We are 18 hardworking and enthusiastic girls in 6th Class. We are looking forward to working together and having a great year!
Congratulations to our attendance award winners! We hope to see improved attendance in the last term.
We designed Easter Bunnies with our student teacher Ms. Murray. We really enjoyed it and we love the finished bunnies!
April 1st-5th was Mental Health Wellness Week. We took part in an art competition to illustrate our interpretation of the word 'Talk'.
We listened to Mother inspired songs while we made cards for our wonderful Mams.
We did Buddy Reading with 2nd class for World Book Day. We really enjoyed reading to our young neighbours and chatting about the books.
Cór Fhéile na Scoileanna
We took part in Cór Féile na Scoileanna. Our choir and recorder group received very positive comments from the adjudicator.
We welcomed Fiona from Recreate to show us how we can create art using recycled materials. We created some interesting pieces during the workshop!
We learned about the Fibonacci sequence in maths. We wrote poems following the sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21). We found it challenging but enjoyable. Check out our poems below!
St. Valentine's Day
We read the story of St. Valentine. We created some fun collages for the occasion!
Safer Internet Day
We took part in Safer Internet Day. We wore Safer Internet Day wristbands from Webwise. We watched an informative video about photo haring online and completed a maths activity afterwards. We were shocked by the results. We must be careful when posting photos online and always consider how they might be shared and where they could end up.
Write a Book Project
We took part in the Write a Book Project. We enjoyed writing creatively, editing, adding illustrations, designing covers and publishing. We received very positive feedback on our books. Congratulations to Leah on winning the overall class award. Well done to Caitlin, Raghnaid and Ruby on receiving the highly commended awards for their books.
It's raining, it's pouring....
We created a colourful rain scene to create these lovely pieces. Thank you to past pupil Jesse who helped us!
We are currently enjoying Athletics with Janette from Runner Beans. We have been working on our running and jumping skills. We enjoyed using the speed ladder to test our coordination and fitness.
First Term Attendance Awards
Congratulations to the 6th class attendance award winners! We look forward to even more winners next term!
We focused on the construction strand in art in the run up to Christmas. We made Advent wreaths made of pasta and stain glass nativity scenes.
We had a Lego morning in December where we enjoyed free play in pairs and groups. We created structures and made up an oral story about them which we presented to the class. It was a lot of fun and we look forward to more Lego mornings next term.
Winter in Our School Garden
We spent a glorious day in our school garden harvesting herbs and vegetables and putting it to bed for the winter months.
We have been writing away since September! We have quite a collection of recounts, poems and quick writes already. We presented them in a 'Writer's Buffet', taking time to read each other's work and write positive comments about each piece. We are very proud of all our work!
Drama - The BFG
We worked hard over two weeks to create our own scripts using an extract from 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl. We performed these mini dramas for each other. Each group gave us a very entertaining scene! We love Drama in 6th Class!
Autumn Garden Days
We had a great session in the garden together. We raked leaves, weeded the beds and sowed new seeds which should grow over Winter.
