We painted with bubbles today to make these unique backgrounds. We finished the piece by making our own vase of flowers.
We were delighted to open Ballymun in Bloom this year and even happier when we got ice creams! :)
As part of the Children's books awards we read lots of excellent books written by Irish Authors. We then voted on our favourite book which had to be "Anna Liza" by Eoin Colfer. We thought this book was really well written. There were parts of the book where we were all laughing out loud! When we heard we were going to get to meet Eoin Colfer we were over the moon. Here are some pictures of our trip!
After learning all about the Titanic we were curious whose fault it really was that the ship sank. Was it Thomas Andrews fault? The man who designed the ship and decided on using cheap steal to build parts of the ship and who did not want to clutter the ship with too many lifeboats. Was it Captain Smiths fault? The captain of the Titanic who insisted on sailing at full speed to prove it was not only the biggest ship at the time but the fastest. Was Captain Lords fault? The captain of the California who turned off his radio and dismissed the flares that went into the sky above the Titanic. Lastly, was it the crew on the Titanic that is to fault? They did not know how many people could fit in the life boats and only half filled them, leaving hundreds of people left on the ship. We took a vote and here is our result!
This month we decided to do show and tell. We got to bring in our favourite toy or book and talk about it. Then our classmates asked us questions and told us what they liked about our presentation.
Here's a sneak peak at our video for our play on Thursday. We had lots of fun filming and editing it. Three more days till we're on the stage! :D
We certainly do not want to be called energy guzzlers!! So we're going to turn off the lights and the TV when we are not using them. Our new way to save energy is to wear extra clothes in the house so we don't need to turn the heat up so high! We played a game to see which team, the boys or the girls, could layer up the fastest.
