CLASS OF 2020 - 2021
A warm welcome to our 5th Class blog. Please check in regularly to keep up to date with what we are getting up to!
Space Week Oct 5th-10th
We had a very busy week for Space Week. We started with an online "Observatory in the Classroom" with Caoimhín from Blackrock Castle Observatory. We learned a lot of information about stars, planets and the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. We wrote some excellent reports and had a great time making the many star constellations using marshmallows and toothpicks!
We finish up every week with a Friday quiz using the iPads. Quickly becoming the highlight of the week. We will be ready for Mastermind by the time we finish 5th class!
Discover Cork: School's Heritage Project Workshop
We had an excellent virtual workshop with Cllr. Kieran Mc Carthy to help us to prepare for our entries for this years "Discover Cork: School's Heritage Project Competition". We are looking forward to getting started.

One of the highlights of our week is our weekly yoga session with Alma. We are learning sun salutations, yoga poses, stretches, mindfulness and much more. We are really enjoying it. Namaste!
We are delighted to be involved in helping in the garden this year. Our volunteer gardeners have been showing us how to tend to the garden. We even had a very successful garden sale!
Working hard on our Friday tests!!!
We love to skip. We have been keeping fit and building our stamina by practising skipping in the yard throughout the week and at lunchtime. We recently had a workshop with Mark from "SkipnRope". It was brilliant. We learned lots of new tricks and games.
