Pupils from 3rd to 6th class continue to be busy with a variety of new projects! Here are some recent learning activities from the Senior Classroom...

Science Week and Maths Week 2019

Senior Room pupils got to experience life as third-level students recently, with two trips facilitated by the Maths and Science Departments at DU Kevin Street. The children got to complete practical Problem-Solving challenges and participate in a "Beautiful, Biased Brain" psychology talk. We hope they all went home full of new facts and enthusiasm for these subjects! 

Country of Choice Project

3rd to 6th Class studied Japan as their country of choice this term, and we really enjoyed examining some artefacts brought in by the pupils and their families, as you can see! The children painted beautiful Japanese landscapes as part of their study of this country, inspired by the work of Japanese artist Hokusai.

The standard of Homework projects continues to impress, with pupils shining in their creativity, research and presentation skills. We have gained fascinating insights into different places of Historical interest, been wowed by Design skills, got motivated by projects and podcasts about the people that inspire us, worked out to a variety of Circuit activities and completed many a Cuardach Focail! Keep up the great work, and thank you to all the parents for your involvement and emails.
