4th/5th Class Úna Meehan

Welcome back to another school year with a new class of 29 girls.It looks like it's going to be a very busy term. As well as all our curriculum areas, we also have a Christmas show to prepare for. My class will be performing an extract from The Wizard of Oz. Work is well under way.

Well done to the girls who took part in the Duhallow Girls' Football blitz recently. Our Green School Halloween competition is up and running and I am really looking forward to the creative designs. Closing date is the Friday before Mid Term break. 

Our credit Union Art competition is almost ready now. The theme this year is "Let your imagination go Wild". Best of luck to everybody.

We have some lovely new books in our classroom, thanks to the money from the Book Fair. The girls use the library every week to help with reading.

MATHLETICS and CLICNEWS are two websites that we hope to make great use of this year. Clicnews is a fun way of exploring news items and keeps the child informed of events going on in their world. It has the added attraction of rewarding the child through the SWAP SHOP and exciting competitions. 

MATHLETICS- Maths class is sOOOOO quiet when we do mathletics!!!!. It is fun, interesting and a change from the teacher doing all the talking. More details about this later.
