Fáilte go dtí ár rang!!
We have been working really hard here on the 6th class block for the past few weeks, we have been learning loads and are having great fun!
We are now (almost!!) professionals when working with fractions, we can add them, subtract them, multiply them and simplify them perfectly- now we are moving on to perfect how to divide them! We have also been revising shape and space and have completed some very impressive symmetrical designs and have been having great fun making objects with tangrams!
In English, we have been focusing on all different types of report writing and we have written our own reports on various 'People in History' such as Adolf Hitler, Tutankhamun, Anne Frank and Joseph Stalin. We used our fantastic typing skills to type them up and they are now on display for everyone to see!!
We have been learning all about the environment in Geography and Science and are making a concious decision daily to decrease our environmental footprint as much as we can by recycling, walking/cycling to school and making sure we turn off the lights every time we leave the room!
We are also preparing for our confirmation which will take place on the 21st of March!! We are super excited and have been doing lots of preparations! We have written letters to the Holy Spirit and have made commitments that we will stick to throughout our preparations for and after Confirmation. We are all really looking forward to this really special day with our family, sponsors and friends!!
Visit here again in a few weeks to see what else we have been exploring in our classroom!
