CLASS OF 2019 - 2020
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
The countdown for Christmas has begun in 3rd class. We have started singing Christmas songs in the halla and have completed some wonderful winter creations too! Or classroom has a nice Christmas feel to it!
Celebrating the birth of Jesus in 3rd class
We are still having great fun for science week! Today (14/11/2019) we went to the Rockies GAA centre for a workshop on hand-eye co-ordination! We tried to beat the world record which is 55 hits in 30 seconds. We were a little bit off! Thank you to the parents who dropped by to see some of our experiments in the halla also.
This week is Science Week (11/11/2019 - 15/11/2019) and we kicked off the week with a fun 'Make Your own Lava Lamp experiment! We learned that there was a chemical reaction between the Alka-Seltzer and the water and that oil was less dense than water. We are also looking forward to going to our workshop in the Rockies on Thursday. Here are some of the lava lamp creations in action.
Congratulations to Ellie in third class who won the cake at Friday's cake sale. It looks like a delicious hedgehog! (08/11/2019)
25/10/2019 was dress up day for Halloween and the last day of our first term back at school. All the children had amazing costumes! Enjoy the week off everybody and Happy Halloween! Here are some of our creative Halloween skulls!
How tasty are gingerbread men? We found out all about it last week when we got the opportunity to decorate and design our own gingerbread men and taste the deliciousness. Yum!
Third and fourth class enjoyed a singing lesson as Gaelige with Ciara Ó'Sé's grandad Séan Ó'Sé on Tuesday 15th October. We sang the song 'Trasna na dtonnta'. We also perfomed it for Special Seniors day on Thursday.
In science we continued learning about light as energy and how we need to complete a circuit. We attached copper foil to clothes pegs and used a battery to light up the LEDs. We made the bulbs look like bugs' antenna! (14/10/2019)
Today (09/10/2019) we created 3D shapes in maths out of cocktail sticks and blu tac. We were able to clearly identify the faces, edges and vertices of the shapes we created.
More interesting Science today with Ms Morley (07/10/2019). We investigated how light is a form of energy and how metals are conductors of this energy. We ended up making lighthouses out of the materials. Some very modern and creative lighthouses indeed!
3rd class had an enjoyable science lesson on materials and their properties today (30/09/2019) with Ms Morley. We made tea bags with cling film, tin foil, coffee filters and kitchen roll. We had to investigate which materials would be suitable for making a nice cup of tea! Many of our predictions were correct!
3rd class had an extremely busy day today (27/09/2019). We had our cake sale, Irish dancing, a superhero drama workshop in UCC, our spelling and tables test and some physical activity to make European School Sports Day!
Our drama workshop was the highlight of the day; exploring our imaginations and creative sides! Here are some pictures of the day out!
We decided to give our superheroes a personal touch by putting it down on paper! Here are some of the girls' creations!
Welcome back to school all! Third class have had a busy September so far with many fun activities and many more to follow!
We leanred a lot from Kay in the garden last week as she showed us how to make chutney.
