Christmas in Scoil Mhuire

We hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas and we wish you all a very healthy and happy 2018.
We had lots of fun in school during the run up to the Christmas break. We sowed stockings, made gifts from clay and created our own wrapping paper. We sang at the Carol service and were very excited about Santa visiting. 
We're looking forward to more discovery and adventures in 2018.

Winter Trees

As a class, art is one of our favourite subjects. We love putting on our creative hats and experimenting with our pieces.
We created winter birch trees using masking tape, water colours, sugar and black crayon. We were delighted with how they turned out.

Science Week

"The most important thing, is to never stop questioning" Albert Einstein.

This week we investigated the topic of solids, liquids and gases in science.
We learned about their properties and characteristics and located them in our environment.
We predicted and investigated what will happen when we mix certain solids, liquids and gases together.
Here are some of them in action.
Ms. Kelly thinks the future is very bright with all the scientists in room 16!

                         The liquid test

The girls mixed sand, salt and sugar with water.
          What do you think happened?

 This group mixed corn flour, water and food colouring.  Look below at what they created!


 Things got messy when we mixed carbon dioxide,liquid and sugar. We made a hole in the lid of the coke bottle. We put some mints into the bottle and placed the new lid on top. Can you guess what happened?

We really enjoyed sci…

What are the chances??

Last week in maths we learned about probability and chance.
We learned vocabulary such as,
likely, unlikely, possible, certain and Impossible .
We created questions for our partners to answer and played a game of chance.

Happy Hallowe'en!!

We have had great fun in Scoil Mhuire over the last few weeks getting ready for Hallowe'en.
We had our green school fashion show on the 26th of October. Well done to everyone who took part. The creativity was fantastic.
We really enjoyed dressing up in our costumes on the 27th.
Wishing you all a safe and fun Hallowe'en.
