6th Class Work at Home – Week: June 15th – June 19th 2020
Parents & pupils, as we reach the end of our school year we will this year mark it with a new departure- a virtual graduation. As you are aware it is the safest option available but we do hope to gather all of you for one final farewell in September/October when safe to do so. We will broadcast the virtual graduation online and with parental permission, which we will deem given or consented to when you forward the following to us:
- A series of photos(3) of your school years – (1)early school years/ 1st day at school, (2)middle school years (2nd /3rd /4th classes) & (3) 6th class/ present day photo. These photos do not necessarily have to be in school uniform but if they are, ALL THE BETTER!!
- The items from last week’s HW- the comic strip of a favourite event of your time in Scoil Ghobnatan & your name decorated and coloured
Click the button below to see a social story about having a teams call with my teacher. This may be very useful for some children prior to their first group call.
Please send your email to the class teacher – this will allow them to send an invite for your child to join a group meeting online via Microsoft Teams.
The following video shows how to join a Microsoft Teams meeting:
This summer will mark the retirement of one of our long serving teachers, Ms. Cremin. She has been a support teacher attached to 6th class for many years, as well as being an invaluable asset in helping us out with in- class literacy, maths, well- being stations, supervision etc. We in 6th would like to wish her health and happiness in retirement and thank her for her work.
6th Class students
As is tradition for the 6th class students, this will be the last week of work set before your official summer holidays. It has been a tough, challenging year but you have all risen to the task admirably. Well done to all and stay safe over your summer holidays.

Blow air in direction of green arrow
Blow really hard!
What do you notice?
The “uplift” is similar to what enables an airplane to rise off the tarmac when air blows across the wing.
Switch on a hair-dryer facing upwards
Place a table tennis ball above it
Instead of blowing away, it bobbles about as if inside an invisible cone due to inward air-pressures represented by blue arrows. If you have two table tennis balls and time to practice, you may teach them to dance.
