We were learning all about how our lungs work and how we breathe today. Our visiting teacher Ms. Byrne did a fun experiment with us using a bottle and balloons to show how our breathing works. Have a look at our pictures.
It was an exciting morning today as all of 5th and 6th class had the spelling bee class competitions. We have the final in the school hall tomorrow and the winner goes through to the Meath Spelling Bee final. Best of luck to Niamh and Eliza who were super spellers today. Good luck in the final girls!!!
We enjoyed our Catholic Schools Week in Réalt na Mara this week. We took part in our school Mass doing readings, prayers and bringing up offertory gifts. We also had to lead the singing which sounded beautiful! On Friday we made St. Brigid's crosses (see our Art Gallery section). We also had a few other exciting events that day so have a look at our News section to find out more! .....
We started out bright and early on Fri 11th Jan and we set off for the RDS in Dublin to show our scientific talents at the BT Primary Science Exhibition. What an amazing day we had. We started the day by preparing our stand and setting everything up. After that we attended the special show with Scientific Sue. Sophie got a chance to take part! Then it was back to our stand to start our exhibition. Several judges visited our stand during the day and spoke to the girls about their electronic quizzes that they had made. Lots of children and adults were treated to some very confident presentations from the girls and I am so very proud of each and every one of them. I stood back and watched as they explained what we had done and helped both young and old use the quizzes and have some fun. Our main judge was very impressed with the girls' work and thought they were very knowledgeable about electric circuits! He also complimented the girls on all of their hard work and their wonderful display. Well done to all of the girls for representing our school so well. As always they were a credit to the school and their families. Thank you so much also to our SNA Bobbie who helped us so much and to the wonderful parents, Helena, Lynn and Caroline who all helped out on the day. It was an absolutely fantastic day!
We continued our work with electrical circuits this week and we designed our own electrical quizzes. We will invite some other classes to come in and try out our new ways of learning! Teacher was delighted with our team work and cooperation with each other and she enjoyed trying out our quizzes herself too!
All of the girls in Rang a sé completed projects on an EU country of their choice over the last few weeks. They also had to present their project to their classmates. What a wonderful job they all did! Teacher is so proud of their presenting skills and of how hard they worked on the projects. Well done everyone and keep up the hard work! You should be so proud of yourselves!
Are you looking forward to Science Week 2018? We are!! Wait until you see what we have planned......
We have been learning the song 'Defying Gravity' from the musical 'Wicked' in Music this month. We definitely have some budding Idina Menzels in our class! Then we decided to try to draw and paint our versions of the witch Elphaba. Here are some pictures of the 'wicked' art in action! Have a look at our Art Gallery to see the finished art work!!
What a wonderful opportunity we had today! We had a visit to the school from The Garda Band and they were absolutely amazing! We sang along to many tunes from artists such as Bruno Mars and many Disney songs too! We got to see and hear all of the instruments from each section of the band and sang and danced along to all of the music. Thank you so much to the Garda Band for coming to our school today. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit!
