‘Great Global Citizens’ projects in 5th Class

The pupils in 5th Class recently took part in a project on global citizenship, learning about what it means to be a good citizen for the world. Working alone or in groups, the children chose someone whom they admired and described what he/she had done to make the world a better place. The variety of figures chosen was very interesting, including politicians, activists, musicians and ordinary people who stood up for themselves and others in difficult situations.

Well done to all the pupils for their excellent work on these projects, and a special congratulations to the overall winners of the competition; Sheila, Amélie and Robyn in Room 18, Sarah, Goda and Charlie from Room 19, and Ciaran, Áine and Charlotte in Room 20.

Thanks also to Jennifer and Lauren from Trócaire who visited the 5th Classes to tell them about Trócaire’s work to improve the lives of people less fortunate than us.

Lego WeDo in Room 19

We tried out the new Lego© WeDo kits in Room 19 this week. Lego© WeDo is a fun way of learning about engineering and coding.

First, we split into groups and worked together to build racing cars. Then, we had to connect the motors to the iPad app and programme them to move. We had quite a few ‘technical difficulties’ that required a bit of patience to solve, but we got there in the end!

We then investigated some of the factors that influence the speed of the car - by using different sized wheels, changing the power of the motor, and adding a weight to the car. We looked at some pictures of fast cars like Lamborghinis to see if we could spot some of those features.

We learned a lot working with the Lego© kits, and we can’t wait to use them in class again!

 

Coming Soon...

Stay tuned for lots of exciting class activities...
