We are very proud of our children in our School's 50th Celebrations this week . Everyone worked super hard preparing for our beautiful Mass and our show! We loved learning Old Belfast street songs. We remembered a very special teacher Mr Eamonn O'Faogaín who always sang and taught these songs to P2 and P3 children. We enjoyed our party in school on Friday and we listened to Q Radio and we heard Ibe Sesay tell everyone about our very special school's performance. He said we were good enough for the Grand Opera House in Belfast!!!!
We sang Happy Birthday to our school and we ate lots of sweets and birthday cake! A big thank you to our amazing parents who helped us prepare and celebrate our very special school!!
Happy 50th Birthday to our amazing school!
Our class raised an amazing £94.55 for Trócaire! We did an Easter ballot. A big thank you to everyone who helped us raise this fantastic amount. Everyone got an Easter treat but look at our very lucky winners who won the lovely ballot prizes!
We celebrated World Book Day! Look at our amazing costumes!
We are learning all about 'Keeping Healthy'. Myla's daddy came in to talk to us. Marc is a PE teacher and he told us about eating at least 5 fruit and vegetables a day and how to keep fit. He also talked to us about how important it is to keep our minds healthy.
We got a special treat. Myla and her mummy had made everyone a yummy fruit kebab!
We used different materials to create a 'jungle' collage as we listened to some jungle music with Miss Forde.
Leeanne from Mindful Explorers visited our class this week. We sang some songs and relaxed. We thought about our feelings using our senses and some yoga!
We had fun outside enjoying the lovely sun.
We have been learning all about 'Hot and Cold' in Primary 2. We have been looking at animals who live in hot and cold lands and finding out how to keep warm in Winter. We have had lots of fun experimenting with adding heat and cold to different materials and predicting their change. We made Rice Krispie Buns and Pancakes.
Rice Krispie Buns! Yummy!!
Look at our amazing Ice Trolls! We all had special names for them. We used different materials to see which Ice Troll would melt first and last. We put them in different places in our school as well. We all used our predicting skills very well.
In Science Starz we experimented with different types of metal to find out which metal was the best conductor. We used copper, brass and aluminium.We put a chocolate button on the top of each piece of metal and placed them in a beaker of hot water to find out which chocolate button melted first! We loved this experiment because we got to eat the buttons after!
We have been learning all about shapes with Miss Forde.
In Science Starz we used magnifying glasses to
look closely at all the parts of the flower. We can name all the parts of the flower. We had to take the petals of carefully and we made perfume!
It was great fun!
Today we were learning all about solids and liquids! It was great fun investigating in our polytunnel!
We even got messy hands when the solid turned back into a slimy liquid.
