Learning about Similes

09/02/2013 19:03

Senior Room pupils were learning about similes during the week. We learned that similes are comparisons between things using the words "like" or "as",  e.g. "as good as gold". We also listened to Lenka's song called "Everything at Once" as it contains a lot of Similes. Ms. Farry recorded us on Audioboo singing along to it. Have a listen to our first Boo!

Senior Room starting to "Scratch"!

16/01/2013 23:12

Senior Room Students in Cloughfin N.S. are embracing Scratch this week and are really enjoying it!

So What is Scratch?

"Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art.

As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively."

Bit by bit, pupils are being introduced to this wonderful programming language and through collaborative learning and creative thinking are beginning to create their own animations. Ms. Farry has added a new page to the website www.cloughfinns.com/learning-links/scratch/ which contains some tips and our first scripts. We will be adding more to this page over the next few weeks, so watch this space!
Caitlin, in 6th class, was the first to have her script added - great for a first attempt!!


Tweeting to Space

12/01/2013 15:20

On December 19, 2012, Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield launched aboard a Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS) where he will live and work for five months as part of the crew of Expedition 34/35. We are following him on Twitter. He sends tweets from space and takes amazing photos from the spacecraft. Ms. Farry shows us some on the photos on the Interactive Whiteboard. During the week we saw photos of volcanoes, rice fields in Japan that were covered with snow and the bush fires in Australia. We even saw one photo of Dublin Bay taken from space. We also sent our first tweet to  Space on Wednesday.

Next week we will look at the official Canadian Space Agency website www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/missions/expedition34-35/default.asp and we will also follow Chris's blog www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/missions/expedition34-35/blog.asp

The Junior Room designed their own Rainbow Fish and have a lovely display in the corridor. More photos can be seen on the Junior Room Page.
