PostHeaderIcon March 2020 in Ms. Downey’s Class

 

4th Class Homework during School Closure

Ms. Downey’s Class, please do not forget about the account on Google Drive that Ms.Kelly showed you. You can take photos of your work and email it so I can correct it. Ms. Kelly and I will put more activities up on the account as time goes by. Ms. Thornton also has a folder in the English section.

From Wednesday 18th on try to do a little English, Gaeilge, Maths and P.E. everyday and the other areas once a week. Also remember Twinkl is free for one month.

Stay safe!

Córfhéile na Scoileanna 2020

On Wednesday March 4th Ms. Downey’s Class, together with Ms. Kelly’s and the 5th and 6th Classes, took part in the Córfhéile in the Basketball Arena in Tallaght. This is a non-competitive choir event. Ms. Geraghty conducted the choir and Kevin accompanied them on piano. The choir sang Peigín Leitir Mór and The Rio Grande. The musicians played Butterfly and Steampacket.  Gardiner Street School sounded amazing, got a great report and all the teachers were so proud of the boys and girls!

Trip to Liberty Hall 

The very next day Thursday March 5th Ms. Downey and Ms. Kelly’s Classes were invited to Liberty Hall where we met Shane Hegarty and Ben Mantle, the author and illustrator of our Guided Reading book Boot. Shane told us a bit about himself and read from the book while Ben showed us all how to draw Boot. We all drew Boot with him. Then we got the chance to describe and name our own imaginary robots which Ben drew. We came up with The Mc Donalds Burger Bot ( I suspect the children may have been hungry!). At the end of the session, which passed all too quickly, Ben gave us one of his signed drawings to bring back to the school. We also each got a signed copy of Boot.

 

   

   

   

Look out for the next book in the series Boot; The Rusty Rescue which is in shops NOW. If you use your World Book Day Token you will get 1.50 off it.

Stitching for Fun

On Wednesday 11th March we held our Certificate Ceremony to mark the end of Stitching for Fun. Ellie presented each child with a certificate and a treat. Ms. Downey had treats for all the wonderful Mams, Dad and Nanas who helped out. Ms. O’Doherty was very impressed indeed!

St. Patrick’s Day

We cut out and decorated Ties for St. Patrick’s Day. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to perform in our  Lá Fhéile Pádraig Ceolchoirm but, despite it being a very busy day, Ms. O’Doherty did make it over to A5 to hear Galway Girl on the tin whistle, the poem An Leipreachán Aimeadach with actions and a rousing performance of  An Haka Gaelach.

Lá Fhéile Padraig shona dhaoibh go léir!
