0 World_Book_Day

Last week we had the school book fair which went great. We have two prizes this week as a thank you for supporting the Book Fair and all you have to do leave a comment on the blog saying why you like/love the Book Fair. Everyone who leave a comment will be entered into a draw to win a few books. We will have a winner from Junior Infants to first class and a winner from 2nd-6th class. Good luck everyone.

6th Class begin their Primary Science Project

Which animals have night vision?
Does your gender affect your vision?
What colours do dogs see?

This is only a 3 of our mind boggling questions just
waiting to be answered. Like what about “which can see
further, a mammal or an insect?” or “Does age affect
your vision?”

With all the answered and much more, at the official
ROOM 17’s amazing Primary Science website!
Coming to you and all soon! Don’t miss it!
For more details, see below.

4th Class at the National Gallery

Mr. McNeice’s 4th class visited the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin City centre today. It was a fantastic trip where we got to see some wonderful artwork. We had been studying Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso’s Cubism in class so it was great to see some of their work up close! A huge thanks to our tour guides Valerie and Daire and to Olive and Helen for helping us throughout the day.

We look forward to visiting the Gallery again to see some of their new exhibitions!

6th Class Trail of Greystones

Both 6th classes spent September studying Greystones: the history, the geography, the natural features, etc. This included a trail around Greystones, where Mr O Neill gave us a very informative tour. Back in the classroom, we took a closer look at old maps of Greystones, current maps of Greystones and Wicklow, and delved into the history of the families that were influential in making Greystones the place it has become.

Thank you to the parents who helped out on the day of the trail.
