On Wednesday morning, the children in 5th class headed off on their school tour to Croke Park. They toured the grounds of the stadium, visited the dressing rooms, learned lots of historical facts relating to events held in the stadium and even spent time in the commentary stand!
After a quick bite to eat and a chance to kick a ball and hit a sliotar, they headed off JumpZone for some fantastic fun in the inflatable adventure park.
The children in Room 32 recently completed some fabulous art work using Sphero robots as part of their STEM projects. They created paintings in the style of the artist Jackson Pollack using Spheros instead of brushes! They controlled the robots using the Sphero Edu app on iPads.
The children from Room 30 were busy this week in the STEM room planning for a very special project they are doing for their friends in the Infant building!
What could they be doing??
A great day was had by the children from 2nd class in the bog today!
Second class travelled to Causey Farm in Co. Meath today. The children had fantastic fun meeting an array of animals, befriending chickens and feeding the alpacas. They created huge bubbles, made wishes at the wishing bell and best of all they got to take a tractor-trailer ride to the bog where the fun and laughter continued.
The children in 5th class, Rooms 27 & 28 have been exploring the Earth using an augmented reality ipad app this week as part of their STEM activities.
The children in Room 17 have been learning about Norman Castles.
They designed, created and presented their own Norman Castles and have recorded some video walk-arounds so we can all have a look at them.
Kindness Week continued today with 5th class girls having a lovely tine building lego with the children in Room 34, 6th and 2nd class playing board games together, Junior Infants and 3rd taking part in a PE lesson together and lots of classes walking the daily mile together.
