Christmas 2016

Ms O Brien’s group made coconut snowballs desserts. We made small balls of dough which we then rolled in sugar syrup and then into desiccated coconut. It was a messy lesson but lots of fun and there were even yummy to taste.

Painting with Ice
We poured different coloured paints into ice cube trays. We placed lollipop sticks in to the centre of each paint cube. We placed the trays into the freezer for 24 hours. When we removed the ice cubes of paint from the trays we the set about painting Christmas themed paintings. It was extremely messy but great fun.

Lemon Drizzle Cake
As a group we planned how to bake a lemon drizzle cake. We listed the ingredients and the method in sequence. Lucky us we got to go into the staffroom to bake the cake. We all took turns measuring, beating and mixing the cake. Ms O Brien placed the mixture into the oven for 55 mins at 180 degrees.
When it was cooled the next day we returned to the staffroom and mixed icing sugar and lemon juice together to make the drizzle icing. We were able to eat it immediately. It was delicious.

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.

Team teaching in English

We have been busy working with our teacher and Ms O’Brien in our English groups. We have completed lots of activities to help us with our phonics, handwriting and vocabulary. We have read lots of examples of narrative writing and written our own stories. We are able to predict, visualise and make connections when we are reading. We played some phonics games today to help us revise what we have learned so far.



Happy Chinese New Year!

To celebrate the Chinese New Year on January 22nd 2017, we made Chinese dragons in art. This year is the year of the rooster. Traditionally, dragons represent Chinese celebrations. We created dragons’ bodies by making intertwining loops with coloured card. Then we added detail to our dragon faces like piercing eyes, sharp teeth, pointy horns and long tongues!

Take a look at some of our work.
