4th and 5th Class

Welcome to the 4th and 5th Class blog!

On this page, we will keep you updated on what we're doing in class and display some of our wonderful work so be sure to check in on us from time to time!

So far, we have had a great start to the year and as always, September is proving to be busy, busy month!

As well as all the hard work we put into our core subjects - English, Maths & Gaeilge, we have also learned how to write, clap and compose our own rhythms, learned how to solve sudoku puzzles, experimented with colours through mixing, tinting and blending, created a timeline of important events in our lives, recited poems, sang songs and are continuing to study the counties of Ireland.

Brainteaser: What is the only county that doesn't touch another county that touches the sea??

We are also playing lots of team-building games in class and on yard. We recently learned how to play the game 'Capture the Flag' where the children had to work as a team to collect the most flags without getting caught! Our ducking and dodging skills were put to the test and we will continue to work on our tactics in the weeks ahead.

Last week, the class put together terrific manifestos for elections for the 4 school committees.

While it's not possible for every child to be elected, we wanted to commend each and every one of the children for the fantastic effort they put into their speeches and the wonderful ideas they had. These children are definitely familiar with the powers of persuasion!! 😅

Both 4th and 5th Class have really 'hit the ground running' this year and we are really looking forward to what the rest of Term 1 will bring.

Stay tuned!! 😉
