Poetry and Projects in Róisín’s 5th by Abbie, Isabelle and Cian T

This week we have been learning about poetry. We have learned about alliteration, similes, contrasting images, adjectives and powerful words.
At the end of the week we wrote our own poems! Here are some of the different poems that we did:

The Magical Whale 

I am the magical whale,

I don’t eat fish

I eat the gloomy grey days

And the shallow air.

I don’t wear skin and fins

I wear the colours of the rainbow.

I don’t fear death or pollution,

They fear me.

I do as I please, always.

I am the magical whale!

By Ellen


The Kitchen of Fear

The kitchen of fear,

Is where,

The ghostly sound of knives echoes.

The darkness lives there.

The taps leak blood,

Shhhhhh! I can’t say much more!

He hears everything….

Quiet, quiet, quiet…


The kitchen of fear..

By Oisín


The cops are all robbers,

Tonight at noon.

Humans growing younger,

What are we supposed to do?

People talking silence,

Blu-tack pulling down,

TV watching YOU,

Trees growing underground!

Black sun shining,

Video games playing you,

Clocks going backwards,

I don’t have a clue!

In Geography this week we have been learning about the advantages of living in Ireland and the lovely landmarks we have. We have started our projects on different areas of Ireland and what there is to do there. Some students picked:

Co. Clare, Dublin, The Curragh, Co. Kerry and The Giant’s Causeway.

This week in P.E. we have been learning about basketball. We have played fun games and practiced our shooting skills.

We learned about food in Irish and we made our very own fruit salad (through Irish!) with the person sitting beside us. We even got to eat it afterwards!

We have been experimenting with Op Art too. This, however, is op art with a twist. We are making it so that it looks like there is a hand popping out of the page. We trace our hands and draw lines horizontally and make little hills when we get to the hand. We then colour it with different markers and highlighters.
