We read the mythical story 'The Children of Lir' for history. A myth is a traditional story that always includes magic. Aoife, the evil step mother turned the four children into swans. The boys created swans in art to depict the story.

Happy Halloween

As part of our Halloween celebrations, we carved a pumpkin. The boys named him X eyes!

We also created potions for turning a teacher into a toad. We thought of nouns, verbs and adjectives to help with the potion writing!

We are so lucky to have Peter from St. Pat's GAA in our school every Friday for some GAA. We went out to Peter before Halloween break.
His team won their big final on Sunday. We made some flags to stick on our windows to cheer them on!

We did some experiments in our class for science week!
1. Dancing raisins
2. Lava lamps
3. Regular coke volcano.

This is the dancing raisins experiment. The bubbles from the fizzy water help the raisins dance at the top of the water!

Scratch Art- Scraffiti

We created scraffiti for art. It involved colouring a page heavily with crayons. Next, we painted the whole page with black acrylic paint and waited for that to dry.

Finally, we scratched out the black paint using skewers, lollipop sticks and paintbrushes.

Check out our scratch art here!

St. Brigid's Day 2022

St. Brigid's Day is on February 1st each year. It signals the first day of Spring. We read the story of how Brigid used a cloak and it spread over the land to make a church. The boys did weaving in art to make the cloak.

Safer internet day was on Tuesday February 8th. We spoke about being smart with a heart when on the internet.

We wrote short comics to tell the story of 'The Way Back Home'.
