We had great fun participating in our PTA 'Spookathon' Fundraiser on Friday 26th October.  Everyone came to school dressed in their Hallowe’en costume and completed our 'Mile a Day' in fancy dress.  Thank you to everyone who sponsored us.  Together, we raised over £4000.

📏🔢 Maths Week Ireland 🔢📏

As part of our whole school celebration of Maths Week Ireland 2018, our class was set the challenge to build the tallest 3D structure we could using only spaghetti and jelly babies as pur building materials.  After much discussion and problem solving, we finally got our structure to hold (though we had to be quick with the camera)!

📱EU Code Week📱

We explored the apps Lego Fix the Factory and Swift Playground during EU Code Week in Year 4/5.  As well as being great fun, coding is a fantastic problem solving activity. We worked in pairs to carry out these activities. 🤔💡

🔦 Ditch the Dark Day 🔦

We held our first 'Ditch the Dark' day on Friday 12th October.  Johnny from Sustrans was in school that morning to greet us in our bright colours.  He was very impressed at the numbers of children who are now walking or part-walking on their journeys to and from school!

🍂🍁📚 National Poetry Day 📚🍁🍂

 

In celebration of National Poetry Day, Year 4/5 carried out a shared writing task by creating a haiku poem on the theme of Autumn.  We learned that haiku poems have three lines and always have a 5-7-5 syllable pattern.  After our shared writing task we then had a go at writing our own Autumn haiku.  These are now on display in our classroom.

🌍📝 International Literacy Day 2018 📝🌍

Today, Saturday 8th September, is International Literacy Day! To mark it, we held discussions on the inequalities adults and children experience in literacy development around the world.  We then designed some beautiful posters which depict our love of literacy. These are now on display in our classroom. 📚📖📝✏️
