In November we created some Irish videos using a green screen and an iPhone. We carried out a science investigation that looked at creating a rocket. We had a visit from an artist who is currently completing a school sculpture. The class had the opportunity to design boats as part of the lesson. For Science week we created our own bouncy ball. The most exciting part of the month was the Kids Kitchen Takeover. The photos of the event do not do justice to the excitement and amazing day we had! Lat week we visited the Squid cafe where we got to play games and pool!
October was jam packed! For Space week we had a Skype call from Blackrock Observatory. We also went to Actons hotel for a talk about mental health. We completed a school maths trail for maths week. We began using tablets in the class. We started athletics with our wonderful coach Claire and the month finished with a trip to Páirc Uí Rinn for the girls Sciath na Scol final. We even had time for Science where we learned about the pH sacle.
September was a busy month for 6th class with a trip to Curraheen Showgrounds where children were introduced to orienteering. September also saw the start of our chess league with Mr. Murray. We also learned about the Celts in history and played some fun new maths games.
