Ms Quirke’s 5th Class

5th Class in Room 14 have been very busy this month, writing letters to the residents in Newbrook Nursing Home and creating some fabulous printed pieces designed by each child. 
We began three weeks ago when the students designed their print on paper and then created their design on foam. Last week, we printed onto fabric and each child has their own individual piece to bring home!
Everyone had great fun printing with acrylic paint!
We were also busy writing letters for the past two weeks. The children created puzzles and word searches for the residents in Newbrook, who we are thinking of this Christmas. 
On Wednesday, we went down to the Post Office to post our letters and we even got a hot chocolate from the wonderful staff in Chocolate Brown who were very accommodating! 
We’ve had a busy December, but we’re all looking forward to the holidays! 


Room 14 have been learning about materials the past two weeks and we investigated different recyclable materials to chose the most suitable to construct bridges in our groups. The requirements were that the bridges were self-supporting and at least 15cm high and 20cm long. Some groups had to adapt their design when they tested their bridge and found out that they didn’t meet the brief!


Christmas Play

5th Class prepared a fantastic version of The Grinch which was enjoyed by both the school and the parents.
