Third Class 1
We have had great fun in third class this September! We have been learning about the counties and towns of Ireland. We went to the computer room to research our chosen county and design a poster or booklet to show what we found.
We conducted an experiment in science class to test how some drinks affect our teeth. We were horrified to see some of the results!
We are quite artistic in third class. We drew abstract portraits. Have a look at our pieces.
We can’t wait to keep up our hard work during October!
December In Third Class
In December we had lots of fun. We learned all about advent and made advent wreaths. We focussed on being kind to each other and opened our advent calendar each day to see what kind deed was on the list. In PE we did GAA on Tuesdays and gymnastics on Monday we are learning how to do a handstand. We made Angels in Art made from recycled materials used from a delivery to the school. We were shocked by the amount of plastic was involved. We wrote plays in Gaeilge as well as Christmas stories. Our Irish is getting better every day. We made gingerbread houses for Christmas. We learned songs for our Christmas concert in English and Irish and had great fun singing them. We are very excited for Christmas.
This month we learned about the Egyptians. We learned about their houses, their gods and about the importance of the River Nile. We also learned about the people who lived in Mesopotamia. We also made up dramas using different hats! We did beautiful prints in art. We learned our tables...again! We did lots of handwriting and singing. We even started to learn the tin-whistle. It was a busy month!
