Seachtain na Gaeilge 2020
We were very lucky today, as we celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge with a trip to the cinema. We watched the SpongeBob movie as Gaeilge and really enjoyed it.
We had loads of fun this week, celebrating Engineers week. One of our activities was designing structures using marshmallows and spaghetti.
This week the children have been learning about reconciliation through a story called "Shauna's Story." Shauna is a girl who told a lie but decided to make things right again by saying sorry and confessing that she had lied, which made her feel much better. The children were split into two groups. One group were tasked with giving reasons to "Shauna" as to why she should tell the truth. The other group needed to make up reasons as to why she should not confess the truth. In the end, the class came to the conclusion that the best thing for "Shauna" to do was confess the truth and say sorry.
Today we conducted an experiment on whether some solids would turn into liquids when heated up. We put butter, an apple, jelly, ice cubes, ice cream and some chocolate into cups. We put the cups standing in some hot water for 10 minutes and recorded whether each one melted or remained a solid.
Killakee Christmas Tree Farm Visit
We were very lucky this week, as the class were invited to Killakee Christmas Tree farm. We learned about the history of Christmas trees, how to tell the age of a Christmas tree, the key ingredients to growing the perfect tree and lots more. We also did a Scavenger hunt, which we really enjoyed!
