Róisín’s 5th

We’ve had an extremely busy few weeks in 5th class. In Literacy we have been learning how to write recounts. We’ve also been revising prepositions, adverbs, nouns, pronouns…the list goes on! AND we’ve been making these fun by playing lots of writing games to build on these skills! We also started our class novel, “Holes” by Louis Sachar, and are beginning to really enjoy it.

In Maths last week, we worked on Place Value. Again, we played lots of fun games to develop our mental maths skills. Looking forward to tackling our new topic this week – Data!

The class have been working exceptionally hard on their Gaeilge. We’ve worked on vocabulary and phrases as Gaeilge and the children have been trying so hard to use the language throughout the day. This week, among other things, we’ll be talking and writing about “mo theaghlach” (my family) – thank you for sending in photos!

Lots of budding tin whistle players in the class! We’ve been practicing almost every day for the past two weeks and the enthusiasm is wonderful to see! This week, we will definitely be ready to move on to our new note: F#.

Looking forward to another week of fun!
