4th, 5th and 6th Classes have created their own books, as part of the Write-A-Book Project, organised by Blackrock Education Centre. This annual event celebrates the talented writers in our school and gives the children the opportunity to experience the writing of children in other primary schools in Dublin. It is a fantastically inspiring event and all children have thoroughly enjoyed the process and have learned a great deal along the way!
Orlaith’s 6th Class and Katy’s 2nd Class have been sharing their love of books and reading by coming together regularly to do buddy reading. This has been a fantastic opportunity for both classes to develop literacy, social and leadership skills and the children have greatly enjoyed the experience. It is anticipated that these sessions will progress further and lead on to some collaborative creative writing experiences before the end of the school year!
We have been learning all about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and also about the UN Charter of Children’s Rights. We decided to create our own Human Rights quilt to represent them. Doesn’t it look great?
Sixth Class have been embracing the cold winter days and have been using their creativity and imaginations in many different areas of school life. In P.E., they tried a Human Winter Tree relay race. The object of the race was to decorate their team’s winter tree with as much P.E. equipment as possible, in the fastest time. There were also points awarded for creativity and collaboration! It was good fun and helped to keep us warm!
