Senior Classroom

The 4th, 5th and 6th class are taught by Ms. Power. They have a large, airy, bright classroom with lots of space. With 5 computers and a laser printer in the classroom, they are often busy completing projects and looking up information on the internet. Like all the other classrooms, the senior classroom has an interactive whiteboard which the children thoroughly enjoy using!

Our annual Sports’ Day took place on the 15th of June. There was great fun on the day as the children took part in relays, hurdles, egg and spoon, sack and three legged races. Take a look at the action on the day!!

Congratulations to those pupils from each room who won the ‘Best Boy’ and ‘Best Girl’ on the day for great team work and participation throughout the year, as well as Nicole who was Student of the Year!

Well done also to all the pupils who participated so well and had fun on the day, they all received a medal for their participation 🙂

As part of our Health Promoting Schools initiative we enjoyed a healthy (indoor!) picnic as the weather wasn’t suitable for sitting outdoors. We all brought a healthy lunch on the day and had delicious fruit smoothies as well.

Thank you to Jackie and Olga as well as the Health Promoting Schools committee for organising such a lovely lunch! It was great to sit down and eat together.

On Thursday May 26th we all enjoyed a great day out in Dublin. We went on a Viking Splash Tour around the city and on the water in the morning.

Take a look at all the fun we had!

In the afternoon we visited Croke Park. We saw the changing rooms, corporate boxes, players lounge and went up into the stands.

Finally we visited the museum and interactive games where we were able to test our skills!

April with 4th, 5th & 6th Class

Date posted: 6th May 2016 | Category Blog, Class Work, Geography, History, Irish, Mathematics, Our Work on Display, Science, Senior Classroom, Visual Arts |

We have been quite busy in the past month in the Senior Room. In geography and science we looked in detail at different rocks and how they were formed.

We examined examples of different rocks, many thanks to the girls who brought in limestone, granite, marble, sandstone etc. It was great to see all these different rocks and wonderful fossils.

In art we created distorted stars with rulers and coloured in with metallic pencils. We have also been looking at the country Japan and made these bright cherry blossoms with egg cartons.

We wrote up information that we learned about Japan, it is very different to Ireland!

We recently looked at 2D shapes in maths and made these shaded shape pictures.

4th class wrote all about their houses in Irish.

In history we discovered all about the Industrial Revolution in Britain and looked at the lives of children at this time and the work they were forced to do.
