Geography and Science Projects
In school we have been doing projects. It has been really fun. Four groups had different topics: rocks, the earth's layers, earthquakes, and volcanoes. We have been doing them for around 2 - 3 weeks and everyone has enjoyed it and we hope to do more fun activities like this.
Climate Action Workshop
A few weeks ago we learned about climate change and what we can do to help our world. I think we all really enjoyed it. It was fun especially the coding thing called Microbit. We got to make our own cool game. The only problem was it was very complicated, but it was still very fun. We got to do a quiz at the end, that was really fun aswell.
In October in 5th and 6th we did lots of fun art such as land art where we made art out of leaves, rocks, twigs, branches and flowers. We also recreated the painting 'The Scream' which was one of the most detailed paintings we have ever done. We also did African tribe paintings which were paintings that African tribes would have had on the walls of their huts.
As most of you know, Ireland made it to the quarter finals in the rugby world cup. So here are some things we did in school for it. We learned how to do the haka in Irish. It was really fun. We made big data posters in groups of the matches we won and the best players. Then we all sung ‘Ireland’s call’. We had great fun.
Before we started classwork, we always did maths riddles which made our brains work hard. Also, we had buddy time, we normally do art but because it was maths week, we did a maths trail with our buddies. For PE we did a long multiplication relay and it was really fun. For drama, we had to make up a drama about if we woke up one morning and all numbers were gone. This made us think as we wouldn’t have time, maths, money or speed limits, none of that!
This month we did a pollinator workshop. We saw dead wasps and bees and we learned the difference between wasps and bees. At the end we did a nature walk out in our garden. We saw different types of trees and flowers. We learned a lot of stuff and we did a scavenger’s hunt. It was a great experience.
We finished the month off with a fantastic Halloween disco organised by the student council. We all had great fun dancing, eating treats and playing games. Happy midterm and well done to everyone on their hard work this term!
