3D Shapes

 

The boys and girls in Ms Molloy's Second Class have been learning all about 3D shapes in their Maths lessons. A 3D or three dimensional shape is a solid figure, object or shape that has three dimensions - length, width and height. They have thickness and depth, unlike 2D shapes.

During their Art lesson this week, the young students enjoyed making their own 3D shapes using cocktail sticks and marshmallows. They were very inventive and managed to make many of the 3D shapes they've learned about.

Schooltime Shoutout


20201211 115209 - copyFor those of you who travel to school by car in the mornings, you might listen to the radio on the way. If you listen to Breakfast with Doireann and Eoghan on 2FM, you'll have heard the Schooltime Shoutout. Children from all over the country are asked to sing a small tune about themselves and their school, to the melody of the 'Can-Can'. On Tuesday this week, Cian Gavin from Mrs Byrne's First Class was delighted to be one of the lucky boys and girls to be chosen! Cian sang...

Save Dublin Zoo!


save dublin zooOn November 18th, you may have heard the news that Dublin Zoo was in danger of closing after being hit badly by the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions that came with it. The popular tourist attraction launched the 'Save Dublin Zoo' fundraising campaign, appealing to the Irish public for help! The campaign hopes to raise vital funds needed to cover the cost of caring for over 400 animals. It costs over €500,000 each month to feed, house and provide the animals the highest standard of care they deserve. thanks for donatingAs a registered charity, Dublin Zoo relies on ticket sales for almost 90% of their funding so having to close their gates due to the restrictions results in a huge loss of income.



The animal-loving students in Mrs Connaughton's Second Class were devastated when they heard that the zoo might close. They immediately decided to raise some money to help! Every day, the children arrived in with donations big and small. One student, Jamie Ella emptied her piggy bank and brought in a very generous sum! Bit by bit, over the course of the week, the boys and girls arrived in with whatever they could donate. Mrs Connaughton is so proud of the children and you can imagine her delight when she counted the donations today and realised that €150 was collected. What a great achievement! Well done guys.





The children are pictured below holding the 'Save Dublin Zoo' posters that they designed.
