We have been learning a lot about Viking culture and beliefs. We had a class debate about who our favourite Viking God was and Thor came out victorious. Our very own Adam Brown created this amazingly detailed image of Thor.

Mr Green comes to Filthy Land

                           Written by Conor, John and Ralph from third class.

                 This story is an adaptation of ‘Mr Sneeze’

This is Filthy land, which is a county in the west of Ireland. The streets in Filthy land are filled with garbage all of the time. You cannot even see one speck of the ground.  Because it’s so filthy in Filthy land, everybody smells. You can tell if somebody comes from Filthy land because everybody has garbage on them. In Filthy land, even the animals reek of garbage.

This is the story of Mr Filthy, who lived in a pile of garbage. Every day Mr Filthy got up, tripped over some waste, got up, went downstairs, tripped on the stairs because of the rubbish, got up, tripped again, went into the kitchen and tripped again making his breakfast because of the garbage on the floor.  He was constantly tripping up. ‘I don’t like all of this garbage’ said Mr Filthy. One day he decided to leave Filthy land and try to find a way to clean up Filthy land.

As he walked away from Filthy land he noticed that there was less and less rubbish on the ground.  Eventually he walked so far that there was no rubbish on the ground. For the first time in his life he wasn’t falling over. Not at all. Not a bit. Not even the tiniest fall. ‘I wonder why I’m not tripping up and I don’t smell as bad?’ he thought to himself.  Suddenly out of nowhere a wizard called Mr Green appeared. ‘You’re not tripping up because there is no garbage on the ground. You are not as smelly because you are not surrounded by garbage’. ‘Can you come back with me and help me clean up my land?’ said Mr Filthy. ‘Yes, of course I will go back with you and help you to clean up your land’ said the wizard.

 Mr Green, the wizard, took out his wand and flew them back to Filthy land. Before you could say the word filthy both Mr Green and Mr Filthy were transported to Filthy land. ‘I say this is a stinky, disgusting world that reeks of garbage’ said Mr Green. ‘Filthyland needs to be cleaned up’, said Mr Green. ‘And that’s going to take to some rather special wizardry skills to clean up this place’  ‘Now’ said Mr Green, ‘I’m going to do some wizardry skills and I want you to shout the word stinky three times immediately afterwards’

Suddenly Mr Green did some wizardry skills and shouted some magic words that nobody except him could understand. At the same time Mr Filthy shouted out the word ‘Filthy’ three times. The rubbish all started to disappear. Filthy land became clean. You could actually see the ground again. Mr Filthy and all the other people were no longer stinky. The animals and all of the people could walk around now without tripping up.

Before Mr Green left, he reminded the people of Filthy land to never ever put litter on the ground, to put the litter into the correct bins, to pick up garbage if they do happen to see it on the ground, recycle the goods that should be recycled, re use paper that can be reused, re use bottles to plant seeds in them, put the glass bottles into the correct bins and put the skins of the correct food into the compost box. Everybody, because they followed the rules remained clean and they all lived happily ever after.

The End.

Christopher Columbus sets sail for the 'New World'.

The class have been learning about Christopher Columbus over the past few weeks. I thought it would be a good idea to base an art lesson on the travels of Columbus. We decided to create our own portraits of the Santa Maria ship. Some of our portraits have some slight improvements to the original ships, as you can see. The above pictures are a selection of the excellent and imaginative designs.
Enjoy!!!

My name is John Doyle. I am in third class in Scoil Chiaraìn. I love learning new and interesting facts.  Today, my fantastic teacher, Mr Kavanagh, taught third class all about Meath. I am now going to tell you five interesting facts about Meath. Cool

 

1: The River Boyne flows through Meath.

2: The River Boyne is famous in history. One of the most famous stories associated with it is The Salmon of Knowledge. Fionn Mac Cumhaill, the leader of the Fianna, was the first man on earth to taste the fish.  He was filled with knowledge.

 3: A long time ago, Meath was referred to as a province of Ireland. The High Kings of Ireland used to live there. Meath is often called the Royal County.

 4: The Meath players wear green and gold.

5: Newgrange is in Meath. Newgrange is an ancient burial location.
