Class Work

Garda Yvonne Carolan visits Rang 5

On the 10th of January Yvonne Carolan visited 5th class to educate us about her job. Yvonne works in Ballyshannon Garda station. She started off her presentation by showing us all her equipment. First she showed us her hat, she told us it was very important she didn’t lose it because someone could impersonate a Garda. She showed us her stab proof vest and her high visibility jacket. She showed us pepper spray, her baton, walkie talkie of sorts that had a GPS, so  that people in other police stations can see her exact location at all times. She can also communicate with other Gardai, she is able to dial up three numbers just like a normal mobile phone.  After her presentation she held a question and answer session. It was very interesting. We appreciated her giving up her time. She gave us lots of goodies.
You never know some of our class may enter the force in the future.

Marshmallow Challenge

On the 21st of December, 2018, the last day before the Christmas holidays all the children in fifth class did a spaghetti and marshmallow challenge!
We didn’t know what to expect when we saw Ms Daly coming in with bags of spaghetti and bags of marshmallows, a strange combination! We had to build the tallest structures we could with only raw spaghetti and marshmallows but then she told us. We were quite excited about the challenge. We were split into six teams. There were six children in each group. It was difficult at first our structures kept collapsing. We soon started to work as a team and put our heads together to create structures of all shapes and sizes. The tallest structure was about 80-85cm tall. The fun didn’t stop there though, because after the challenge, we got to eat all the leftovers, as in the marshmallows. It was a funfilled last day.

Third Class Robotics Workshop
On Friday the 9th of November Third Class took part in a Robotics Workshop lead by Brendan Joyce.  The children had a wonderful time and the class is full of up and coming engineers.  Thank you very much to Mr. Joyce for a very interesting and entertaining time.

Fifth Class - Cake Sale
On the 25th of October, Fifth Class in the Four Masters School in Kinlough, held a bake sale for the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland.  Their classroom was filled with an aroma of beautifully baked cakes, buns and biscuits.  They raised an impressive €920.  They presented the cheque to Maureen Keenaghan and Ann-Marie Rooney.  They would like to thank everyone who supported this worthy cause by baking or giving donations.

Fifth Class

In rang 5 we have been very busy learning about "Biodiversity".  Biodiversity is the theme of the Fifth Green Flag.  We are very interested in learning about animals and their various habitats around the school.  We decided we would focus on birds this term.  We made bird feeders and will place them in the school garden and around the school grounds.  We made a booklet of common birds in Ireland and are going to bird-watch in the coming weeks.  Watch this space for our findings ...

Below is a selecion of photos of us with our bird feeders
