Some of our 5th class girls had fun making triangular pyramids at lunch time today out of play mats. And they made lovely cosy tents.
Second Class enjoyed doing the Hour of Code this year. Our coding was based on the Disney film ‘Moana’. Moana and Maui were attacked by the Kakamora. They had to approach the Kakamora barge, get on board and cut all the ropes to sink the barge.
We had to tell Maui how to get to the barge and cut the ropes while avoiding being attacked himself. We did this by dragging and dropping the orders telling Maui what to do, where to move, when to dodge, strike and cut the ropes.
The last lesson was brilliant. We had to invent a dance for the Kakamora. When you press run you can watch the dance. We made the dances really funny.
‘ I found out that coding is easy and really fun’. – Leah
‘It’s amazing giving the order and when you press the run button you see the character on screen carrying out your orders’. – Shannon
‘I thought coding was hard but it was really easy. If you make a mistake you just press reset and fix it’. – Bobby
This is what coding with Moana looks like. You can try Moana and other code themes at home using this link https://code.org/learn
Here is another puzzle for you to try. Don’t forget … all children who return correct answers to Room 11 before Friday will receive stamps
Ann takes €140 out of the bank. If she has 8 notes in total and 4 different types of notes, what does she have in her wallet?
In May our school won our 6th Green Flag – ‘Global Citizenship Litter and Waste’. A girl from 6th and a boy from 3rd who are on the Green School Committee got chosen to go to Claremorris to collect the flag. They had a great day out.
At the end of June our class had a presentation of reading certs which we won by doing library quizzes. We have enjoyed reading books in the library this year.
We worked on SALF folders during the year in 3rd class. SALF means – Self Assessment Learning Folder. During the year we put some of our best work into the folders to show to everyone. We had fun working in groups and looking at all the folders. We have pictures here of our class showing some lovely work which we are very proud of.
