5th & 6th Class


We have had a very busy and productive January and February in 5th and 6th class. It has been a pleasure getting to know all of the wonderful boys and girls in 5th and 6th class. 

For Maths we have been working on the topics of decimals, fraction, time and length.

In Art we created some interesting prints from recycled materials and painted them. We created some beautiful drawings to enter into the Texaco art competition.

As Gaeilge bhíomar ag déanamh an téama "ag siopadóirecht agus ‘éadaí’. Rinneamar dramaí agus comhraí béag  bunaithe are éadaí agus siopadóireacht.  

We are very proud of the beautiful stories the children created for the Write a Book project run by Blackrock Education Centre. In class we learned about the components of a good narrative, creating characters and tension in stories and the editing process. The children worked hard on their first drafts in their copies. The children then edited, typed and illustrated their books. Well done! We are looking forward to looking through books created by other schools and reading their stories.

In PE we worked on the strand of athletics working on running, jumping and throwing. While in SPHE we talked about healthy choices for our bodies and how to say no to bad choices. 

In our outdoor assembly we led the school singing the hymn this month- 'Ask, seek, knock

We had a fundraiser pyjama day to end a wonderful January and it was SO much fun to be dressed up in our comfiest pjs.

In SESE we learned about the 1916 rising, young people who changed the world and the sustainable global goals. We had a visit from Trocaire Ireland in February to teach us about the goals. We were interviewed for International Women’s Day.
