Ms Cox’s 5th class received this lovely gift from Fr. Denis Luddy in appreciation for the petitions and thanksgivings they offered up in the recent Novena held in our neighbouring Parish, Cooleragh/ Staplestown.
Mr O' Sullivan's fifth class were learning about the Normans. They decided to try and build some castles like the Normans did. Check out their great work!
Today, Tuesday 24th of October was a very busy day for the children of fifth class as Intel were visiting to judge our Mini-Scientist projects. The children of fifth class have worked extremely hard over the past couple of weeks are were delighted to make it to this stage of the competition. There were a variety of projects on display today, from testing the various amounts of in various foods to displays of the respiratory system. Below is an example of an ingenious way of creating a hover-board.
As our school year draws to a close, it seems necessary to have a look back at all we have accomplished and all we have participated in. From our Christmas concert, to brush dancing in front of the school, to sports day, each day has been an amazing adventure that we have all enjoyed.
Each child in my class has undertaken all tasks with enthusiasm. Each pupil has been an an absolute pleasure to teach and i thank you all for doing so well. Have a brilliant summer everyone.
Today, the children of both fourth and fifth class had their school tour. They went to Rathbeggan Lakes, in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath. From the moment we got on the bus, everyone's excitement took over and we knew we had an excellent day in store. The children were able to complete a wide range of activities. They completed a heritage walk which focused on the Stone Age. The children were able to visit Baileys & Moates as well as Crannógs which brought what we have learnt in History to real life. The children were also given the opportunity to go on the paddles boats on the lakes and try and keep their balance in the water rollers. After lunch we visited the playground, pet farm and an array of bouncy castles. Its safe to say we all really enjoyed our day!
For the past eight weeks all the children of fifth class have been working extremely hard, under the guidance of Don, at learning to play the guitar. They have learned how to play a number of key chords while singing along at the same time. At the end of the eight weeks, the children had the opportunity to perform for their parents, teachers and other classes in the school. They really enjoyed their performance as did all the audience. Have a look at the video below for some of the brilliant playing, singing and dancing.
For the past number of weeks, we have been working very hard on our science topic - Light. We know all there is to know about light, how the eye works, how we see colour and how light travels. We also completed a number of experiments using torches and creating shadows. These pictures are of the periscopes we created. Periscopes are very useful for submarines and army vehicles. We had great fun making these!
The children of Mr. Geaney's class were very busy today. They were mimicking the work of Michelangelo on the Sistine chapel. They laid flat on their backs, and placed a piece of paper under their tables. They sketched something Renaissance inspired and really enjoyed taking on the role of Michelangelo!
