Our School Tour to U.C.C.

Today the senior room went to an art workshop at the Glucksman Gallery in UCC. There was alot for us to see and do. In the art gallery there was a HUGE painting made entirely out of NUTELLA! Then we went into this huge transport lift to the art room where there were four tables named after the Hogwarts houses - Griffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and of course my house, Hufflepuff. Then we went outside to have our lunches and we took some pictures around the college and took a walk down the hall with the ogham stones. We then went into an empty lecture room and 5th & 6th did a mini-debate. We then went back to school for a bit - it was a great day!

Elf @ Ashton

We went to Ashton on the 18th January to see Elf. We didn’t have a bus so we had a brisk walk all that way to Ashton. It was worth it though! The Ashton students put on a really big show. Some old St.Micheal’s students were in the play like Aidan, Scott and Abi. We had lots of fun up in Ashton and on are way back we saw Joe and Romy and Jack playing football on the astroturf. We said hello to them. We had a great time at Elf and everybody had a smile on their face.

Space Week

For space week 4th class, myself and a friend did a project on the Solar System. At first we thought we were supposed to draw the planets but the next day we figured we were supposed to draw them on a separate sheet of paper and then cut them out. We drew the rings with black crayon and then traced them with pencil. It looked ‘out of this world’.

Book Review - Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs I loved this book ,so much that I could not put it down and I read it in one day (mostly night.) In this book you go into the mind of Jacob Portman, a sixteen year old boy whose best friend is pretty much his grandad. So when suddenly his grandad dies in his own back garden Jacob’s life goes out of control . The police say it was wild dogs that killed his grandad but Jacob saw something that night. Something that wasn’t human. When Jacob was a kid, his grandad told him stories of peculiar children, that his grandad went to live with when he was a child, on an island in a big beautiful house. He told him the stories using old photos
