6th Class

Hi All, welcome to our 6th Class Blog!

This is our last year in St.Josephs N.S and what a great eight years it has been so far!

There are 19 pupils in our class and Ms.Barrett has been our class teacher since January 2020. We have been very busy exploring a range of exciting topics in class this year.

Working from Home

I have heard from the parents in our wonderful Sixth Class that the pupils are working as hard as ever from home! Well done everyone! They have been busy with their school work, helping out around the house, baking and doing some super art!

For the months of January and February we studied World War 2 in History. The class had great interest in this topic and created excellent projects on WW2 which they presented to their peers. They also created lovely silhouette paintings of the 'Blitz' in Britain. Our English novel 'The Silver Sword' helped us to gain a better insight into life during WW2.

After this, we explored both the Geography and History of various countries in Africa. Once again the pupils worked hard in their groups, putting together projects on a particular aspect of the Geography of Africa. Unfortunately, due to recent school closures they weren't able to present these, but we are looking forward to doing this when we are back in school!



Every Friday our sports coach Lloyd takes the pupils for PE. Since Christmas they have been focusing on hurling skills which they are really enjoying. In December the boys football team won their Rackard League final, which was a great achievement. Maith thú,gach duine!


Internet Safety Week

In February we had Safer Internet Week. The pupils in our class discussed ways in which we can be more cautious on the internet and also the importance of having time away from screens and social media. We had a visit from Garda Fitzgerald who gave the pupils further information on how to be safe on the internet.
