Welcome back everyone! We are delighted to be back in school this year. Everyone is working very hard in school. In art we explored our favourite colours and created fabulous pieces. We also drew some "selfies" which was great fun!! On Friday the 15th September we celebrated International bread week. We baked lots of bread and we sampled bread from all over the world. It was super tasty!!! The boys took part in the boys football league 2017. They played great as a team with Ned leading them as captain. The girls also took part in a football blitz In Mick Neville park with Lauren leading as captain. GAA skills have started as well. We are learning new drills and skills from Seán the trainer. Zumba with Avril has resumed and it is super fun on a Friday! We are currently working on our countries project so check back to see our amazing work!
Here in 5th/6th Class we are counting down the days to holidays. 6th Class are preparing for their big move to secondary school.
This has been a very busy year. We received our Confirmation in February. We took part in Peace Proms along with lots of outdoor activities.
6th Class did a wonderful job organising the Pancake Morning. They worked very well as a team to ensure a fun day for everyone else in the school. We had a super day out at U.L for our annual Athletics day. Everyone enjoyed the day even if the weather wasn't the best.
Our school tour also took place in U.L. It was a great day out. We loved the rafting and canoeing.
Tensions are rising for the upcoming Kelly and O'Donoghue Cups. Everyone is involved and the competition is very tight!
6th Class Graduation will take place on the 28th June. Fr. Kelleher will bless all pupils before they begin their journey to secondary school. They have been a wonderful class all through the years and will be sadly missed. We wish them all the best in secondary school.
Have a wonderful summer. Looking forward to seeing you all in September!
Here in 5th and 6th we have a very important term ahead. On the 3rd of February 2017 we will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Holy Spirit will come to us and give us seven gifts. We will become young adults of the church. We are looking forward to celebrating with our friends and family.
On the 14th of January we had our Enrolment Ceremony where we made our commitment to Jesus.
We also have the 'Peace Proms' to look forward to. This performance is taking place in the University of Limerick. We will perform with an orchestra and other schools.
We are delighted to be back in school. We have a very busy year ahead in 5th and 6th Class!
In History, we have been exploring the Aztec people. We took inspiration from them and created our own shields. In Art, we made 'selfie portraits' using lots of colour. We also used Autumnal colours to create tin foil trees. During Science, we explored magnetism. We looked at the properties of magnets and the various uses of magnets in our environment. The boys and girls of 5th and 6th class have been taking part in football leagues and blitzes.
Stay tuned for more updates throughout the year!
