CLASS OF 2020 - 2021
7th October 2020
We have really been enjoying Space Week in 6th class this week. We have focussed our learning on the moon. We conducted an experiment to see have craters are formed on the moon. The results showed us that meteorites create craters by bashing off the moon and ejecta patterns come from the force of the collision. They can be seen by us on earth!
We have been using new apps on our ipads such as SeeSaw, Spelling City and Mathletics.
Plenty of fantastic artwork being done by the girls. Last week we focussed on a silhouette theme. This week we focussed on an optical illusion spiderweb. The colours are very striking and the making the little cute spiders went down well with everyone.
Welcome back to school everyone!
The first three weeks have been busy at Beaumont and we are all settling back into a routine. We are engaged in plenty of physical activity and have been enjoying the glorious weather September has brought us.
Every Monday we are dancing our legs off at Zumba. Walk on Wednesdays are continuing in Beaumont Park where we can appreciate all the autumn colours and nature and, of course, our latest addition – yoga on Friday mornings which has us all feeling refreshed and energised.
The week of Monday 21st was National Bike Week and we celebrated in style by cycling as a whole class to the Marina. We were blessed with the weather and were even lucky enough to get an ice-cream from Ms O’Brien.
On Wednesday 16th September we had a skipping workshop. Our instructor from ‘Skip N Rope’ taught us some new tricks and skills.
We were learning about local history in class and created a collaborative class project touching on different elements of history in Blackrock parish such as sport, transport, education, and notable landmarks.
The girls also created amazing self-portraits in one of our Art lessons – some opting to include face masks in their pieces.
We are settling into the new classroom norm well with plenty of hand sanitising, hand washing and social distancing – measures we will continue to do in order to ensure everyone’s safety.
