We are learning about ancient Rome. Everyone in our class is busy working on their project. In a few weeks we will be ready to present our projects. Did you know that people used to fight to death in the Colosseum? It’s now one of the most popular tourist attractions in Rome.
We have been working alongside the artist Mirjam Keune on our topic ‘Minibeasts’ . Firstly we read the book ‘|Bugs in a blanket’ as our stimulus. Each week we created different artwork, such as drawings, making our own felt pictures and creating creatures with fimo clay to name but a few. Check out our photographs below of us all in action.
On the 30th of January Mr Cronin’s 5th Class took a trip to Trinity College. We learned about Carbon Monoxide poisoning as well as becoming C.S.I scientists for the afternoon!! We got to check for fingerprints and do tests to find out what different mystery substances were.
As Spring is the time of growth, we decided to do a little planting! We learnt all about how plants grow and what they need to survive. After this, we got some plastic cups, compost, sunflower seeds and water and planted our very own Sunflowers.
We will look after them every day and hopefully the sun will shine enough to make them big and strong!
Run run as fast as you can you can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man… We learnt about the story of The Gingerbread Man. For Golden time we decided to make our own. We were afraid the Gingerbread Men would hop out of the oven and escape!! We made sure we ate them straight away!
Ms. McGoey helped us with our recipe and brought in an electric mixer. We had great fun using it.
We really enjoyed baking and hope to do it again soon.
