We wrote books for Ms. Halley’s Junior Infants. They are reading a book called ‘The Picnic’ so we wrote books for them using the words they know. The Junior Infants read the books we made, and then helped us to colour the pictures we drew.

The books are hanging on the wall in our classroom, and we are really proud of all our work!

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!

Our Walk on Wednesday Campaign!

Our Mr. O’ Sullivan’s 5th Class had a Walk On Wednesday campaign to encourage more children to walk to school.

We made ‘Walk to School’ posters in groups, one for each class in the school! It was lots of fun, especially when we added our favourite Disney characters to the picture! Some of the class also wrote their own lyrics, and with the drums in the background, it sounded fantastic!

After lots of practising, when the bell rang for the end of the school day, classes gathered round to listen to the music we had created. We did this every day at the end of the day and occasionally changed the tune. We’re sure that we got the tune into people’s heads, because a lot more children began walking to school!

After all that work, the fun still hadn’t ended! We worked together in groups to come up with ideas for mini plays to present to the other classes. The mini plays had, of course, a ‘walk to school’ theme, so we checked in the costume cupboard for costumes and outfits that might fit the roles and personalities of the characters in our plays. We found lots of suitable options, and practised for a long time before we perfected the plays.

Finally, when we were ready, we went down to the school hall to show the classes our hard work. The plays turned out to be a success, and the children (and even the teachers!) seemed to have enjoyed watching them! Now I am going to talk about the benefits of walking to school.

If you walk to school it benefits you by health, money and lots of other things. It gives you fresh air which awakes your brain, which makes you more alert for the morning’s lessons. It also saves petrol, which means saving your money. You will be more energetic and fit too, if you walk to school every day.

By Julie Clancy, Mr. O’ Sullivan’s 5th Class
