Sharky November in fifth class

We are having a ‘fin-tastic’ time in fifth class this November!

Our theme this month is ‘Sharks’ and we are studying sharks in great detail. Before becoming a teacher, Ms Hickey studied Marine Science and working around the world with sharks focusing on shark conservation.

We have a new door display and new groups names this month based on our theme. The five of them are as follows: V.I.P sharks, Great white sharks, Hammerhead sharks, Lemon sharks and Blue sharks. For art this week we created chalk pictures of hammerhead sharks, we have also written some ‘shark-tacular’ poems in English. (check out all of our pictures below).

Our teacher Ms.Hickey is restarting our Scoil Mhuire agus Iosaf’s Science club on Wednesdays,  starting this week. Every child that chooses to attend should bring in 2.00 for our school science fund.  The time will be from 3:00pm -4:30pm each week.

Our school has been chosen for Junior NBA! We are all so excited and feel so lucky to be taking part. It is a basketball tournament run by the American NBA basketball league. We will be the team Utah Jazz and have our very own Utah Jazz jerseys! Our first training session yesterday 18/11/2018 and we will have three more training sessions left until the big match up in Dublin in December!

In fifth class we are creating another bottle cap mural so please try and recycle your bottle caps by bringing them into us. Blue and red if possible but any colour will be super! Thank you!

Bye for now!
