Recycled Robots

After the Christmas holidays, we started to gather and collect lots of recyclable materials that we could use to create a robot. We worked together in groups, planning and preparing, sketching and constructing, until we were happy with our new creations. We like that each robot is unique and they even seem to have their own fun personalities! Some were inspired by the recent Star Wars movie and we also have a chef, a ‘homework robot’ (very handy!), some party robots, personality robots and a Hawaiian robot!! We had great fun making them!

St Mary’s feature on PAGE 2 and 3 of The Sunday Business Post

Bua na Cainte is a brand new Scéim Ghaeilge. It is being used in our school and has many ‘buanna’ (advantages). All our classrooms have interactive whiteboards and the new scheme lends itself perfectly to be used interactively by the children. The featured article in the Sunday Business Post dated January 24, highlights the use of ICT in education, and specifically in the teaching of Irish in our school. The Scéim itself is visually stimulating and is enhanced by lots of catchy tunes as Gaeilge. Ms Dalton and the children in Room 9 demonstrated a lesson for the journalist and he was very impressed and even learned cúpla focal!!

Winter Wonderland

The girls in Room 18 created a Winter Wonderland frieze. Every girl designed her own house and we then added in people, trees and street lantern for a very seasonal effect.

The girls in Room 18 really enjoyed making Snow Globes for Christmas. We recycled Christmas cake decorations and old jars with lids . White silicone was used for the snow and to place the figures in position. We added some water and sprinkled in some white glitter for the snow effect. Then we sealed the jars with more white silicone.

The girls were very proud of their work and some globes were given as Christmas gifts.IMG_2931IMG_2932IMG_2935

Science Week 2015

Pupils from Second and Third Classes in St. Mary’s Primary School attended a very entertaining Science workshop in Trim Library on November 11th. We were treated to a combination of Science and magic with Dr. Ken’s ‘It’s All Done with Mirrors’ show. This was an interactive workshop where we learned about mirrors, gravity, balance and air pressure. There was great participation from the girls in St. Mary’s and we really enjoyed the show.IMG_2842IMG_2843IMG_2860IMG_2868IMG_2870IMG_2873
