5th class were the teachers this week in Glór na Mara for Science Week 2017. They set up a variety of science experiments for their ‘buddies’ in 1st class. Take a look at what they got up to!

The First and Second Classes (and everyone else in the school, pretty much) has been learning about the wreck of The Seahorse in the run up to the bicentenary on the 30th of January.  We took a walk to see some of the physical artifacts of the time and also to get a good view of the bay where it happened.  Thanks to our 1st and 2nd Class students for writing this report!

 

On Monday 11th January we went walking on the Doneraile Walk. On our way we saw the Coast Guard Station. Next we saw the Tomb Stone remembering The Seahorse. There were 393 people on board the Seahorse and 363 people died when the ship sank. Nobody is buried underneath this tomb stone. Our teachers took a photo of us and our class in front of the stone.

 

Next we moved on and we saw the canon and we looked out at the sea. We saw The Metalman. The Metalman was built to remind sailors to keep away from the rocks. The message the Metalman has is ‘Keep out Good Ship, Keep out from me, For I am the rock of misery.’ Brownestown head has two pillars to warn the ships of the rocks there too.

We then stopped at the Church of Ireland Church. We saw The Seahorse Memorial there too. Mr. Ó Cathasaigh and Ms. Dreelan gave us loads of information about it .

Ms. Dineen’s 1st Class took the iPads out and about last week in search of signs of Autumn in Glór na Mara. We took lots of photos and shared them on Twitter using the hashtag #AnFomhar. The Signs of Autumn 2015 Twitter Project was organised by @SeomraRanga and many schools across the country took part. 92 schools and teachers took part in the project, posting almost 400 Tweets over the course of the week. There was a great variety of stories, observations, images, photographs, videos all recording the arrival of Autumn 2015. Lots of classes posted images of Autumn-themed work that they were doing in the classroom, some of which were really creative and imaginative. All of the Tweets (including ours!) that had the #anfomhar hashtag over the last week have been included in the transcript which can be viewed HERE It is well worth reading.

We got a certificate for taking part! Follow us on Twitter for more 1st Class news. We are @MsDineensClass

We’ve been minding some eggs for George from Nore Valley Park as part of the incubator project.  One of the eggs hatched today to huge egg-citement.  We’re so glad to be involved in such an (ahem) egg-shell-ent project!

You can see the chicks live by following this link…

On Friday the 12th of June Glór na Mara took part in a fundraiser for Down Syndrome Ireland. We had an “Ice Cream Funday”. All the money raised will go towards the work of Down Syndrome Ireland. The children had great fun and there was a real party atmosphere on the day. Looking forward to next year’s event already!

20150611_092107There is going to be a fantastic harvest of Glór na Mara this year!

Pupils have been busy growing lots of different vegetables in their classrooms and we are starting to see the results outside.

Raised beds are quickly filling with vegetables that have been planted inside, hardened off and transplanted.  Keep your eyes open for our large array of herbs in the school garden. We love the smell and taste of fennel, coriander, parsley, chives, dill, mint, sage, thyme and peppermint.

Our lettuce heads are growing fast sewn from seed we saved from our lettuce plants last autumn. Carrots and potato are shooting up (and under) in tyres and recycled coffee sacks.

Peas,  beans and tomato plants are climbing the walls and windows of classrooms throughout the school.

See if you can spot broccoli, dwarf beans, beetroot, onions , courgettes, leeks, pumpkins  and strawberries around our garden! We also have some new scarecrows to frighten away our feathered friends!
