Landscapes Around The World
We have been learning about famous landmarks around the world, as well as in Ireland. We really enjoyed learning facts about different structures! We even constructed our favourite ones – please see the photos of our creations!! We constructed The Eiffel Tower, London Eye, Pyramids, Golden Gate Bridge, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Burj Khalfia, The Great Wall of China and The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and learned about many more! Did you know, many of these buildings are lit up green for St. Patrick’s Day!
World Book Day 2019 – We Love Reading!
World Book Day 2019 (March 7th) did not disappoint!! The boys and girls in room 20 made a huge efforts dressing up as their favourite characters and authors. They brought in their favourite books and did lots and lots of DEAR time! We participated in a fashion show in the hall and we even had an extreme reading photo shoot!! Reading is brilliant and you can read ANYWHERE!!! See our photos to find out more…..
Granny and Grandads’ Day
We celebrated a hugely successful Grandparents Day in room 20 on Wednesday 6th February. The boys and girls spent weeks preparing their performance, which included poems, songs, tin whistle tunes and jokes. They also created beautiful paintings with special memories of grandparents. As well as that they wrote their own acrostic poems. It was a lovely afternoon, we were even treated to a rendition of The Offaly Rover by one Grandad. Darragh also did an amazing performance on the ukulele with Ms. Dowling and Mr. Dufficy, and Ms. Lee joined in on the violin! We wish we could do it all over again! It really was a day to remember and thanks to all the family members who could join us on this special day!
The photos and videos below showcase the performance on 6th February as well as the weeks of preparation beforehand. The boys and girls learned about life in past from a variety of perspectives including home life, school life, and games which were played in the past. A special thank you to Ms. Malone for taking the time to teach us all about life in the past and showing us such lovely artefacts. We really appreciate it!
Odd Socks Day
We celebrated anti-bullying week from 21st-25th January. On Wednesday 23rd we held an odd socks day! Some of the boys and girls in our class even decided to wear odd shoes and runners! It was a special day for all of us to showcase our differences. We are all UNIQUE! We really enjoyed wearing odd socks!! Please see some photos below.
Christmas Around The World
Ms. Newman’s class spent time during December learning about Christmas traditions in countries around the world. We researched information about Christmas in Germany, Mexico, Japan and many more countries! We invited Ms. Dowling and some other classes to see our projects and put in lots of effort! Ms Newman is very proud of all the boys and girls and their projects. A big thank you to everyone who helped at home to complete these projects also! Please see some pictures of our brilliant efforts…..
We love to welcome visitors to our classroom. On 28th November we learned all about bees, pollen and bee keeping. We were lucky enough to taste some honey…. it was delicious! Some pupils became beekeepers for the day and wore the protective clothing and carried out some beekeeping activities. It was great fun and we learnt lots! You can see what we got up to in our photos…..
