5th Class 2D shapes

October 9th, 2017

5th class recently learned all about 2D shapes in Maths class. We thought there weren’t many triangular-shaped things in our school until we really looked around us and focused on finding that shape. There were so many triangles in our classroom and we found loads more when we explored our school grounds further. We even made our own triangular shapes out of ourselves!!

The girls football team went to Wolfe Tones camogie field to take part in a blitz last Monday. The girls played absolutely brilliant on the day. They won a match and lost a match. Congratulations to New Quay and Kilkishen who go through to the next round. Well done to everyone involved. 

Lego Education

5th class have worked with Lego recently to help us to understand Science and engineering in a hands-on way. We had great fun working with motors and pulleys and programming what we built to move thanks through our laptops. It was very enjoyable!

5th Class Tour to Derg Isle Activity Centre

June 27th, 2017

Last Thursday, 5th class visited Derg Isle in Mountshannon for our school tour. We had a lovely morning and the sun stayed behind the clouds so we didn’t get sunburnt!! We spent the morning trying to summit various climbing towers. Some of us found it difficult at the start but got better at it as we grew in confidence. We then had a relay obstacle race which was pretty tough but we got through it in the end…despite drenching each other!! Finally, we all got to have a go zip-lining from one tower to another…it went so fast that it was scary at the start but fun to do at the same time. We stopped at a shop on the way home for some tasty treats!! Big thanks to Ms. Fleming for joining us and to John our bus driver who allowed us to eat on the bus and made sure we got home on time!!

Chicken Visitors to 5th Class

June 27th, 2017

We were delighted to welcome 7 eggs, an incubator and a cage to our school a couple of weeks ago. There was great excitement in our class as we waited for the eggs to hatch. Thankfully, all seven chicks hatched safely and it was really interesting watching them grow for the week while they stayed in our school. We couldn’t believe how quickly they grew! We brought them over to our classroom for a morning and we had some good fun watching them and playing with them. They need a full time toilet cleaner behind them to keep the place tidy…you’ll see how we tried to keep our tables clean using hand towels but this didn’t always work!! We had a little chicken race in the class before they left us. We thought we could encourage the chickens to their food like you would a dog, but we learned that chickens are quite headstrong and will only move and eat, when they want to!! Thanks to Ms. Hehir for organising their trip to our school.
