This week in Sixth Class we designed our own spooky Hallowe’en t-shirts.  Some of even wore them when we performed our own ‘Thriller’ dance.  Check out some of our moves.

Have a nice mid-term break from all of us in Sixth Class!

Busy term in Sixth Class

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

The pupils in Sixth Class have been learning about lots of new things.  We explored some of the Geography and History of Australia.  We even performed our own Aboriginal dances and added instruments.  Some of our other work includes beautiful Rangoli-inspired Art and Myths and Legends we wrote and illustrated ourselves.

Colonialism & Australasia

6th class have been discussing Colonialism and the countries in Australasia.  We discussed Australia and learnt about the Geography of the country.  We then moved onto New Zealand and learnt a little bit about the aboriginal people in New Zealand, the Mauri.  We learnt about The Haka and the traditions behind it.  We then created our own versions of the Haka!  We even got a chance to battle it out!

We are back!!

This week we have been exploring a lot of things!  Our brains and how they work, mindfulness and gratitude, a different sort of PE, our hopes and dreams, as well as Maths revision and games to name but a few :)!

Class of 2020 – Graduation

posted in: Sixth Class News | 0

We were very sad that this year’s 6th Class pupils did not finish Taney with their usual fun-packed final term in primary school.  Mrs. Carpenter, the 6th Class teachers and secretaries put our heads together to plan something different to mark the end of the children’s primary schooling.

With the help of Reverend Nigel Pierpoint, the usual Graduation Service was pre-recorded in the school and church for 6th Classes and their families to watch on Friday 19th June.  Packs containing personalised certificates, candles, reflection books, slideshows and letters were put together for each pupil and hand delivered to their doorsteps on Wednesday 17th June by Mrs. Maloney and Mrs. Hanley.  We really enjoyed seeing everyone “in real life” and chatting to parents and pupils.

Ms. Coe and Ms. Dolan and all the staff wish our 6th Class pupils well as they head off to secondary school after the summer holidays!

Here’s a message to you all from your teachers:

 

“Congratulations class of 2020!  We are so proud of you and we are excited for the adventure which you are about to embark on!  This time of year is always bittersweet.  You are such a credit to your school and families.  We have grown so fond of all of you throughout the year.  We had such a fantastic year together from school tours, to sports activities, Taney Fair, dramas and Junior Infant buddies to name but a few!  Over the past year we’ve had the honour of teaching you – you are all truly amazing, talented and inspiring young people.

To the parents of 6th class, thank you for your kind words and support throughout the year, we really appreciate it!

Thank you for all the happy memories and we wish you the very best!”

Chocolate, Memories & Summer Fun

At this time 6th classers would normally be exploring the Chocolate Factory but as this year it was not possible they experimented at home!  After completing research on the History of Chocolate as well as doing a Chocolate Quiz they then created their own Maya hot chocolate!  They also explored memorable moments in their own lives as well as creating their own chocolate bars!  Of course there was still time to enjoy the beautiful weather 😊.

It was another busy week for Ms. Dolan’s 6th classers; they were reflecting about the important things in life, making Bee Hotels in conjunction with World Bee Day, making their own Storyboards based on Shaun Tan’s “The Lost Thing”, to baking bread and completing Irish oral work via Seesaw!   Well done 6th class 😊

Busy Bees!

Ms. Coe’s Sixth Class pupils have been busy bees this week!  While working at home, they have been studying bees and some pupils even made bee hotels to host some solitary bees!

They were also busy with research for projects, creating impressive art and developing wonderful storyboards.  Check out some pictures of their work here.
