In 5th and 6th SPHE classes, we have been discussing Mental Health issues over the past term. We decided to highlight the importance of talking to someone if we feel upset or anxious about anything in our lives, no matter how big or small. Sometimes, we carry sadness inside us and it is not good for our mental health to bottle things up. It ALWAYS helps to talk it out with someone we trust.
Here is our short film called 'Don't give up, Speak Up!'. We hope it carries an important, strong and hopeful message to everyone who watches it.
Special thanks to Hannah for being a great editor, to Sarah for her fabulous acting and to Lily for helping us to film some scenes.
We celebrated the Children's Book Festival with a very enjoyable art workshop at Louisburgh Library with Steph Troy. We chose a phrase from a favourite book and used it to inspire our mask paintings. Thanks to Mary and Steph for hosting and working with us. Delighted with our creative masterpieces!
Bhaineamar taitneamh as bheith ag déanamh drámaíocht sa Ghaeilge. Rinneamar drámaí a bhí bunaithe ar an téama 'bia'.
On Friday 22nd September, the autumnal equinox day, we planned to do an experiment with some new friends in Spain. However, this day was very overcast in both countries, so that meant we had to postpone it until Monday, 25th. We both measured the length of the shadow cast by the sun on a vertical meter stick a number of times and at the same time in our school yards. We will be able to calculate an approximate radius of the earth once we link up with our friends in northern Spain. Here we are at work..
