Fifth Class

Fun with reading buddies!!

This week fifth and sixth classes paired up with junior and senior infants as part of our reading buddy system. Children from older classes became reading buddies to children from younger classes and each child read a book to their reading buddy. We are looking forward to doing this once a week for the school year. Well done to everybody involved. We are already looking forward to next week!!!

 

We Ran To London!!!

Fifth and Sixth classes have been using our school walkway daily and we decided to set ourselves a challenge to run to Poland. After only 2 weeks we have already reached London! This is a distance of 597km or approximately 3000 laps around the school!!

Tools of the Trade

5th Class attended City Hall for the official launch of their art work, which was created as part of the Tools of the Trade Project. Their art work was based on a maritime theme and looks most impressive on the walls of City Hall. Well done 5th Class.

Take Pride in Your Jersey

Well done to pupils in 5th and 6th class who won prizes in the Clonakilty Black Pudding Take Pride in Your Jersey Competition. The classes won a visit from Cork City player, Graham Cummins!

Cycling Workshop

5th Class completed a 5 week cycling workshop. All involved loved improving their cycling skills as well as learning valuable road safety rules.

U.C.C. Tour!!!

On Tuesday the 14th of March 5th and 6th classes went on a very enjoyable tour of U.C.C. Firstly we were delighted to each be given a gown to wear for the tour as when the university first opened all students wore those gowns! We felt a bit like we were in a scene from Harry Potter!! We learned lots of history about U.C.C. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Aula Maxima where we saw all the really old books and the portraits of the presidents of U.C.C. We also visited the Honan Chapel and enjoyed looking at all the fabulous stained glass windows! We heard all about the Quad and we visited the observatory. We particularly enjoyed opening up the roof (see photos!) and seeing the roof turning on tracks!! To finish we all received our U.C.C. certificate and got our photos taken. We had a fantastic morning and look forward to being  students there in the future!!! Thanks U.C.C. for the goodie bags!!20170314_112950 20170314_114840 20170314_120047 20170314_120832 20170314_122630 20170314_122639 20170314_122939 20170314_123155 20170314_123230 20170314_125143
