We have been very busy in room 29 since Christmas. We finished our swimming lessons in the Waterfront and we were all delighted to receive our certificates.
We have started our GAA training with the coaches from Wexford GAA. We are learning the 10 hurling positions and our skills are really improving.
We learned all about Tom Crean. We drew portraits of Tom Crean and we also learned to draw penguins. We were really happy with how they turned out.
Check back soon to see what else we have been up to!
In room 29 we are busy preparing for Christmas. We have been practicing for our Christmas concert and creating lovely Christmas art.
Our class Christmas wreath.
One of groups created this Christmas tree together.
Another group created a giant snowman.
We created the reindeer and lights cards using our thumb prints.
Check back soon to see more of our Christmas art.
This morning third class were really busy. We wrapped up really warm and went out to the yard to do some measuring. We had lots of fun!
Busy recording our estimations.
We used trundle wheels and metre sticks to help us measure.
It was 93m from the door of the junior school to the door of the senior school. We used a trundle wheel to measure this.
We have been really lucky in room 29 as we had our second storyteller from Enniscorthy Library in today. Read what some of the pupils in our class had to say about our visitor.
Today, a storyteller from the library came to tell us stories and draw pictures. He told us that he often draws pictures of goblins and wizards. Mr Lehane’s class came to our room to listen to him too. He told us about Roald Dahl and how he wrote all his amazing stories. He also explained to us how he got them published and into the shops. Then ha acted out the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and he told is that the wolf really blew up. I had lots of fun.
Today, a storyteller came to our classroom. Enniscorthy library organised it for us. He told us lots of stories such as; ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. He told us he also draws cartoons and mystical pictures. He talked to us about how Roald Dahl wrote his stories. He was very funny, so funny that I nearly fell off my chair I laughed so much. The man drew pictures of a pig, a wolf, a chicken and a witch. He was excellent at drawing. I enjoyed listening to the two stories.
This is us listening really carefully to the storyteller.
We were all laughing at his picture of a ‘pig’.
Next, he drew a really good picture of a pig.
He pretended that our classroom was a jungle.
Here are a few photographs from our Maths week. We had great fun with all our activities. We had QR trails, games in the hall with Mr Foley’s class, board games in our class and guess how many conkers in the box (from Mr Gregg’s class). Ms Mackin’s class made us all hungry with her competition to guess how many maltesers were in a 2 litre bottle. We are already looking forward to next year!
