Active Maths!

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!!

Engineer’s Week

posted in: Fifth Class News | 0

For a (slightly delayed) Engineer’s Week Ms Hanbidge’s class were challenged to make a bridge at home.  With very little information to go on it was time to get creative.  Our criteria were as follows:

It should be at least 40 cm long.  It should be able to support 50g.  It should be free standing.  It should be made from recyclable materials.  A toy car should be able to travel across it.

These structures were excellent and showed some super creative and logical thinking.  They surpassed all expectations, we may have some civil engineers in the making here.  Well done 5th class!

5th Class Dublinia Trip

posted in: Fifth Class News | 0

Both 5th classes hugely enjoyed learning more about Viking and Medieval Dublin on a recent trip to Dublinia.

We tried on some helmets and had a lot of fun looking at the exhibition!  There was a trip on a Viking longboat, a visit to the docks to try buy some slaves and tested out their homes.  After learning about their toilets we really appreciate our modern comforts!  While exploring Norman Ireland we saw Dublin city being built, took a trip to a medieval fair and encountered the (rather disgusting) bubonic plague and its victims.  We even saw a real skeleton uncovered by archaeologists.

A very exciting day out!
