We had assembly and we were told who won the houses,the Fire team won!!! I think they were brilliant this week! We started learning about ourselves.We all did a worksheet about us, and thought about all our talents and how special we all are. We walked around the classroom and wrote down talents we think other pupils have as well. We did Irish where we learnt our body parts, as Gaeilge. We also learned about the Iron giant, and we are reading a story about it. We then drew a cover for the Iron giant book by ourselves.
In maths we have been learning about thousands, hundreds,tens and units. We got unit cubes, tens sticks and hundred squares and thousand bricks. The teacher would call a number out, and we had to make that number out of our cubes. Even better, at the end we got to play with them all!!!
In history we learnt a legend called Tuatha de Danann. Which is about a King called Ocaid who wanted to start up a war even though one of his soldiers told him not to start a war because the soldier thought the other people were much stronger. We did GoNoodle, which is an interactive computer game which is sort of like Just Dance. We did lots of different dances throughout the week, and really enjoyed it all.
We had P.e and drama. For drama we learned a rap about a Granny being the queen of raps, and we had to sing it altogether. In P.e we did laps around the yard and did stretches to warm up our muscles. Then we played tag rugby. We learnt about how to play rounders properly, with different techniques.
We started collecting lots of junk for our junk art!
On some of these days we had to stay in fifth class because our teacher Miss Sweetnam was busy at meetings. In maths we did a game called Countdown, where someone went up to the board and pressed a button, then three big numbers appeared on the board. Next the person presses on another button and three small numbers appear. Then the person presses on another button that says Target and a big big number appears and you have to make it with numbers you have got! The days flew so fast. It was all great!
We usually all do Irish in the morning. We were told we are doing the assembly and Miss Sweetnam gave us all our parts. Amelie, Meabh, Brendan, Pipi, Caoimhe and Cherry did a short drama about trying as much as you can. We were also told that we had to draw a picture of ourselves just in black and white and our picture would all be printed onto a tablecloth, then it would be for sale, so we set of drawing and the pictures turned out perfectly well!!!
We had assembly. We did our junk art with lots of old rubbish we don’t need any more. Junk art is making something new for art out of rubbish. We all had had to build robots out of the rubbish and it was so fun! There was cardboard, silver shiny paper,old coffee lids, foam, pizza boxes, empty water bottles and empty milk cartons .We used duct tape, seethrough sellotape and cream coloured tape. They all turned out to be epic and amazing!!! Some were big, small, wide or thin all cool!!! We then did our test. There was a Spelling test, a Tables test, a Weekly test and an Irish test.
I think tests are great. They really get your brain ready for the day!!! We all had such a brilliant week and enjoyed it all!
