Getting Creative!

Some of the 6ths decided to make a mini pool table today and I just think it's fantastic. What creativity...and it kept them entertained during break. Well done guys! Proud teacher over here!

Active Learning

5th and 6th have settled in great over the last 2 months with lots of fun, laughs and learning going on. Have a look below to see some of our group work activities in maths and Gaeilge. 

Finished Chromatography Pieces

5th and 6th are getting ready for Halloween

We are busy getting ready for Halloween. Last week we made pinch pot pumpkins and today we painted them all, don't they look great.

We also started our next art project. We explored Chromatography which is a method of separating mixtures. Inks and markers are often combinations of several coloured dyes dissolved in a solvent (liquid). Chromatography separates out the colours so we can find out which ones are present in ink or dye. Have a look at ours below. We will use them next week to create spooky Halloween pictures.

Minibeast Hunt

On Friday we went out on a minibeast hunt in small groups to see what we could find. We used pooters to catch them...don't worry we put them all back in their natural habitat after we examined and identified them. There was a lot of excitement and squeals at some our finds. Have a look at the photos below to see us in action.
