In 6th Class, we studied and listened to some of the poetry written by Walter de la Mare. We were inspired by one of his more famous pieces of writing, “The Listeners” and created images based on how we each interpreted the poem. 💭See the beautiful artwork below :
We created a Remembrance Tree for the month of November. The month of November is traditionally a month where we remember those who are no longer with us and honour their memory. The girls decorated beautiful leaves with prayers on them and we kept it in our Sacred Space in Room 10.🌼
We’ve been so busy here in Room 14 since returning back to school after the midterm break. Take a look at some of the things we have worked on so far this term!
Sligo and Tipperary brochures!
Art using charcoal, based on the poem ‘The Listeners’ by Walter de la Mare.
3D object sketches!
We have been working hard in maths this month. We are learning about fractions. We have been using fraction wheels and fraction walls to compare fractions- identifying equivalent fractions and ordering them on a number line.
Here are some games to revise the concepts at home;
We have been using cubes, drawing pictures and creating number sentences to solve problems finding a FRACTION OF A NUMBER. This is a concept that we have spent a lot of time on and are continuing to work on. We have been DIVIDING the whole number into EQUAL groups.
Here is a game to help revise this at home;
We created pictures using fractions.
Useful language when using fractions: fractions, equivalent, equal, the same value, bigger/smaller, amount, divide, numerator, denominator, half, third, quarter, fifth, sixth, eighth, ninth, tenth, twelfth, whole unit.
*As always, it is advised that the girls be supervised when using the internet.
Well done to the girls on their fabulous E.U. projects. They were well researched and a lot of work went into them. They are now on display in our cloakroom. The girls did a fantastic job presenting the projects to the class.
We had great fun dressing up before the midterm. We went on a sponsored walk around Clontarf.
We are learning about Arranmore off the coast of Donegal. Here are some of our tourist posters encouraging people to visit the island.
Maths Week was celebrated from the 10th-18th of October.
The girls played lots of of challenging games and had great fun competing in Numero, What’s the Number? and 21.
We also went on a fun Maths Trial in the yard! We were discovering and exploring all the various angles in the yard! 🙂
We also got very creative when designing our classroom door for the maths competition. Well done to all the girls who helped design it! 🙂
Last week was Maths Week. We had lots of fun in school.
Congratulations to Lucy H. and Sarah who received Maths Week certificates.
We played tables snap every day to practice our tables. We wrote maths acrostic poems using maths vocabulary. We created a display on our classroom door using maths vocabulary.
We created symmetrical aliens using our names.
We tried a few problems and brainteasers during the week too. We also started suduko, we are hoping to continue working on them this week.
