Fifth Class 2 - Ms Delaney
For the month of November, we looked at how much sugar is in our food. We picked chocolate bars, fizzy drinks and other foods to look at. Did you know a bottle of Lucozade sport has around 11 teaspoons of sugar? As children we should at most have 5 teaspoons of sugar a day!
We also continued our novel “The lion, the witch and the wardrobe”. The children were sent to live with the professor during world war two. We looked at important events in history during that time like the blitz. Look at our chalk drawings of the blitz. Can you name the highest building in our pictures?
This month was science week so we completed some great experiments like dancing raisins, wag the dog and we even made a zoomer that could fly through the air!
We had a very busy November and we know December will be the same!
May & June
We did lots of great work in fifth class to finish off the year. To celebrate Africa day in May, we researched Irish Aid and made projects all about how Irish Aid supports various African countries. We did lots of Drama as Gaeilge using our novel ‘Sinead ag Damhsa’ in May and ‘Deirdre agus an Fear Bréige’ in June. We even made our own crowns (coróin) as props for our drama.
We finished off our research on seeds and plants and created beautiful dandelions using paint and toilet roll holders! We learned all about the Holy Spirit and then made doves to represent the gifts of the holy spirit.
We looked at Kandinski’s artwork and created our very own abstract paintings!
We had a crazy hair day and drew self-portraits of our hairstyles! We have had a great year in 5th class! Enjoy the summer girls!
