Footballers are paid too much………..?

An interesting science experiment to explore the % of oxygen in air.

We had fun in the sun followed by well deserved ice-creams!

We’ve had 2 exciting debates in room 14 so far. The boys have discussed the merits of homework and the importance of honesty.

We were the first class to use the new school laptops. We used them to do some research for our current projects.

The boys knitted some beautiful gifts for Mother’s Day.

I’m sure all the mothers appreciated the hard work and patience it took for the boys to create these.

Some example of acrostic poems from 5th class

We read a fictional story about the sinking of the Titanic and then we read about a number of other famous shipwrecks.

This inspired us to create these wonderful paintings of the Titanic using, paint and pastels.

They tasted delicious  –  Thank you Mrs Kelly!

Pancake Tuesday!!

We are growing a garden-in-a-jar.

It is self watering and works in the same way as the water cycle – the water will be used over and over again.

We created wonderful projects to answer some interesting questions.

Mr. Kavanagh’s class were exploring physics, team-building and problem-solving with a drop of fun!

 

Beautiful Valentine cards created in the style of Romero Britto, a Brazilian artist. This modern pop culture art work is celebrated all over the world and the boys did a great job creating their own.

The boys in 6th class picked blackberries from the school garden. Mrs. Kelly made these into jam and Mrs. Kavanagh’s class had a competition to design a label for the school jam.

Caden and Marc were our two winners. Don’t their labels look great?

Hallowe’en Fun 

We made masks and dressed up. Can you recognise any of us?

Working and playing co-operatively

The boys used plastic cups and worked in groups to create the tallest structure they could.

I don’t think Keelan can take the pressure!

Such concentration, innovation and competition.
