A Super Term in 5th & 6th Class

5th & 6th Class have had an amazing and very busy first term.

Impressive group projects on the Romans were planned, designed and presented. This learning inspired some unique Roman pottery pieces.


In Gaeilge the pupils learned about the topics of ‘Mé Féin’ and ‘Bia’. Delicious menus and recipes were planned as a result. In Maths the pupils did a lot of valuable work in Number and Data, especially in learning how to calculate averages.

In Science the pupils learned a lot about ‘The Eye’ leading to outstanding 3D models and a fun quiz afternoon.

The senior classroom has been a hive of musical activity this term from learning about musical instruments, to writing song lyrics to a very enjoyable karaoke session! We have also resumed tin whistle lessons and hopefully we can showcase this talent very soon.

Fr.Linus visited our classroom various times and we really enjoyed his teachings on Ghana and his friendly chats. He had great fun making cupcakes with the pupils and our student teacher Ms O’Connor!

The boys from 4th, 5th and 6th class represented our school with wonderful distinction in the Cumann na mBunscol school league this term. The boys won all but one of their games in which they were narrowly defeated. We are very proud of them all!

Lots of learning and fun took place on the theme of Halloween with Picasso Frankenstein Art work, poetry, report writing on Halloween traditions not to mention engaging in a variety of games & activities and of course having some delicious Halloween treats! Well done on all of your hard efforts this term 5th & 6th class. Have a SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN and I can’t wait to see what our next term brings!!
