What a busy and fun term we have had!
In English, we are reading the novel Holes by Louis Sachar. We are also completing lots of activities on it. We are enjoying the story of Stanley in Camp Green.
In Maths, we are enjoying our stations every Wednesday. This has made Maths and problem solving fun! Everyone loves Maths on Wednesday!!
We did lots of Christmas Art during the month of December. We loved getting creative!
In STEM, we completed the skier challenge. We planned, designed and engineered a skier that could stand on skis. This was a super fun challenge that we loved doing.
We did Secret Santa in our class again this year. We put lots of thought into our gifts and had so much fun opening our presents.
There was great excitement in our class on the 14th December, after Limerick winning the All Ireland Hurling Final. We decked ourselves in green and got a night off homework to celebrate.
We had great fun deciding on the name of our gnome. In the end we choose Bing Bong!!
We have had a great term and will be looking forward to a new year.
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Welcome back to another school year! We were so happy to be reunited with all our friends.
The past couple of months have been very busy settling back into routines. We are all working so hard in our pods.
During the nice weather, we took the opportunity to read outside and enjoy the sunshine!
In PE we completed obstacle courses. We all encouraged the other members of our teams.
We have been very busy doing lots of art activities. We recreated our favourite emojis and drew some portraits. We also took inspiration from Vincent Van Gogh and recreated our own Starry Night.
In English we have been working on making predictions and recount writing. We particularly loved ‘One Boy’s War’ by Lynn Huggins-Cooper.
We loved dressing up for Halloween and supporting the Butterfly Club in Rathkeale. We had a super fun day together!
Stay tuned for more updates!
Slán from the 6th class bubble!
On Tuesday 4th February 2020 5th & 6th class participated in their school workshop of the LEAF (Learning about forests) programme run by an Taisce.
This was run by Niamh Ní Dhúill, who taught us so much and planted trees with us in the school garden area. We explored all the products that can be made of wood and we explored our native trees and ‘special guest’ trees that are in Ireland.
Niamh also kindly brought in frog spawn from her own pond that we looked at and showed the rest of the school.
In the afternoon we planted bare root trees in the garden. 6th class were busy digging while 5th class gathered twigs and grass to keep the protective cardboard in place.
We were so lucky that it was a sunny and dry day.
We had a brilliant day and thanks to Niamh for such a super fun and educational workshop.
On the 28th January 2020, 5th & 6th class participated in the DELL VEX IQ Primary School Competition in DELL Limerick. This is a unique school project that gives pupils their first opportunity to learn about engineering and robots. Hundreds of pupils participated all bringing STEM skills to life with their designed and built robot to play against and with other teams.
With the help of Úna Murphy & past pupil Jason O Shaughnessy we were competition ready!
Amy, Willie, Stephen, Justin, Micheál and Kian were the designated drivers for the day!
We had a super day out and loved participating in the competition.
Thanks to Ms Quinn and Catherine for coming with us on the day.
