The Big Dig

September22

Fifth Class were very lucky to be invited to attend The Big Dig in St.Anne’s Park on Wednesday morning. We made our way down and got to spend a while looking at different artifacts from long ago. We discussed what the different artifacts would tell us about the people who lived there. We learned that if you found a sword you could probably guess the people who lived there were warriors or if you found animal bones you could probably guess the people were farmers! After that we got to take part in an excavation. We got to use trowels and shovels to dig and found lots of interesting objects. We found things like goblets, animal bones and even swords! We had a great time and learned lots about the work of archaeologists.

International Dot Day

September19

Last week it was International Dot Day. International Dot Day is based around a story called The Dot by Peter. H. Reynolds which is about a girl who thinks she is no good at art but her teacher changes her mind. We decided the message of the story was that everyone has a different view of what ‘good’ art is and that everyone can be an artist. We created some dot paintings to celebrate the day. You will also see our Class Playlist in the photos below which we really enjoy listening to during art lessons. We created the playlist together at the beginning of the year!

5th Class Trip to Ardscoil La Salle

September19

5th Class had the opportunity to go and visit a secondary school last week. They had a great time and visited lots of different classrooms like the science lab where they saw sheep heads and eyeballs and the music room where they got to try out different instruments. They asked lots of great questions about secondary school and seemed to learn a lot!
