Rang a 4 – Seomra Chormac

Since we came back from the summer break the pupils in Seomra Chormac have been working very hard! Here are a few photos of all the boys and girls presenting their Geography projects to the rest of the class. The projects were on the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Well done Seomra...

Wascally Wabbits!

Elmur Fudd might have said it, but as we found out in third class this week, he wasn’t far wrong. There’s certainly a lot more to rabbits than meets the eye! As part of our English lessons, Seomra Aengus have been looking at reports on rabbits. Before we could begin our work, we needed to brainstorm everything we knew about rabbits. In our groups we recalled everything we knew. For example, we have two rabbits in our school, June and Mark. Some people in our class were able to tell us that a rabbit’s home is called a burrow. Next, we learned that rabbits are herbivores. Rabbits don’t eat meat, but prefer to eat plants and grass. Unfortunately, many animals (who aren’t herbivores) hunt rabbits for food. Foxes and stoats prey on unsuspecting rabbits. These animals are called predators. Finally, we read a report about rabbits, noting anything that we didn’t know before. We learned lots of fun facts. Did you know that baby rabbits are called kittens? Also, rabbits aren’t as fond as carrots as you might think. In fact, too many carrots can actually make them sick. We hope you enjoyed reading our post and watch out for more posts from our class. As a famous rabbit once said, ‘That’s All Folks!’....

Seomra Dhairmuid

Welcome to Mrs. O’Connor’s Second class, Seomra Dhairmuid! We’ve only been back a few weeks and we’ve been working so hard. We painted self portraits….. We met Mr. Skellybones and learnt all about the human skeleton. We talked about Autumn.  We walked around the whole school and mapped where everything was. We painted Autumn trees.   We are also reading George’s Marvellous Medicine with teacher and we have been having great fun with our Gaeilge practising our comhrá about Mé Féin. We were learning about the hundred square in maths. We’ll keep you...

6th Class doing Local Studies

The 6th classes have started taking a look at the local area. We have been discussing the changes that have occurred by looking at historical maps. We have been discussing the possible damage that has been done to the local ground and how we could protect areas from further damage through soil conservation, preservation and recycling. Also in looking at the local area, we have being working as tourist office workers in creating brochures to advertise Dublin 15 as a holiday destination. We have been also studying the industries in the local area and having a look at the history of industry in Ireland, from the Vikings to the industrial revolutions and cottage industries. Last week we set up our own weaving cottage industry and created beautiful woven crafts for art(As you can see in the...

Shocking Electricity!!

This month in 5th class we welcomed back our new bunch of eager students! They were delighted to be back…most of them anyway:) We have been having great fun experimenting with circuits in our science lessons. We learned that electricity flows through conductors such as copper and that electricity is supplied to our homes through the mains power supply. For our experiments, we built circuits in series and in parallel. We learned that electricity has only one path to follow in a series circuit but that it as two paths to follow in a parallel...
