Fifth Class

international dot day

We celebrated international dot day by listening to the story ‘The Dot’ by Peter H Reynolds. This inspired us to create our own art pieces!

place value

5th class drew different items that cost tens of thousands of euro. Underneath their drawings, they had to write the price in both number words and expanded form.

mé féin

5th class have been learning all about ‘Mé Féin’ in Irish. Look at their fabulous pieces of writing!

rugby world cup

5th class have been busy learning all about the Rugby World Cup.

First, everyone randomly selected a country. Then, we did mini fact files on those countries and designed the 2023 jerseys. We used the chromebooks to research information about the countries such as their capital cities, populations, currencies and other interesting facts. We also had a Rugby World Cup quiz. 5th class knew so much about the Rugby World Cup!!

maths fun

5th class have been revising their times tables by playing fun maths games.

dictionary work

5th class have been busy using their dictionaries to find the definitions of words in their new story.


We explored the poem “I didn’t go camping” by Kenn Nesbitt before creating our own poems. There are some fantastic poets in 5th class!!


In 5th class this week we had a chat about our prayers for the new school year. We then created our own back to school prayers which can be seen in Our Holy Space.

All about us

“All about #My Selfie” and “My life in Apps.” This was a great way for 5th class to learn more about each other.
