We held a special fundraising book sale for the Childhood Cancer Foundation this week. All the different classes got the chance to donate and buy books for this worthy cause. Well done and a big thank you to Rachel, Aleksandra, Lily, Christine, Aoife, Elsa, Claudia, & Gali in 5th and 6th class who organised the fundraiser with such thoughtfulness, care and efficiency.
We have been learning all about winter in school so we decided to wrap up warmly in our winter clothes and go outside for a lovely walk. We especially noticed how different the trees were from the autumn time. We also saw some lovely little robins. We love learning about nature!
Have a look at our patterned winter mittens!
We loved making these super snowmen paintings.
This week 5th and 6th class visited DreamSpace at the Microsoft Ireland offices. We had a great time discussing how technology intersects with our lives and how it will affect jobs in the future. We had a tour of the Microsoft building and discussed its architecture and how people work there. We also learned how to code 'Sphero' robots and engaged in challenges in pairs. It was a fantastic day!
