Some of the girls in Room 18 researched topics in Science and presented these to the class. We learned lots of interesting information on Space, the Solar System, Volcanic eruptions and the effects of chemical reaction when vinegar and bicarbonate of soda are mixed together. We also learned how to make a bouncy ball with an egg and some vinegar.
Four girls from Room 18 won medals recently in the Trim Community Games Art and Handwriting Competitions. Some of the girls went on to represent Trim in the Meath finals and Shauna came second overall in the Meath Handwriting Competition.
Well done, girls!
Today is 26th April and National Poetry Day in Ireland. We composed some random poetry in class to mark the occasion. Some of our poems rhyme, others don’t. We read our poems aloud in class and no two were the same. Here are some samples of our work!
About forty primary school pupils took part in County Meath’s Spelling Bee Final last Monday morning in St Paul’s National School, Ratoath. The event began at 11am and there was great excitement in the air. Our Spelling Bee Champion performed brilliantly during the tense competition and we are very proud of her. Comhghairdeachas!!
Our second Digital Fair in two years took place yesterday (April 19th) in the PE Hall.
