Recently Mrs. Janet Gore and Mrs. Mary Fleming retired from their posts in St.Louise’s school. Both ladies had worked diligently as cleaners in our school over a long number of years. During their time in St. Louise’s they made many friends and they will be greatly missed. The staff and students of the school thank them for their contribution to the school and wish them well in their retirement.
The prompt this week was a picture:
Here is Kelsey’s 100 Word Challenge:
I was out with my friends and I surprised them with a boat party in the woods. They were so excited for it and so was I. We went home and got ready and invited everyone. Everyone met up at the woods and the forest was decorated with lights. Everyone showed up and it ended up to be the best party ever. The next day we all work up in boats and talked about everything from last night.
Senior Infants have been learning about the Brent Geese.
This week we were looking at the work of Jackson Pollock
For the past month, we have been learning about World War 2. We did lots of different activities in order to learn about the different events between the years 1939-1945 . We did group projects on different milestones that led to the Blitz, we completed acrostic poems, we learnt about the events of D-Day, the Holocaust and Adolf Hitler. My favourite thing we did about WW11 was the art work centered around the Blitz. We used pastels to create the sunrise effect and black paper to create the buildings and airplanes. They turned out really good and you can go see them outside Room 21.

Here in 6th Class, Room 21 we are learning about 3D Shapes. We learnt about their physical properties, about their relevant 2D shape and about 3D shapes in the world around us. We learnt about the following shapes:cube, cuboid, cylinder,sphere,cone, triangular prism, square based pyramid and triangular based pyramid, tetrahedron, octahedron and pentagonal prism. We also made our own 3D shapes using both the net of the shape and with cocktail sticks and marshmallows. We had so much fun! Check out our display wall where we show all our learning.
