5th Class had great fun making videos during “Buddies NOT bullies” week. We made a video to explain what bullying is to the younger classes in the school and we made another video about cyberbullying for the older classes.

Scratch fish project
Nearpod & Seesaw
5th class have their own class blog on Seesaw. We use it for homework and sometimes to record ourselves speaking Irish. Our teacher often posts Maths word problems that we can work on and answer for rewards like a piece of written homework off. During the “beast from the east” we also posted some photos of our snowmen.
Nearpod is an app that we use in class. It allows our teacher to create lessons and we can either do the lesson together in class or as a self paced lesson. We had a virtual reality trip of the Louvre when we were talking about France in our class. Its a really enjoyable way of learning.
