October in the Senior Room

This is just a snapshot to what we did in October, we took part in the Mini 7s and did very well. Michael Bell from the Heritage Council of Ireland arrived to our class with some unusual friends and we went on a trip to a bog over in Glengad. The Junior Room were welcomed to our classroom for activities such as Halloween Art, Maths Games and making headbands for the Killcommon G.A.A Football match. We are continuing to read our class novel and our English Stations are going well. In Gaeilge bhí gach rud bunaithe ar “An Scoil agus Oíche Shamhna”. In Maths, we enjoyed our Maths Trails this month and we completed all our work on Averages and Data. The Human Body is still being discussed in Science and we tried to capture what our local village would have looked like 100 years ago. Some great pictures were drawn. Everyone dressed up for Halloween and because the children are working well with their Tin Whistle, Angela has given them the task of getting to grips with “Rattlin Bog”.

Senior Room September 2022

The Senior Room would like to Welcome; Chris, Lorcán, Aisling D, Aisling C, Peyton, Annabelle, Emma and Ella to our room. Throughout September in Gaeilge, we focused on Mé Féin agus An Fómhar trí Scribneoireacht, leitheoireacht agus teanga béil. We enjoyed our Lá Gaelach.Míle Buíochas do Mhúinteoir Deborah!! In English, we are busy working away on our “Narrative” stories and hope to surprise the Junior Room soon with some of our creations on Book Creator. We are currently reading and discussing our class novel “Goodnight Mister Tom” and can not wait to see how the story pans out. On Tuesdays, Múinteoir Ailish joins our room for English Stations where there is a particular focus on spelling strategy, dictionary work, reading aloud and grammar attack. We use the chrome books also during this time. In Maths we got to grips with Busy at Maths, Mental Maths Wave and even have Better Maths for homework. We like to test our mathematical thinking so Múinteoir Diane also has introduced Target Boards and Brainsnack. This keeps us on our toes with the final ingredient of our Maths lessons “Buzz”. Múinteoir Lisa has explored plants and animals in our environment with us as part as SESE subjects. We also got to carry out an experiment. In History, it was back to Story and we took some myth and legends and modernised those. We got to be creative and design posters for various events in those stories. We had to take time out and watch the Queen’s funeral, it is  part of our history as we are living now. Angela has begun teaching the tin whistle and the children are working and practicing on the Scale of D. Our Artwork will be uploaded to seesaw so you will be able to see that, but for now, it is displayed throughout the school.
