To celebrate the end of Science Week, we made some floating ghosts.
Second Class get into the ‘spirit’ of things for Hallowe’en.
We had 21 new furry pupils on Tuesday. They wrecked our library, pulling books off the shelves but calmed down when we went outside for a picnic. We had a great time.
Sixth Class created headlines by choosing topics of interest and creating their own newspaper.
6th Class created their own newspapers choosing topics which were important to them. Each group then gave a presentation of their work. A very interesting and informative exercise.
These hot air balloons took us a few weeks to complete but we think they were worth it. We started off by covering our balloons with three layers of newspaper strips using wallpaper paste. After drying for a week, we divided the balloon into eight sections using ribbon. The baskets were made by cutting a paper cup and decorated to complement the colours of the balloon.
We receive the Irish Independent each Wednesday and mull over the contents. To make it more interesting for the children, we have decided to dramatise some of the topics covered. Here are some of the children in the throes of telling a story.
These ‘scream’ portraits were created using watery paints, a straw and lots of puff. Scary stuff.
The children of 6th Class were left exhausted after Maths Week.
As our crocuses have begun to bloom, we remember all the children who died under Nazi rule.
The beautiful flowers also remind us that, even after the most terrible events, new life begins again
and we can hope that things will be better than they were before. The flowers remind us that there is still beauty
in the world and hope for our future.
