Taney Girls played in St. Gerard’s end of season tournament for the Primary School League. A total of 30 schools took part,including Taney’s A and B Teams. Both teams came home with silver medals, playing Whitechurch and St. Matthew’s in their respective finals. Despite some nasty weather the girls and their supporting parents had a great afternoon. Many thanks to our coaches for all their support and input!
The tow 5th classes hugely enjoyed learning more about Viking and Medieval Dublin on our trip to Dublinia.
Lots of fun was had by all as we tried on some Viking armour, took a longboat trip and visited the docks.
We explored a home from medieval Dublin! Although it was charming, Fifth Class have decided we much prefer having our own space and functioning toilets.
In the Norman Ireland section we saw Dublin city being built, took a trip to medieval fair and encountered the (rather disgusting) bubonic plague and its victims.
A very exciting day out!
Bhí seo faisin againn i rang Ms.Hanbidge an tseachtain seo chaite. Phioc na daltaí éadaí seolta agus scríobh gach duine sliocht ag cur síos ar a gcuid éadaí. De hAoine bhí spraoi againn ag féachaint ar na feisteáin a bhí roghnaithe.
Féach ar na ghrianghraif!
Watch your back Simone Biles! Ms. Hanbidge’s fifth class have been working in partner balances and travelling as part of our gymnastics unit in PE. Take a look at some photos.
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes performed at the Peace Proms concert at the RDS on Sunday 3rd February.
Peace Proms celebrates culture and diversity and promotes peace, tolerance and unity through music. It was a unique experience where our pupils were afforded the opportunity to perform songs and dance moves with a live orchestra and dozens of other schools from all over Ireland! The President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, even came to watch our performance!
It was a most memorable day for pupils, teachers and families alike.
In Ms. Hanbidge’s fifth class we’ve been working on our engineering skills by building Marshmallow and Spaghetti Towers, testing catapults and exploring the link between our senses and taste! Delicious and educational.
Ms. Hanbidge’s class have been very busy working on bridges for homework.
The children had to use recycled materials to build a bridge of any kind at home. We then tested these in class for strength and stability.
Ms. Hanbidge was very impressed at the creativity and logical thinking used to build such super structures!
Well done to all the boys and girls for their hard work. A big thank you also to the parents who worked to procure interesting materials and offer their tips and tricks to support the children.
After a busy few weeks of working on our manifestos, poster making and speech writing in our campaign teams Ms. Hanbidge’s class held an election. This fell on the same day as our actual Presidential Election too which added to the excitement. A huge congratulations to all the candidates who gave eloquent speeches to both Fifth Classes. Congratulations to one of the boys, who was elected as class president after an exciting vote count!
