Since October sixth class have been working on a very special history project which will be entered into a competition in the City Hall in January. Our project is about a 1904 Evening Echo that was found in our school. It is the oldest copy of the Echo available in Ireland. As part of our research we first of all studied the old paper. Each person then worked on a particularly interesting article. We looked at advertisements, war, clothing, crime, streets in Cork, money and much much more. We learned loads about life in 1904 as a result of our studies. We also took a trip to Cork City library and looked at microfilm and old newspapers. We had a very enjoyable trip to an old house in Wellington Square as part of our research. We also had great fun designing a tram and the model will be on display in the lobby complete with sound effects! We received much help from our local historian Plunket Carter and we would like to extend a very big thank you for all his help and time. We will be in the lobby with our project over the next few days and we hope to see you there.
One of the boys in our class celebrated his birthday day. He is a big boy now. Happy birthday!! Thank you for all the sweets and delicious cake.
We love drama in our class. We read the story of the Three Little Pigs and here are some pictures of us acting it out. We had some very scary Big Bad Wolves and some very frightened Little Pigs. Hurray for drama!!
First we made jam on the cooker with berries and jam. Yum! Yum!
While the jam was cooking we made the dough for the brown bread and jam. We all worked together to mix the dough.We have strong muscles.
We are so proud of the result. Yummy jam and warm brown scones straight from the oven. We can’t wait to tuck in.
Well done to 6th Class for taking part in National Bike Week by cycling to Fitzgerald Park. The event was also part of a fundraiser to sent bikes to Ghana to allow girls cycle to school. Well done 6th Class!
