CLASS 10

Class 10 March 2022

Class 10 have had an eventful March with lots of outdoor activities and learning taking place.  The class enjoyed a trip to Tollymore forest where we enjoyed exploring nature, bark rubbings and searching for mini beasts.  This was such a success and the children thoroughly enjoyed the day out.  The topic this month was light and electricity and the children made simple circuits, they even used fruit to create light! We also explored shadows with light and made a puppet show. Enter text...

Class 10 February 2022

Class 10 investigated the people who lived in the Arctic and we enjoyed our ice quiz to test our knowledge.  We also made lovely Valentine’s cards and gifts for our loved ones at home and we created an inspirational video to show our fabulous dance moves! We hope you like it!

January  2022  Update

Class 10 have been exploring the season of Winter! We have been very lucky to have had some snow this month and we have been investigating what we can do with ice! We even made ice bracelets to see how long they would last.  We have also discovered animals found in the Arctic ( polar bears) and Antarctica ( penguins) and we created our own class igloo.... it is definitely as cool as ice! 

December 2021 Update 

Class 10 have been celebrating the season of Christmas.  We have enjoyed playing lots of Christmassy numeracy and literacy games as well as creating art pieces.  Class 10 have been baking Christmas treats as well as making some fun videos.  Class 10 would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Class 10 Update - January 2020

Class 10 are embracing our new cultures topic about ‘Africa.’ We have been learning all about the country and what it is like to live there. We made some African food and shared our curried mince, couscous and flatbread with everyone at the Food Market on ‘Wellness’ Day. The pupils worked off their treats by taking part in a dance workshop. We also did some taste testing of African fruits served with warmed honey and cinnamon. We designed some African pots using pastels and then made our creations out of clay. The pupils also painted African sunset pictures with wild animal silhouettes. A busy month for a hard working bunch of young people!
