The girls up in room 12 wrote fantastic Christmas limericks this week and did such a great job designing them, maith sibh!! 👏 We’ve had a great time over the past couple of weeks creating dances and short dramas in our pods. The virtual pantomime was also a huge hit, such a treat!! 😊
The 5th class cailíní in seomra 15 have been working really hard over the past few weeks learning all about Antarctica.
Here is our door display featuring some animals from Antarctica.
The cailíní worked in groups on projects about Tom Crean’s life and presented them to the class. They turned out amazingly!!
We learnt all about Antarctica Landscapes in Art.
The girls created interesting brochures with the focus on Antarctica and what we could do to reduce climate change there.
Ar fheabhas! Maith sibh a chailíní!

Here are lots of interesting and useful websites for you to explore. Remember to write the information in your OWN words!! You must have between 5-8 facts. I have also included the video which we have already watched in class. 😊

Project work for November
Hi girls! This month we have a lot of project work going on!
For your mini – project on Animals of the Antarctic you have been given a framework of all the information you need. This is due on 13.11.2020.
The group project on Tom Crean that you have been assigned will take a little more work. Your group has been given a topic, and you can divide it up between yourselves. Your project can be a poster, a powerpoint presentation or a combination of these. Just remember that you will have to present your project to the class and will need information to hand. Check out the assigned activity on Seesaw to see more information.
Here’s a link to a video that explains how to make a diorama – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DJKyM3JIAI
I’ve attached a link to the website that we looked at in school – just remember to have a grown-up’s permission!
Here’s a few others that look good – https://www.annascaul.ie/culture-heritage-2/tom-crean/ https://www.coolantarctica.com/Antarctica%20fact%20file/History/biography/crean_thomas.php
This group project is due on 20.11.2020 – any questions, just ask! Enjoy!!
As part of science week, choose one of these scientists, and in your OWN words, write 4-8 facts on him/her. Then create 3 questions based on those facts. You can get your information from a book or an online source such as the websites below.
Scientists to choose from; Albert Einstein, Alexander Bell, Rachel Carson, Marie Curie, Thomas Edison, Isaac Newton, Galileo.
Here are some optional at home science experiments; 🧪😊
This week is Science Week and we have been looking at what exactly science means and the different sciences there are. Today, we carried out a blubber experiment in class to go with our topic on the Antarctica. We asked our question and then we carried out an investigation to answer the question, making sure that it was a fair test. We also wrote this experiment up in our copies, just like real scientists! 🧪🧫👩🔬🥼
There are some fun and interesting experiments up on the Seesaw for you try out at home this week and I would love to see a photo or video of it. 😊
The cailíní in Room 12 had lots of fun creating their maths week door, it looks super!! Maith sibh a chailíní!!
Check out their brilliant costumes for Halloween!! They had a great time on their walk! 🎃👻🦇
Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí!
