In November and December we learned about remembering the dead and learning about saints such as St. Thérése of Lisieux whose motto was 'do the little things with great love'.
We made coloured in stained glass pictures and held a prayer service to remember the dead. We also got to make our own single decade rosary beads using string, paper crosses and colourful beads and got to practice the 'Our Father' and 'Hail Mary' prayers using our rosary beads.
Happy Christmas from 1st Class Room 15!
We made rainbows of hope to celebrate and mark the things we did at home during lockdown, the things we are looking forward to back in school and things which we are looking forward to once lockdown is over. They were so much fun to make and such a colourful addition to the hall too!
This year Engineers Week took place from February 7th - March 5th. One of the things which we did in the classroom to mark this week was making bridges using copybooks, textbooks, paper and coins. Our goal was to see how many coins (weight) our bridges (made from paper) would hold without collapsing. We really enjoyed this activity and it was amazing to see all the different ways people went about making their bridges stronger to support more weight!
From all of us here in Room 15, Happy Easter! We made beautiful bunny rabbit headbands to mark the occasion.
After Easter we started doing G.A.A. football coaching with John and this will continue until June. We have been improving our catching and kicking skills, as well as our teamwork skills
