St Patrick's Day and Our Class Mass 

March the 17th was filled with St Patrick's day fun at Our Lady of Lourdes. It was a very an eventful day for year 5 as it was their time to shine by hosting a 'class mass'. Our readers read beautifully, our solo singers sang so sweetly and our offertory procession was second to none with a special Irish dancing twist!☘️🎶🇮🇪 

 

We welcomed parents and parishoners to the school hall after for a matinee performance of 'wagon wheel' and a 'practiced to perfection' traditional Irish Ceili dance. 

 

A special treat came in the form of a Bodran, (and Irish drum) in the afternoon. John Doody and Miss Madden played in time with a reel for all of the classes. We learnt lots about how it was made and how the vibrations creat the sound. Moving your hand in the back of the drum added depth to the sound. Some of us had a go at keeping in time to the music while other clapped the beat. 

Some fun snaps from World Book day! Can you spot your favourite character? 
We love alternative maths in Linden! Miss Madden created some composite rectangles for us to work out the area and perimeter of as teams. It was a race against the clock where precision with our calculations was key! Maths does not have to be boring!

Miss Madden has been so proud of us this week! We have worked really hard in groups to compose our own play scripts using our core text 'Granny'. Our plays were fantastic! Even Mrs McLaughlin heard how amazing they were and came in to view a 'matinee' performance.

Miss Madden was extra pleased with the way we used the text to help us write our speech and stage directions. The text helped us play our parts true to the characters they were portrayed as in the book :)

Welcome to French in Year 5. This is our class puppet Michel! He only comes out when we sing him a french song. He loves having conversations with us in french testing out the new vocabulary we have learnt. If we get it correct...he has lots of 'bisou' (kisses) for us :)
