Room 14 Fifth Class: School Tour Friday 21st June 2019

Fifth Class had a great time on their school tour today. We went to the GPO Experience at the General Post Office, O Connell Street Dublin 1 firstly. This was the headquarters of the 1916 Easter Rising. A special thanks to Alex, our tour guide for the day. After a brief lunch on the rooftop terrace of the GPO, we walked 1,400 metres from the GPO to the famous Viking museum, Dublinia where Ian brought us back to this majestic era! Over the course of Fifth Class, we had completed much research, project work and inquiry into the 1916 Easter Rising and the Viking Era in Ireland. This very much complemented and built upon our knowledge. A very very special thank you to Ciara, Seja, Anna and Ms. Glynn for their company. It was greatly appreciated. Pat, our bus driver also deserves a shout out! Thank you Pat. Please see photos...

First and Third class: Reading buddies

The first and third class children took part in a shared reading programme last term. Each first class child or ‘junior buddy’ was assigned a third class ‘senior’ reading buddy, and the pair met and read together three times each week over a six week period. They swapped predictions, connections, summaries, favourite details, feedback on their reading skills, and even bookmarks they made for each other at the end of the six weeks! They really impressed their teachers with their shared reading skills, and the kindness they showed towards each other. Well done Room 6 & Room 11 🙂 To see more photos of the book buddies busy at work please click here.     ...

Second Class Room 10: World Book Day

Second class enjoyed celebrating World Book Day by writing and illustrating their very own fictional narrative stories. Each ‘author’ completed two or three drafts of their story so they were perfect. Each book included amazing characters, wonderful illustrations and an exciting blurb at the back. Have a look at us making our brilliant books here.  ...
