Special Showcase for Julia

Well done to Julia. She won a special showcase for her lovely story about her friend Mia.  Julia’s story is a lovely way to remember Mia. We miss her every day.  

Best Friends Forever

There was a girl called Mia . She had a rare condition that meant that she could not run or jump. Mia had good friends that are called Julia , Julia and Mia B. They all were best friends forever and respected each other.
Mia said “I’m sick of the rare condition, so that’s why I’m always last in races “.
Then Julia said “you’re always number one for us and you’re best at maths, science and Irish even though you worry about it “.
And that was nice, to not let her down and one day she won first place in maths, Irish and science.
From that day Mia loved her friends .

Busy Week!

We’ve had a busy week this week! 

Our seeds that we planted continue to grow! Some of them grew so tall now during the mid-term break that it took three of us to measure them! 

 

 

 

 

 

On Tuesday we had sports conditioning training. It was great fun. We also learned about healthy eating and nutrition.

 

 

 

 

 

Emma from the RSA also visited on Tuesday and spoke to us about being safe on the roads and in the care. The best advice is to be ‘Aware’ when you are on the road, as a pedestrian, a cyclist or in a car.

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday was ‘Ash Wednesday’. We received ashes from Fr. Eugene and we made our Lenten promises.

 

 

 

 

We’ve been celebrating ‘Friendship Week’ all week. We had some fun activities with Ms Sulllivan’s 5th class. We played games in the hall, wrote poems and did some ‘Friend-Ship’ art.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Thursday and Friday we do  Maths Circuits. We love this part of the week. We were able to use the new laptops for one our circuits. 

 

 

 

 

We’ve started our ‘One World – Irish Aid award projects this week too.

Pip School by David

One day at Pip school on Pip Street,  Ms Gobble left her class alone for two minutes and they went bonkers.  They shouted and laughed a lot.  The noise was SO loud that  even Ms Pain’s class could hear them.  Tom Chickle took out some cooked sausages for the class and Jimmy Johnstone put on rock music.  Some people put their hands in the air like they just didn’t care.  The door swung open and in walked a very cross and angry teacher.  ALRIGHT! she shouted.  I’m thinking extra homework for this class. Sighs filled the room.

Two Winners

We are delighted this week to have TWO winners this week for the Special Showcase! You can read all our wonderful stories here. https://msbrennocksclass.100wc.net/

By Lorcan

At dawn and dusk, twilight slips through the gap. On one special dawn a little Angel girl looked up at the mauve sky. She got very tearful because her brother had died at dawn. She decided she would grow three carrots for her  brother Steel. She grew them because that was his favourite food. She sang a little song every dawn it went like this, “under the mauve sky I can see my brother flying on a carrot ship.” Her two dogs would sit beside her, Milly and Steel Jr. Sometimes even the robins would join in, this would make her smile.

By Abby

Oscar was a small grey cat, he lived on a big farm
with loads of other animals. Thomas the farmer always took care of him and knew that Oscar’s favourite food was carrots. One day Thomas brought Oscar in for some food and accidentally spilt mauve dye on his fur. Oscar was very tearful but Thomas didn’t mind, he liked that colour. As an apology Thomas allowed Oscar use their new steel cutlery to eat his dinner. After dinner he went out to the other animals, they all loved his new look so Oscar didn’t feel so under the weather.

The Great Carrot Pick Off by Zach

It was the day of the great Carrot Pick Off.  There was a farmer called jack. He had been collecting carrots. The day had finally come.  Jack went to the Carrot Pick Off with his carrots in his mauve van.  Jack finally got there. Under his van he spotted a carrot , if he took it he would have cheated because it was not his carrot.

The judges counted up all of the carrots, the winner was Jack.  The judge gave Jack the giant steel carrot trophy.  One of the other farmers was very tearful because he had lost some of his carrots.

New Year’s Eve

It was New Year’s Eve, we were leaving 2016 behind us and we were looking forward to the future. I was in London visiting my Uncle and cousins. We went into London town that evening to celebrate New years Eve. It was almost midnight, the streets were lined with people, it was so so busy. All of a sudden the crowd went near silent they all looked in the direction of Big Ben the largest clock in England and the count down began. We heard the loud Chimes of the clock. When it got 12am everyone cheered to my surprise I heard a huge explosion, I looked in front and behind, which way was the noise coming  from?, then I looked up and saw the most amazing fireworks I’ve ever seen.
