Environmental Awareness in Room 8

Mr. Sheekey’s 1st Class have been learning about how to take care of our environment. We learned about how to ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’. We used construction toys and then recycled materials to create pieces of Art. Some of us recreated famous constructions like the Taj Mahal, the Statue of Liberty and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We also created robots, monsters and many other unusual objects! We used lots of different 3d shapes like cylinders, cubes, cuboids and spheres to make our creations look interesting and to help them to balance.

We also worked together to make posters reminding people in St. Kevin’s to take care of our environment.

Middle Assembly – May the Month of Mary

Children from 1st-3rd Class will gather for our next Assembly on Friday. Prizes will be given to the winners of our Attendance awards and we will hear news from each class.

As May is the Month of Mary, we will  sing the song ‘As I Kneel Before You / Ave Maria’ during our Assembly.

AS I KNEEL BEFORE YOU

As I kneel before you,

As I bow my head in prayer,

Take this day, make it yours

and fill me with your love.

 —

Ave Maria,

Gratia plena,

Dominus tecum,

Benedicta tu.

All I have I give you,

Every dream and wish are yours,

Mother of Christ,

Mother of mine, present them to my Lord.

Ave Maria,

Gratia plena,

Dominus tecum,

Benedicta tu.
