Ms Keating’s 2nd Class

We recently held a writing competition in our class to finish off our narrative writing unit. Each story was unique and captivating and we had some amazing illustrators showcase their talents too.
Ms. McAdden judged our published books and prizes were given for best cover design, best illustrator, best handwriting and two awards for best story. The winners in Room 15 were Masa, Ryan, Leon, Majus and Jessica. Well done to everyone!

Stirring up a Storm in 4th Class

In class we created our very own rainstorm when we were learning about clouds. The three cloud types we looked at were cumulous, stratus and cirrus. We recorded the cloud type every day for a week in our copy and we predicted the temperature in Mullingar, Oslo (Norway) and Sydney (Australia)

We created a rainstorm to see how rain falls from the sky. We made some clouds using shaving foam. We made the rain using blue and red food colouring.

We added the rain using a dropper. When we first added the food colouring, nothing happened. This is just like clouds in real life. The water builds up in clouds and when the cloud gets too heavy it starts to rain. After more food colouring was added the rain began to fall from the clouds and we could see it in the bowl!

Then we decided to add lots of food colouring and we created a rain storm where the rain covered the bowl and came down really fast as the cloud couldn’t hold it any more.

We were all really excited watching this experiment. We predicted what might happen first and then we wrote about what happened in our copies.

Vibrations in Room 12!!
By Victoria Nwamo

On the second of December Room 12 did an experiment on vibrations. So Ms. Keating got all the objects and materials ready. She needed a tuning fork, a transparent jar of water, boxes, bottles, basins, the interactive whiteboard and lots more.

The classroom was divided into 6 stations and we went around in our groups doing experiments at each station and writing up a report about the experiments. After we all picked our favourite experiment!

I hope you enjoyed my report!

Merry Christmas from Fernando and all of Room 12 😀

Matilda by Dylan O’Brien

We are learning about Matilda in class. Our teacher is reading a book to us and we made comic strips. We’re going to post five online on our

website. We know that Matilda adores reading books. In the house of Matilda ,things don’t always go as planned. In one of the chapters,  Matilda

superglues her dads hat. We all think Matilda is interesting and very exciting. We love listening to our teacher reading it. Matilda even scared her

entire family with a parrot. I really enjoyed it. Roald Dahl must of thought really hard to write Matilda.


These are the 5 winning comic strips showing one of the tricks Matilda plays on her family…
