** School Closed on Wed, Oct 16th for teacher in-service.**
As part of our Green Schools campaign, 5th and 6th Class went to Herzog Park and collected litter. We found lots of plastic, glass bottles and food wrapers. It is great to give back to the community and make Herzog Park pleasant for everyone.
On Wednesday the junior and senior infants took a trip to the National Gallery of Ireland. This was our very first outing and I was so proud of our wonderful infants. We traveled in on the bus and took a guided tour of the gallery. Our two guides were fantastic and showed us many different paintings and sculptures. We loved the paint of Strongbow and Aoife.
We are counting down the days to our summer tour!
Inspired by all the rain this April, we created rain clouds. We had great fun splatter painting. We also named our creations. Check them out below.
We are learning all about the parts of a plant and the conditions needed to grow healthy plants. We are working as scientists and doing lots of fun experiments.
We learned about magnestism in science class and we made our own compasses. We magnetised a needle and placed it on a cork disc floating in water. We were amazed that the needle turned towards the north. We think that science is exciting and fascinating!
