This week, 4th and 5th have enjoyed learning about the power of trapped air and trapped water and the practical implications of hydraulics and pneumatics.
It was great to investigate this in class using plastic syringes and tubing today. We are really looking forward to applying what we learned this week to design and make a moving toy using the power of hydraulics next week!
In 4th and 5th, we’ve really enjoyed daily Mad4Maths time since we’ve returned in 2018. What a great way to end each day by playing maths games with our friends! Some of the visiting 1st class even got to join us in the fun on Wednesday.
4th and 5th really enjoyed competing in a class times tables competition last term, so we’ve decided to have a weekly competition this term. They are a very competitive group and it was a very tight competition today when they were demonstrating their square root facts! All those lunchtime competitions for fun the yard really worked their magic!
We had 5 wonderful round winners today! Well done!
Among all the preparations for the School Play and Choral Singing, we managed to squeeze in a bit of time for creating some Christmas decorations.
We designed and made 3D Tetrahedron hanging Christmas Tree decorations with surprise sweets inside.
We also created 3D snowflakes and decorative snowflakes.
Finally, we had some of our very talented pupils sing, dance and play music for us at a class concert.
What a wonderful way to wind down for Christmas!
Following our Carol Singing in Carlingford on 5th Dec- St Oliver’s Students and Staff decided to give a donation this year to our Local Red Cross Branch from our busking collection- always nice to give something back to our local community.
One of our Student Council Representatives presented Josephine with our contribution.
