For Active School Week Room 7 had a wonderful yoga lesson with Rebecca's mom, a swim in Meadowbrook, designed Active School posters and much more!
As part of 'International Fairtrade Fortnight', we all took part in a huge fairtrade assembly organised by Ms Sharkey. Fourth class introduced the assembly and spoke about fairtrade. Then pupils from each class presented a selection of their work to the whole school. Infants painted and drew fairtrade logos and some pupils even designed their own. First class designed and coloured in fairtrade fruit baskets with fairtrade fruit only! First and Second class designed fairtrade posters with brilliant slogans. Second and Third class researched fairtrade farming and designed very artistic posters with slogans. Fourth class wrote fairtrade recipes with fairtrade ingredients and made a recipe book! Fifth class researched fairtrade, designed powerpoint presentations and performed very informative dramas on fairtrade.
Sixth class researched fairtrade fashion companies and shops that sell fairtrade clothes. Their presentations were most interesting and gave us all lot to think about before we buy again. The assembly concluded with a lovely song composed by Ms. Sharkey entitled.....Ceannaigh agus díol fairtrade! We all really enjoyed the assembly. Remember to look for the fairtrade logo and .....buy fairtrade. Enjoy our fairtrade slideshow.
Enjoying the Sports Day activities and having lunch outdoors in the summer sunshine.
Senior Infants have been learning all about Africa using the stories Handa's Hen and Handa's Surprise. We really enjoyed using our senses to explore the tropical fruits - banana, mango, orange, avocado, pineapple, guava, passion fruit and tangerines. They were delicious!
Thanks to Ms O'Neill for sharing the "You'll Never Beat the Irish Thai Tims" song with all of us. We had great fun learning and performing it all together, it really got us in the spirit for the EUROS!
