** School Closed on Wed, Oct 16th for teacher in-service.**
As part of Science Week, we drew pictures of mad scientists and did some colour mixing in their science beakers. The children really enjoyed this guided drawing and each scientist ended up with their own style and personality!
Lesson inspired by Cassie Stephens.
We had great fun working as scientists during Science Week (10th-17th Nov). We did lots of experiments including 'Dancing Raisins', 'Lemon Volcanoes' and we even made plastic out of milk! We had lots of fun and Science Week was a huge sucess!
In October, 1st and 2nd class were learning about the Rainforest. We learned about the 4 layers found in a Rainforest (the forest floor, the understory, the canopy and the emergent layer) and we explored the animals that lived in each layer. We worked in teams to create a vertical rainforest banner and each group drew a different layer, including lots of plants and animals.
We would like to congratulate Nathan Keye on his win at the World ISKA Muay Thai Kickboxing Championships in the 10-12years <33kg category. He won by unanimous decision in Cork on Friday,18 October 2019.
We have been having great fun exploring paint and colour. We took inspiration from Wassily Kandinsky to paint concentric circles. We also used the book 'Mixed' by Arree Chung as inspiration for our painted faces. Our painting skills are getting better with each project.
