What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Friendship Assembly 

17th February 2017 Today we took assembly, our message was about friendship. We had a drama about not being selfish, unkind and how to work together. We wrote a recipe about ‘ingredients to be a good friend’ and we all wrote a prayers about friendship and the best three were read aloud. Oscar wrote a great poem about what friendship means to him. Then we sang as a class”you got a friend in me”. We were all absolutely brilliant.  

As part of our drama we needed food for the buffet. After break we had a party with all the delicious treats!!! We had to sit beside a classmate that we would not normally sit next to and you had to be polite and give your classmates the food that they asked for before serving yourself. After the feast we wrote compliment cards for everyone so everyone now has a compliment card to read! Thanks Ms O’Connor and Judith for a fabulous day!!!

Young Scientist

Young Scientist     5th class took part in the Primary Science Fair on 14th January 2017. Our title was Cargo ships and cruise liners, how do they float?

    First Mr. Z came in and told us all about density. Then in November we started researching the titles we were given. Everyday we would report back to the class so we didn’t have to research everything individually. Eventually we started researching experiments we could use to show our seven scientific names. We then started to experiment, finding out that some experiments worked and others didn’t. 

    It took a lot of work and eventually we were ready to showcase our project to 3rd, 4th and 6th. 1st class were learning about floating and sinking so we presented it to them too. 

    On the 14th of January we set up our table up at 9:00. We were all in groups, so we spent 1.5 hours speaking to the public. 

     We learnt lots and lots and had a great time. It is definitely an experience to remember.
