For our first school trip of November, we went to Christchurch Cathedral to look at the local studies projects we had done in 5th Class.
We also went to Ballyroan library for a Space-themed workshop. We learned loads about the planets in the Solar System and even got to make our own constellation projectors and rockets out of recycled materials.
Mr O’Leary, who comes into our class to teach writing during English Stations, held a procedural writing competition. Róisín, Alice and Juliet were the three winners!
We attended a virtual talk with meteorologist Joanna Donnelly. She even answered a couple of the questions that we had sent in!
Our Sixth Class hoodies arrived. Thank you to Nichola Kinch for organising these!
Some of us tie-dyed our hoodies:
We are pen pals with 6th Class in Kill O’ The Grange NS and we received our first letters from them! ￼
To end the month, we had a debate about Black Friday, discussed what we were thankful for on the day that Thanksgiving is celebrated, and got excited for the Toy Show by watching the best bits from over the years!
Stay tuned for our December blog post! 🎄
