October in Room 19

October in Room 19

We have had so much fun this month in 6th Class! We hope you enjoy looking at some photos of our October activities and adventures.

The girls enjoyed searching for clues as they hunted for their M.S. Readathon packs. Since this Where’s Wally? treasure hunt to launch this year’s Readathon, everyone has been very busy reading!

Mairéad Stack, from Heritage in Schools, prepared a fascinating nature trail for us and we learned all about badger poo!


The girls answered quiz questions about trees on Kahoot and wrote some poems about trees on Tree Day.

We learned a lot during Space Week and enjoyed our visit from Nasa data analyst, Fionnghuala O’Reilly. The arrival of the mobile planetarium was definitely a highlight of the month! We learned all about the search for life on distant planets, the constellations, Earth’s rotation and Earth’s orbit around the sun.

Maths Week was another busy week this month! There were many competitions to enter and a lot of fun Maths activities. We particularly enjoyed answering the daily word problems and guessing how much confetti was in the balloons. We played Maths games and used the iPads to capture images of Maths in our environment.

The 6th Class Grandparent Project was a great success this month! The girls completed fantastic projects on older family members and the whole school community enjoyed looking at these fascinating biographies. Our favourite part of the project was the showcase day in the hall for the girls’ families. A lot of the 6th Class girls baked delicious treats for the occasion! Many thanks to all involved, including the parents who gave their time to serve tea and coffee on the day.


There were many fun activities last week which got everyone excited about Halloween! Bernie set up Halloween games for everyone during Drama Class and the pumpkin competition was fierce as always. Thanks to Ms. Fletcher for organising this. Well done to Caoimhe, Ruth and Shauna on winning the best pumpkin from Room 19! It was great to see everyone in their costumes on Friday and we had fun making chocolate apples. There was also a visit from Niamh Hetherton and Brian Howard, who brought in the Brendan Martin Cup and Sam Maguire Cup. The Dublin players told the girls all about how they made it onto the county teams and answered many questions.


We hope that everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
