We had a wonderful experience working on our scientific projects for the exhibition. We enjoyed engaging with all pupils in the school.

One Book One County Project: Monaghan County Library
We recently participated in a project organised by Monaghan County Library. Along with pupils from 40 primary schools within the county, we read the book ‘The Guns of Easter’ by Gerard Whelan. This historical novel gave us a wonderful insight into life during the Rising, through the eyes of twelve year old Jimmy Conway. We finished the book before the Easter holidays and enjoyed it thoroughly. We look forward to exploring the themes in the book with a visit from a librarian. Frances Quinn, a renowned Irish scealai will recount tales and stories of Ireland to us. An extremely worthwhile project.

A Mothers’ Love’s A Blessing
We dabbled in the art of flower arranging to create floral centre pieces for our mothers.
We read limericks and studied their rhyming patterns and rhythms. We then went on to write our own.
We studied Daniel O’ Connell and Catholic Emancipation in our history lessons. We displayed information in a mind map.

Vincent Van Gogh
We are learning about The Netherlands in our geography lessons. We looked at and responded to the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. We used Starry Night to inspire our own paintings.
Fingerprints follow 3 fundamental principles:
A fingerprint is an individual characteristic; no two people have been found with the exact same fingerprint pattern.
A fingerprint pattern will remain unchanged for the life of an individual; however, the print itself may change due to permanent scars and skin diseases.
Fingerprints have general characteristic ridge patterns that allow them to be systematically identified.
We enjoyed making fingerprint rubbings and identifying the patterns.

An Gorta Mór
We have studied An Gorta Mór in our history lessons and are currently reading Under the Hawthorn Tree. When tragedy strikes their family, Eily, Michael and Peggy are left to fend for themselves. They embark upon a courageous journey to find their aunts, a story which almost makes history some alive. We can’t wait to finish it!
