French student


We had a french student Paulina in our class for 3 days and another french student Kevin for one day. We learned about France and learned the song 'Frere Jacques' in french and the same song 'Are you sleeping' in English. Then we sang the two songs as part of a round. We coloured Irish and French flags and used the artist Claude Monet's waterlillies as inspiration for our own art. We did a great job. We also learned to count to 5 in french and we learned the french words for hello, goodbye, please, thank you, yes and no.

Mothers Day

We went to the garden centre and got a special basket of flowers for our mammies for mothers day. We drew a map of our journey to the garden centre in our copies. We made special cards for our mammies too. 
Happy Mothers Day to all our special Mammies!!

Down Syndrome Awareness day


We wore different socks to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness day on 21st March. We brought in money for charity too and the school collected over 440 euro. Thank you to everyone for their kind donations.

Seachtain na Gaeilge.

We have been working really hard learning our Irish songs for our ceolchoirm. We are learning the chorus of the song 'shotgun' in Irish and are looking forward to singing it with the rest of the school. We are also learning our song 'Chuaigh mé go dtí an bhfeirm' and our rann 'Dhá éinín dheasa' We are looking forward to showing them to the whole school.

We had our céilí and did wonderful dancing for the rest of the school and we had a chance to do some freestyle dancing too, we did a great job!

 


 

We made shamrock headbands for Saint Patrick's Day and did rainbow pot of gold using pointillism technique in Art.






 The girls from 6th class came to help us play Bingo in Irish. Thank you girls.

Aistear fun

Look at the fun we have been having in Aistear. We had fun with the small world animals, jigsaws, blocks, we played maths games on the tablets and junk art. We had fun writing on the whiteboards with whiteboard markers and we have been practicing writing our letters. We are getting so good at writing our letters and words now! We used the pegs and peg boards and had fun exploring weight using the bucket balances. We played maths games and had fun painting at our creative station.
