Christmas Crackers

Happy Christmas!! We had so much fun today pulling Christmas crackers. We won party hats and lots of little prizes. We are really looking forward to Christmas.

Shopaholics

We all went shopping this morning. Thank you to Ms. Ahern’s class for setting up the shop for us. We were busy with our shopping bags, reading price tags and choosing items to buy.

Life Skills

We were very busy in the kitchen this morning. Over the past few weeks we have been practising washing our hands and faces, brushing our teeth, spreading butter on toast and pouring juice. We are getting so good at it that today we did all our jobs together. Look how fantastic we are.

Pizza Party

We made pizzas in school. We spread the tomato sauce on the pizza base and then sprinkled cheese on top. We put them in the oven to cook. When they were ready we all tried some pizza. Yum yum!

 

Tennis

We love tennis! We have been working hard on our tennis skills over the past few weeks. Thank you so much to the tennis coaches.

Christmas show fun!!!

Yesterday was a very special day for 6th class pupils. Not only did they write their own outstanding play and made amazing props they performed it in front of moms & dads, students, teachers and everybody else!!
On the day of the play some of our class mates had stage fright so we all encouraged each other to go on stage. On top of all this we were under time pressure to get the final script completed because we were also completing our history project.
Our play was first on out of the afternoon shows which were the 4th, 5th and 6th classes. Our play had so many funny bits and the audience got a great laugh!! Our play was about Santa not sticking to his diet all year and then he ended up getting stuck in a chimney!
After our play we got so many compliments about how funny it was! Our principal Mr. Hurley said that it was so funny and that he loved it. That made our whole class very happy.
We also had a very special guest, Leanne Murphy who came out at the end! We would like to give a special thanks to Olivia and Caoilfhionn for writing the first draft of the Christmas play! We would also like to give a special thanks to Ryan our musical director. We would also like to give a special thanks to our parents for all of the extra help and great support and encouragement always!! Happy Christmas everybody!!

Sixth class History Project


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.

Happy Birthday

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.

The Three Little Pigs

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!!
