In Ms. Hanbidge’s fifth class the children have been working hard to write Irish books over the last little while.  We were very excited to head down to Mrs. Wilson’s senior infants to read our stories to them.  They were excellent listeners and knew so many great Gaeilge words already!

Causey Farm

Fifth classes enjoyed a very muddy and messy day at Causey Farm this week.  A bit of rain didn’t dampen our spirits as we played the bodhran, visited the animals and explored some mazes.  The sun came out just in time for the main event……bog jumping!!

A big thanks to Ms. Kelly and Ms. Gorman for coming with us and making sure we all got out of the bog in one piece.

Take a look at some action shots!

Sewing skills

In Ms. Hanbidge’s class we’ve been learning about stitching and embroidery.  Although tricky at first, once we got into the swing of it some of us produced lovely works.  We made clouds with faces, words, rainbows and ribbons.  Take a look!

Fifth class were put though their paces last week.  We began the week with fitness classes and mindful moments.  We tested our heart rates and how they were changes during exercise circuits.  We went swimming on Wednesday and challenged ourselves with Monkey Gym on Thursday.  Our busy week was rounded up with great fun on a gloriously sunny Sports Day.  A big thank you to Ms. Coe for organising so many great activities!

Fifth Class have been learning about The Great Famine in SESE this term.  One aspect we looked at was mass emigration to places like the UK, Canada and America.  The children worked hard to research famine ships and try their hand at making the own ships.  Well done to all the children for their impressive ingenuity, almost all floated!

Senior Girls Soccer

We are fortunate to have a very committed group of girls from 4th to 6th class participating in Senior Soccer this year.  They have been training hard every Thursday afternoon in Leicester Celtic, come hail or shine!!  This year the girls team is entered for the Dublin Primary Schools Cup and League.  Unfortunately the girls were beaten in a tough Cup match by a more experienced team from Malahide.  However, since that loss, they are unbeaten in the League, with one match to go!  After Easter the girls will train on a Friday afternoon instead, on the grass pitch in Marlay Park.

In Ms.Hanbidge’s fifth class we’ve been learning about Antarctica.  We’ve about the famous adventurers like Tom Crean and Ernest Shackleton.

We’ve also explored the climate and how this affects the animal and plant life.

We completed some experiments to find out which material was the best insulator.  This helped us make very interesting hybrid creature that could withstand Antarctic life.  Lots of fun!
