Fifth Class

A big welcome to all the children and their families to 5th class. We're looking forward to a busy and productive year ahead! 


***Postcard Project Update*** 27th November 2018

The postcard project is an ongoing success and we have collected 160 postcards to date, from places such as Halifax, Texas, Tallinn, Helsinki, Hawaii, Sydney, India, Argentina, Sicily, Wellington, Fort Lauderdale, Tokyo, Seoul as well as local ones from Maynooth, Grafton Street, Cobh and Belfast. Sincere thanks to all families taking part as we are really enjoying learning about places around the world and improving our mapping skills! The project will continue until the end of June!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We would like to invite all families to take part in our year-long ‘Postcard Project’. Our aim will be to get as many postcards sent to our class by the end of the school year, from as many countries and destinations around the world as possible. If you have family and friends abroad, or even around Ireland, please ask if they would be willing to send us a postcard from their local area, with a couple of lines about it as well as whom it’s from. If they include a return address we could send a postcard or letter to them! We will keep track of all the locations on our world map and use graphs to show our progress! It will be exciting to receive post from around the world, learn about different locations and we can also compare different stamps from different countries too.

Postcards can be sent to:

26th of September was European Day of Languages. Our class created a display on the Learn Together noticeboard including paragraphs written in other languages such as French, German, Gaeilge, Spanish, Lithuanian etc. Children from 5th class visited other classes to share their knowledge.
