Líne Is Fearr
5th Class won our Líne Is Fearr Competition last week, and as a reward we ventured to the local playground with Shane’s 1st Class. Here are a few shots of the fun we had:
It’s STILL Good Craic
5th Class had a bit of fun today messing around with Still-Imagery and short Dramatic Presentations to represent A Recipe for a Disastrous Day that we have studied as part of Procedural Writing in English.
Spooked Up for Halloween
Everyone made a great effort to spook one another out with some extremely creative costumes and ideas. We read our horror stories and did our very best to ensure nobody left school feeling safe and comfortable!!!!!
Our second project of the year, and possibly the most interesting one thus far, has been all about people who made a contribution to society and shaped our world. The children put a lot of effort in to the content and presented the information fabulously:
Shaping Up Well!
5th had a busy time during Power Hour focusing on fractions (thanks to Rachel, Christine and Anthony for their help). To unwind we experiment with tangrams, a series of seven shapes used to create shapes, puzzles and even animals, and had great fun… and a bit of frustration!!
This week 5th Class enjoyed some Golden Time outdoors before the wet weather sets in:
As we draw near to the conclusion of our first novel of the year, Wonder, the children created portraits of the main characters. Cleverly, Rang a 5 decorated the portraits with each of the character’s traits and personalities to give each portrait a unique and individual quality.
Stone Mad for Rocks!!
Our first project of the year explored everything to do with rocks! Some children created project books, posters, flip-charts and PowerPoints, some students even brought in examples of Sedimentary, Igneous and Metamorphic rocks. Everyone made a great effort in their projects and contributed to a fabulous display outside our room.
Getting to the Point
5th Class explored pointillism during some art lessons, a technique whereby you use dots or ‘points’ to create a picture. We used cotton-buds instead of paintbrushes and created magnificent pieces of art:
