Here in Room 15 we’ve settled in to the Senior School! We’ve been busy getting to know our new school and teachers, as well as getting to know more about our class mates. We made family trees during one of our history lessons. This helped us get to know some of our family history, and got us chatting to our grandparents and parents about our families. We shared our family.
In room 6, we have done different activities that help us look after our well-being. We have made colourful posters showing things we are grateful for. We have displayed them on our well-being wall with pride. We also complete our Gratitude Diary in class everyday which helps us to remember the good parts of our day. In art, we created our own unique stones which we painted and wrote positive.
Here in Room 5 we have spent the first few weeks of school creating a comfortable and respectful classroom environment. We have spent some time learning about the different organs and systems of our bodies. The class even used balloons to investigate their own lung capacity. We look to continue using creative innovative ways to learn over the coming months to keep our learning as fun as possible!
We spent a lot of time working on our “Write a Book” entries this year. We planned, drafted, edited, and published our creations. We worked in our classroom, the computer room and at home and added drawings and designs to add to our stories. We sent them away and a class in another school read our books and wrote comments at the back! Well done to Grace and Matthew who.
Our class visit to “Draíocht” Last month, our class went on a tour to “Draíocht” beside the Blanchardstown shopping centre. Our class walked down together to the centre. We walked through Coolmine Woods with Ms. O’ Mahoney and Ms. Reidy. When we arrived at first, the lady showed us around and we were able to see different artwork in the “Draíocht” gallery. There were different acrylic paintings, abstract art, portraits.
5th class blog Our school tour. On Friday 31st of May, all the fifth classes went to the National Sports Campus to do different sports and swimming. We got the bus at 8.45 to go to the National Sports Campus. It took 15 minutes to get there. When we got there, we went into the building and the boys and girls were put into two different groups. The boys did.
At the beginning of January our class took part in the BT Primary Science Fair. 44 primary schools took part this year from 17 different counties. St Francis Xavier 3rd class was the youngest primary school class to present at the event. Our project aimed to find out why we see optical illusions. From experiments and research carried out in school, we discovered four reasons why we see optical illusions..
Back in March, Room 15 were given the chance to do some planting with Brian. Each of us planted some sweet pea into compost trays and learned about the different ways we could help our plants grow. Brian then told us that if we looked after our plants properly, they could grow as high as 3 feet. This week Room 15 went back to our plants and it was truly.
