Welcome to Mr Duke's 5th class section!
School year 2016/17
PE tracksuits are to be worn on Monday and Wednesday.
5th class were studying rocks last week.Mr Duke brought in a selection of rocks to the classroom.There was 3 different types of rocks.There was Igneous,Sedimentary and Metamorphic,all of which were different colours. Some were black ,white and brown. The Metamorphic stone even had tiny crystals.It was a fun activity and a lot more interesting than book work.Some types of Igneous rocks are granite and basalt and marble is a type of Metamorphic rock like slate.Sedimentary rocks are very common in Ireland .Two examples are sandstone and limestone.The best part was we got to use magnifying glasses.
