Conor visited my office yesterday to show me his book creation.  He had written a story and drawn pictures to match the sentences.  This Junior Infant is certainly going places.

Well done Conor.

1st Class Made a Pottery Piece and some Pizzas on School Tour

The boys in 1st class were very excited this morning when they boarded the bus for Midleton.  They visited a pottery studio where each of them made a piece of pottery out of clay.  The pieces must be fired in the kiln at 1000 degrees Celsius for about 10 days so they will have to wait a while before bringing it home.

They then went to an Italian restaurant where they learned some facts about Italy and how pizza is made.  They made their own pizzas which were eaten hungrily.  They were delicious.

A great day was had by all.

Light, Art and iPads (1st Class)

This week the boys were looking at how light only travels in straight lines. They made shadow puppets and traced some silhouettes. Then they filled in the outlines with pictures of their favourite things. They tested out our new iPads to find pictures for sketching.

Cork Butter Museum

3rd class visited the Cork Butter Museum in Shandon today. The boys learned about the history of the butter trade in Cork in the 19th century and watched a butter making demonstration. We enjoyed the butter with some tasty brown bread back at school. Thank you to Carol Anne for coming with us today and for kindly dropping in the brown bread!
