We had a very busy October in 5th class. We went rock climbing at the Dublin rock climbing centre. The class loved it and are eager for another trip there. 6th class organised a maths quiz for maths week which the class enjoyed taking part in. We also done a fun experiment in science where we looked a magnetism. We created ghosts and used magnets to make them float in the air. We also created Halloween characters in art using old lollipop sticks. To end the month and celebrate Halloween we got dressed up and went on our annual Halloween walk.

We spent a while getting use to being one big class. We played ice breaker games to get to know each other better. We learnt about volcanoes in Geography. We built volcanoes in art. In science we learnt about the reaction between an alkaline (baking soda) and an acid (vinegar). We used our volcanoes to test this reaction which created a volcanic eruption. We performed the experiment in front of the school in assembly.
