Our e-books

We have six new tablets in our school. We have been making e-books with them. We are writing about animals. We all got to choose our own animal. Most of us are working in pairs. The website we are using is First we chose what animal we wanted to write about. We had to know a bit about the animal. Then we made a front cover. We chose a picture, then we wrote our names and the title. Next we wrote a classification, then we wrote a description, after that we wrote dynamics. Finally we wrote a summarizing comment. We needed to put a picture on each page. They are not finished yet. When they are we will share them on the blog.

We've been learning how to code. We used the hour of code website to learn how to code. We found this website very handy for learning how to code. If you click on the links below you can see some of the work we have done.

The Dublin team came to visit Scoil Mhuire. They brought a big trophy called the Sam Maguire. A player from the under 21 team came as well and he brought another trophy they had won. 

This month we learned about Antarctica and Emperor Penguins. We read about Emperor Penguins. We wrote reports about Emperor Penguins. We learned a song about penguins. We made pictures of penguins. We drew chalk pictures of Antarctica. We read a book calledThe Penguin who Wanted to Find out. We made clay figures of penguins and painted them. 

Fun fact about Emperor Penguins: They can hold their breath for 30 minutes under water!

We have been very busy this month getting ready for Christmas. We wrote letters to Santa and posted them.

We learned all about Christmas and Santa Claus around the world. There are many different different traditions. For example in Italy presents are delivered on 6th January by a witch named Befana.

We were extremely busy in room 9 this November.

In maths we were learning about 3-D shapes. We enjoyed singing the 3-D shapes song:

We also made 3-D shapes such as cubes, cuboids, triangular prisms and square based pyramids. We used magnasnaps and lollipop sticks and marla to make these shapes. We also used cardboard nets of the shapes.

We were learning all about houses and homes this month. In art we drew our own houses and in English we wrote all about them. We also designed our own palaces, first we drew them and then we built them using magnasnaps and lego.

In history we learned all about homes in the past. We read about a boy called Jack who lived 100 years ago. We also visited The Round Tower Visitor Centre where we got the chance to look at a bedroom from 100 years ago. There was also a room with lots of old toys and clothes which we really enjoyed.

As part of our work for green schools, we had a low energy day where we couldn't use any electricity. We weren't able to use the interactive whiteboard, the computer or the lights. We want to save energy to help fight global warming. We were also thinking about the energy we use with our bodies so we were counting our steps during the final week in November. Room 9 had the second highest amount of steps in the whole school so we won the silver welly.
