In 5th and 6th Class, we have been doing a project based on the 'Global Goals for Sustainable Development'.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, we must work together to build a better future for everyone.
Based on this, we organised ourselves into groups. Each group drew a 'Global Goals' town, including as many innovative ideas as possible to achieve and promote the aims set out by the Global Goals. Our 'towns' were then joined together to create a 'Global Goals City'.
We had very interesting discussions about our role as global citizens and brainstormed ideas of how we can help to make more sustainable choices in our lives to help achieve the targets set out in the Global Goals.
Below, please look at the global goals and read our ideas as to how we can make sustainable choices.
To mark Mrs. Claire Harrington's retirement from Stratford NS, we had a wonderful ceremony where the children displayed their talents and affection for her through song, poetry and speeches.
We wish Mrs. Harrington all the best in her future endeavours and thank her for her service in Stratford National School. Go n-éirí an bóthar leat!
We did some lovely descriptive writing this term. We selected someone (or a pet) to write a descriptive piece on. We used lots of adjectives and similes to make our descriptions more interesting and detailed. We really enjoyed listening to each other's work and visualising the person (or pet) described.
Everybody can feel a little stressed and overwhelmed at times. We made these mind jars as part of our SPHE class to help us remember that sometimes we can feel strong emotions but eventually they pass. We learned that feelings are like visitors that come and go. We love to watch our mind jars settling down. We find them very relaxing and calming.
This week in Science and S.P.H.E. we have been learning about the correct names for parts of the body. We have also been learning about the jobs our internal organs do, particularly our heart, lungs and brain. We finished our lessons by splitting into teams and having a body parts quiz- we co-operated really well!
