4th and 5th Class 2022 - 2023 

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the Halloween break! The pupils of 4th and 5th classes have all settled into their new class routines and timetable. They are such a wonderful class, all individual but a very strong collective.

Táimid tar éis a bheith ag obair ar ár Gaeilge néamhfhoirimúil agus ag úsáid an Gaeilge i rith an lae. We have learned Beidh Aonach Amarach agus An Maidrín Rua as well as Wake Me Up by Coláiste Lurgan.

As is tradition in St Multose, we harvested a variety of fruit from the school grounds including apples, pears, plums, raspberries and blackberries. We prepared a crumble and each pod produced their own version of fruit crumble. Ms Hadden very kindly judged the baked goods. It was a very enjoyable Golden Time.

We have just started our first Book Club of the year. Each pod will read and discuss a novel for the month of October. We are looking forward to lots of discussion and debate.

Science is always a prominent subject in the senior classroom and this year is no different. The pupils of 4th and 5th classes have written, recorded, produced and edited their own informational video for the Science Reel competition run annually by University College Galway. Entrants are tasked with posing and answering a scientific-based question. The children brainstormed a number of ideas and eventually agreed on the question ‘how do salmon find their way back home?’ (the earth’s electromagnetic field and smell!!)

We also began our project for the Science Blast event. After much discussion, we decided to base our project around a topic which is defining the times we live in. Our project titled ‘Biodegradation’ will investigate 10 readily available products which claim to be biodegradable. We will set out to prove if this is indeed the case! Pupils collected a number of household objects including teabags (Lyons and Barry’s!), rubbish bags, kitchen and baby wipes etc. We then prepared two areas and buried each item. We marked each object with a corresponding numbered bamboo. We look forward to presenting our results in Limerick in May.

Together with the 6th class, we walked to Sáile to attend the annual Mental Health Awareness day organised by KYSS. This was the first year of this event since Covid. It was an exceptionally informative and enjoyable day. We attended two talks and visited a number of stalls including, Elasnik, Garda Dave, RNLI and First Responders. There was also art, drama and fire safety demonstrations. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful local service provided by KYSS.

We are very much looking forward to the reminder of this term. The children are very excited about our Christmas Show and returning to our annual Christmas Service. Watch this space…
