Active week in Ms.Lowe's class
Other activities in our last term included Science (exploring magnets and states of matter using Oobleck), DEAR time outside, tennis and lots of gardening. Look at our great success in the garden. We are amazing at remembering to water the plants and sometimes ourselves in this weather🤭
A busy end to a fun term and now looking forward to seeing the lovely weather roll in.
Lots of events celebrated in Ms. Lowe's class over the last few weeks: Odd Sock Day, Yellow Day and a very busy Seachtain na Gaeilge. As well as enjoying the Ceili, Gaelic Football, and a table quiz. We wrote, planned and modelled in our own Fashion Show for the whole school. Check out our photos:
Our 6th class all made a huge effort this year to dress up as our favourite characters from our favourite books. We also built reading dens in our classroom and read to the junior infants, who really enjoyed it.
It was a very busy first half of the year from Christmas performances, run ins with the Gardaí and everything in between. Here’s hoping this term will be just as busy.
We presented our SESE projects to the class on Google Slides. We had a variety of geography projects about Italy as well as history and science which looked at The Renaissance as well as artists and inventors like Leonardo da Vinci.
Learning about light in science gave us the chance to work with mirrors. When we weren't too busy admiring ourselves, we did some mirror writing like Leonardo da Vinci, sketched our portrait by looking through the mirror (with comical results) and explored microscopes, telescopes, coloured light and the different lens types.
