March… World book Day
We challenged ourselves for World Book Day 2023 and decided to become authors. We met with our buddies to ask them what they liked to read about and we made our very own personalised books for our little buddies. We put a lot of hard work and effort into this but it was worth it as they turned out amazing. We took the books to them on Thursday and read them their very own personalised book.
We all came to school in beautiful costumes of our favourite characters and we even had a special visitor from a very special character who we miss in our school – Ms Fetton!!! We were very lucky to make some delicious pizza with her which topped off our great day for World Book Day.
February… We had a great month of February in Rm.17. We were very busy learning all about the famine. We got creative with our homework and completed posters, arts and crafts and projects based on the Famine. We started to learn about fractions and are enjoying all the fun games that we are playing to help us learn this. We’ve been very busy learning our aimsir chaite and practising this in the computer room. We celebrated Pancake Tuesday where we had pancakes and chose toppings for them. We completed lovely spring art, Valentine’s Day art and famine charcoal art.
We ended January and welcomed February with a very special week. Our very own first ever ‘ well-being week’. We were very excited about this week and it lived up to our expectations. On Monday we made mood trackers, Tuesday we met with our buddies and completed some collaborative art, Wacky Wednesday saw us all dressed up and each one of us brought something to the class for a ‘ show and tell’ to tell everyone something special about ourselves. We spent Thursday feeling thankful and designed some gratitude mugs and Friday we had a most definite Feel Good Friday- we danced in the yard and had a very special treat of making rice crispy cakes and slushies.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first ever Wellbeing Week.
We had a fun filled festive December! We had a pyjama and movie Friday where we had lots of treats and hot chocolate. We also had a tea and toast party on our last day of school before Christmas which was great fun!! We went to the post office with our buddies from Junior Infants to post some letters home for Christmas.
In November, we had great excitement for Science Week, we did a skittles experiment, we made lava lamps and we also made a magic potion! It was great fun!
We got creative with our artwork and made prints from cardboard and printed them on to some white card! We made string telephones and found it very fascinating how we could hear each other across the room. We also revised our long multiplication and division and played lots of fun games for this.
We had a great month of October in 5th Class. We had lots of fun for Maths Week. We designed figure me out pages and we designed a trail for 2nd Class. In the Computer Room we had a budget and had to design a room using our budget. We also went to Garter Lane for art. We came to school with our costumes on for Halloween and made mummies using Oreos and white chocolate.
September has been very busy! We have had great fun in school, getting to spend time with our friends again and getting to know our new teacher and new student Sofia! We have learnt a lot already, we have been learning all about our body and our organs- we even made our organs and our lungs to see how they work. We have been busy revising shapes and place value in Maths. We also have been very lucky to get the chance to learn how to cycle safety.
On the Thursday the 8th of September we celebrated World Literacy Day. We completed some paired reading with Miss Fortune’s Class from last year. It was great fun!
We also got completed an activity where we could see what archaeologists do at work! We excavated a cookie and even better we got to eat the cookie afterwards. We are very excited for our year in 5th Class!!
