We designed our own magnetic games in Room 10. Firstly,we experimented with magnets and discovered what materials were magnetic in our classroom. We decided that paper clips and coins were good.
We decided to make some fishing magnetic games as we really enjoyed reading the story of The Salmon of Knowledge. We stuck paper clips to the back of most of our fish with one coin stuck to the back of our magic fish. The person who can catch the magic fish with their magnet is the winner.
We decided to share our games with Junior Infants. We really enjoyed this .
Here are some pictures of us working together.

Last week, 6th class were busy in the kitchen making pancakes. We measured the ingredients and whisked them altogether. We then cooked them on the pan and topped the pancakes with chocolate spread and strawberries. They were delicious, many of us wanted a second helping!
We will be busy in the kitchen again this week, as we are preparing for the Fáilte Festival on this Sunday 11th of June. We will be baking items for a bake sale and we will be selling them on the day. We have asked all classes to help us out by baking some goods for the bake sale too!
We have also been busy making friendship bracelets in class and we will be selling these at the festival also.
Here are some pictures of us baking and making our friendship bracelets.
On Tuesday 2nd of May, 6th class enjoyed a Confirmation retreat in St. Angela’s College.
We worked in groups to discuss ‘What Confirmation means to me?’ We then created prayers of the faithful together.
In the afternoon we took part in a special mass. We would like to thank Fr. Noel, Sr. Mary and Corina for organising the day.
We really enjoyed it.
We are looking forward to making our Confirmation on Friday May 12th.
On Friday 17th of February Shane Crossan from Sligo Rovers visited our 6th class. We were delighted to have invited him to our school and extremely grateful for the wonderful t-shirts and jerseys which Sligo Rovers donated. We wore the t-shirts and jerseys for our school play ‘Sligo Rovers in the Hall of Fame’. Each pupil received a t-shirt to keep!
Shane spoke to us about the Sligo Rovers win in 2012 and the importance of playing sport.
A picture of our class can also be seen on the Sligo Rovers Facebook page.
We wish Sligo Rovers all the best this season!
