Space week

Not only did we learn all about our Solar System this week, but we also watched lots of clips of astronaut Dr. Chris Hadfield from the Canadian Space Agency, who showed us what it is like to sleep, eat, cry and brush your teeth in space.  It was so fascinating we felt inspired to create our own galaxy using chalk pastels, white paint and black sugar paper.  The results are out of this world!

         

           

               

                                     

                                    

      

     

    

                             

 

Autumnal Trees

We are all so hugely proud of how our stunning Autumn Trees' paintings turned out.  They really capture the sense and colours of Autumn.  We hope you love them as much as we do!

                                     

                                     

                                      

                                     

                                     

                                     

                                    

                                    

 

Creative-Writing

After a whole class brainstorming session, we pieced together our ideas and feelings about Autumn into lovely pieces of creative-writing.  Here is just a sample of the wonderful writing in class!

         

   

          

        

                                                         

 

 Rockies Abú

Well it looks like the fantastic effort the girls made on Friday, by wearing green and gold to support The Rockies in the County Final has paid off!  Huge congratulations lads! Rockies Abú! 

                                    

                                   

                                               

                                    

 

European School Sports Day

This year we celebrated European School Sports Day by dropping everything and dancing along to some Go Noodle dance activities in class.  We definitely felt energised and ready to take on the day.

Cork Bike Week

What a fantastic day we had cycling and scooting around our school yards in participation of our school event for Cork Bike Week.  We even created and completed our own bicycle obstacle track to showcase our super cycling and scooting skills.  We had so much fun!

    

    

    

  

                               

 

Self-Portraits

We really enjoyed sketching and drawing self-portraits during our Visual Arts lesson today.  They turned out so great that we even had to frame them!  Each one unique, beautiful and special just like us. 

        

      

      

           

                                   

 

   We are all so happy to be back with our friends once again as we face an exciting year ahead!

Frozen Pictures

We really enjoy making Frozen Pictures of some of our favourite Fairytales in Drama.  It is very hard remaining statue still when you can't stop giggling!  Can you guess which famous fairytales we are re-creating in our groups?
