Procedure Writing/Pancake Tuesday

In the run up to Pancake Tuesday the boys in G5 learned how to make healthy pancakes, using only 2 ingredients!!

This allowed the class to practice and perfect their skills on their current topic in English, which is Procedure Writing.

I’m sure they’ll teach you how to make this delicious and nutritious snack!! 918DA2B2-CEB7-46FC-AC4C-BF4CB235FD3E 2153AC32-4D38-4B10-ABBC-EDBB7BF1830B

The Garden Centre

The theme for Aistear this month was the garden centre.  We had some very eager gardeners in the class, visiting the garden centre to buy pots and seeds and then planting them at the potting station.

While at the play dough table, the boys were creating flowers, fences, hoses and many more objects that you would buy in a garden centre.

At the role play section, the garden centre’s most popular purchase was the lawnmower.


St Joseph’s C.B.S. Election 2020

WE’RE INTO THE final few days of campaigning ahead of the St. Josephs C.B.S. general election polling day, on Wednesday, and a recent opinion poll conducted by G5 suggest it is still all to play for with a number of pupils still undecided. 

G5 have been learning about ‘Representing and Interpreting Data’ in maths this month. The election gave the boys the perfect opportunity to put what the have learned into practice.
