We did some fun STEM experiments during Science Week. We also visited Jacqui’s 1st Class’ amazing Science Fair! We completed a tricky science table quiz too.
We have done lots of work based on our class novel, and we’re only half way through! Have a look…
We officially sent off our fantastic Write A Books and have received amazing books from another school to read and judge. It’s a tough job but someone’s gotta do it!!!!
We have completed our Write A Book projects and have worked very hard on them. They will be sent off to be judged by another school, but we know that no matter what the result is, we are all very happy and proud authors.
We have begun reading our class Novel ‘Kaspar Prince of Cats’. We retold the first through chapters through improvisation in small groups. We really are Drama Queens in our class!
As we are taking part in Discover Primary Science this year, we will have lots of science experiments to do over the next couple of months. We tested our senses with the ‘Smelly Pots’ experiment.
We made some stunning lanterns and painted some fabulous Roosters to celebrate the Year of the Rooster!
We hope you enjoyed our play! We put a lot of effort into it and were very proud of our performance.
3rd Class had to construct a home that was inspired from somewhere around the world. We used photos of various homes from various locations as our starting point. We had lots of discussions about the types of homes in Ireland and abroad and their functionality. We then went home and created some magnificent pieces (with just a little help from our parents!)
Have a look…
Our theme this month is ‘Homes’. Check out the amazing ‘Dream Homes’ we created…
Bhí Lá Gaelach ar siúl ar 16ú Samhain. Bhí an-chraic againn! Bhaineamar taitneamh as Ceol, Ealaín agus cluchí trí Ghaeilge.
We are very lucky to have four amazing girls from 6th class come to do some fun maths activities with us every second Friday. We even get to use calculators!
We focused on tinting and shading in Art this month, as well as the colour wheel. Have a look at one of our pieces – Primary Monsters!
We planned interviews for different people in our school community. We focused on appropriate questions and our presentation skills. We were so lucky to have Rose and Helen visit our class to be interviewed about their lives and their roles in our school community.
The game of the week was Snakes and Ladders! We also did some really tricky word problems, and finished off our ‘Addition’ topic.
Grace Garde from the ‘Heritage for Schools’ scheme came to visit our class. She did a presentation all about bees. It was really interesting. We then went outside for a biodiversity walk and Grace showed us many different plants, trees and weeds and explained how they were an important part of our ecosystem.
Every Thursday teacher Grace will be coming in to our room to do some fun maths station work with us. We do a mix of games, independent work and problem solving. We work to a timer and change stations after 10 minutes. It is great having two teachers in the room! Have a look at what we get up to…
We did a tricky cup challenge to help our group work skills. We had 4 pieces of string, an elastic band and 6 cups. We had to make a tower using the cups but we could not use our hands to touch the cups. It was tricky but we worked really well together.
We did some peer portraits. Have a look at our fantastic work!
‘Maths About Me!’
We have been working on our mapping skills. We have made maps of our classroom and school.
We made family trees that went as far back as our grandparents – and even some of our great-grandparents made an appearance!
