The children in room 4 have been very busy over the last few weeks. We have been working on our oral language skills and made our second presentations of the year this week. This time we had to speak at the top of our class infront of everybody. We had to speak for 45seconds about something based on the theme of winter. Some presentations included children speaking about Why they love Christmas, Winter time animals, Trying to catch Santa & Christmas in the country I come from. We had to remember to use good presentation skills – having good eye contact with our audience, standing still and speaking loud and clear. We also enjoyed giving each other two stars & a wish after the presentations were made. After Christmas we will be working towards speaking for one minute or more!!

Some of the children in room 1 wrote about their trip to Sligo On Ice:
On Tuesday the 19th of December, the children from room 1, room 12 and room 11 went ice skating at Sligo On Ice in Stephen St. car park in town. – Kelsey & Miya
We have been planning to go to Sligo On Ice for the past three weeks. Each week we had to earn 15 dojo points. In order to get dojo points you have to do your best in class,be a good listener, be ready to work and have a tidy table. When we counted them the day before ice skating, we had enough dojo points.The day finally came and everybody had to have a jacket, track suit bottoms, long socks, gloves and a spare change of clothes- Donald & David
We left at 11AM and we walked up the hill. Teacher said there was a surprise. We kept walking past the skating rink and went to the 4 Lights for chips! After that, we walked to Sligo On Ice. We got some ice skates and put on some helmets. They gave us the safety instructions and then we got on the ice. Some people slipped and fell, and some people were holding onto the wall. Then we all got the hang of it and soon everyone was skating all around. Even some of the teachers! – Mikey & Rachel
When we got off the ice, we went over to the seats and took off our skates. We got back into our pairs and headed back to school. We really enjoyed skating and would really recommend it to anybody. We would love to do it all over again!-Tiffany & Shayna

On Tuesdays, we go over to the IT and the students there do some P.E. activities with us.
My class walked over to the IT. When we got over to the IT there were coaches. We went to our section and the coaches told us their names.
Afterwards we all got split up into teams. I was with all my friends. I was really happy!
Me and my friend Kelsey were on a team together and the game was to get all the beanbags into your hoop. Whenever all the beanbags were gone from the middle, we had to steal each others.
Later we swapped sides and played Simon Says and I was so good at it! Afterwards we played handball and my team won. We were Team Green.
When we had to go we all said bye and thank you. I had the best time ever!

In room 1, 4th and 5th class worked together on a collaborative art display. We each took a quarter of a circle shape and first sketched a design on it, then painted it, on our own. Each one of them on their own is quite small an interesting, but when we put them together, they certainly make a pretty picture. Just like us when we work together as a team!
