Art Class Kandinsky Circles

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 23rd November 2017

During art class we did some art using the kandinsky art style. We all had fun doing it. You get something like the top of a milk bottle and put it in paint then you press it on a page and then keep doing that with different colors. Everyone did one and we enjoyed it.

Halloween Holidays/Fancy Dress

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 20th November 2017

On Friday the 27th of October, we got our Halloween holidays from school. Everyone was allowed to dress up. I dressed up as a robber. My classroom took a vote to see  who had the best costume. When the  scores were counted up, we found out that the winner was Ben. He got a blue star for his team. We played bobbing for apple and it was really fun.

Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 20th November 2017

This year we took part in the Christmas shoe box appeal. Everyone brought in a shoe box full of nice stuff like toys, toothpaste, tooth brushes, colouring books and colours. They all went to children in places like Africa. We did this last year and we got to see pictures of children opening the shoe boxes. We collected about 49 shoe boxes.

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 17th November 2017

On the 19th of October our school had a meeting for the Gaelbhratach. The members are Maire Chau, Lachlan O’Shea, Lucy Griffin, Finn Barton, Lily Mae Clifford and Bart Flynn. We talked about what we did a few years ago to get our last flag and what we could do to make the school better by bringing Irish into our everyday subjects or speaking it on an everyday basis.

Halloween Story Competition

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 17th November 2017

On the 2nd of October we started our Halloween Story Competition. We had to write between four and five hundred words. The whole classroom entered  the competition. It was for the Kerryman newspaper. Castledrum have had great luck and success in recent years. We all handed in our stories an the 10th of October. Each one of us had to bring in two copies. One copy of it was for the classroom presentation and the other was to enter. All of us had very good stories. Ellen designed a poster that said “Our Halloween Stories. Tirna helped her.
