Happy Christmas from 5th Class!




Our new 5th class classroom.


We can’t mix pods in our classroom, so we go outside for some activities.


Sometimes we even do Irish outside! 


We LOVE doing STEM challenges. This one was to see who could make the longest paper chain.





We learned all about the Solar System and did some active learning to fill in our fact sheets!

We bid a fond farewell to Ms O Connor, who has been teaching in Scoil Íde Naofa for 37 years!
October 2020
We really enjoyed taking part in Maths Week 2020. We took part in challenges and puzzles every day.
Huge congrats to Calum, our Maths Week Mathematician and Eoghan our Tables King for Maths Week!
We love to do mindfulness in 5th Class and we decided to write some positive messages around the school yard.
Halloween 2020
We really enjoyed dressing up for Halloween. Have a look at our costumes!

We also learned about Dia de los Muertos and created our own calaveras.


November 2020

We did some debating in Fifth Class, judged by our adjudicators. They had a very difficult job!




This year marked the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and we searched through articles for information.




We learned about the inventor Jane Ní Dhulchaointigh and her invention “Sugru”.

As we hadn’t heard about it before, we made some advertisements for her product “Sugru”.

We sent an email to the company to show them our great work and they sent us some Sugru!!

Eoghan found a great use for his Sugru!


We watched a Ted Talk “How design should include everyone” by Sinéad Burke, an Irish little person. In the talk she outlines the difficulties she faces in society as almost everything is designed for average height people.

We took part in an “Accessible Homes” project, where we designed a home for someone with a disability.

We were delighted with the results.





We used Sugru in our houses to help fix furniture in place or to hang pictures.



We also learned about circuits and added one to our home.




We are really proud of our homes!





December 2020

We created an Advent calendar in our class.

Some days we helped at home with hoovering or washing the dishes. Other days we got a treat, like…

    making rice krispie buns…..

   …doing extra Christmas art…..


     …or wearing something festive to school!

€1 per student in the class was also donated to “Wear to Care” for the Irish Cancer Society.
