As part of our SESE topic "A Paper Trail", we have been studying recycling and how paper is made. Through this we have examined ways in which we can save paper and reduce and reuse the paper we have in school. Our student teacher Miss Kerr has been teaching us all about this and we made our own paper from recycled pieces of paper.
During Term 2 we were concentrating on print. We used pointilism to celebrate the start of spring by creating a piece of are based on Vincent Van Goghs famous "Sunflowers" painting.
We also celebrated World Book Day in March so we designed a cover, from our favourite books, which we all enjoyed reading.
All classes from 3rd to 6th class were invited to the annual Tullyallen NS race day. We had trials for all those interested in the school and 6 boys and 6 girls were chosen from each class to represent our school.
We had a hugely successful day with all our groups performing very well.
3rd class boys and girls won their team race and contributed to our school winning the overall event. Huge congratulations to all involved.
To celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, our school decided we would wear "Lots of Socks" of odd colours. The initiative is part of the ''Lots of Socks'' campaign begun by an organisation called Down Syndrome International, to encourage people to start a conversation about diversity, uniqueness, inclusion and acceptance.
Rang a 3 were very lucky to have a group of firemen call into our class today. They spoke about the importance of being aware of all the dangers that are in our house and at school. They also told us to work out a fire escape route at home and at school in case of fire. They then showed us their fire safety equipment and the fire engine. Thank you for visiting Rang a 3.
Scoil Naomh Buithe always take part in the Shoe Box Appeal. We make a shoe box full of items to help those in poorer countries who are less fortunate than ourselves. These shoe boxes will make their way to Malawi in Africa and we hope they get plenty of enjoyment out of them and have a wonderful Christmas.
