Fifth Class 2018-2019
- Busy Scientists
Fifth and Sixth class were learning about staple foods all around the globe in Science and Geography. We looked at the different factors that determine a country’s or region’s staple such as climate, cost, supply etc. Some of the staples we looked at were potatoes, rice, pasta, plantain, couscous, etc. We then learned that most staples have a high starch percentage. We talked about how starch gives us energy and how some foods give us more than others.
The pupils went home and collected various types of food which we then tested for starch using iodine. It was great fun and the pupils had good fun checking to see if their predictions were correct.
- Dance Dance Dance!
Fifth and Sixth Class have had great fun the last 2 weeks doing dance for P.E. The pupils were busy practicing and showcasing their group dance routines!
- St. Finian’s Win Louth Quiz Final!!
The St. Finian’s quiz team claimed the Louth Cumann an mBunscol Tráth na gCéist title today. It is the first time the school has claimed the title and we are extremely proud! Having won their regional competition last week, the team went into today’s final in Knockbridge quietly confident and this confidence surely shone through with the team scoring a very impressive 71 out of 80 in what was a challenging quiz. A huge well done to Áine, Alex, Catherine, Cillian & Seán. A tremendous achievement that you should be very proud of. A big thank you to all the parents who helped with transport both weeks!
Well done boys and girls!!
