Senior Rooms designed transport for the future.

May Fun in the Middle Room!

Date posted: 4th June 2015 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, Middle Classroom, Music, Visual Arts |

Now that May is gone and we are in the final weeks of the school year, why don’t you have a look at some of the work that the children in 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class have completed?!

In Music, we learned all about the various genres of Music.  We learned many new words such as classical, traditional, electronic and jazz.  As part of the curriculum, we are encouraged to listen to these genres and respond to them.  The children listened to a piece of Music called “Space Smurfs” and drew some pictures!

We also revised the song “Let’s go Fly a Kite” which we learned for the Funky Kids Show.  We designed our own kites to integrate Music with Visual Arts!

The children wrote about their thoughts and feelings of Summer.  Most of the children love this season…

We created Lighthouse Scenes with waves crashing against the rocks!

We also had the opportunity to print using corks and created beautiful vases of Summer flowers for you to enjoy!

Wandesforde is a Health Promoting School!

Date posted: 27th May 2015 | Category Blog, Class Work, Junior Classroom, Middle Classroom, Our Work on Display, Special Occasions, SPHE |

On Friday, 22nd May, we held our very first Health Promoting School Breakfast in Wandesforde National School!  This initiative promotes the health and well-being of pupils and staff in the shool.  The Health Promoting School committee consists of 9 pupils from Junior Infants to 6th Class, 1 teacher and 2 parents.  One of our ideas at our first meeting was to hold a breakfast morning in school.  This plan came to fruition last Friday when we all sat down to a very healthy breakfast of granola, fruit kebabs, sugar-free pancakes, porridge, smoothies and orange juice.  The children came to school hungry but were soon satisified with this fabulous range of healthy foods.  Thank you to all the children,  teachers, staff and to the parents Olga and Jackie for their help on the morning.  We hope to do this once a term in the future!  Have a look at some photos from the morning!
