Fourth Class 1
Ms. Baxter and Ms. Mullins have 29 pupils in Fourth Class. This month we were busy revising our classroom and school rules. We made lovely posters to highlight the importance of these rules. We decorated our Prayer Space with our Prayers for a New School Year. We talked about our hopes and goals for the year. We gave thanks for our friends, family, homes and education.
We completed a piece of art using an adjective to describe ourselves. We were learning about the main organs in our body and focused on our lungs and how we breathe. We are enjoying our new Weaving Well-Being programme.
What a fun month we have had! We enjoyed lots of puzzles, games and problem solving for Maths Week, we created some wonderful pieces of art work using fabric and fibre, blow painting (which was a bit of a challenge!) and symmetrical art.
We learned some old style skipping games with the big rope where the whole class was involved. We can now sing a spooky song in 2 parts and we created a Monster Mash Dance ourselves!
We hope everyone has a wonderful Hallowe’en break. Happy haunting!
Ms. Mullins & Ms. Baxter
Fourth class Ms. Baxter/Ms. Mullins’ class have been busy learning new vocabulary associated with food as Gaeilge. We had great fun doing a drama – Sa Bhialann, using all the language that we acquired.
We really enjoyed presenting our experiments on Materials and Change at the Science fair.
We have been writing acrostic poems with a Winter theme.
This month 4th class have been very busy researching for projects on our local area in Palmerstown. The girls were very interested in this project and their finished work was really wonderful. We all learned a lot about the history and geography of Palmerstown. Thank you to Ms Mullins and to all the parents, guardians and extended family members who shared their knowledge with the children.
We really enjoyed our visitor from Xquisite Dance who did a dance workshop with the children.
Here is a selection of our art work based on New Year and Winter themes.
Ms Baxter and Ms Mullins’ fourth class were involved in a lot of active Maths using 2- Dimensional shapes this month.
They also completed wonderful projects about Strong Women, which will be displayed in March!
They made wonderful Valentine’s cards for their loved ones.
