STEM Launch with the Minister of Education

We were honoured to have the Minister of Education Richard Bruton launch the policy and implementation plan for STEM in education in Ireland. Minister Bruton had the chance to talk to come of the students about what they have been learning in science and maths. Here are a few pictures from the day.

1916 Mind Rising Project

In Third Class we took part in a special project called Mind Rising. This was an exciting project in which we used Minecraft to create our very own 1916 exhibition. Our classes were split into different groups and we each were responsible for creating our own building. You can have a look at a short video of the world that we created below.

You can also see a presentation of our project below which explains a little more about what we did and learned throughout the project. We hope you enjoy looking at this as much as we enjoyed creating it!

Go raibh míle maith agaibh.

Unicorn cinquain

This is a cinquain poem that I wrote about unicorns. A cinquain is a poem with five lines. The first line is the title. The second line has two adjectives that describe the unicorn. The third line is three things that unicorns do. The fourth line is a sentence about unicorns and the last line is another word to describe the unicorn. I hope you like it!
