PostHeaderIcon September in Ms. Downey’s 4th Class

The boys and girls in A5 have had a busy September. Here we are doing Team Building Activities in P.E.

We explored some Maths and Gaeilge websites in Computers and had fun searching for old photos of our class on the school website.

We enjoyed our first Irish Dancing Class of the year with Cecelia and her daughter.

We had a lovely time using our new Storyteller’s Chair and benches last Friday afternoon. A big Thank You to Ms. Goggins for the idea. Ms. O’Doherty for buying it and Julius for setting it up. We hope to enjoy more outdoor reading sessions during the year.

We had so much fun at our first Swimming Class this year with Margaret in Sean Mc Dermott Street Pool.

In Art we learned about the artist Pablo Picasso and his abstract, cubist, asymmetrical paintings. Ms. Downey was so impressed by our Picasso style paintings. What do you think?

Finally inspired by the French artist Georges Seurat we tried our hand at Pointillism. Our Autumn Paintings might make you dotty!

In 4th class we looked at keeping ourselves healthy and explored what is unhealthy for our bodies. We put eggs in water, Ribena and Coke for one week. We asked what drink is most harmful to your teeth? We found out that water is good for your teeth, Coke is bad and Ribena is terrible.

PostHeaderIcon Know Your Ireland

6th Class have been busy this week revising the counties of Ireland. They were finding it challenging to remember all the counties in each province. They decided to work in groups to create some memorable mnemonics. We hope they help you to remember the counties in each province too.

Connacht: Mayo, Galway, Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo

Munster: Cork, Limerick, Clare, Waterford, Tipperary and Kerry 

Ulster: Monaghan, Donegal, Derry, Cavan, Antrim, Fermanagh, Down, Tyrone and Armagh

Leinster: Wicklow, Wexford, Offaly, Carlow, Dublin, Kilkenny, Kildare, Louth, Westmeath, Laois, Longford and Meath

It was tough to create the mnemonics especially for the larger provinces of Ulster and Leinster but we can all agree that they have done a great job. They are definitely memorable!
