Welcome to the 6th class page. There are 26 pupils in Sixth Class this year!
SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER
We had good fun on the first day back to school, co-operating in some group work activities. Here are some photos of us building marshmallow towers and ‘Saving Fred’!
VISITS AND VISITORS
We we so lucky to have Chloe Watkins and Gillian Pinder visit us! They reached the World Cup Hockey Final….and they started hockey when they were in GKNS!
Here we are in St.Patrick’s Cathedral where we saw a play about St. Patrick and created stained glass art. It was our first trip of the year!
Ten pupils from the class were chosen to attend Christ Church Cathedral for the School Diocesan Service. It was a lovely day out!
Our second trip was to the RNLI Lifeboats in Dun Laoghaire. We heard all about the fantastic voluntary work carried out by the charity. We tried on the kits, looked around the station and asked A LOT of questions….!
All that talk of water made us pretty hungry so we headed to Milano’s to make pizzas before heading to the park for a run around. All in all, a very successful trip!
THE HUMAN BODY
We’ve been studying all about the Human Body. We worked in groups to create projects on specific organs of the body. We’re getting better at working together and negotiating. The end results were pretty impressive!
As we have been studying about the eye, Audrey Tormey, who attended GKNS when she was growing up came to visit. Audrey is blind and travels everywhere with her precious guide dog, Zorrow. It was fascinating hearing all about Audrey’s life – her positive outlook on everything is inspiring.
We studied about Mountains around Ireland, Europe and located some key mountains around the world. We used chalk to create these beautiful pictures.
We also made Hobby Heads to depict our interests and we made papier maché masks!
Some of us helped out at the Bake Sale on the last day before midterm. We then engaged in some fun games and made an absolute shambles of the classroom! It was worth it though! We dressed up too!
