5th Class March

It was brilliant to see everyone back in school the past 2 weeks and to have great life in the classroom again!

We had a busy time celebrating St Patricks Day, Easter and Wellness Week.

Here are some samples of our Easter Art. We had good fun experimenting with line patterns and paint.Collage 2021-03-26 17 19 37


As part of Wellness Week, we learned the famous Jeruselam Dance and gave a great performance in the hall  :)

The students made lovely shamrock sculptures using rolled up paper and cardboard.

We got through lots of hands on Science activities during November. Here are some photos of us creating model lungs and exploring force distribution. The students also created their own cardboard houses with sustainable features. 1606750044401


The students put a big effort into our art this term. We used chalk to explore shadows and create Christmas Snowmen. We used tinfoil and netting to create scales on our metalic fish. We learned about Tom Crean in History and drew portraits of a famous photo of him.

5th Class October


We had great fun with our Halloween themed lessons this month! The students used paint to create an Autumn sky and stencils to create spooky houses for art.




We have been working on elaborating on our adjectives in our writing lessons. We gave a big Halloween R.I.P to boring adjectives like 'good' and 'big.'



The class loved dressing up before we finished up for mid-term. Here are some pictures of the super effort the students made!

With many of the elderly unable to celebrate Halloween with their grandchildren, we thought it would be a lovely idea to send cards to local nursing homes. The students researched different nursing homes in the area and we sent Halloween cards to boost the residents spirits.
