What do our 5th and 6th Class students think of St. Peter's National School?
Stay up to date with our 5th and 6th class activities on our dedicated Class page.
My name is Katie Mason and I have been teaching for 15 years, 11 of which have been here in St. Peter’s N.S. I have taught all classes from Junior Infants up to 6th class and each class has been memorable and unique. I recently completed a postgraduate diploma in Educational Leadership and Management in Maynooth University and enjoy engaging in further professional development courses. I love bumping into past pupils and their families to hear how they’re all getting on as they move through secondary school and into the wider world.
This year I am teaching 5th and 6th class. There are 9 pupils in 6th class and 15 pupils in 5th class. All subjects are taught in our classroom and we incorporate group work into the school day where possible. So far this year my class are really enjoying Art lessons and have recently taken part in the Credit Union Art competition. I love seeing how pupil’s personalities mature and develop in the senior classes and we do lots of SPHE lessons to make sure pupils feel comfortable and prepared for moving to secondary school. Science, Geography and History lessons are great to teach in the senior classes too as it is lovely to see children’s own knowledge shining through whilst also building on it with new lessons and project work.
