6th Class Buddy Reading

6th class once again joined up with our buddies in Ms O’Leary’s 1st class for Buddy Reading. The boys showed a lot of responsibility and helped their buddies by segmenting and blending, prediction and summary of their stories.


6th Class Authors

The boys are busy in the final stages of editing their stories which will be published later this year. We have put a lot of work into planning, drafting, editing and proof-reading and all our hard work is coming to fruition. We can’t wait to see the final product!

Look back at Christmas Room 6

The 3 Little Pigs STEM Project

We watched an old Disney cartoon of the story of The 3 Little Pigs. Of course this is usually aimed at a younger audience, but afterwards the boys were tasked with designing houses made of straw, sticks and bricks (straws, lollipop sticks and jenga blocks), that could withstand the Big Bad Wolf (a hairdryer in disguise). They really got heavily involved in this design and make activity, resulting in some very ingenious designs that were successful in defending against repeated wolf attacks.

Pancake Tuesday in Room 13

We all were very well fed this week for pancake Tuesday. Not only did we get to eat some delicious pancakes, we learned how to make them. So now all of the boys in room 13 will be able to look after everyone at home with freshly made pancakes whenever they like.

Credit Union Quiz

On Tuesday 6 February two quiz teams from St David’s BNS attended the Credit Union Quiz night in Parnell’s GAA Club. The eight boys were selected from the fifth and sixth classes with two boys from each class participating.

The boys were a credit to the school and their parents on the night. They looked smart in their uniforms, gave their best effort and behaved impeccably.

Well Done Boys! Thanks also to their parents for supporting the event.
