1st Prize

I came first in the INTO handwriting competition!  My name was called out and I had my photograph taken.  Then my school was entered into a competition and I won a €100 euro book token for our school!  We got a bag of sweets at the end, it was so much fun!

Our class entered the Doodle for Google competition!  We had to create our own doodle with the theme I wish…!

Last week our teacher received three envelopes in the post from Google!  We were so excited!  Inside were letters and certificates for three children in our class.

Amber, Rosha and Cliodhna have reached the semi-final of the competition!  After the 23rd  of January their names will be up on the http://www.google.ie/doodle4google/ website.  Congratulations girls!

2nd & 3rd Class

We were thrilled with the news, we got a certificate and a letter!  I drew and underwater scene with loads of fish, Cliodhna drew a doodle based on musical instruments and cooking utensils as she loves music and cooking! Amber drew a doodle based on a girl on holidays.

We created a Christmas collage based on the Poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.  We used fabric for the rug, stockings, Santa Claus and Santa’s toy sack.  We created the rest of our collage with card.  It was great fun, we hope Santa likes them!

We drew a fruit bowl from observation.  Then we coloured it in using waterpencils.  We looked at where the light was on the fruit and we tried to use shading techniques with the colouring pencils.  We made the colour darker by adding more colour and less water.

 

We talked about the season of winter.  We learned about the different types of
weather we have in Ireland during winter.

We looked at some real winter scenes and some winter paintings
on the whiteboard.  They were beautiful.

Then we created our own winter scene and we painted it!  We took some photos of them.

 We made this house at lunch.  Half of us worked on the walls and the other half worked

on the roof.  We were very proud of our house!

On Tuesday, the 4th of October, we went to the hall to do a maths treasure hunt using QR codes.  We have an app on our Ipods called i-nigma.  We used this app to unlock the maths questions.  We had a sheet to write down the answers.  We had great fun.

We have spotted QR codes on a number of items like a Dunnes Stores value clubcard, a presidential candidate’s leaflet and a dairygold carton!
