5th Class/6th Class
We had great fun celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. To mark the occasion, the children dressed up as their favourite literary character. We also raised €140 for Barnardos. Well done to everyone who took part and donated!
This January, we have been talking about 'Our Goals for 2019'. Each of the pupils set a personal goal and a global goal for the year. It was great to see that recycling and reducing plastic was a common theme.
We also had some fun on the laptops, planning a trip from Dublin - Paris. The aim was to find the best value flights, hotels and transport for our trip. There was a fantastic discussion about 'value for money' rather than going for the cheapest option!
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.
We have started our year with a positive mindset. As a class, we are teammates and every member of the team has something special to contribute. We created this display to identify the important qualities of our group which help us to succeed. We look forward to using these skills to have a productive and fun year together!
We've been busy in 5th and 6th Class testing out our engineering skills. Have a look at the bridges we built in teams. Each bridge was required to hold a weight of 500g; each one was successful!
