Fifth Class 2
Science week took place during November and we took part in the annual Science Fair in the school hall. We revised what we had learned about forces at the start of the year and presented experiments to demonstrate this. We each made a ‘Wag the Dog’ to show how a lever works and we made individual parachutes to show how air resistance and gravity works. We had a great time presenting our experiments to the visiting parents and the other classes. As November is the month of remembrance, we created our own ‘Garden of Remembrance’ to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. We also drew symbols of items that reminded us of them for our sacred space. We created beautiful winter trees to represent the colder days that are here! We have also just finished reading ‘Under the Hawthorn Tree’ as our class novel which we all really enjoyed. In History we have been learning all about the Great Irish Famine and in Geography we have focused on famine around the world today. We are now working on projects based on what we have learned. We are all really looking forward to the fun month ahead in December!
