Week 8 - Happy Halloween!

There was loads of Halloween artwork on display around our school this week. Take a look!


We had a very busy week this week in room 9! We had a Halloween recipe competition with Darragh Ryan (1st) , Stephen Hallinan (2nd) and Stas Ionesi (3rd) taking the prizes!

We learned the poem "Mid-Term Break" by Seamus Heaney, learned all about volcanoes and watched the DVD "Volcano" with Tommy Lee Jones.
We also learned about the skeleton and the names of the different bones of the body! We topped off the week with a lovely display of Halloween silhouettes!

The two 5th classes studied "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe and did charcoal sketches in response to the poem! Take a look here at a webpage dedicated to this famous poem, including a video, a slideshow, some old artwork and a Simpson's version of the poem!!
