Procedural Writing and Making Smoothies

We are doing procedural writing in the senior room this month. This week we wrote procedures on how to make different smoothies. We had great fun and our smoothies were delicious too. 

Field Trip to Kildangan Stud

On the 22nd of September, the senior room went on a Field Trip to Kildangan Stud Farm in Kildare. We learned a lot about how a top class stud farm is ran. We got to explore all of the facilities, learn how to shoe a horse, meet some world class stallions and as part of our Green School’s project we looked into how the farm handles all of its waste water. We would like to thank Aimee who is a parent in our school for arranging this fantastic field trip for us.

Engineering Week – Lego Mindstorms

To celebrate ‘Engineering Week’ this week, we started a new type of coding/programming called ‘Mindstorms’. We have been using ‘Scratch’ coding for the past few weeks and this has been a great help in preparing us to use ‘Mindstorms’. The children built their own robots as part of the project and came up with there own codes which they used to control their robots. This was great fun and we aim to spend time every week improving our coding skills and building our robots.

Letter From Malawi

Tadhg in 5th class received a lovely letter from a little boy called Puaa from Malawi who was given the Christmas Shoebox which Tadhg sent away with the school’s Shoebox collection last Christmas. It was really brilliant to see first hand from the letter what an impact our annual Christmas Shoebox collections are making. Well done to Tadhg and all our pupils who contribute to this charity every Christmas.
