Another busy and fun term was had by 5th and 6th class! We attended a Peace Proms rehearsal in UL under the guidance of conductor Greg Beadsell. We have been practising all the songs and are really looking forward to our performance in January. As part of the Christmas show Third to Sixth class performed a medley of songs form the Peace Proms and some festive and traditional Christmas songs. We had a super fun matinee and evening performance.
We took part in Science week and enjoyed demonstrating experiments for the class. We spent time choosing each experiment and had lots of fun making pre experiment predictions. Well done to everyone who took part.
In Literacy, we have been working on the genre of persuasion. We were set several tasks to explore and write about. We linked this with SPHE and explored recognised adverts and the power of advertising. In the run up to Christmas we looked at the traditional adverts. We created slogans and posters for various products.
As part of the Primary Climate Ambassador programme we complete training with Monica Mullins. We completed lots of activities and learned lots of new facts. Thank you Monica for a super workshop.
Johnny Dunne has been back completing football and hurling training with 5thand 6th class. This has been great fun, while also learning new skills and gaining fitness. Thank you Johnny, we look forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
We were so lucky to be invited to the Salesian Secondary College Transition Year show. They performed a very entertaining production of ‘Mama Mia’. We really enjoyed it and we were so proud to see many past pupils on stage.
6thclass ran a fantastic bake sale to raise funds for their upcoming VEX Robotics competition in January. Thank you to everyone who baked, donated and attended on the day. They raised a whopping 650 to go towards parts for the robot and team t-shirts etc………
To end our term together, we did Secret Santa. We had great fun giving and unwrapping all the thoughtful and cool presents.
