January in Katie’s Fifth Class

Home / January in Katie’s Fifth Class - February 16, 2020 , by admin

January was a very busy month in Katie’s Fifth Class. We were delighted to be given the opportunity to use our brand new instruments during Music lessons to develop our sense of pulse and to create rhythms. The class worked hard, learning how to read and perform standard music notation. A huge thank you to Meath County Council who awarded the school a grant for the purchase of these instruments.

   

 

In Visual Arts lessons this month the class designed and created miniature houses and furniture using a range of artistic skills – painting, constructing, sewing, etc. The children spent the month working on their houses and demonstrated excellent teamwork skills in the process.

     

Fractions was a significant part of our Maths lessons in January. The children learned how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and learned how to identify equivalent fractions.
