Highlights of the Year

As we approach the last couple of days in 4th class……….


…..we are reflecting on the wonderful year we have had. What was the highlight for you?


The highlights of the year for me were the Junior Spider Awards because it was a great day out and fun to present our blog to the public, the Scratch projects, a really good coding programme that was challenging and cool and Claymations because it was awesome to be making movies!!!

Thanks Ms. Fay for the great school year!!!

My highlight of the year was our blog.I loved the great games on it and I liked posting comments.  I loved how I could interact with other kids in my class even though I’m not really chatting with them.

My highlight of the year was our Claymations Project. I really liked making the characters,creating the background and taking the pictures with the tripods.However, my favourite part of all was watching the projects back when all the parents were in the audience!!!                                                                                            

 Many thanks to Ms Fay who helped us!

I have really enjoyed 4th class with claymations, double computers , our school tour to Dublinia and especially because of our great, kind and very creative teacher Ms . Fay!!!!!!!! ; ]

I really  enjoyed our P. E. classes especially the dodgeball and rounders. I also liked researching on the Internet for our projects on St.Brigid, The Ryan Family and The Solar system!

The best was the claymations project! It was so fun making the characters and taking the pictures and best of all watching them in our private screening!

It was the best year EVER!!!

Word of the Day – 10th June

The Word of the Day today is “lithe”.

I located it in my book  Myths and Legends’ by Anthony Horowitz.

Lithe means to be slim and flexible. For example, a gymnast would by very lithe, or a dancer.

Word of the Day – 7th June

Today’s word is “conventional”.

I found it in my book “Necropolis” by Anthony Horowitz in the sentence, “It might not be conventional but it was clearly for the best”.

To be conventional means based on or in accordance with what is generally done; following social conventions; not individual or adventurous.
