Here we are at our Buddies stations for Engineers Week, enjoying building fun in the sunshine!
First Class really enjoyed World Book Day last week! We loved having extra DEAR time and dressing up. Take a look at some of our super costumes!
Junior infants had great fun on World Book Day. We really enjoyed sharing stories with our 6th class buddies. We also listened to Julia Donaldson read “The Teeny Weeny Genie”, played a game of Name that Book, made book markers, enjoyed the school parade and added lots of links to our school paper chain!
We were so busy!!!
On World Book Day we all dressed up as our favourite book characters and read our books out to our class pals.
We learned all about volcanoes in 5th class and got to make our own! We used bottles as our base and then used glue and newspaper to create the volcano shape. Next, we painted them and let them dry. Finally, we got to do the explosion! We mixed baking soda, vinegar and red food dye and watched the volcanoes erupt. Making the volcanoes was so much fun and we enjoyed the eruption, even though it was really messy (and everything smelled like vinegar)!
Thursday 3rd March was World Book Day and we were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day to celebrate, adding to the bright colours of the childrens’ costumes. Aside from the various activities that took place in each classroom, the children of the school from 6th class down to Junior Infants, took part in a parade around the yard at breaktime, showing off their costumes to each other. It was super to see all the children back together again!
Mr. Ross’s 6th class brought in their favourite picture books from whenever they were younger. They met their Junior Infant buddies in Mrs. Duffy’s class on World Book Day to read to their books to them and to see their fantastic WBD costumes.
Sixth Class got their Class of ’22 hoodies. We were all very excited and are looking forward to wearing them throughout the rest of the year!
Thank you to the parents for organising this for us!!
