The children in fifth and sixth class experienced their first taste of democracy this week! It’s a historical year for our school as we elect our first ever student council. On Monday, the candidates rounded up their campaigns by giving a speech to their classmates outlining their election plans. On Wednesday, they all visited the polling stations and cast their votes. Stay tuned to find out who has been elected next week!
Fifth class have been working hard on their Australia projects. They look great!! The children worked well in teams and will be presenting their projects in class this week! Well done all!
To celebrate maths week in school we brought our shared reading partners from Ms. Comerfords senior infants outside to complete a maths trail! We had lots of fun and the senior infants really impressed us with their counting skills! Hopefully we taught them a thing or two!
We have had a busy start to the year learning about long division, the digestive system and the Celts among other things! We have made animations and written explanation texts. We have also started our book club meetings. We have played games and we have done some art too. We look forward to keeping you updated on events as the year progresses.
We’ve been busy working on colour and tone the past two weeks in art. You can see our colour wheels on our window which we created using just the primary colours. We then chose one colour and made a tonal scale and used different tones to create a “tonal monster”. Just in time to have them ready to decorate the halls for Halloween!!
School has started back and so has the learning and excitement in 5th and 6th class! So far we’ve been settling in, working hard and enjoying ourselves in art, drama and sports. Check in here regularly to see what we get up to this year. We’re particularly excited about our concert!
Ms. O’ Connors 5th class has a fun filled day at Clara Lara water park. The water slide was a big hit and all went home soaking, but happy!
As we have been working very hard with senior infants this year, our shared reading partners we thought a treat was called for! So last Friday, we gathered our favourite teddy bears and lunches and headed for Gerry's garden for a special teddy bear's picnic! We had great fun playing games and eating our lunch together!
Ms Cox’s 5th class are active citizens when it comes to local development!
The students were excited to receive a reply to their pro active email to Kildare Co. Co. in which they outlined the benefits a playground would bring to the Prosperous Community. The class got to see the proposed plans and were told the development is scheduled to commence this Summer.
