Welcome to Ms. Sloyan's 6th Class

Well done on Graduating Class of 2020!

Best wishes from Ms. Sloyan!

Welcome to our 6th class B Blog. This year there are 26 students in our class. 

Below is a classroom collage of all the students in our class.

In September, we painted our own personal money boxes. See a picture below of them.

In September, we won Class of The Month! We were delighted with ourselves!

In September and October the 5th and 6th Class boys have been doing Gaelic training and matches for Cumann na mbunscoil.

We have been doing very well as we have won all of our matches to date. We have a match today Tuesday the 8th of October which will take place in The Oval. This is a quarter final match. If we get to the final and win it, we will be going to Croke Park.

Have a look below at the pictures to come of the Quarter Final. 

In September, we signed up for The Junior Entrepreneur Programme! Watch This Space!

From the week beginning 14th October, we will begin a programme with Mark Lacey from Insanity Fitzone Palmerstown which will take place in the school hall during the school day. The sessions will be based on fitness, teamwork, resilience and positive self-talk.

32 Counties of Ireland

Here's some help for you to learn them.

Mr. Egan's Retirement 25th October 2019

Sadly Mr. Egan's is retiring on Friday the 25th of October. There will be a special assembly for pupils only on that day from 1.45pm -2.30pm. At 2.30pm the hall will then be open for parents, past pupils, grandparents etc. to celebrate with food and music with Mr. Egan. Everyone is invited to attend.

We will be singing two songs 'I'm still standing' by Elton John and the chorus of An Poc ar Buile. Have a look at the lyrics and Youtube clips below. 

Ailliliú, puilliliú, ailliliú tá an puc ar buile!
Ailliliú, puilliliú,
Ailliliú
tá an puc ar buile!

In October we learned about Buildings, Sites and Ruins in Geography. In Art we created some replicas. Take a look below.

Ms. Roche joined us in the autumn for three weeks. We did lots of work with her. The theme for the three weeks was Climate Change. We really enjoyed working with her. Take a look below at some of the pieces of work we did with her. 

During Halloween we created Barin Breac recipes in Irish!

In Geography & Science we learned about Animals. We created fact files about various animals. 

In Maths, we have been learning about lines and angles. So learning about Kandinsky in Art was very integrated.

In Art, we created animals with clay. We planned for this and we used various techniques with the clay. 

Here are some close up samples of the clay!

Ms. Roche created a wonderful Investigation table for us. 

We wrote Animal stories in English too.

In Science, we did lots of experiments about weather. We even made a thermometer and a Barometer.

On the 12th of October we went to Lucan Library for Science Week. The workshop was called Junior Einstein. We learned a lot! We even electrocuted a Barbie Doll! Take a look at the pictures below.

Here's some pictures of the type of work we have been doing with Mark Lacey from Insanity Gym, Palmerstown. 

In November we studied 2-D Shapes in Maths. This included solving puzzles using tan-grams. They were trickier than we initially thought. Take a look at some of the pictures below. 

In November, we completed Gymnastics in P.E. We did some pair poses too. Take a look below. 

In November, we started our preparations for Multicultural Week that will take place between December 2nd-6th. We are busy making projects. We are creating projects on 'Germany', 'Latvia', 'Philippians' and 'Hinduism'. 

Here's a graph of all the countries we have been to!

Confirmation 2020

These are pictures from our Confirmation practises. Our Confirmation was held on March 12th in St. Philomena’s Church with Canon Tony and Monsignor Paul Callan. (A picture from this day can be viewed at the top of this webpage.) We had a fantastic day. Thank you Canon Tony and Monsignor Paul Callan for everything. We would also like to thank Mr. Daly, the musicians (Mr. Moore, Mr. Fortune and Ms. McGeever) and the choir for their lovely music on the day. This was Mr. Daly’s last performance with the choir. He has done such a terrific job over the years! Thanks to Ms. Cummins and Ms. Fogarty, who helped assist both with singing and printing of leaflets. Special thanks to Dean Norton and Matthew Grohann who sang the song ‘Gifts of Bread and Wine’ with Mr. Daly. Thanks to every boy who either read readings/symbols introductions/reflections, brought up symbols, lit candles, brought up bread & wine, sang the psalm or said prayers of the faithful. Thanks to the parish secretaries for helping us with the confirmation cards and the booklets for the day & the Ceremony of Light. Thanks to the extra priests who heard confessions during the Ceremony of Light. Thanks to the parents who helped out during the Ceremony of Light (Ms. O'Byrne) and during the Confirmation (Ms. Reilly). Thanks to the children and parents who presented all teaching staff and SNA’s with flowers. They were very much appreciated. Thanks for the sacristans and the parish committee who helped in many ways including preparing the symbols and the flowers. Thanks to the altar servers too. Thanks also to Ms. Brack, Ms. Jenner and Ms. McSorley who helped with the practises and the preparation of artwork. Most of all, a big thank you goes to the boys of 6th Class, their parents, families and sponsor’s. You did yourself proud and we hope you had the most wonderful day!

Best Wishes,

Ms. Sloyan and Ms. Gorham.
