We were treated to some wonderful entertainment from all classes at the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge! We celebrated the Irish culture through language, music and dance. The talent was unbelievable. Well done to all the children and teachers for all of their hard work! Go raibh maith agaibh!!!
Ms Connolly’s 5th class visit Ms Brady’s 2nd Class presenting PowerPoints on Irish Legends.
The Children of Lir- The King’s Four children were turned into swans for 900 years by their jealous and wicked stepmother!
Tir na nOg
We learned that poor Oisin turned into a very old man on touching the soil in Ireland.
Today we went on a trip to Dalkey Castle. We got a tour of the castle and learned about murder holes, feasts and life during the Norman times. When we were in the old church, a slave that had escaped from Dalkey island ran in and gave us a fright but we gave him sanctuary and then he was free! We had great fun and learned a lot!
We went up on the roof of the castle. It was a fantastic look-out for enemies coming in from the sea or the hills!
This man was a doctor, barber and a dentist!
Good thing all our teeth are in good shape, otherwise they would have been yanked out!
We made our own coins we could use to barter for other items.
We even put Ms.Keyes in the stocks!
This is the slave that escaped from Dalkey Island!
We have been studying Italy in 4th class. We loved learning about Venice and even got to travel around it on a gondola on google maps! For art we designed and painted venitian masks! People living in Venice used to spend most of the year wearing these masks as a disguise but now they are mostly just worn at Carnival.
We went down to the science room on Thursday and learned all about renewable and non-renewable resources. We spoke about ways to help stop global warming and how we can save energy at home. We also made circuits. We made an alarm go off and a fan spin!
Today Ms Walsh's 1st Class had our Christmas Performance! The children worked very hard to learn lots of songs and rhymes, both in English and as Gaeilge. I am very, very proud of them all as they did a super job and really gave it socks!! We had a great time preparing for it and I hope the Mammys, Daddys, Nanas and everyone else who was able to make it had a great time too!
Take a look at our fabulous performers!! :)
Daddy Graham, Mammy Kelly and baby Finn joined us on Monday to teach us :)
Big thank you to Ms Barrett, Karen and Laura who helped with the art in our classroom today. We visited Ms Doyle and Mrs Cornejo's classrooms too. Brilliant day!!!
Ms Walsh's first class have been really lucky this year as we have gained a brand new teacher! Baby Finn (our new teacher) has been visiting our class every few weeks to help us learn about empathy - to understand how other people feel and to learn more about our own feelings. We absolutely LOVE when Baby Finn and Mammy Kelly come to visit us! Just look at our faces!!!
We mixed food colouring with bubble solution to make colourful bubbles! Then we blew the bubbles and let the pop onto our pages!
drop the cherry!
We designed a pizzeria!
Guess who’s in teacher role today!
The connect 4 battle is on!
Let’s get creative. It’s time for the LEGO kids!
Time to relax in the library! Quiet time.
Check out all the Halloween fun we had before the break :)
