Sixth Class had the opportunity to attend a free tour and workshop in the newly opened Museum of Literature. The children explored poetry by Seamus Heaney, James Joyce with his love of creating his own words, and other Irish authors. They also got to see the first edition of Ulysses!
For the past two weeks, the pupils in Sixth Class have been learning about the Human Digestive System. We looked at the various parts of the Digestive System and explored their functions.
We also conducted an experiment in small groups to investigate how the Digestive System works.
During the first week back, 6th class used all the Frásaí they have learnt since September to create a drama!
This week the theme for Gaeilge in Sixth Class was “Sa Bhialann”.
We have been learning and using lots of different phrases for our Comhrá drama. We prepared our Comhrá in groups and set up our own Bialann. We arranged props and some of us even got dressed up to perform our Comhrá in front of the class.
Happy Christmas to all from Ms Coe’s Sixth Class!
Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes had great cricket sessions with coaches from Cricket Leinster over the Autumn Term!
We have been learning about the properties of Air in 6th class. So we completed two experiments to show that Air exerts pressure!
As part of a late Science Week, 6th class organised experiments to demonstrate to the Junior Infants. Both classes had an enormous amount of fun with 6th classes reveling in being able to explain what was happening scientifically to the younger children!
