6th class are revising their maths basics online! Here they are at work using the Manga High website. Every pupil can win medals by beating their own personal best scores at different activities, and the teacher sets tasks for us to achieve!
We were really lucky today to have a visit from one of Ireland's best Hide-and-Seek champions - a newt! This little guy was just outside the front door, so we looked at him in a lunchbox so he would be safe before moving him to a safer spot outside.
Katie and Aoife brought their violins to show us their new piece of music. They played for us using both first position and third position. We were very impressed, and it was great to see the rosin used for the bows, since we were just talking about it in our latest English story.
Today was our final day creating our masks and footprints with Veronika! We had a great day, even though it was very busy. Click "Read More" to see some of the activities we got up to!
It's the rub-a-dub-dub of objects that are moving!!! Have a listen to this great song we've been listening to about friction!
We've been studying the way friction acts on different surfaces with some experiments.
We've also been looking at air resistance, and how it's related to both gravity and friction!
We love animals in our room, so we are celebrating World Animal Day by welcoming a few visitors! We were delighted to have all sorts of fluffy pets call into us, despite the rain! We've had Bluebell and Miley the dogs, Blu the hamster, Cookie and Bella the rabbits, Sage the rescue greyhound and Holly the terrier! Thank you to all the kids, parents and animals who joined us today!
Today was our third visit with Veronika and we advanced our exploration of masks by creating our own out of papier-mâché! We put vaseline on our faces to keep our skin safe, moulded foil around the contours, solidified the contours with masking tape, and created the mask with a flour-based glue and newspaper scraps!
We also used carbon paper to make detailed and light drawings of our endangered animals. We can't wait to see how everything develops next week!
4th, 5th and 6th in the prefab!
