6th Class were delighted to welcome their families to Room 7 for our 'Christmas Brunch'! The girls were busy preparing food and baking for the party and all of our guests were well looked after by the 6th Class hostesses on the day!
Well done girls!
6th Class have been very busy over the last number of weeks! Have a look at our posts below to see what we have been up to!
We started Science Week early because we went to Tullamore College. They showed us how to make bubbles and you put your hand through the bubble and if you spin the bucket in a circle very fast the water will not spill out of the bucket . We had a very fun day in the Tullamore College. The following week we went to the library to do food science called Foodopi. The teachers got to taste food and guess what the food was. Then the kids got to do it with some skittles and guess the flavour. They made ice cream with liquid nitrogen, it was really quick. Then after we made our own little batter and added nice things on it. It was a yummy day. Then in our own classroom we are working on how to make the bulb light with wires and a battery and we made it light. We are working on making our own electronic games.

Our sixth class went to Petmania to see loads of animals like fish and hamsters.
We got to pet some animals and see plenty of reptiles such as geckos.
We got so see tarantulas get feed and feed some fish.
We learnt lots of facts about the hamsters and the other animals.
The only thing we didn't like was that there was no bunnies!
Thank you Petmania for letting us visit your shop!

A very warm welcome back to our new 6th Class in Room 7!
We have had a busy week and a half since coming back to school. We are organised and ready for a new school year!
In History, we are learning about the schools in the past. In particular, we are investigating the history of St. Philomena's N.S. and the changes that have taken place in our school over the years.
We were delighted to welcome back Miss Corrigan, who answered all of our questions about what the school was like when she began teaching here. We learned a lot and we were thrilled to get the chance to have a chat with Miss Corrigan!
Last week we said a final farewell to our 6th Class 2018/19.
We celebrated the occasion with a lovely graduation mass in the Convent Chapel, followed by tea and coffee in the school. All of the 6th Class girls took part in the mass through prayer and song. Thank you to everyone involved and to all of the family members who attended.
We wish our 6th Class girls the very best as they begin secondary school and thank them for their contributions to St. Philomena's N.S. over the past four years!
We hope that all of the girls will look back fondly on their time in the school and that they have made friends for life in St. Philomena's!
Some of our Room 7 memories have been captured in a slideshow. Have a look below!
6th Class have been working hard over the last couple of months completing their entry for the Our World Irish Aid Awards (have a look at our blog posts below for more details!).
We were thrilled to be chosen as one of the fifteen regional finalists!
Rachael, Abbie, Domante, Ali and Grace traveled to Mary Immaculate College in Limerick to receive the award on behalf of the class. On the day, they brought a poster showing off some of our best work. They also listened to some interesting speakers and took part in a dance lesson!
We are very proud of our great achievement and were delighted to take part in such a worthwhile project!
For the month of March and April, we did a project called the Irish Aid Awards.
We are going to be talking about a food demonstration and a play we did in class.
In the food demonstration we made a bunch of recipes using leftover food .
Here are some of the food we made today . For starters we made a Caesar salad
for main course we made a cheesy pasta and for dessert we made brownies in a cup.
Now we are going to talk about how the drama went we were doing a play to show people to help countries like Ethiopia in the play, we gave an Ethiopian person seeds so they can grow a plant then they can sell the the plant to make money and buy food.
Both activities were a huge success!
