Fifth Class

Fáilte romhat go rang a Cúig


We’ve been settling in really well to life in 5th class – check out all the things we’ve been doing since September! Inspired by Gretta Thunberg, we’ve been keeping an eye on the weather. We have also been studying what types of plants and trees grow in our locality. Luckily, we got a chance to go on a nature walk before storm Lorenzo hit Ballyjamesduff!

The rush of everyday life in 5th class can really set the pulses racing, especially this past month when we were learning about how our heart works!





Our new 5th class has been pottering along nicely! Have a look at our cracking Greek pots which contain personalised myths and legends. At least we know that art is definitely not our ‘Achilles Heel’…



We were so lucky this month to get going with our cycling workshops – everyone’s having a ‘wheelie’ good time! We’ve also been practising our GAA skills, getting inspiration from men’s and ladies teams locally and nationally! We were delighted to see Castlerahan do the double in the final this year!

We’ve had an electrifying time learning about magnets and electricity this past month. We were really shocked at how easy it is to make some circuits!

We love Halloween in 5th class! Check out some of our terrifying costumes
