As part of a late Science Week, 6th class organised experiments to demonstrate to the Junior Infants. Both classes had an enormous amount of fun with 6th classes reveling in being able to explain what was happening scientifically to the younger children!
As part of Science Week 6th class recently took part in a tour of Cool Planet Experience in Enniskerry. As well as learning all about their own Carbon Footprint and the environment, they got to take part in an Ocean Acidification and the pH scale workshop involving some smelly red cabbage juice (which acted as an indicator) and various liquids!
The pupils in Sixth Class have had a busy term so far. We’ve been following the Rugby World Cup and studying Japan as well as some of the other countries involved in the tournament. We also learned how to do the Haka and created our own in groups.
For Halloween, we engaged in group stations including: Halloween Quiz, Skeleton Drive, Apple Bobbing, Mini Pumpkin Decorating, Guess Who and Halloween Battleships. We also dressed up for Halloween and performed the Thriller dance and composed our own versions!
We have recently been learning all about school in the olden days. We think it’s much better to be in school nowadays! We were even lucky enough to have Mrs. Riordan to tell us all about Taney in the past.
This week we had great fun making balloon ghosts! It was very exciting and everyone had a great time!!
Team Hope came back to school yesterday in a double-decker bus to collect the Christmas shoeboxes which Taney children kindly filled over the last few weeks. Sixth Class pupils helped carry out and load the boxes into the Team Hope bus. This year 364 colourful shoeboxes were sent off by Taney children – imagine how much joy these gifts will bring to lucky girls and boys who receive them – well done to all the children who took part!!
We learned all about Autumn changes recently. Our wonderful paintings are on display in the school hall for everyone to see!!
This week we have been inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy, a nature artist. Here are some photos of our work.
