Senior Infants have been learning about penguins this month and on Thursday they drew some beautiful penguins during Art. Their teacher, Mrs. FitzPatrick, is looking forward to hanging their work up in the classroom!
A long but rewarding day out last Saturday for our Prep School boys.
Our Senior Infant boys were particularly excited about cheering on their team at the Sciath na Scol Football Final as it was their first outing on a school bus! Each boy was partnered with an older boy who made sure they got to their seats safely, both on the bus and at the GAA grounds. The boys were particularly pleased that they got to sit at the top of the bus on the way to the match! Their teacher, Mrs. FitzPatrick, was very proud at how sensible they were throughout the excursion. They were really well behaved and joined in with the rest of the school as we cheered our team to victory. Well done Senior Infants!
Our 3rd Class boys have also been a busy bunch. Take a look below at some of the activities they did with their teacher, Ms. O’ Donovan.
The boys enjoyed practicing their passing skills in football with Miss O Donovan. Great fun was had calling for the ball and looking to see who was free. The boys showed excellent observing skills and quick thinking. It was lovely to hear them being so encouraging towards each other. Future Cork Footballers in the making!
The boys also spent time in October learning about the Solar System! They used oils pastels to create their own solar systems. Here they are hard at work.
In the lead up to Halloween 3rd class listened to the Halloween poem “Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth Toast”. They then worked in groups to create their own images of the poem. They worked cooperatively and creatively in making their master pieces.
Well done rang a trí!
Our 4th Class boys have had a busy month. Take a look below to see some of the enjoyable activities that took place in October.
Their teacher, Ms. Kenny, took them to Cork City Library where they spent the morning with author, Alan Early. They received a tutorial on comic book writing. Sai was our comic book model. Each boy then created their own comic. They really are a very talented creative writing group. Everyone really enjoyed the excerise.
During maths lesson, the boys put their books away and went out to the yard where they used their body lengths to measure the yard as a team. This cooperation game is designed to develop teamwork and also uses their maths skills.
The boys have also been enjoying GAA and Rugby training in Lansdowne. Luckily the weather has been very good so far this year. Ms. Kenny reports that they are making great progress.
Finally, the boys created some great Autumn art in class. Here are some of our budding young artists at work.
