We have being learning about Greece in Geography and Ancient Greece in History. We looked at various aspects of the country including food, culture, flora and fauna. We are currently working on travel brochures as part of our homework so check back soon to see how they turned out. We looked at some of the famous architecture of Greece such as the Parthenon - an old temple. Have a look at some of the things we covered.
Children in 2nd and 3rd were very lucky to attend a workshop facilitated by Fighting Words in Dublin. We were treated to a true writing and editing process. We were tol throughout the workshop that we were 'authors'. It was an incredible experienced and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Each child was able to take home their original draft, illustration and a copy of their own book. Thanks to Sara and the rest of the team at Fighting Words.
A big thank you to Ms. Beattie who came in to teach us all about coding. They had to create a line of code to instruct the Minecraft character to get from one point to another. There were various level and the children went through many of them. 2nd and 3rd class really enjoyed the session. Some of the children did even more coding when they went home.
