Our Young Writers Were Treated to an Inspiring Presentation from Famous Children's Author Jackie Burke!
Well done to our both our Third Classes who participated in the Laudate Festival in St Agnes Church, Crumlin on Monday 27th January. The Laudate Festival is a project of the Archdiocese of Dublin that builds a common repertoire of hymns in both schools and parish. The children were truly fantastic. They puts lots of energy and enthusiasm into learning the extensive repertoire. The girls and boys were treated to a pizza party in school to thank them all for their super achievement.
We welcomed Engineers from Jacobs Ireland on Friday to our class. We enjoyed hearing about their roles and work projects and they thoroughly enjoyed hearing about our projects. Our projects are based on creating engineering solutions to problems and hardships we see in our community. We really impressed them with our ideas, our team-work and our presentation skills.
The children in Third Class are at the planning stages of their projects for this year's STEPS Young Engineer Award. Working in groups, the children have identified projects they would like to do that would improve our community. Their ideas and enthusiasm are inspiring. We are looking forward to welcoming an engineer to our class on the 29th of November. Each group will have the opportunity to present their ideas and to learn more about the various disciplines of engineering.
We will check in soon to tell you about our projects and we will let you know how get on with our special visitor.
The girls and boys in Third Class made a fantastic effort dressing up for Halloween and all for a wonderful cause. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone in their costumes and strutting their stuff on the catwalk in our fashion show.
We have had a busy and satisfying start to our new school year in Third Class. The boys and girls have enjoyed settling back into school and are well into the swing of things. The classroom has been a hive of activity. Here are some of the things we have been up to.
This week is Resilience Week at St. Mary's. We have been doing lots of lovely activities to build resilience, wellness and self-confidence in everyone. We are learning about the importance of having a Growth Mindset, and how it impacts on our wellness.
Here are a few photos of us enjoying a yoga session with Mr. Joynt yesterday. We did a lot of work on breathing, calming and mindfulness.
Fáilte go Rang a Trí!
