November 2018
In the month of November our class was very busy. Some of our class took part in indoor hurling. Our class learned about women's votes and we drew posters on votes for women. We learned about the eye and the ear and we did a few tests on our eyes. We did map reading. We looked up maps of the area on the internet and identified our homes. The new printed off a map of the village and marked places on it, as we walked around the village with compasses directing. Our class created a scarf dance dancing to Night on a Bare Mountain. It was great fun. We went on a walk in the yard listening to sounds and writing down how loud they were. We played Away in a Manger on our recorders

October 2018
We had great fun in October. We went to Bunclody tech for the open day and it was very interesting. We decorated buns, did an Irish quiz, looked at the laser maching in woodwork, played the ukulele, tried to heat up a ball and put it through a ring, and played games in the hall. Mr Townsend came for a few weeks in October. We did lots of drama and other subjects; he also helped train the football team. We had lots of fun in maths week. We made a chair out of newspaper and two boys sat on it to see how long it could hold a child's weight. We also did math homework we had to see how tall every one in our family is. We made a worry monster with Mr Townsend. We got into groups and did a project on different people from the Renaissance. We learnt a Hallowe'en song called Ghosts in music, and performed it in rounds. It was fun doing actions and learning the lyrics. We were learning about counties around Ireland and also did a fun game on the computer to see how well we knew the counties. We learnt all about our skeleton in science and also did a fun computer game on that as well, where we had to put the bones in the right place to put the body back together again. The boys' and girls' teams from our school got into the football final; the boys against Kildavin and the girls against Old Leighlin. In art, we did op art. This is based on optical illusion and usually has repeating patterns. It can sometimes make you dizzy to look at it. On our last day, we all dressed up and you can see the pictures here.

September 2018
September was a busy month. The gardens looked great when we came back so we all tasted the lovely ripe apples. We did lots of art. We did paintings to remind us of our summer holidays and we cut pictures of the holiday countries out of them. Most of us stayed in Ireland. We also considered people with disability, and did art based on that. Someone Like Me was the name of the theme. We also did a lot of work an fabric and fibre. We started with appliqué. We cut out shapes of hearts, bows, llamas and tractors out of coloure felt and stitched it onto black felt. They looked great.

The children who didn't play in the football matches did knitting when we stayed behind. The footballers were very busy. The boys won against Myshall and lost against Kildavin. The girls lost against Myshall and won against Kildavin. We were busy with music too. We learned the song After the Gold Rush and started playing the recorder again. We've been working on Three Blind Mice. In PE we did Athletic activities involving running. Since then we've been swimming, and many children took part in the cross country running. We even did gardening and planted some winter flower boxes. In English we wrote folktales. They were very enjoyable. In history we learned about the Renaissance.
