 We celebrated World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st. Check out our socks! Well done everyone for your donations.

We celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day with lots of songs and poetry and music. Lá ‘le Pádraig Shona duit.

Spring has finally arrived. We did some maths work outside and painted some Spring pictures.

For Valentines Day we studied some art work by American artist Jim Dine. Check out some of our work . 

 

Art

We have been experimenting with line and shading in our drawing during Art lessons for the last few weeks. We have been having fun working with pencil, charcoal, oil pastels and chalk pastels. Check out some of our art work.

  

Science

For science our class was covering the topic of Water. We carried out lots of experiments to investigate how items can float and sink and also to see how water rises up a plant and how water moves upwards in a glass when we put a lime into the glass.

  

We did a performance of Donkey For Sale for our parents. Our class did a great job. Check out how great we all looked in our costumes.

         

We raised over €600 for charity doing our annual Santa Dash. We had such fun. 


In Maths this week we have been learning about length. Today was a lovely bright day to get outdoors and do some Maths.

 

 

We also did some measuring indoors too.

It’s December, so that means Christmas is coming. Check out our Winter art, we are all hoping for snow!
