We have been busy debating some very interesting topics over the last few weeks. There is no doubt that there are plenty of excellent debaters in 5th Class! Well done to everyone who took part and a special mention for Páidí Kelly, Jacob Condra, Carla Kierans, Kate McDonnell and Kacey Grenham who made some great arguments and excellent rebuttals! Check out 5th class in action below!
How many 5th class students does it take to light a light bulb?
Well judging by our group work last week it seems 4-5 is the answer!! We really enjoyed experimenting with circuits, making our own switches and managing to get our buzzers buzzing and motors turning. I think there could be some electricians of the future among us! Take a look at some pictures below.
We have some very talented artists in 5th class! We have been making clay pottery which have been beautifully decorated. Have a look at our wonderful creations.
We learned all about the Aztec Civilization who lived in the country now known as Mexico. They were very religious and they built huge temples to pray and worship in. We had great fun building and decorating our own temples. Check them out!!
World War One
We read all about World War One. We learned about how the war started, who was involved and what it was like for soldiers fighting in the trenches and for their families waiting at home. Some of the boys and girls in firth class had relatives that fought in the war on both the side of the Allied Forces and the Central Powers. Take a look at our projects below to find out more about the war.
