As the children know, I am a big fan of the artwork by African artist, Martin Bullinya. They remembered painting pictures with me from first class inspired by the artist. We took inspiration from him again in 5th class but with a twist. We brought his paintings into 3D form by choosing a figure based on his paintings and created clay figures. The result was creative masterpieces...
Fifth Class were unrecognisable in their costumes on Trick r Treat for Temple Street Day. It was a great day and everyone got into the spirit of fun. The fashion show pictures below capture the spirit of the day and all for such a good cause...
What a day we had yesterday! We had the privilege of being brought to Croke Park to cheer on St Mary's girls GAA team. The girls got all the way to the final! What an achievement! We made hats and posters and led by Ali had chants and songs to cheer the girls along. The girls were great and we are particularly proud of the girls from our class; Lauren, Caoimhe, Saorla, Sophie, Grace, Elaine, Daisy and Thea. The atmosphere was great and when Thea scored we were all delighted! Well done girls!
We designed Maths Trails for Ms Weston's 2nd Class. We researched what they are learning about this year in 2nd class and designed trails for them to use their Maths eyes around the school. They used skills they know in Maths and some skills they will be learning this year. We covered areas like measurement, counting/skip-counting, addition, 2D/3D shapes and lots more. We worked with the children to help them to complete their trails. We finished off by buddying up with some of the children to complete an acrostic Maths Week activity...
On Wednesday 10 October 5th class and Junior Infants went to Herbert park on a nature adventure. Each 5th class took care of one or two Junior Infants. They went to the duck pond and picked up some leaves, flowers and conkers. It was very fun day and all the 5th class were tired after taking care of the Junior Infants and I would say they were exhausted too!

We have been learning about the Ancient Greeks. We designed masks based on the those used back in Ancient Greece to perform comedies and tragedies. We came up with short comedies and tragedies in small groups to perform with our masks for the class. We then looked at Greek vases from the same time and incorporated some Greek gods, goddesses and legends onto our designs.
