 6th Class 2022 - 2023

January 2023


6th class have had an exciting start to 2023. They have been preparing for a robotics competition with the help of the transition year students and their TY co-coordinator Niamh Hay from Kinsale Community School. The students helped us code our robot and with our robot driving skills in an arena (which they brought over to us!) On the 18th January we headed off to MTU and had the BEST day. DELL computers had such a fantastic set up and it was wonderful for the students to go to a university, compete in a robotics competition with other primary schools in Cork and tell lots of jokes to the MC! Thank you also to Alex for getting up on stage!


We have started the new year reflecting on what we’re grateful for in our lives. Every day, we start our day with a morning greeting. For the past two weeks, we have stood in a circle first thing in the morning. Each person has said something that made them happy in the morning. It’s a nice, calm and meaningful way to start our day!


We have just started history projects on ‘Northern Ireland’. The children are working in groups of two on different research topics. They will compile these on PowerPoint next week. Looking forward to seeing their finished work!

September 2022

6th class have had a very busy and productive September, settling into their final year of primary school so well! They have been learning about fishing in Ireland, John-Philip Holland and investigating how submarines work. Last week,  they began projects on various topics ocean related: impact of marine litter on our oceans, how tides work, sea shore creatures and seaweed. 6th class also spent time in the polytunnel clearing and preparing our beds. What brilliant gardeners! They harvested apples in our school garden and all made an apple and blackberry traybake that was judged by Ms. Kingston. What a fantastic start to the school year. Well done 6th class!
