We had a great morning orienteering down in Murphy's Farm today. Thank you to Sean Cotter and the Cork Sports Partnership for facilitating this fabulous activity for our 3rd classes.
Challenge: Build a bridge that spans 20cm using only paper and paper clips. The bridge must be strong enough to hold 5 cubes.
We got there in the end!

The boys did a great job presenting their engineering projects to a local visiting engineer last Thursday. He was very impressed with the boys ideas and their prototypes. We have now submitted our projects to Engineer's Ireland. The boys put a huge effort into their projects and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting them in this endeavour.
2 dental hygienists called to our class this morning to talk to the boys about dental hygiene. Here they are learning how to brush their teeth properly.

Wishing you a very safe and happy Halloween break! The boys put their shading into practice this week. Well done boys.
It's official! Seeds need good soil, light and water to grow.
Hurdling, long disatnce running, javelin throwing, shotput and long jump. There's nothing these boys can't do!
Today we worked on shading in our art lesson...
The boys were delighted with the fabulous gifts they got from the R.S.A. They have mastered the Safe Cross Code dance after a lot of practice!
Fun at maths time.
Lights, camera, action!
The boys set up their first experiment, we are testing what seeds need to grow. Watch this space!
The boys learned how to draw an accurate portrait this week. We scaled out the shape of the face using guidelines and then added the features. To give the effect of looking a mirror, the boys mounted their portrait onto tin foil covered card.
Great work boys!
