Mr. Foley’s class went to visit Sealife as part of our Discover Primary Science project. Sealife is a SFI Discover Centre in Ireland. It was the first time some of the pupils had made the short trip to Sealife and everybody had great fun there while learning about what lives in the sea both in Ireland and abroad. While we there we learned all about the different types of fish in Irish sea water, as well as tropical fish that can be only found in Ireland in the centre in Bray. These tropical fish need warm water to survive and our seas are too cold for them. Luckily, some of the tanks in Sealife...

On Thursday April 14th, Mr. Foley’s class made their much awaited trip to Dublin Zoo, a designated DPSM Discover centre, as part of the school’s application for this year’s award. Adam, Luke, Patrick, Nathan K, Nathan O’B, Arturas, Jordan and Johnny all made the trip and for many, it was their first time to the zoo. It was a day they will never forget, and was the perfect mix of learning and fun. We were very lucky that all the animals seemed to be very energetic and the crowds were not too big as we spent almost 3 hours walking around and learning about each of the animals. Johnny’s...

Today in Ms. Keating’s class we made a ‘Get Well Soon’ card for Adam who broke his ankle over the midterm. We can’t wait for Adam to come back to school. It is just not the same without him. We hope you like your card Adam and see you soon. 🙂

We had so much fun practising our handwriting using blood quills in Ms. Keating’s class! A blood quill is a dark magical object. It is a type of quill that does not require ink, as it writes with the blood of the person using it. Harry Potter used this in detention in the 5th book: The Order of the Phoenix. This week in Ms. Keating’s class we got the opportunity to practice our handwriting using our own home-made blood quills (a quill and a red pen). It was so exciting writing with red pens. We took our time to make sure we could write as neat as possible, we even had a practice...

In Ms. Keating’s Class we are learning about procedural writing. We have been focusing on recipes for the last few weeks. Last week we made frozen strawberry yoghurt and the week before we made jelly. This week we learned how to make butter and today we got the opportunity to make it in class. All you need to make butter is cream, a pinch of salt and a jar. The method is simple: Pour the cream into the jar. Add a pinch of salt and close the jar tightly. Shake the jar for a few minutes until the cream separates. Open the jar. Remove the butter milk from the jar and place the butter on a...

We chose to write a piece from Roald Dahl’s  “The Twits” because we have been reading it in class and love it! We did not even do a practice piece, Ms. Mitchell entered our very first attempts for the competition. It was so long ago that we entered, and we kept asking and asking if we had won anything yet, it was hard work waiting! Finally this week, the good news arrived! We could not believe it when Ms. Mitchell said that we had four winners in our class this year! We are extremely proud of all of our classmates for entering and winning! Each winner got a certificate and Ms....
