posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

The pupils in Ms. Coe’s Sixth Class have been very busy this week.  We all got set up on Seesaw and we have been familiarising ourselves with it!  The children added their favourite piece of work and it was fantastic to see such a variety of items.  In the pictures attached, you will see some magnificent “Flat Lay” photography, Fact Files on “Sir Francis Beaufort” and some posters that explain “Why we Sweat”!  Keep up the great work Sixth Class!

Ms. Dolan’s 6th classers have been working incredibly well at home!  This week, via Seesaw they were able to send a range of different work to the teachers!  It is so uplifting to be in contact with the children and to be receiving work, please keep it coming 😊.  This week the children were asked to send a picture of their favourite pieces of work from the week, some couldn’t decide and they sent a number of pieces which is great!  They range from posters (some with audio explanations that were sent on Seesaw!) on “Why we Sweat”’, the Irish hydrographer Sir Francis Beaufort, the creator of the Beaufort cipher and the Beaufort scale, some projects ranging from a construction about The Chernobyl disaster of 1986 to a poster about Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson.  Other work that we received was a Flat Lay art activity where the children had to photograph something from up high!

Lots of work from 6th class!

It is lovely to receive photos of the children completing a variety of different tasks at home!  From making Salsa for Cinco de Mayo celebrations, to baking.

Thanks 6th classers 😊

When the World Wakes

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

March started a lot differently to how it ended.  At the end of March, we found ourselves living in a pandemic.  As we all know everyone around the world has had to readjust their lifestyles.

6th class wrote poems using inspiration from the title, ‘When the World Wakes’ to offer us all a more positive perspective on this moment in our world.  It can seem dark, but there is light in all this.  The children have done a wonderful job, their poems uplifted their teachers and parents and we hope you like them 😊.

6th class children have been busy working independently and making the most of their artistic and creative skills at home to complete information posters on various topics. Some that are set by the teacher, others they are doing as extra topics because they are interested in them! 😊

Land Yachts

Sixth Class investigated how objects may be moved by air, so we decided to make a Land Yacht.

In small groups, we explored which materials and fabrics we thought would best suit a land yacht, sails and wheels.  Next, we planned and discussed how to build the land yacht so it would hopefully travel at least 20cm in a straight line when placed in front of a hairdryer.  We also wanted it to have a working sail.  After all our planning and preparation, we built our yachts and put them to the test.  Check out some of our creations in the pictures below.

Museum of Literature

Sixth Class had the opportunity to attend a free tour and workshop at the newly opened Museum of Literature.  We explored lots of poetry by James Joyce and we even wrote and read aloud some of our own poetry.  We explored the various rooms in the museum and responded to some interesting art at the end of our tour.
