The boys learned all about 2D shapes in a variety of ways during the month of December. They went on a 2D shape hunt, used Geo boards on the I Pads, designed some Artwork masterpieces and created lots of 2D shapes using matchsticks and blue tac. Lots of learning and lots of fun!

As part of the An Post initiative to combat loneliness in elderly people, 4th class decided to write letters to 5 different nursing homes in Galway. The boys wrote about their hobbies, what they are learning about in school, their usual Christmas traditions and how they will be celebrating Christmas this year. We hope that their letters will be appreciated and of some comfort for elderly people in these difficult times. Maith sibh a bhuachaillí!

The boys have worked very hard to publish their first piece of writing as part of the Writing Workshop. They spent lots of time researching a topic of their choice and used non-fiction texts and the I pads to find out lots of information. They put lots of detail into their writing and their illustrations. Fantastic work boys!
