WELCOME TO FIFTH CLASS 2022 - 2023!

Fáilte go dtí Rang a Cúig! Check back regularly to see what our creative and talented class gets up to throughout the year! laughing

Term 1 has been a very busy one for us all here in 5 th class. We have learned so
much and had so much fun during this term.
In September the whole school started the Spellings For Me Programme. We
are really enjoying this new, interactive programme.
We started training for the Sciath na Scol, unfortunately things didn’t go our
way, but we will try again next year!
We also learned the song ‘Fáilte Isteach’ during the month of September- the
best song ever!

In October we started Spanish Lessons with Paulina O’ Leary. These lessons are
going really well.
Jennifer Cooney visited us for a workshop on National Tree Day which we
thoroughly enjoyed. We learned how to measure a tree and calculate how old it
is.
We were also very busy during this month practising our hymns for the Mission’s
Mass with Fr. Lawrance and Fr. Derek.
Maths week was a great success, we did problem solving activities in class each
day.
The Zones of Regulation was also a big highlight for us. We are thoroughly
enjoying this programme- it helps us to identify our feelings and categorise
them into 4 different zones- the blue zone, green zone, red zone and yellow
zone.
We had a Soil Testing Workshop with Jessica Mason where we learned about all
the different types of soil and we tested the soil in our school garden.

November was a very enjoyable month here at Aghabullogue N.S. During Science
Week we learned about the many different types of bridges and we also worked
in groups while doing various science experiments.

We were very lucky to have Garda Orla Doyle from Macroom Garda Station visit
us at the end of the month for an Internet Safety and Road Safety talk. We
found this talk very educational and informative.

December has been an exhilarating month with the countdown to Christmas well
underway. Our Carol Service was a great success. We sang Carol of the Bells,
Joy to the World, Oíche Chiúin, Long Time Ago and Feliz Navidad. We are
currently busy practising the tin whistle for a recording of Silent Night and The
First Noel.
Term 1 has flown by and we can’t wait for Term 2!

Well done to all the children for participating so wonderfully. There are certainly some budding scientists, engineers and mathematicians in this class who can change the world – watch this space! 👨‍🚀
