Film in Schools


Well done to Ms. Connolly’s 2nd class boys in Room 1. for their movie for the Film in Schools project. It’s called Teacher’s Pet and was written by the boys themselves based on a story from their English book.

If you want to check it out click on the Vimeo link below.

This movie has been shortlisted for an award at the Film in Schools showcase which will be held at the Helix in early November.  This is a national competition with a huge number of entries and only the top 15 films receive an award. More information will be sent home with the children shortly.

 

Food Dudes

 

We started the Food Dudes programme in Brunner last October and all the boys have been enjoying the challenge of eating their five portions of fruit and vegetables everyday. Now we have the harder task of bringing in and eating up our own fruit and vegetables.IMG_5128IMG_5130 IMG_5132 We still have lots of prizes and certificates to collect but our 2016 resolution is to eat our greens and stay away from General Junk!

Here are the boys in Room 1 enjoying their healthy snacks.

The Zookeeper’s Visit

On December 21st the youngest zookeeper in Ireland came to see us in the library in St Paul’s Secondary school. He is a past pupil of Brunner. He brought a few reptiles with him. His name was Mark Prendergast and he works in Dublin Zoo. He told us about reptiles. Reptiles are cold blooded animals. Most reptiles eat meat except land turtles. He told us about Brian the snake. Brian eats mice. He said that Brian had been damaged because his owner bought a bulb that was too hot and it burnt his skin. Mark warned us to be very careful when buying reptiles in a pet shop because you need to know lots about them so they can have a happy life. We were all allowed to touch and hold the snakes. They weren’t as slimy as we thought they felt smooth and dry.

He told us about the frog and when it is scared it would pee on its enemy to stun it! He brought in a lizard too with a long tail and scaly skin.

Many reptiles moult or shed their skin as they grow. Ms O’ Mahony was so scared that she ran to the back of the library. Mark told us that a kamodo dragon eats insects and plants. Mark loves being a zookeeper and we had a great time too!

Room 1 Bridges

Bridges can be big or small,short or long.  They can be made from wood or steel.  Bridges are built so we can get across from one place to another.  People can walk over bridges and cars can drive over them.  The span of the bridge is how long it is.  A bridge must be built strong enough to hold the weight of whatever is crossing it.  Some bridges have arches. The arch supports the bridge and makes it strong.  Bridges are sometimes built tall enough for boats to pass under them.  We built lots of different bridges with lego.  Some were very strong and could hold a lot.
