Looking Back at 2018: Some Highlights!

As we eagerly begin our new term in Fifth Class in The Good Shepherd National School we look back at some of the memories we have from 2018!


As a school we took part in Science Week 2018 and we were very lucky to be introduced to some beautiful and interesting birds. Some of us even got to hold them!



We were working very hard all year in Fifth Class and we completed some project work based on the countries of Europe. We presented out projects to the class and the rest of the school!



We also worked very hard in Maths, and we completed some fun lessons on 2D shapes. We learned that there is a lot of tricky terminology in relation to 2D shapes but we worked super hard to get a grasp of it! We were tasked with making models of 2D shapes and also to use tangrams to create scenes from our environment!



Well done Fifth Class!

Maths Week: Brickx Club!

We had a brilliant time during Maths week in Fifth class – we solved Maths crosswords, worked extra hard with our fractions, played lots of games of Around the World (well done to our winners!) and ended the week with Brickx Club! We worked individually and in groups to design our constructions so that they would be able to support themselves as structures. We were also able to decorate them at the end! Take a look at all of our fabulous creations, well done to all!


A Great Start For Fifth!

As we begin our sixth week back after the summer holidays, we look back on some of the work we have completed in the classroom this month. The children have been working extremely hard during their maths lessons this month and we have covered challenging topics such as place value, multiplication and fractions. Here the children were asked to represent numbers on notation boards. Well done fifth class, keep up the fantastic work!
