Newtown Blues, Louth SFC Champions 2017

Last Friday, 20th October, we were lucky enough to meet Andy McDonnell, captain of the Newtown Blues, winners of the Joe Ward Cup 2017. The boys had plenty of questions for Andy about GAA, his training and dedication to the his chosen sport. Hopefullly this will inspire our boys and we will see them return in years to come to share their stories of success.

They needed to figure out what size of a square the whole class could fit into.

A square of area 2m² lefty us with space to spare.

We discovered that the entire class fit into a an area of 1.5m².

 

Grassheads!!!

The boys of G4 planted grass seeds in socks and then filled them with soil.

The Grassheads were then watered and placed in the window so that they could soak up the light and heat from the sun, which  they needed to grow.

We watered them regularly.

We arrived back after the weekend and found great heads of hair/grass on them.

The boys had great fun styling the Grassheads hair!!

The boys also created 2-D and 3-D shapes using playdough and matchsticks in Maths class this week. This tested our patience and put our problem solving skills to the test!

 

 

G4 Sock Snowmen

G4 have worked hard on making their Sock Snowmen and they really have turned out well.

Hopefully it will be  a decoration that will appear year after year in their houses at Christmas.

The children have also produced fantastic wintery pictures using chalk and charcoal.
