Skittles

We have a lot of sports equipment in our school. Some days when it is dry and sunny we take out the skittles and soft bowling ball and play games of bowling and skittles.  It’s a lot of fun. I enjoy playing it with my friends.

Dodge Ball

Date posted: 25th February 2011 | Category Blog, Physical Education | Tagged , |

Dodgeball is great fun. We have to try and hit the people on the other team with the ball but the difficult bit is it has to be under their knees.

If you are hit under the knee, you have to go to jail behind the other team. To get out of jail, you have to catch the ball and throw it to your own team, if someone catches it, you can be released from jail.

The winning team is the one that has the least number of people in jail.

The Irish Famine

Date posted: 20th February 2011 | Category History, Senior Classroom | Tagged , |

For the past few weeks we have been learning about the Irish famine. We found out that half of the population of Ireland either emigrated or died. All of the potatoes died from blight and people sometimes had to eat grass and nettles.

1847 was the worst year of the famine, knwn as ‘Black ’47’. Some people had no option but to leave their homes and go to the workhouse for food and shelter. 

We also read the book ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ which was a story about three children called Eily, Michael and Peggy O’Driscoll. The book tells about their life during the famine.
