5th class seomra Plúirín Sneachta blog

This blog was written by Chidinma Adikaibe.

During the past six weeks in Seomra Plúirín Sneachta, we have learned lots of new things:

In Maths, we have been learning about rounding, adding, subtracting, abacus’, 2D shapes and symmetry.  Symmetry is when, for example, there is a circle and when cut in half, both sides look the same.  So it’s basically a mirror image.

Daily 5 is what we do when we come in from lunch.  We have five groups where we do the following: reading, dictionary work, a writing activity and grammar.  We do this everyday for about half an hour.

After daily 5 we do English.  So far, we have learned about synonyms and sometimes we watch news2day and take bullet points, which we later turn into full sentences, and finally news paragraphs.  We use our ‘who, what, where, when and why strategies when doing this.

Last but not least, we do Gaeilge.  We usually do Gaeilge at the end of each day.  The first thing we do is ‘ama’ and ‘clárama’ where we write down what the teacher calls out, for example; teacher calls out a time in Irish and we have to write it down!  Then he makes it trickier by asking us subject questions like maths multiplication in Irish!

That’s all for now from Seomra Plúirín Sneachta!

Bye for now!


Bonus:  In Science, we’ve been learning about these three types of rocks; Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic…stay tuned to learn more!
