We had a very busy December in 5th and 6th class. We began the month with a challenge. The students worked hard in December to achieve 30 hot chocolate points so they could enjoy a hot chocolate party on Friday 18th of December. The girls and boys enjoyed hot chocolate, marshmallows and chocolate lollies.
The children worked extremely hard to practice for their virtual concert, where they performed the poem: "Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore and sang the song "Little Drummer Boy!"
In Art, we created lovely snowglobes using the pointillism technique and we created our own Christmas decorations from wooden sticks, recycling some ice lolly sticks.
We wrote letters to people in our community and some of us have already received replies! We collected and organised lots of food for St. Vincent de Paul to help those in need this Christmas.
Finally, we finished off our busy month with a well deserved movie day today. We watched the movie "Santa Claws" and we all really enjoyed it .
5th class student Killian McCarthy worked really hard this month to prepare an interesting and informative presentation on volcanos, earthquakes and tsunamis. 5th and 6th class enjoyed learning about the features of volcanos, earthquakes and tsunamis through facts, pictures and videos that Killian carefully researched. Well done Killian!
