What a busy term it has been in our school! The children in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class have worked so hard over the past few weeks. Have a look at what we have been up to!
Signs of Spring have been popping up everywhere and we wrote about these signs in Science and Geography!
We were very lucky to have Willie, Eddie and Alan from the local Fire Brigade visit us to talk about fire safety in the home. The children had to complete a checklist at home ensuring they are following safety guidelines in the case of an emergency.
To mark Engineers’ Week, we were very lucky to attend the local library where Karyn read a story called “Rosie Revere, Engineer” to us all. We then had to make helicopters using paper and paperclips. The children tried out different ways of making their helicopters fly faster and slower and had so much fun!
We had fun making St.Patrick’s Day art and craft…..
We dressed up in in green to raise money for those affected by war in the Ukraine.
In Gaeilge, we were learning about “Sa Bhaile” and learned a poem called “Mo Chaitín”.
To celebrate all those lovely women in our lives and to mark Mothering Sunday, we made paper bouquets and bookmarks.
We worked hard on projects over the past number of weeks and the children did an amazing job researching and presenting a topic of their choice to their classmates! Topics included Dinosaurs, Visionary Women around the World, Horses, Imaginext, Farming, Cooking & Baking, Cats, Tigers, The Solar System and so much more!
To celebrate Easter, we read and learned about the Easter Story. The children completed pictures for the Bishop’s Art Competition based on the theme of “Hope”. Here are some of their wonderful entries…..
We read a story called “Lovejoy’s Song.” It is based on the Easter Story from the viewpoint of a bird and drew pictures….
We created some lovely Easter art….
The children received a treat box filled with eggs….
We wrote super Easter Acrostic Poems in English……
The children designed super book covers for the book fair held in our school………..
We had the Funky Kids Show on 31st March after ten weeks of singing and dancing with Denis and Olivia. Each child was a superstar on the day! Well done boys and girls!
On the last day of term, the 3rd class who have been working with Mrs. Joyce on Minecraft Maps and designing islands, presented their work to the children in 1st and 2nd class. It was great to see how their ideas were transformed from an idea on a piece of paper to a computerised drawing! Well done boys and girls and thank you Mrs. Joyce!
Happy Easter to you all! Well done on a great term’s work everybody!
