To celebrate Bike Week Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and InSync Street Velodrome invited our class for a free session. We had great fun working with the cycling leaders as we raced around the track. Some of us even tried on the Cathaoirleach’s chain. Take at look at some photos!
We were very lucky in Fifth Class to have two visits over the last two weeks from Imagine Dundrum, a local historian, an urbanist and an architect. So exciting! We went on a walking tour of Dundrum and took part in a mapping workshop. Take a look at our budding city planners hard at work imaginging their future Dundrum.
5th Class had a fantastic day out on Causey Farm. The weather was brilliant and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed jumping into the bog! We also met some adorable puppies and other animals. Take a look at our photos!
In Ms. Hanbidge’s class we are learning about the Irish Famine. For independent homework over the last week the children produced famine ship reports and built their own ships. The criteria was that the boat needed to float, be made of recycled material and have a name. Here’s some pictures of the Duffy Dinghy, SS Potato, Shippy McShipface, The Death Ride, The Death Star and many more! Well done boys and girls!
Fifth class enjoyed a movement break inside due to the rain. We danced along to a GoNoodle video!
In PE we practised balancing in pairs during our gymnastics lesson.
Well done 5th Class!!
In Ms. Hanbidge’s class we held a talent show recently. It was all organised by our resident class band “The Creeps” who had the idea, made the application forms, completed the running order, judged and even bought treats for the classes. They are excellent event planners. Well done to our fabulous gymnasts, magicians, dancers, actors, musicians and singers!
Fifth class enjoyed some fun maths this week as we used m&ms to explore theoretical and experimental probability. Having them as a snack at the end was very welcome too.
Making the most of our fabulous weather we moved outdoors to finish our maths lesson. While outside we played maths tag too. Fifth class love active maths!
Bhí Seó Faisín againn i rang a cúig inniu. Bhí éadaí an-ait á gcaitheamh ag na daltaí. Ach, bhí a bhfeisteas chomh seolta! Bhí gach saghas rud le feiceáil, chonaic mé tumadóir, bean galánta, fear gnó le cupáin caife, sagart, béar agus bainis. Maith sibh gach duine!!
