By Zara (5th class)
Today was a very exciting day in 4th and 5th class as we had a class trip to Letterkenny as part of Wainfest 2014! Our First stop was Donegal County Museum where we learned all about World War 1, particularly how it affected people from Donegal and their involvement in the war. Next stop was Letterkenny library where we relaxed and read some books and finally we attended a cartoon workshop by Jarla. We really enjoyed ourselves!
We have completed our Halloween Art. It was a two-step art project. First we painted our backgrounds, blending different colours to make a sunset. After it dried we used black card to cut out silhouettes and stuck these onto our backgrounds. Here are some pictures of our work.
We finished reading Billionaire Boy by David Walliams as our daily read aloud. We really enjoyed the book and we have written book reviews on it! We are currently reading Demon Dentist by the same author.
Cheerios Childline Breakfast Morning

A Visit From The Old Courthouse
Today we had some visitors from the Old Courthouse in Lifford. They told us all about what would happen to people who broke the law in Donegal in the 18th and 19th century. It was both fun and educational!
History of Money
4th and 5th class have been learning about the history of money. We have also been learning about how bartering was used before money. We looked at money from different countries around the world and how it differs from the Euro.
During September 4th and 5th class learned all about Pompeii. We learned about the history of Pompeii and how volcanoes erupt. Using clay we made volcanoes and cities and in Science we used baking soda and vinegar to make our volcanoes erupt, just like Mount Vesuvius! During our assembly we talked to the rest of school about Pompeii and showed them our science experiment! Here are some pictures from different stages of our project!
