2nd Class had great fun learning about static electricity.

They investigated how a balloon and a pen can be used to pick up small pieces of paper.

They also tested different materials, made some predictions and recorded the outcomes!

Christmas show fun!!!

Yesterday was a very special day for 6th class pupils. Not only did they write their own outstanding play and made amazing props they performed it in front of moms & dads, students, teachers and everybody else!!
On the day of the play some of our class mates had stage fright so we all encouraged each other to go on stage. On top of all this we were under time pressure to get the final script completed because we were also completing our history project.
Our play was first on out of the afternoon shows which were the 4th, 5th and 6th classes. Our play had so many funny bits and the audience got a great laugh!! Our play was about Santa not sticking to his diet all year and then he ended up getting stuck in a chimney!
After our play we got so many compliments about how funny it was! Our principal Mr. Hurley said that it was so funny and that he loved it. That made our whole class very happy.
We also had a very special guest, Leanne Murphy who came out at the end! We would like to give a special thanks to Olivia and Caoilfhionn for writing the first draft of the Christmas play! We would also like to give a special thanks to Ryan our musical director. We would also like to give a special thanks to our parents for all of the extra help and great support and encouragement always!! Happy Christmas everybody!!

Vikings!!

On Tuesday the 25th of October 4th and 5th class went to the Cork City Library in the Grand Parade. We went there for the Children’s Book Fest to see ‘Not so Vicious Vikings’. We had a great morning and learned loads about the Vikings!

Firstly we learned that the Vikings originated in Scandinavia. We were particularly interested in the Vikings that came from Norway as these were the ones that settled in Ireland. We learned lots about Viking fashion, clothing and hygiene. The ladies presenting told us that the Vikings wore linen to their skin as it was soft and dries easily and wool over the linen to keep them warm. We were interested to hear that the Vikings were very hygienic and always tried to keep as clean as possible. We were shown combs they made out of pigs bones that were nailed together and decorated!

We also learned lots about Viking weapons and armour. We saw a sword, axe and shield as well as lots of different types of armour! We even got to try some on! The rich people generally had armour like chainmail and metal helmets whereas the poor people just had axes as they were cheaper to make. We did find out that the axes were very useful as they were curved and lighter than swords and we really enjoyed the ‘battle’ between the two ladies! We all had a great and very interesting morning! Hope you enjoy our photos!!
