St Brigid’s Day.
In January fifth class learned all about France. We carried out projects based on France gathering as much interesting material as we could from as many sources as we could think of. We had three weeks to complete the project. Our impressive projects were scored on a rubric out of 100. We really enjoyed the project and held a French Friday on the day of the presentations to taste typical French foods. Cathal’s project got first place, Sean was in second and we had Billy and Kaitlin joint third place. Au revoir!

World Book Day
In March we had World Book Day. Fifth class made really cool comic strips with Mrs.Cronolly. We dressed up as our favourite character from a book. Later that day we did a book hunt with famous books and authors. We also ran a competition called “How well do you know your teachers?”. The teachers each brought in a book that they had read recently and the children using what they know about each teacher to choose which book they would be mostly likely to read! It was a difficult task but really fun. Now we know a lot more about our teachers. We all had a terrific day. Our class also dressed up as their favourite characters from the world of literature. We had lots of interesting characters including Gangsta Granny, Harry Potter, Mary Poppins ,An Assasin, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dorothy and Willy Wonka. We had lots of fun making our costumes and dressing up.
