Quavers to Quadratics
We have been participating in a programme run by the National Concert Hall called Quavers to Quadratics. Serena and Emily are music and science teachers who have been helping us to see the link between music and science. We had the change to go on a school trip to the National Concert Hall where we got to experiment with lots of instruments and science equipment. Throughout the day we tested how people hear, see, touch and create sound. Take a look at some pictures from our day out in the NCH!
As we have been working so hard all year and have tried to improve our attendance in school, Ms Kehoe rewarded us with a fantastic Drum Workshop. We had the chance to play different types of drums and some of us were given the opportunity to dance to African style music. It was a lot of fun!
WORLD WAR I
In history last month we focused on learning all about World War I. We had a lot of fun researching various topics from he Christmas Truce and the sinking of the Lusitania to life in the trenches and the famous battle of the Somme. We also had the chance to examine a number of different artefacts from WWI, completed dioramas of trenches and created Remembrance Day silhouettes. We then created our first project books and presented these projects to the class.
This month has started off with a bang!!!! We were visited by Irish athlete David Gillick today! It was a great opportunity to ask him lots of questions about his life, training and nutrition and we also had the chance to put his fitness to the test as he ran alongside us during one of our final Marathon Kids training sessions. We also started Irish Dancing on Tuesday and had lots of fun learning some basic steps. We cannot wait for next week!
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS to the Gaelic team and their coach Ms. O’Meara for winning the Cumann na mBunscol Final in Croke Park last Tuesday. It was fantastic to see their hard work and dedication pay off during the hard fought battle. A special well done to three of our own boys from 5th class (1). WE ARE THE CHAMPS!
October was an extremely busy month in H.C.N.S. It started with Friendship Week when we learned all about being a good friend and how friendships change over time, our assembly song Getting to Know You and created some beautiful artwork that you can see below.
As part of English (report writing, determining importance and other research skills) and S.E.S.E. we studied all about bats this month. We typed up our bat reports on our brand new Chromebooks and had a lot of fun turning in our assignments on Google Classroom. Take a look at some of the work we did over the month!
From 14th-18th October we took part in Maths Week. During this week we used learned all about x y coordinates and 2D shapes through coding, learned about symmetry through art and set up fun maths games on the yard for children from 1st-3rd class. It was a lot of fun!
