Irish Aid Awards – Room 8S

Published by under 4th Class,General

Over the last few months, Room 8S have completed a project based on the United Nations Global Goals (Clean Water and Sanitation; Life Under Water). This is part of the Irish Aid Development Awards which seek to achieve global access to clean drinking water by 2030. We learnt about the effect that pollution has on human, animal and plant life and then we surveyed the senior school on their awareness of water pollution. We then spoke to some classes about what they can do to conserve water, and put together an action plan so that we can work together to save water. The title of our project is “Water Heroes – Save Water, Save the World!”

14s- I have a dream….

Published by under 4th Class,General

This past few weeks, Room 14s have been learning about influential people from around the world. One of those people was Martin Luther King Junior. Today we discussed his ‘I have a dream’ speech and we thought about our own dreams for the future. We had some great hopes for the future such as:

-To be a famous artist

-To end world hunger

-To discover the cure for Alzheimer

-To put an end to homelessness

-To create a more equal world

Here are some pictures of the boys and girls holding their hopes and dreams!

Lighting Up with Kindness in Room 16s

Published by under 4th Class,4th class blog

With our two week holiday from school fast approaching, the boys and girls in Room 16s have been thinking about all the kind things they could do to “Light up the World with Kindness” while they’re not in school.We had some lovely ideas including: donating money to people in need, helping parents and family members keep the house tidy, help to make dinner, walk pets for neighbours, and even buying presents for people who don’t have very much this time of year. Room 16s certainly will be busy over the next few weeks!!

Learning all about Maori People in Room 16s

Published by under 4th Class,4th class blog

Over the past number of weeks the children in Room 16s have been learning all about the Maori People in New Zealand as part of their History lessons. After all of their hard work, fact finding and researching, this week they got to make their own Maori masks during Art! The children learned all about Maori face tattoos and how all of the symbols have different meanings; for example they used symbols to represent their names, their position in the tribe, and even if they were married! The children designed their own symbols first, representing some of their favourite activities, their families and their class. Then they painted these symbols onto their masks with some very steady hands! The end results were fantastic, and you can see them hanging up outside Room 16s in the Senior School. Be sure to ask the children all about them!
