Easter chicks

Look at the lovely Easter chick baskets we made in art this week!

Hurling with Ryan

We had a great hurling class this morning.
We played stuck in the mud and Simon says,
then we practised holding and swing our hurls before playing some hurling games.
We really enjoyed our lesson.

Solar eclipse March 20th, 2015

We learned all about solar eclipses in school yesterday so we were ready to see this one.
About half of the pupils in this class had brought cardboard boxes.
We put a pin prick in one side of the box and then could see an image of the sun (with the chunk gone out of it) on the other side of the box.  This worked really well.
We took turns so everyone got to see the eclipse.
Teacher also showed us how to see the eclipse by putting a pin prick in a piece of cardboard and then holding this in front of a sheet of white paper.  This worked the same as the boxes.
Teacher tried to take a picture of the eclipse without looking at all.  Disastrous!
In another class they had a special viewer.  We went to look at this but unluckily the clouds covered the sun just then so we didn't get a clear look.
We also kept an eye on what was happening with the eclipse by viewing a live stream on the whiteboard.  What an exciting morning!

Coding again

We really enjoyed our hour of code earlier this year, so teacher has put a coding game onto the ipad.
We practiced coding today using the ipad and our own whiteboards.
We are so proud when our coding works out well.


Ms. Geraghty has been growing frogs.
She has an education licence to do this.
What started as frogspawn has grown into little tadpoles.
She is going to release the tadpoles back into their pond before they turn into frogs.
We have been learning about the life cycle of the frog so we were really interested.

Solar Eclipse tomorrow

We can't wait to see a solar eclipse tomorrow (but we won't be looking directly at it!)

All about bubbles

We had a lesson on bubbles in our class last week.
Today we took the bubbles outside and looked at colours, how they fly on the wind, what they look like before they burst.  We loved this lesson!
