6th class are in room 15 with Ms. Hanly
We are settled back now into routine and enjoying our time in 6th class so far. We have been improving our gaelic football skills each week, enjoying drama games and brushing up on our art skills. Have a look at some of our work so far.
On Tuesday October 8th we enjoyed a trip to the Grand Canal which flows through Clondalkin. We learned about the history of the Canal, facts about the Canal and explored the flora and fauna in the area. We had a great day and would like thank Sandra for sharing all her knowledge with us.
We have been learning all about nutrition and the importance of healthy eating recently in Science. To finish up the topic we made some delicious smoothies to show how good fruit and vegtables really are.
We are doing plenty of painting as part of the paint and colour strand. Recently we focused on mixing the primary colours and exploring tonal colours.
We are delighted to get back into our refurbished computer room this year. We have doing some research for our history projects on the Celts and practicing our maths skills in ICT games.
We are big books fans in room 15 and have got our year off to a good start by visiting the library in search of some of our favourite authors.
We had a guest speaker into us recently to speak about first aid and St. John's ambulance.
We love taking part in sport in room 15. We are starting to build up our running again and are increasing the number of laps we can run each week. We dance everymorning before our lessons begin to warm us up and help get us to focus on our work. We are improving our Gaelic football skills during PE and twelve girls out of our class play on the school team which train every Tuesday and plays matches on Wednesdays. Every Wednesday we welcome in a coach from Leinster Rugby to put us through our paces while playing Tag Rugby. We absolutely loved brushing up on our skipping skills at the recent skipping workshop...what will we do next?
