We have been studying the topic of space over the last month. We learned about the planets and life in space. We enjoyed a trip to the Hawkswell Theatre and saw a play called Secrets of Space. We then worked on creating simple space projects in class. We loved presenting our work to the rest of the class.
We told the stories in our reading books to the children in fifth class. They asked us lots of questions about our books and wrote some nice comments in our record books.
During the week we did the Skeleton Dance. On Friday we dressed up, visited 6th class to show off our costumes and played some games in the hall.
Our Aistear topic is the home as part of this we painted houses. We talked about the parts of houses and the shape of the different parts.
We made pumpkin monsters for Halloween. First we painted the pumpkins then we drew around templates for the mouths and eyes, cut them out and stuck them onto our pumpkins. Some of us decided to add teeth.
Well done to the senior boys team (James Lynch, Oisín Choo, Matthew Keeley, Bríain Cullinane, Finn McDaniel) that took part in the Connacht Cross Country Finals in Longford. Thank you to our young supporters and the parents who made the trip to Longford to cheer the boys on.
