The children from 2nd to 6th class ready to set off on their last trip to Claremorris where we have been attending swimming lessons for the past 6 weeks. A fantastic skill for children to acquire and one which they can carry with them all their life. Thanks again to Claremorris Swimming Pool staff for their hard work this term.
Pictured are the middle room with their flower creations which they made during Friday's art lesson. The children have been working with pencil, pastel and chalk to create beautiful flower themed artworks over the past number of weeks. By using the skills acquired over the past month, the children then produced some of their own flower creations.
Continuing with our work on comprehension and reading in the middle room today the children worked on their new Literacy Box comprehension activities, to promote their comprehension skills across the curriculum. Another fantastic resource to add to the collection.
Nearing the end of our "Magnetic Car" construction activity as part of our Discover Primary Science Programme. We have looked at magnets and the forces of push and pull and how they are used in the world around us. After this introduction the children then went on to design a cardboard constructed car that could hold a magnet to see of it can be pushed and pulled using only magnetic force. In their groups the children designed and made their cardboard constructions and we will be testing these nest week. Stay tuned for more!
Today the students in Mr Haran's room got a sample of what it is like to cast their vote at a polling station for an election. The children have been learning about elections all week and the processes which are involved.
Below are our two presiding officers ensuring our ballot papers are handed out and correctly stamped.
Below are some of out voters casting their votes in our polling booths
The polling station were so busy, these eager voters had to queue to cast their vote....
Thanks again to Mr Haran for educating us all on what goes on for the general election and how we cast our votes. It was great fun and we learned so much.
