Summer Term 5th class.

Delphi

I had lots of fun at Delphi. It was the best school tour ever and one of the best few days of my life. When I got to school I was so excited I could not wait to get on the bus! The scenery was spectacular. My favourite activity was bog hopping because after you got all mucky, there was a pond with slides into the water and  stuff like that.These are some negatives for example  the food .Also, it was too rainy and windy and for some of the activities you had to wait a long time for a go.I would give it a 9.25/10.00         James Doherty 5th class

Trail of Athlone

On Tuesday at 10:30 we went on a trail of Athlone. First we got on the bus. Then we got off at the Luan Art Gallery to go on a nature walk and answer questions. Some of the questions were hard and some were easy. After we handed up the questions we went to St. Peters and Pauls Church. When we got to the church, Ms. Cunniffe and Ms.Harney gave us a new sheet of questions. After we were finished outside the church, we went inside to answer the rest of the questions. We also had to be extremely quiet so it made it harder to ask your teammates for help. After we finally finished the questions we headed over to St. Mary’s church to answer the questions about the churches. Then we made our way to the Athlone castle. At the Athlone castle the questions were easier than all the other questions. I never noticed that there were so many tourists around the town. After about an hour and a half we went back to school.

Giraffa Cakes

In our class we did a piece of art call Giraffa cakes! They were so much fun to create and colour them! There was so many vibrant colours to choose from. We used oil pastels to colour them. The giraffe was hard to cut out.    Katelyn Goode and Mya Conroy

City of Bright Lights

During the year we did lots of art but this has to be one of my favourites. It was so fun to make the unique cities. There was so many different types of cities to create. I went for a more modern style. My friend went for a more futuristic style.   Mya Conroy and Katelyn Goode

Day of the Dead

So for our Mexico projects we made sugar skulls. First a template of our teacher. There was a sugar skull on it. We coloured the sugar skull and then cut it out. We got to customize our sugar skull with glitter and some accessories. They turned out amazing.  Katelyn Goode and Mya Conroy

Clay

On Wednesday our class made sculptures out of clay. Our class made some creative sculptures. I was very impressed with the finishing products. It was a very fun activity to do. Painting them was just as fun.    Mya Conroy and Katelyn Goode

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was a famous Mexican artist she made a lot of self-portraits. She painted with her mouth as she had a major back injury. These are our very own versions of her fabulous artwork.
