6th Class Blog
Good Morning Everyone!
March has landed and there is definitely a feeling that Spring is in the air, I’m sure any of you that live on a farm are very busy at the moment. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the beautiful dry weather. I know some of your younger brothers and sisters will be returning to school today, hopefully all going well, we will be returning shortly too.
We have a very busy but fun week this week. It is not only World Book Day this week but Engineers Week too. With this in mind our timetable is full of lovely activities for both, with a little less of our usual work so you can fully focus on getting the most out of each activity. Be sure to send in any photographs or videos of your work, remember we are still working towards our STEM badge! Other classes will be participating in the events too so if you want to pair up with your siblings for some of the activities go for it! The events we have chosen in 5th and 6th are aimed at your age group however if at any point you would like to substitute one of the activities for an activity that your brothers/sisters might be doing that’s ok too.
The Engineers week workshops are pre-recorded however you can participate live in the World Book Day activities. You do not need to watch them live however, they will be available afterwards, it just means you can’t ask the authors any questions.
If you have any trouble logging on to the World Book Day events you can use the password: clubsandfairs and it will allow you to access any of the workshops for free.
Thank you for all the wonderful effort in your religion last week, it’s clear to see you are all really motivated in your preparation for Confirmation. We are learning all about the fruits of the Holy Spirit this week.
Our timetable of work is attached below along with any files you may need for the week ahead.
As always if you have any questions or need any extra help you can send me a message on SeeSaw or email me on email@example.com
Have a wonderful Engineers and World Book Week!
I hope you all enjoyed your midterm break, I know myself it was wonderful to switch off from the devices for a few days and enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine we had and even the snow!
We’re getting stuck back into work this week now that we are all refreshed and revived! Keep up the great work I saw at the start of term, remember all your effort is helping you prepare for moving on to first year. Speaking of your journey through sixth class, you will notice that in religion and SPHE we will be talking a lot about the Holy Spirit and receiving that sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation is a huge part of sixth class and although at the moment we can’t be physically together as we prepare for it, we are all together in spirit.
This week we will also be learning about the GAA and how it played a part in the Gaelic revival of the late 1800s. I hope you are enjoying our novel, Holes. This week we will watch some of the movie Holes, just like War Horse it will be interesting to see the comparisons and contrasts between the two- which will you prefer I wonder?
Thank you to everyone for their lovely messages and well wishes for my wedding, we had a wonderful day. You’ll also have noticed that I’m no longer Ms Condron! You’re now all part of Mrs Murphy’s class, that will take a while to get used to!
As always if you have any questions or need anything you can contact me via SeeSaw or on my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week,
Good Morning Everybody!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend; it’s great to think that on Friday we will be on mid-term break for the whole of next week. I think after the effort you have put in since the start of January you all deserve a well earned rest!
Our timetable of work is listed below along with any PDFs needed. I hope you are enjoying our novel ‘Holes’, it’s one of my favourites when I teach sixth class.
As a nice way to finish up the half term each of the classes will be having a Zoom meeting this Friday. Ours will be at 1:30pm and we will have a quiz/scavenger hunt looking back at lots of things we’ve covered since the start of January. If you cannot make it that’s ok it’s just for fun! Just like in class there are certain rules to follow when we are having a Zoom class to make sure everyone is safe and gets the best out of it. These rules are attached below along with a letter from Mrs. Kirby, most of your parents will have received these through email already. A link to the meeting will be uploaded to SeeSaw on Tuesday and again on Thursday, if you have any questions about it just ask.
Finally, we learned a lot in our Unit on marriage in Grow in Love last week, it was a great help to me too as I will actually be getting married myself this coming Friday! From Wednesday Ms O’Donoghue will be responding to your fantastic work on SeeSaw. If you need anything you can still get in touch with her via SeeSaw or my email email@example.com
Have a great week and enjoy every second of your midterm break. You should be very proud of the hard work you put in the last few weeks; you have shown real maturity and dedication, well done!
