Here is a throw back to what we got up to in December


Heritage Projects

We had two pupils complete individual projects for the Cork Heritage Projects and we were lucky enough to get a presentation from both Ethan and Robert of their work.

Ethan chose the topic of Pairc Ui Chaomh and did a fantastic job of educating our class on the history of Pairc Ui Chomh as well as his own opinions and findings. He had lots of photos and even visited the grounds himself and was lucky enough to get in for a free match!! Ethan also made a fantastic model, thinking outside the box and baking a cake of the pairc.

Robert chose the English Market to complete his project, knowing there was lots of information available on this popular Cork location. Robert went to the market himself to check his information and met the local traders, one man in particular is known for meeting the queen of England on her visit to Cork. He explained the history of the market and gave his personal opinions to the class. Robert captured the beauty of the market in both his photos and his model.

We did some spooky Halloween Art and dressed up for our last day before midterm. Finishing up with some games, a movie and popcorn!



September
We have been very busy this September in 5th and 6th class. Here is a little glimpse of what we have been upto. We learned about the Paralympics and Olympics before having a zoom call with Eamon Flanagan a strength and conditioning coach, where we listened to lots of interesting information and got to ask questions. We stuck with that theme for our P.E lessons and focused on Athletics. We practiced sprinting, throws and relay racing. Recording our results gave us a better idea of just how amazing the Paralympic and Olympic records are! We have lots of GAA and soccer fans in the class and finished up our lessons with quick matches.
