Sixth Class End of Year Update!

What a last term and year we have had in 6th class. It has been so busy and 6th Class have been fantastic throughout this term and year. They have to be commended on their maturity and ability to adapt to the safety measures that were in place in school.

In STEM we had lots of fun building bridge structures and creating playgrounds within our pods. We used materials to create the strongest bridges and the most creative playground. This was so much fun!

Art was also a lot of fun this term! Ms Mullane challenged us to draw various items but with a twist! Our page was on our head! There was a lot of laughing and fun during this lesson! We also had so much fun making clay pieces and they turned out so well when painted. We loved completing our yard murals using chalk. It was hard work but the result was worth it! They looked so cool and all the other classes loved them.

We loved playing Rounders as part of our PE lessons.

We were so busy coming up to Sports Day, Ms Mullane knew that we were up to a challenge and we made treat bags for the rest of the school. We were so happy that we gave everyone a treat for Sports day.

We were in awe of Magic Peter, the Magician. He performed very cool tricks and we all got a turn to participate. The ice cream van was a lovely end to our last full week of primary school.

Catherine spoiled us with a piñata. This was so much fun! Thank you Catherine! On Graduation day we had a yummy pizza party and recalled our memories of our years in Kilcornan National school.

It has been a strange but brilliant year this year and everyone has worked so well. Well done!

Thank you Catherine for your fantastic help in our classroom every day!

We are all looking forward to our summer holidays and a well earned break. Have a lovely safe and happy summer and best of luck in Secondary school!

6th Class Easter Update

What an unusual term this was, with remote learning back in place in January. Ms Mullane was so proud of all of 6th class and the fantastic work they did during this tricky time. Well done to everyone!


Luckily we were back in our classrooms on March 15th and we were all so excited to see each other. We spent lots of time chatting, having fun as a class and playing with our friends.


In Maths, we did some revision and also tackled long division with decimals. During Station Teaching, we did mystery Maths and had to crack the code with our partner. This was so much fun.

In Literacy, we explored and learned the poem ‘The Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth. Some of our parents remember learning this when they were in school! We also started a new novel called ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio. We are looking forward to reading about the heartwarming and inspiring story of Auggie Pullman.

We had lots of fun completing some Easter inspired art, especially our egg characters! One of our parents was very creative with an Easter themed lunch box!


We loved celebrating World Book Day with the overall prize going to Mark O Rourke, who dressed up as Hedwig from Harry Potter!


We have loved playing our new board games in our Pods, that we kindly got from our Parents’ Council, thank you!


We look forward to our next term! Stay tuned for more updates!

Slán!

6th Class December Update

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!


6th Class Mid Term Update

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!
